If I thought I could ship it easily, I'd sell you mine. It's already "broke in" even. If you have the magic touch to make them run then you are better than me!

Some said it needs a carb adjustment, but there's no adjustment screws. I've seen others post pics of these little covers that have to be drilled out to access the screws but on mine the only one of those I can even see dosn't appear to be inline with anything that could be remotely in the carburator. I'm not going to willy-nilly drill holes in the thing either.
this one dealer told me that since they went strato charged that they changed the carbs in order to make the emmissions work . and that carb change over can be a ***** . he said the carbs are so tricky they stopped rebuilding them and just put in new carbs because half the time they rebuild them the carbs still toast

I Just have a good redmax dealer down the road !!. Every thing I buy now will be red max !!!! So it all boils down to the dealer !!
I have run Redmax for 2 years now and no problems but not having every thing red max. The guys complain when they have to use the others.
ps SORRY to hurt all the Echo guys but that stuff sucks.

ive never ran stihl besides my awesome stihl chain saws

but ive read alot here and ide bet alot of money the fs90 and br600
are both first or second favorites in their categories

and i really like how the fs90 is built , solid and light with decent cc's .
but i dont like the fit and construction of the stihl back packs , i'll
take my redmax 7001 backies any day because they run great / powerful / rock solid construction / fit my back perfect so i can hustle . so ide just say try the different back packs you like on and walk outside and jump up and down a little bit and check the fit out on them . and i dont like the throttles on tube , i prefer throttles on the fold down handles . so thats another factor to check
