The Gift 038 ran good for a little while. Now it's hard to start and powers out. Sounds like it's running out of gas at WOT. I'm thinking it wants a close look at the lines and maybe run through the carb.
I haven't checked the compression but it pulls nice and hard. I took off the exhaust and the piston looks fine.

I don't have time to mess with it right now so on the shelf she goes until maybe this winter.

hedgerow, I was just saying my experiences with the 038 in logging.
At that time if a 2 man crew of a faller and skidder operator couldn't average 20 cords of treelength softwood piled in the landing in a 8 hour day we were down the road out of a job.
For a homeowner or 10 cord a year firewood cutter you can't beat the 038AV for reliability and ease of working on. 
A very well made saw.
