It sounds like you are cutting something heavier than your saw can handle. I would check the manual and the limitations of your saw. If it is getting bogged down when sawing very small, thin things then the chain might need to be replaced. Don't keep using it until you have replaced the chain if that is the case.

SOURCE: saw runs for 5 minutes and bogs out

This is sometimes caused by dirt in the gas tank. When the saw is off and being moved around the dirt settles to the bottom. The saw will start OK and rev up but after a while the dirt gets shaken up and sticks to the fuel filter in the tank. When enough dirt covers the filter the saw looses power or dies all together. Sometimes it will get enough gas to idle but not enough to run at high speed. With the tank half full, shake the saw to get all the dirt stired up and dump it out. Put a little gas in it and shake & dump it again. If you can fish the fuel line with the filter on it out, remove the filter and either replace it or blow it out. If this doesn't cure all your problems you may have leaks in the fuel line to the carb that are letting in more air than gas causing your power problems.

Bogs down while cutting does carb need adj.


Every saw is going to bog down some when cutting. What condition is the blade? I would need more information on what kind of saw it is in order to try and help. Is this gas powered? Wet saw? Wood, concert or steel?

42cc 18 inch craftsman chainsaw model 358-351910-18. Saw runs great at idle or while not cutting wood, when starting to cut wood just after the entire bar gets into the wood engine bogs down and chain...


Generally this is a fuel / air ratio problem. Usually it can be solved by a carb adjustment. On the carb there are usually two screws, one marked low or L , the other marked high or H. Low is your adjustment for idle mixture, high is for mixture at full throttle. The saw should Always be adjusted to run well during the cut. Make adjustments a little at a time, then try The saw. Continue small adjustments untill the saw is performing well at full throttle while Cutting.

The saw bogs down after 10 min of cutting.


Look for fuel flow problems...filters, straingers, gummed up carb, etc.

What are the carb. adjs. on a Mc culloch chain saw model cs 38em


If it bogs down like it's getting too much fuel, turn the low side screw out about 1/8 of a turn at a time until it will rev without bogging. If it chokes down like it's not getting any fuel, you probably need to open up the high screw a little.

BTW, you can determine which screw is which by looking at the carb at the base of the screw...it will have a L for Low or H for High stamped near it.

While cutting the chainsaw bogs down and stops


Check the air filter and the muffler if either are plugged up it will not run smooth. Carb hi and low screws are very sensitive so if you change them, only move them a little at a time.

When cutting with my husky 440 16'' the chain catches or stops


It's hard to say. 41CCs should handle a 16" chain reasonably well.
  1. What are you cutting? Hard woods oak and maple are more difficult than pine.
  2. Are you digging in the dogs and trying to force the saw through the wood? Let the saw determine how fast it wants to cut, I rarely engage the dogs on my 359, I let the weight of the saw work for me.
  3. How sharp is your chain? Have the rakers been filed to low?
  4. Is the saw bogging down at speed before contacting the wood?
  5. Your saw was set extremely lean to meet EPA requirements. It is fitted with adjustment limiters also mandated by the EPA. To lean can impact how it performs.
All of these and few not coming to mind effect how fast the saw cuts. This isn't the answer you wanted but it is honest. We would have to see you cut and examine your saw to provide anything better. HTH

Loses power when trying to cut wood


Check the muffler screens first. Then the spark plug. If not the case, then adjust the High setting on your carb. Prolly starving for fuel under engine load. If it is still a problem, Pull the carb and clean it.
