On year 3 with this and to this point I have not had any problems. Took down a maple today and wanted to s&s this afternoon. 1st time running splitter in many months so did my usual check all fluids, bolts, nuts, etc. Filled with fresh gas and was very hard to start. When it did initially run it seemed it only ran for a few seconds. After many primer bulb pushing and starts I finally got it to stay running. Ran the ram thru a few cycles and even though the engine just didn't sound right I attempted my first split. It stalled when under load. Got it started again and let it run for several minutes but same result. Checked air filter, took off bowl to check float...all seemed fine. Any idea what's going on here?
