Hey Ridin' Green...can you elaborate on how you got the straps to work on your 8010? Mine was one that was recalled for the straps, not sure how the steel straps can attach to the existing?The Stihl chest strap will fit any BP other than the Maruyama 9000 and even that can work with a little sewing. the strap fits std 1" straps but the 9000 has wider straps. I had my wife sew some std 1" strapping onto the oem straps and then I installed the chest strap on it as well. First pic is my 802, then the 9000, then the 8010, and last the 800

It also makes everyday lawn maintenance ten times easier. This is so much better than trying to clean off driveways, walkways, patios etc with the discharge of the mower or a handheld blower.
I wish I would have bought a back pack blower ages ago. I am more productive with one.
Other than I spend more on gas / two stroke oil than I did due to the poor gas mileage. But so worth it.
Enjoy it as much as I do!
