    I have always ran redmax and I could pull the screen out of the muffler to help it run better, but I can't figure out where the screen on the Shin. is

    Shin' prolly has a catalytic converter...don't know if they use a screen or not....also don't know how it would run if you put a regular old muffler on in it's place?!??

    What is it?
    My blower wasn't that hard. You need some needle nose pilers to pull it out from the inside. Hope that helps can't explain it very well.

    take the muffler screws out and you will find a spring these units do not run like old shin.

    Take all of the plastic off that you need to get to the muffler, If you have a trimmer, there should be a screw at the end of the muffler if you unscrew that take some needle nose and pull out the screen, its almost like a tube. On my blower it was just a little round screen. Good Luck

    wht take it out now? just leave it in there until it gets clogged, then take it out. if your going to take it off anyway, here's how you do it. take the plastic cover off the trimmer, take the muffler off, take outer casin of the muffler off, and it's in there. it should be a rectangular mesh. a description should be in the owners manual.
