    I own a Redmax 2600 and it seems to run very lean (probably to pass california laws:dizzy: ) It takes forever to warm up and doesnt seem to be very powerful. Also, I can do almost 10 yards trimming and edging without refueling. Is this unusual to get this good of fuel economy??? It there anything to do to the carb to make it run more rich??? thanks:waving:

    Your measure of 10 yards before refueling doesn't quantify the economy. How much time does it run before refueling?

    I typically get three lawns per tank, sometimes four, and in one case, only two. But, I do know that it will run about 45 minutes on WOT per tank (Stihl FS85).
