    Got to run a Shindy blower today the 802. The Echo 770 had to go back in the shop. Any questions?

    The EB802 will never go in the shop! I was working with 2 guys today on a job using my 802 and one of them said "man I like that blower, it has a lot of wind!" Meanwhile a guy on a BR600 Mag is blowing at the house next to ours.

    I'm just sitting here saying to myself, you don't want any of the SHINDY!!! :weightlifter:

    Seemed to run threw more gas than the 770. Sounded like a turbine engine also.

    I second this, it is a gas hog. Buttt, it throws out some power, especially with the couple mods you can do to it.

    I purchased one this year. It is very powerful, but I have had to put two carbs on it since June and it runs like garbage now. I will stay with Stihl.

    I've had an 802RT for almost 3 years and all I've done to it is replace 1 shoulder strap. Best blower I've ever owned. It replaced a BR600 that had a bent valve. Best move I ever made.

    I love mine, little less power than the RedMax 7500 I also have but it does more than I ask it to, and it is a heck of a lot lighter
