Question about Homelite Garden
Exactly what its doing most likely. Unable to get any number from IPL on which carburetor on it has but if it has a "H" mixture screw it needs adjusting. I thinking that it is running too at full throttle.

SOURCE: Not running at full throttle
close to the carb you will find two tiny screws. They are labeled H and L. L sets the idle speed. H sets the max RPM. Hold the throttle wide open and turn the H screw. When you find the very top end, back it down some or it will be running too lean. That would make it run hot, and provides less lubrication. Could result in engine failure if you run it too lean.

Sometimes the transferred metal feels like compression.
The volume of most chainsaws is so small it makes a HUGE difference in the reading; depending on which end of the compression tester the Schrader valve is mounted (should be spark plug end). If the total cylinder volume is only 2 cubic inches and the hose adds an additional cubic inch you can see how it will impact.

ArboristSite Chainsaw thread (free to join)
There are some threads about using acid to remove metal transfer from cylinder walls. There are some Homelite collectors. There are a bunch of good people that enjoy lending a little expertise. I am not a Homelite guy, I have done some research for Homeys and often you must buy an entire short block.
You may find this helpful too:
Homelite/Ryobi.com (authorized parts supplier)
https://www.gardnerinc.com/recons/disclaimer-lg.php - Agree; Choose “Product Line”; “Select OEM” & “Select Catalog” both to “Homelite Consumer Products”. A drop down list appears; self explanatory from here.
The numbers Homelite & Ryobi use do not match the numbers everyone posts. A careful inspection of your saw should find something that matches.
your question impressed me so much I almost did not answer. It is so though and well thought I though you had been at this for a while and knew exactly what to do next and were pulling my leg. Good on you. You will be welcomed at ArboristSite. Good Luck

Testimonial: "Very thorough and helpful feedback"
My 16" Ranger had the same problem. Here's how to fix it. Take off the top cover and the red side cover to acess the carburator. Take the top off the carb; there is a single screw that holds it on. Inside you will see a 10mm round indention. This is a final screen fuel filter. Mine had a layer of light brown dirt over the screen. Take a small screwdriver and carefully scrape the dirt off. You don't need to clean the carb any further or adjust the H and L settings or anything. Put it back together and it should run with no bogging. down.
