Snow Blower Lacking Power?
I have an MTD 21" single stage 123cc... it wasn't too bad the first year I remember using it, yes it wasn't that great but I seem to recall it having a bit more pushing power than it does now. It seems to die rather easily now, get stuffed, and one thing I've noticed is that I've never been able to run it properly after fully releasing the choke. So I've always had to leave a bit of choke... which doesn't seem quite right?
I can do a basic tune-up, oil and E3 spark plug, but I'm just wondering if this unit will never have enough power so I should just go for a bigger unit. Not interested in a huge 2-stage, don't have that much to clear, but maybe a bigger engine single stage. But I wonder if I could do something to get a bit more out of this unit.
Its not very old, say 3 years? And looks almost new even, just the lack of power and the inability to run properly without choke (it will stall too easily without choke, when pushing through snow).
