    It is starving for gas, the carburetor is partially plugged with varnish from old gas or contaminated by bad fuel. Try putting Seafoam in the tank, if that doesn't help it's tear down time. Once you get it back in shape add a quality fuel stabilizer to avoid the same problem when you fire it up next winter.
