Question about Poulan Featherlite Gas Blower, with Low Emission Engine, 150 M
I have about 50 hours. Last time used the blower started to slow down on its own with full power set. Next time I tried to start (2 weeks later) would not start. Replaced spark plug (original was sparking ok), replaced air filter, checked fuel filter-not clogged. Used at least 2 times per week for 20-30 minutes--really liked blower, but $60/hour to repair-not worth it. What should I check--compression? Hard to find a good 2 cycle repair manual.

I have the same problem with mine . The FL 1500 model is a older model and the lines that run from the tank to the carb could be brittle and cracked like mine . The only way mine will fire is to spray starting fluid in the carb . It will run for a short time and die like its not getting fuel and everything else checks out ok and im trying to find a new tank and lines for mine at this very moment . The lines had cracks in them everywhere and i believe you have to buy the lines and tank as a unit so if i can find one and get it working ill let you know .

Tim ; if the machine was slowing down while you were using it it sounds like the fuel mixture was too lean ( not enough oil ) you need to check the compression with a compression guage . a 2cycle needs a min of 90 lbs to run , usually you should have 125 lbs check and get back to me
