I bought a Husky 455 rancher a few years ago--had a problem w/ my ancient McCulloch that I thought was terminal, but wasn't. In general, I like this saw. It cuts like a champ. Starts great when it's cold--prime the bulb, 2 or 3 pulls, and we're ready to work. But today, was doing light duty, trimming limbs, so saw idled a lot and didn't warm up like it would when bucking thru heavy stuff. I shut it off for a few minutes, then could not restart it. It's flooded. I've had this happen a few times in the past. Anyone know how to deal with this? It pisses me off to be in the middle of work and have to shut down for hours. With my old Mac I'd back out the spark plug, dry things out, or shoot some starting ether into the carb if it balked about starting. But with all the plastic shroud on this saw, I'm not sure where to start. Been searching on the internet figuring someone would have a cure, but all I've found is complaints. The saw is great when running, but re-starting this thing after it's been running requires a Zen master or something. I've just moved to Colorado rockies, 6400 ft. elevation, outside Boulder, but somehow I doubt it's an altitude issue, since I had the same problem on the plains in Oklahoma. Wish I had my old Mac at hand, but it's at camp in another state. Any tips? I mixed new fuel the other day, 50:1, so that shouldn't be an issue.
