Was it warm or cold when you went to cut with it?

Let it warm up a bit and then give it a few bursts on the trigger, longer each time and slowly increasing the revs, then give it a longer burst at about half revs or so to warm the engine, then give it full blast and do the cut. It sounds like it's stalling because you're opening it up too much before it's warm.
Good luck,
Jonty

i used to knock the foam filter about to get the dust out of it and if it got a problem starting and the paper filter needed cleaning id take it to a garage and get it blown out with an air line.
