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.

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.
