Question about Craftsman Garden
Most likely low compression caused by stuck piston rings or a scored piston and cylinder. This unit was made by Poulan and they have had an epidemic of this problem. The solution is to tear the unit down and put in new piston rings. Before you install the new rings you need to get a sheet of glass and some 600 grit wet dry sand paper. Sand each ring down about .002 to .003 and reinstall. This should solve your problem as long as you have good fire and the piston and cylinder is not scored.

50 PSI compression on mine. Should be 100-110. I thought the 50 hrs rating was for compliance to emissions; a friend repairs garden tractors, blowers, weed whackers, ... informed me this is generally the life expectancy. That is just about what I got out of it, three seasons between leaf blowing and grass cutting clean up I got a little more than 50 hrs :( He recommended Echo.
