I have let my leaf blower run and warm up before throttling up and still it bogs down and shuts down. There is no air cleaner to clean should I just blow out the carb. and fuel lines?
It runs and idles just no high speed to blow.

have you checked air filter? the carb may need adjusting. locate the adjustment screw(s) , screw them all the way in then back out 1-1/2 turns. try to start the engine. then let me know what happens.

Set the lowend & highend needles to about 1 3/4 to 2 turns each. Choke the carb or prime it, until the carb is wet. Fire up the engine and let it warm up. Let's set the topend first since it's the easier of the two. Go to full throttle. Adjust the topend needle for peak RPM. Leave it wide open for about a minute to see if it changes any. Should the engine go lean, open the lowend needle slightly, if this dosen't work... you will have to adjust the needle valve inside the carb.( I will explain this later) If the topend runs OK, then slowly pull the throttle down until the engine begins to "four cycle" hold the throttle there. Adjust the lowend needle until the "four cycling" barely stops. Now lower the throttle more until it "four cycles" again, and adjust the lowend again. Keep doing this until you reach full idle. Now, from full idle begin to throttle up until the engine starts to bog or hesitate. Open up the lowend needle just enough to eliminate the bog or hesitation.
hope this helps :)

Is the new gas some you just mixed up from the gas station or is from the can in the garage? If it is indeed fresh then you are looking at needing the carburetor adjusted. Sorry you can not do it yourself, The epa only allows qualified technician to adjust them. Plus the tool to do so are not available to the general public.
