Featherlite blower FL15000 short of breath

I bought this blower at a flea market it ran fine when I tested it ,I paid 30.00 for it ,The problem started when I got it home and tried to use it.After about 5 minutes of use the blower begins to slow down to almost no pressure to blow a little dirt I have tried to adjust the carburator screw but it has not helped.Any ideas will be helpful.Thanks Don

Could be several different things, but the first thing to check would be the fuel cap to make sure it's venting properly, simply loosen the cap a little when it starts slowing down and see if this has any effect on the way it runs.

The next thing to check would be the fuel filter in the fuel tank, and the condition of the fuel lines.

This should be enough to get you started. Let us know what you find.
