    I have had mine for a month and one day it seemed like i lost a lot of power. I did exactly like that hard as hell. Maybe this has something due to the break in period. Ask your local stihl dealer.

    If I remember right, manual says not to go full power for the first 5 tanks. Plus, use the Stihl ultra oil, makes a huge difference.

    When I bought mine, my dealer said to use it at half throttle for the first 5 tanks of fuel.
