Up until yesterday, my Mcullock 332 chainsaw was fine, but now as I go to cut a log, the power goes and it cuts out. There is not a problem restarting, but i have to leave the choke out otherwise it stops.
Martyn, It sounds like you have Carby problems. Try squirting some carby cleaner down into carby where ever you can reach with the spray, if this does not fix it, you will need to remove the carby & take it apart, clean it all really well, then put it back together, whilst you have it apart, check that the inlet needle is not grooved, if it is grooved, you'll need to replace it. Good Luck. Stevo.

My bc1000xl was doing the same thing all gauges working fine engine kept cutting out about every 2-3 minutes found water temp sensor wire that goes to the computer and disconected it. Problem fixed but get a new sensor as soon as possible in case of a real overheat
Probably your carb needs adjustment.There are usually 2 jets on those carbs, one for the start and idle, the other for the power load. Use your manual to find the power jet adjustment screw, then follow directions to turn the adjustment screw in 1/4 turn increments until it doesn't stall under load. If you don't have the manual go to: www.shoptoro.com Find the manual download for your model. Wish you the best!
90 weight only. Fill through top until level with side opening. If it is leaking, it has likely blown it's seals. If leak is slow, just keep checking and filling it. If it's just flowing out, it's best to replace the box. No too fun. I've had to do it twice in about 15 years. Hope this helps a little:)
I've never seen the ad for a weed thrasher but, as far as a replacement cord goes. You can buy a extension cord of the same size and install it. Just cut off the end. The wires within the cord need to be the same size or bigger, never smaller. Also it's important to replace a 3 wire cord with a 3 wire cord. You can use a 3 wire cord with a machine that came with a 2 wire cord, just cut off the green wire at the machine end. Your wire colors should be white, black, and green. Black and white are your power wires and green is your ground. Usually black and white are interchangeable but, on occasion switching them may make the unit run backwards so install them in their original position. Write down where they where hooked up and install your new cord in the same places.
