Shindaiwa EB802

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!!!

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
