Keep in mind that the engine may be a little tight at first, so throttle response may not be great and it won't have it's full power until you run 5 or more tanks of fuel through it. And don't run it full throttle for any extended periods at first either.

Please post back here after you've gotten a chance to use it a bit.
Why not run it at full throttle? Both Stihl and Husky say that any blower is safe to do that with since they are considered under load at all times when running. Mine didn't have any throttle lag at first. None. It did take more than 5 tanks full though to really start to breeak in good. More like closer to 10 IIRC.
