    i had a question on redmax's blowers. does right hand throttle mean that the throttle will be on the blower tube on the handle? or does it just mean that the usual hip throttle will be moved from the left side to the right side?

    thanks,

    brian

    LH throttle is on the left side (left hip) - RH throttle is on the tube. :usflag:

    I just bought the 8001 and the woman who worked at the shop told me that because gas today is so crappy, I would have to empty the tank every month or at least use it for a little while each month. I plan on using it in the winter to blow light snow, but is it ok to let it sit for 2 months or do I have to drain the tank? Thanks in advance
