Problems with my HomeLite UT20760 bogs down, no power

I'm having problems with my HomeLite TrimLite UT20760 running with any power this season. It starts OK on choke with primer pumped 8 times, and will idle fairly smoothly with the choke full open (position 3).

When I pull the accelerator trigger it bogs down or dies unless I carefully rev it up with little pumps of the trigger. Running wide open with the trigger pulled all the way there is very little power and it doesn't come up to the full rpms it used to.

Takes 45 minutes to do what I used to do in 10 minutes. HELP!

Try this
you need to locate your muffler and find screws that remove a screen behind a plate you can remove on the muffler or behind the muffler itself
This screen is a spark arrestor screen and needs to be cleaned and put back or some would say discard all together, but i didnt say that.
give it a look see
this may be your problem and maybe not?
if it was you will see a trmendous difference afterwards
