Got to run a Shindy blower today the 802. The Echo 770 had to go back in the shop. Any questions?

The EB802 will never go in the shop! I was working with 2 guys today on a job using my 802 and one of them said "man I like that blower, it has a lot of wind!" Meanwhile a guy on a BR600 Mag is blowing at the house next to ours.

I'm just sitting here saying to myself, you don't want any of the SHINDY!!! :weightlifter:

Seemed to run threw more gas than the 770. Sounded like a turbine engine also.

I second this, it is a gas hog. Buttt, it throws out some power, especially with the couple mods you can do to it.

I purchased one this year. It is very powerful, but I have had to put two carbs on it since June and it runs like garbage now. I will stay with Stihl.

I've had an 802RT for almost 3 years and all I've done to it is replace 1 shoulder strap. Best blower I've ever owned. It replaced a BR600 that had a bent valve. Best move I ever made.

I love mine, little less power than the RedMax 7500 I also have but it does more than I ask it to, and it is a heck of a lot lighter

Got to run the blower again today, was able to save a little on fuel due to the fact of figuring out how it works. Does not have the width power the 770 had but it has more length power.

Just my two cents,

There are two different tube nozzles that you can get/have with the 802. One cuts CFM and boosts MPH, the other boosts CFM and cuts MPH.

Took the bottom tube off today an like it better. Wider air volume an shorter tube.

Purchased an shindaiwa EB802RT and love it. Light,powerful and releiable . It was that or a RedMax both are excellent blowers redmax seemed very bulky. Always ran shindaiwa equipment and very hard to let go the ledgend

I owned a 630 for about 5 years and only put in air and fuel filters so far.

I bought a 802 maybe 18 months back and really like it a lot. The only problem is someone left it behind my truck and I ran over the end tube. Anyone know where to get a end tube for it? It seems like parts are a bit harder to find.

I also run a rm 7150 no problems, rm 8000 scored cylinder and piston, and a br420 (floods, muffler needs cleaning seasonally). I got to say the shindys are my favorite because of reliability.

I have one of the 2 detachable pieces below the throttle in my shop for the EB802 that hasn't been used. If you want it PM me and we can work something out.
