Fuel problems. if it was sitting that long, then the carb is gummed up and the jets are really small. Get yourself a carb overhaul kit, and an air gun and get to work on the carb. New fuel filter as well. You will find it probably runs for a while and then dies again as the jets will cycle the dirt bits around. Start there. Replace the plugs. Give her an oil change and lube the chains and all grease points for the bearings (inside the tub and outside the tub). That's pretty much it.
