Mini roto-tiller - looses power (stalls under a load)?

I have a 2-stroke Homelite mini roto-tiller that just wants to stall when it is put to work... any idea why? The spark plug looks "ok". I blew out the carb and air filter with compressed air. I serviced the clutch and worm gear box myself a while back and it worked good for a while. Now it just wants to stall when it is put to work. Could it be a carb setting? I don't have an operation manual, so I am reluctant to touch the settings on the carb.

Any ideas, suggestions or advice would be great! I could just take it to a mechanic, but this might warrant buying a new one... I'm not crazy about spending money on repairs if I can figure it out myself.

Most likely a carb problem. Have you checked fuel lines for pinholes/cracks? You'll probably have to disassemble and clean the carb. You could try backing out the high speed screw just a tad. (the screw closest to the air filter, usually marked with an H on the carb).
