I just had to share this with you people. I had purchased a Red Max back pack blower probably about 7 years ago. I believe it is an EB431? Well I have not run it since December of last year. I went to start it up today so I can use it tomorow on a shrub pruning job, started on the 2nd pull. On a side note, I also have a walk behind with a 7 year old kawasaki engine on it, and that starts on the first pull. I just wanted to share my good experiences with the crowd.
