Leaves?? Still more than a month away from dealing with that here.
Stihl engineers not too smart to come out with a hard starting piece like the bg86...and then keep it on the market for years on end without improving it. Hardest starting pos in the heat I've ever owned....My Bg86 I have to full choke to start it. After priming it 20x
It has been a pita
The damn thing is DESIGNED to be hard starting. You HAVE to follow the stupid sequence to start the bg86 and if you dont, in the heat, its all over.Never had an issue like this. If it's hard starting it simply needs the carb adjusted, if you're unable to do it, take it to your mechanic or maybe try YouTube.
