    I bought a Redmax EB4401 this spring and at the end of september its started to lose power. I ran some Seafoam 2 cycle stuff and sprayed a little carb cleaner through it, but still seems to lose power. If anybody has had problems that sound like mine with any Redmax blowers your insight would be appreciated.

    Does it have a spark arrestor? If so take it out...some new units don't have them anymore.

    Get rid of the spark arrestor before doing anything else to it. If that does not help, take it back to the dealer, it is under warranty.

    What they said. Lose that spark arrestor.

    Then if that didn't help, check your fuel line very closely to make sure there are no cracks.:)
