My experience so far has been frustrating. It started and ran ok with a being little bit lean yesterday. I thought well it should cut wood. I'll get the splined carb tool later. Tried cutting this morning and it wouldn't run except with the choke on. So gave up on it and used my Echo 400. Called a local poulan dealer to see if he had the tool. He said he might have an extra but bring it by and he would adjust it. He seems like a really good guy. I told him I would stop by this afternoon. I really wanted to cut some wood this morning even if it wouldn't be at it's best (lean and skip chain).
