    I just got a Shindaiwa 802RT. My eb630 seems to have higher engine rev's, and also seems to have a higher air speed that the 802. The engine just doesn't sound like its running at full potential. It looks like the throttle is open all the way. Any ideas?

    Do you have it in turbo mode or quiet mode? Did did you check and make sure the throttle cable opens the throttle on the carb all the way? Do you let it warm up or just run it for a minute or so? If that does not work then take it back to the dealer.
    My eb802 needs about 30 seconds before the engine warms up fully and the rpm kick up to full throttle. It also is a lot quieter then my old echo 755 but it blows way better.
