    I purchased a Shindaiwa EB630 blower and a Shindaiwa T260 trimmer from "Smoker" here on Lawnsite. I use the blower today for the first time and I must admit, it much more powerful than my Sthil BR400! I am very impressed and must say it is now my favorite!

    One question, it has a metal wire on the right side that is pulled out from somewhere, anyone tell me where this connects?

    There wire I think you are talking about really doesn't connect anywhere..its called a Lead Wire. Its needs to be placed under the Volute Case and the side of the Bend Pipe and then through the inside of the Flexible Pipe. In other words in is placed through the connection of the first pipe (through the clamp) and remains inside the pipes...

    Ray, You won't be dissapointed with your eb630. I have 2 of them and a Redmax eb6200. I like using the eb630 with only 2 tubes ,instead of 3. I'm not real tall. I'd send you a self picture but I'm afraid Stone would paste it every where! What do you think of the t-260?

    Bob, I like the T260 and the way it handles. I do not like the spool it came with, I had to refill it after 2 short days. I keep 5 full spools for my Sthil and will look at my options before I buy spools for the T260.

    I have not moved my BR400 since I got the EB630, boy it moves the leaves.

    Thanks Lonestar, did just as you said, no problems.

    Glad to hear you like your new your new EB630 blower. I bought one about a week ago but have not picked it up from the dealer yet. When I bought it the wire you are talking about was missing and I waiting for it to come in. The wire is some type of static discharge. I demoed it without the wire and whenever you would get into some dust it would start shocking you.

    If I wear cotton gloves while operating my eb630 or eb6200 , I get a small shock at the throttle!

    I fully agree with you on the power of the shindig, man I was impressed. I don't think there is a stronger one on the market. I am going to make that my next blower, I've only demo'd one for a couple days. My dealer wanted $460.00, what did you get it for?


    P.S. The BR400 felt like a punk after using the Shindig!
