I have a 22 ton splitter that is a few years old now and am starting to have problems with it. Earlier in the season I had the spring break that goes from the gov to the throttle lever. Now it seems that it has a bad gov. I can't get it to start unless I manually close or choke the butterfly to the carb and once it's running it never seems to go to full throttle. The pump really struggles when I try to split an average 8-10" round and if I push the gov forward it revs up to full throttle but then idles back down when I let go. Anyone else have this problem or experience something like this? It's a Briggs & Stratton engine and only a few years old. One problem I could be dealing with is that fact that I transport it a lot. I would still think it should be able to hold up though. Any thoughts?
