How to keep your engines from stalling [SOLVED]

When throttle is at full speed, my 2-cycle Husqvarna leaf blower revs up and then abruptly slows down almost to the point of stalling. Is this something that may be cured by using one of your products? I also have a Toro 4-cycle snow blower that is doing the same thing. Again, do you have any suggestions that would remedy this problem. Please let me know.

Thanks for the question Bruce. Both engines have carburetor fuel systems and both seem to have a carburetor restriction, likely caused by old fuel varnish. The product you want to add to each fuel tank is Sea Foam Motor Treatment. What I’d do: Add a quarter can to you leaf blower’s fuel tank, then the other three-quarters to your snowblower tank. Start and let the engines idle for a bout 4 or 5 minutes, then shut off and let soak for a day or more. When ready to run again, start up and see what happens. If your carburetors were suffering from varnish restrictions, everything should start to run better after a few minutes of warm up and operation.
