Sounds like you may have a carburetor issue. I rebuilt my original carburetor myself to a so-so performance. Then to be certain it was right I bought a remanufactured OEM carb from a reputable rebuilder and had to send it back 3 times before I finally gave up and kept using my old one. Eventually I went with the Weber replacement carburetor. The original Hitachi carburetors are over complicated junk. Of course depending on where you live you may be stuck with it...
