gave it to you? did he do anything to the carb? did he store it properly, it sounds like the carb needs a disassemble and cleaning. make sure the in tank filter isn't clogged as well.

It sounds like the throttel is sticking spray it with some carb. cleaner or WD40
if that dosent work you may have to do a major cleaning. I allways try the easyer way first.

I have the same exact problem with the same blower.
I had mine since new
the problem started by stalling hot and not restarting, and got worse from there
it acts like no fuel
I replaced the carb with oem replacement and this carb has 2 adjusting screws that you can not turn.
It seemed to run better at first but after 10 minutes it was the same way again
I have tons of leaves to move Can Anyone help?
