Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to get you the answer you need to your question.
Although your tiller is almost new, it is still likely that your carburetor is at fault. You probably have a partially clogged jet or fuel passage inside your carburetor, causing a restriction in your fuel flow.
I do believe, that if you clean your carburetor, this will resolve our problem.
