    one of mine redmax 8000 backback blowers is having a power problem. when your running the blower at full throttle it goes from full power, to sputtering,full power, sputtering. the air filter is new and i also checked the filter where the exhaust is.

    I had the same problem today with mine. Where the throtle button is, there is another throtle lever make sure that it's closed all the way. I had the same problem when i pressed the throtle botton all the way it would sputter then go almost full and sputter. I wasn't too pleased because i had a big clean up today but that trick fixed the problem for me. Hope it works for you.
