How do I adjust the H circuit on the carburetor? This thing runs so rich out of the box that it loads up and stalls when used at 5K ft elevation.
Asked by: 65BAJA
I've used this saw twice. Once up at about 6400 ft and I'm sorry to say it ran like garbage. WAY to rich out of the box. The second time was at about 1400 ft. Even there it was still rich and would not run clean. After a quick adjustment of the H needle on the carb though I am very happy with its performance. Running a 118 link chisel chain on a 37" Oregon reduced weight bar. Nice balance and worked amazing for bucking about 60' of a a downed digger pine that was around 40" on the stump. For anyone that wants to know the H needle is a "single D".

Thank you for your questions. The EA7900PRZ2 79 cc Chain Saw is equipped with a decompression valve which reduces force required for starting.

Long runtime, smooth operation and Incredible sound and power. And it's beautiful! This saw feels like it will last forever. Reason 4 stars was 3 tiny bubbles in paint.

Needs to either come with a straight slot on both the L and H needle of the carb or a "single D" on both the H and L needle. One tool for carb adjustment. Not two. Other than that it seems to be very well made. Light weight for its size and plenty of power after the carb is adjusted correctly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect saw I have 2 of these saws, and have had a few of the smaller 6421 saws. These saws are smooth, easy to start, and problem free. I prefer these over the newer Stihls or Huskys any day.
