    have 2 Redmax 8000 Blowers that have been doing the same thing. We use them first couple houses they are fine then about 4 houses in it takes about 10 pulls to start and sometimes we cant get any power out of them. we have to play with the throttle and cold start. replaced sparkplug, airfilter and fuel filter. any suggestions?

    Yes that is the same thing we have to do. it is getting very frustrating. But i know it gonna to be a easy $90 each if i take it to dealer. Do you know why urs does it.

    no, i picked up 4 7150s this year so its sittin right now

    prefer the weight to power ratio of 7150

    i imagine it has something to do with the carb, have you blown it out?

    im gonna try that one of these days
