  • Check the fuel lines for blockages, and filter on the end of fuel line in the tank. Also, if it bogs down when you rev, I've had it before where the exhaust port was blocked up with carbon which was the cause.

      Have you got it working yet David 

      What was the cause ? 

      Having similar problems with an older machine i mixed with E 5 . 

      I ran down the fuel in tank mechanic supplied after it was serviced . no problems at all .

      Made up a mix with the E5 petrol and keeps cutting out , using the one shot 50 to 1 mix so it must be acurate . 

      Maybe E5 is no good with 2014 old machine . 



      • it runs and starts fine for say a hour but this was for 3 or 4 hours heavy use i still susect that it wad E10 petrol sold as E5
