Chainsaw "Bogs Out"

Question

JacobMHD

I have a Husqvarna 235 e series chainsaw that has hardly been used. Recently, it started "bogging out" when at full throttle. Does anyone have a suggestion or remedy for this? Thanks for the advice.

Had it been sitting for a while and then it didn't run properly when you starting using it recently(again)? Or had it been running fine and the problem started? If the gas is old that may be part of the problem. If it had been sitting there may have been some gas in the carb that "gummed up" the needle(or whatever it may be called). You may have to pull the carb apart a little bit and just get that needle freed up and moving freely.

Have you cleaned or replaced the air filter recently? If it isn't breathing properly WOT may be flooding it out.

Good advice, it hasn't been used since last spring. I will check out your suggestions. Thanks.

99% chance that it's the carb. Rebuild kits are cheap and easy.

Happened on my Husky 55 Rancher. Sitting all summer, bad gas - carb needed cleaning.

Old gas, dirty carb, or high speed adjustment. Try fresh gas then the high speed adjustment.

Try using seafoam mixed with a tank of non-oxygenated fuel first before you get a carb rebuild kit.c63

Don't forget to use a gas stabilizer in your small engine gas year round. This eliminates a ton of carb issues

The non-oxygenated fuel (premium) is good advice. I use it in everything I use intermittently; chainsaw, auger, lawnmower, snowblower, outboards. In my experience, it seems that without the ethanol(and possibly some of the other additives) that the premium gas "keeps" better than "regular".

The Seafoam is another good suggestion. I usually run a little Seafoam through everything we have the burns gasoline. I probably put one can every other month in my truck and one can a month through my wife's car (she puts on about 2,000/month). My wife's car is a 2003, has about 190K and runs like a top (knock on wood). I run about half a can of Seafoam through the oil in the car for 250 - 500 miles before every 3rd oil change. I dump a can of it in my big boat before I store it and every spring when I start it for the first time it starts instantly.

I am a big believer in Seafoam.

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?

      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.

      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.

      Thanks Borch - Star Island looks really interesting and Cass is a lake I've always meant to get to, but never have. Have you ever fished Windigo?  I'm assuming the only way to do it would be to fish from shore or carry in a canoe or kayak.  Sure would be interesting to fish on a lake within a lake.
