    Wonder how many of the components are made in China.

    I have no way of knowing, but nothing on it seems cheap like everything else I have ever bought that was made in china. It is my understanding that they are totally Japanese and that the stuff with chinese parts are built in china itself.

    Anyone else having problems with the br800 pinching your forearm skin? Love the blower but since it’s warmed up and the sweaters came off the cable from the pistol grip pinches our forearm skin between the flex tube. Seriously causing bruising on my forearm! My guys as well.

    Rotate that little clip at the rear end of the flex tube so that the cable is down and to the side more.

    I have not had this issue at all and use my BR800 often with short sleeves. Not that it matters, but do you have the X or C model?

    Yea the flex tube, throttle and cable are all adjustable with the br800. I turn the pipe around so the cable is on the outside. No discomfort running that thing all day. The blower has made me much more efficient without taking a toll on my back. I love it!:clapping:
