Why does my leaf blower dies when I give it gas?
If the air filter in your leaf blower is partially plugged, it can cause your engine to run, but die at full throttle. The air filter is designed to prevent debris from entering the engine, and over time this debris can accumulate and lead to a clog. A clogged air filter may cause your blower to idle roughly as well.
