Husqvarna Leaf Blower

Model 130 BT back pack blower starts and runs at idle speed. At full throttle, engine only runs at about half speed.

I have checked and cleaned the fuel filter with no improvement in performance.

Spark plug somewhat dirty but not real bad.

Cleaned air filter.

What should I do to this blower to improve performance?

Check the muffler/exhaust port for carbon.

I agree, the exhaust is likely plugged.

Blower

Sure enough, the spark arrestor in the muffler assembly was clogged. Cleaned with brake cleaner. Blower works fine now. Thank you to those who helped.
