Craftsman Chainsaw

I have a Craftsman Chainsaw that when I try to use it starts to bog down. I really seem to notice it when I turn the blade horizontal to make a cut. I can feather the throttle and keep it running but when it hits the wood it bogs and/or dies. It will re crank right away but does the same thing. Any help is appreciated.

Does this engine run poorly when you are not cutting?

It seems to run okay wide open. Once I ge it bogged down I have to feather it and then it is a challenge from there.

We don't know what saw you have, as you didn't give any saw numbers or sizes. Have you tried to adjust the mixture screws??? If this is an older saw, I think you may just bite the bullet & tear into a carb kit if the fuel & air filter are O.K. & all the fuel/pulse lines are in good shape... I assume you tried a spark plug?? The chain is filed & the rakers are not too low causing the chain to grab & stop?? Let us know, Good Luck, Roger
