SOURCE: Homelite leaf blower bogs down.

I don't mean to over simplify this, but are you using fresh gas? Gas blowers are extremely ticky when it comes to gas. They like it SUPER fresh. And while the gas and oil mixture should be right, it can be off a little bit and still run. Try draining all of the gas out, and then filling up with fresh mix. This is ALWAYS my first step with gas blowers, and it fixes the problem 75% of the time. Also make sure your spark plug is clean. If you are not sure, a new plug couldn't hurt.
Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: Ryobi backpack blower will run all day with choke

Thats a lean condition. Check fuel lines and fuel filter. If the fuel ilnes are discolored or stiff or really super mushy, If the fuel filter has become detatched from the fuel line then the fuel lines need to be replaced.
If the carb can be adjusted you can try to adjust but its likely that the carb should be rebuilt with new diaghrams and gaskets.
Adjust by turning the low speed screw out ( counterclockwise) 1/2 a turn. The low speed screw is always the one closest to the motor and usually marked on the carb body with an 'L'. When you richen a motor up the idle will drop so you will probably have to turn the idle screw in 1/2 a turn. 1 and 1/2 turns out from light bottom is standard starting point ( 2 turns for poulan products). If you get more than 3 and 1/2 turns out on the low speed screw or if turning the screw has little or no effect then the carb should be rebuilt.

SOURCE: bogs down at full thouldel tryed to adjust carberator

Hi
This is either a clogged muffler or carb. Take the off and see if it will rev. If not you need to clean carb and install a carb repair kit. Do not run long with muffler off.

My blower runs but does not have great blowing power.


Clean out the intake of the blower, more than likely it is clogged with leaves. Also make sure your fuel mixture is correct, to much oil will bog it down.

How do I adjust needle valves on a 25cc Homelite UT08111A Backpack leaf blower?


Set the lowend & highend needles to about 1 3/4 to 2 turns each. Choke the carb or prime it, until the carb is wet. Fire up the engine and let it warm up. Let's set the topend first since it's the easier of the two. Go to full throttle. Adjust the topend needle for peak RPM. Leave it wide open for about a minute to see if it changes any. Should the engine go lean, open the lowend needle slightly, if this dosen't work... you will have to adjust the needle valve inside the carb.( I will explain this later) If the topend runs OK, then slowly pull the throttle down until the engine begins to "four cycle" hold the throttle there. Adjust the lowend needle until the "four cycling" barely stops. Now lower the throttle more until it "four cycles" again, and adjust the lowend again. Keep doing this until you reach full idle. Now, from full idle begin to throttle up until the engine starts to bog or hesitate. Open up the lowend needle just enough to eliminate the bog or hesitation.

I have let my leaf blower run and warm up before throttling up and still it bogs down and shuts down. There is no air cleaner to clean should I just blow out the carb. and fuel lines?
