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.

      Nice work Borch! Or maybe I should say Mrs. Borch?   Looks like I missed out.

      Keys to make the blade work well. *Sharp! *Cutting edge needs to line up to the Gullet of the opposite blade! *Add a .020 shim 1/8" wide between blade screw and cutting edge. Increases cut angle to same as K-Drill! I'm working on another set welding  1/4" piece of blade to the outside blade edge extending the blade 1/2" past auger flight making it a full 8" hole. Note how the K-drill blade extends 1/2" past the auger flights.

      I like your blade work as well. Two summers ago when I sold my hand auger at my garage I think I throw out about 4 sets of those old blades as well!  😣

      Made the drill point out of a spade drill bit welded to a 3/8” 16 bolt/screw than cut & ground to shape the point. Drilled & tapped center of blade bracket. Tap slowly as that steel seem a grade or two above basic mild steel.

      Thank you

      That is some sweet work right there. I see these at garage sales all summer, may be I should start picking them up?  Looks like you added a drill point on the end of them as well. The adapters and the end point are key items on making these right.

      I went a different route, got several vintage Mora 7 1/2" hand augers $10 to $15 each with the old hardened sweedish steel blades modified to replicate K-drill style blades #5. Went with clam plate 3/4" drive bit & M18 Fuel Mud Mixer worked ok on early ice #1. Wanted to try my DeWalt/Jiffy so converted to the 7/8" drive bit, didn't have the power to cut the agressive blade #2. Later ice in Wheelhouse, went with my Eskimo 43cc with a Walker 25' flex exhaust out the door, cut 32" ice in 27 seconds #3. Ran 4 1/2 holes to 1 of my buddies new green ION 8in. Made some adapters to put the 7/8" auger bits on my Clam Plate and Mud Mixer#4 for early ice this comming season.

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.
