at a stihl dealer in waconia, mn
talked to the manager and he said he would have it figured out and remedied (hopefully)
you guys have been most helpful steering me in the right direction and when i get it back (or a trade), i'll be back 'cuz i want to explore the feedback i got re: carb adjustment etc.
should a novice really be messing with carb settings ? i suspect not,,
so any of you guys in the twincities, mn area ?
