My guess is there is still a trace of shipping preservative in the carburetor, it has to be squeaky clean for the engine to run properly. Try choking it as it is running, the extra fuel may flush it.

It didn't crack under normal usage. Go to the lumber yard, purchase some boards, build a bridge and get over it. You have been whining all over the net. Stihl warranty is one year.

Both are good brands, hard to get a pro logger to use anything else, but I lean toward Husqvarna as well. At one time I looked after equipment for a logging company, the fallers were using Husky 272...
