I usually touch up the mixtures every time I start to do a little serious cutting.

My 5105 was very rich when I got it.

Learn to identify the "two stroke" - "Four stroke" point and use that as your reference setting?

The accepted measure is to adjust the chainsaw to run (when in the cut) just barely into the two stroke phase. If you lift up on the chainsaw slightly, the engine will four stroke. If you just rev up the chainsaw not in the wood, it will four stroke at the top end.

The problem with late model chainsaws is not to confuse the rev limiting ignition with four stroking!
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .
