Yeah it can be a bit frustrating at first with that saw but you’ll get a routine down for the different conditions when the saw it cold/warm/hot. I’m not sure about your buds saw- a lot of times nowadays you can’t adjust the carb and you have to replace it to make the device run right. That’s what happened to my new Husqvarna backpack blower, it bogged down when trying to accelerate it and I took it in for warranty work and they had to replace the carburetor on it.It is indeed the 24... I think in the future, i'm going to get a 20" bar for it but get the new lightweight Husky bar that came out. Dealer said its pricey though...
I think i shouldnt have pressed the decompression button after running it for a very short while. I think that is what somewhat flooded it. To clear it I just kept pulling until that sucker started spitting some smoke... lol. Either way, will get used to it by using it. I plan on cutting Saturday. My buddies 590 is new and for some reason it bogs on throttle pull (not in a cut) You think he needs to richen it up a bit? I know they say they come really lean from Echo.
BTW- I do lawncare in the summer and I mostly use Husqvarna for equipment as it seems I get more for the money from their products. My newest mower is a 72" 31hp fuel injected Husqvarna zero turn model that just gobbles up the grass! It’s a real nice ride.
