    I have about 5 hours into this blower and it periodically seems to cut out for a split second. Only happens under full power. It's like tapping the kill switch.

    I'll take it back to the dealer at the end of the week, but I am just wondering if anyone else has a problem?

    I run mid grade gas. I'm thinking it's more of an electrical problem.

    Guys 87 is what should be run through small engine because the machine already runs way hot and runnin 97 through it could melt the piston. Just a little advise i got from my dealer. :)

    Stop talking. That blower will blow your stihl off the trailer.

    I just got a Redmax EB4800 and I am having similar problems. Another thing that is weird I was using it and I got a little shock from the trigger. I looked though it for open wires or something but I have no idea.

    Let us know what happens with yours
