My 026 just doesn't cut it. I wonder if there is something wrong with it. My 034 is twice the saw and only 1/2 horse more. It has no zip,takes a long time to get to full rpm's, has little torque and stalls after a minute of idling. Don't matter how I adjust the carb, it's always been this way a year after I bought it. Many times I wanted to trade it for a 346xp or a Dolmar 5100 but I'd loose 400 bucks so I grab the 034 almost always. My 06 is good for limbs and that's about it, no more than 6" dia.
