Hi, my name is ***** ***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible.

If machine is brand new I would return it as its under warranty. you have 30 days with Lowes and 2 years on engine through factory. Leaking from air filter area usually mean machine was tipped with carb side down.
