    Anyone out there know anything about turning a 471KAT into a 472?

    The rep told me that the only difference between the two is the catalyser and that I could simply remove it and have a 472 on my hands?

    I've looked over the spec sheet and can't really see much of a difference between the two models but would love someone's experience on this. 472 has even more power/rpm but seems practically identical?

    I have a , I think its a model 472, starts good but thats about it. Honestly my handheld has about as much power. But for your question, I have'nt a clue on the catalyser.

    Thanks for that. I'll keep looking into it. Probably not the same blower. This 471 is a monster. Kind of like Br600/7001/751 sort of power only quieter and sort of smoother sounding. I really don't need to tweak it, but it's sort of fun to see just how far these things will go. Thanks.
