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.

      I didn't find it, just passing the info of a post I saw on Craigslist. One would think if they could access the information, it would be a done deal.

      Any reports on Grindstone lake? What have y’all been catching and what size?
    • leech~~
      Couldn't you find any contact info or was the battery dead?

      You’ll like em.  And these temps are exactly the reason to invest in gear like that.  I just spent the entire day out fishing in mine.  Temp topped out at 5; wind gusts and snow.  Half the time in the open and half in a poorly heated flip over.

      Post on Craigslist that a person found a phone on North Center lake.....under sporting goods.

      Cars seem to be going to all areas of the lake.  Very light traffic.  I wasn't home this weekend so I don't know what was going on.

      Shiners are hard to find right now. If you can get smaller suckers those worked good.  I fished 32ft off edge of mud flat last weekend. Everything we caught was on Bobber or rattle reel. Tried everything from tinglers to rippin raps last weekend for jigging, no luck.  The extreme cold did not help.  I usually do good jigging. I usually fish 3ft off bottom that deep.  Every fish we did catch was over 25 inches. 4 total the whole weekend. Missed a few others. Rattle reels worked well. Orange glow seemed to be a good glow Jig.

      1.21.19 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report, NW Angle of LOW,

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      We are making ice up here at Sunset Lodge and with fresh snow coming the trails should be in great shape.

      In Minnesota, we are seeing really nice saugers mixed in with walleye in 26-29ft. Rippin raps and rattle baits are calling fish to the house during slower portions of the day. Pink and white remains the favored color combo. Work these baits aggresively as they will attract fish, mellow out as fish appear on electronics, then finesse them with a more subtle presentation to seal the deal.

      Crappies continue to come in from Canada. Electronics are key with a small presentation such as a tungsten jig with a small piece of minnow. Walleye action is hot off points and reefs on flats between 24-28 ft. 

      Until next week!

      Liberty beach 20 dollar weekend pass with free drink token lol. I ended going out of hunters to the mud flats last weekend.  Didn't see liberty beach sign until next day. Not sure how far there roads go out. Hunters was having problems keeping roads open due too cracking.  But they always had options to get in.  1 hour to get off lake Sunday as center road was closed.  Lots of people going out and some of the people were driving too fast on the roads. I was going 10 mph hauling my wheel house and had a guy pass me on way in with a tandem so... It is was it is.

      Thanks, guys.  I ended up going with the Striker Climate bibs and jacket.  Ultimately I wanted things with removable liners so I could use them in late fall and early spring as well, even as late as fishing opener.  I searched high and low for the Clam Ascent stuff, as I wanted the free boots , but nobody has the jackets in 2X or 3X, only the bibs were in stock.  The store in Roseville that sells guns and skis had 30% off all ice fishing clothing which made the Striker stuff a bit easier to swallow since Striker jacks the price up for extended sizes.  I ended up buying the Combat gloves too.  Haven't had a chance to use any of it yet, and probably not looking great with the single digits coming up later this week and plans on the weekend.  At least we're making ice!
