Re: Chainsaw winter adjustments?

Yes, I think so. I managed to get about half way through a 32" white oak log, but it was just short burst, then sluggishness. I was wondering if the H screw needed to be opened a little to make it run richer.

I made sure the filter was clean, and have looked to see if there are any damper gates for the air flow, but don't see any. I just bought new high octane non ethanol gas, and mixed synthetic Stihl oil. The closest station that keep non ethanol is a small neighborhood station. I'm wondering if they get a different formula gas for Summer and Winter, and if I got what was left over from Summer.
