I got one that will not run at wide open throttle as well. Mine will run 3/4 just fine. At wot the fuel supply line starts getting air bubbles and it starts bogging.

I fixed both of my Redmax's that were bogging today because of the link posted above. Just bent the main jet retainer like it shows and my stuff is running hard. Can't believe it. I went to both of the Redmax dealers around here and did several carb kits trying to fix them. Both the dealers have since quit selling redmax over carb problems. I posted on this forum and red dozens of threads last year trying to figure this out. Tried everything I could.

Took me three tries on the first piece of equipment. Got it first try on the second. Running really nice. Happy Holidays

Oh don't thank me I originally got that link from Bigfish. Both of our donkey carts were pulled to the side of a hill in the countryside where we had chamomile tea and feta for lunch where we traded industry secrets.
It is very important for you to post your results once the problem is solved so that people will be able to reference a solution to their problem down the road. YEARS may go by and someone has the same problem PLEASE POST YOUR "IT WAS FIXED WITH x SOLUTION.

Have tried adjusting carb & still have same problem. Fuel spraying out the intake of the carb & no power. Carb is brand new & works great on other blowers when swapped out. New short block, good compression. New fuel filter, lines etc. Can't figure it out & have 2 blowers w/ exact same issue

The muffler has a cat. honeycomb in it, if it gets clogged it will act that way. Also, IIRC the metal ins. gasket and/or the insulator itself can be bolted on upside down.
There aint a whole lot more can cause that.
