    I bought the br600 a few weeks ago and its definitely strong, however and I'm not sure how to describe this but it seems like it should scream more. Is this just me or does anyone else think the same. My old echos are screamers and this thing just sounds like its puttin along. Doing the job though thats for sure, but it seems like it could do more.

    I was thinking the same thing. My BR550 was very powerful but it sounds like it runs half porwer. I think, because of the 4-mix engin. It was not suppose to be very loud.

    Yep, sounds like its only at half power is a good way to explain it.

    Did you guys ask your dealer about this? if so, what did they say? I ask because I was thinking about buying one.

    I'm not a professionan mechanic or anything but my guess would be that the engine has more potential than the factory has given it by way of carburation /air flow etc. My understanding is that noise and fuel emission reduction designs tend to bogg engines down. Correct me if i'm wrong, I love to learn.

    That's the magic of 4 mix It is queiter than standard 2 stroke. I own a fs 100 rx wich is more powerfull than my fs80 but has half the volume. Enjoy.
