Full throttle issue

I recently purchased one of these, and my unit will not run at full throttle. When I squeeze the throttle more than half way, it boggs out...why?

185 MPH 510 CFM Gas Backpack Leaf Blower is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 969.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from DON'T BUY THIS LEAF BLOWER. THE HOME DEPOT RETURN POLICY IS JUST 30 DAYS. THE PRODUCT IS GARBAGE!... DON'T BUY THIS LEAF BLOWER. THE HOME DEPOT RETURN POLICY IS JUST 30 DAYS. THE PRODUCT IS GARBAGE!!!!! I had this unit for 4 months and I used it once a week for about 20 minutes to clear leaves from a walkway. The unit stalled 10 minutes into use. The unit restarts but stalls when you press the accelerator trigger. Now unit will only start then idle but once you squeeze the trigger it stalls every time. From my research it may be a carburetor problem that can only be resolved from a Ryobi Authorized dealer. The closest authorized repair center is 73 miles away (almost 150 miles round trip plus tolls). I live in Connecticut and the closest dealer is in Long Island. DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Went through three When we first purchased the original Ryobi backpack blower it worked great for a few months so when it quit working, we trusted that it was a fluke. Them both myself and my parents purchased one and within two months both went out with the same issue. I have talked to Ryobi and they tell me that I have to contact some local company to check on the warranty. I've called and left a voice messages (none of which have received calls back). I will never buy this product again and due to the customer service that Ryobi has not provided, I will not buy anymore of their products.

The product starts easy enough, warms up quickly and works well as a blower. The throttle response is a little slow but not enough to annoy as most of the time you have it on max throttle any way. The flexible part of the nozzle could be longer. If you are a big guy, around that is, it could be troublesome getting the nozzle to go to the left. I like the adjustable handle but again, it isn't made for big people. I am 6'2" with long arms, the throttle grip at its most extended location, is just barely workable for me. I have used it for 2 weeks. This replaced an echo hand held that is 20 years old. I don't know the longevity of the ryobi brand.

This one only lasted 2 days! I am very disappointed, as I am a loyal Ryobi customer (and have been for 10+ years). Engine quit after only an hour or two (as did the first two!). Ryobi customer service was no help (other than "I'm sorry"). Luckily the outstanding crew at the Blairsville Home Depot went out of their way to get me going again! This is really too bad, because when it runs it actually does a great job! Lots of power, not too heavy, easy start etc. But sorry guys, three strikes and you're out!

Bought this leaf blower in July 2016 and by October 2016 after a dozen uses it stopped running. Contacted Ryobi and they directed me to an authorized service provider. At this point I already knew what was coming...authorized service provider would simply look at the leaf blower and "find" something wrong with it that isn't covered under warranty. This was exactly the case! There are many four letters words to describe this experience with Ryobi and their service providers. Long story short...better off eliminating the head aches and getting a quality machine! Not this $200 piece of junk! Husqvarna or commercial blowers all the way!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've lived on this place since 1958 and have had about everything you can imagine to blow up leaves, but all have a power cord to pull with you. I have a sycamore tree alone with the neighbors sycamore and maple tree and mine. So I have a lot of leaves to contend with. I have a kidney shaped flower garden and that use to be so hard to get the leaves out of, now about 30 sec. with one sweep on the RYOBI backpack blower it is clean. My son has one, and he bought me one for my birthday,(great son) and I just love it. My job is so much easy. I am 84 years young. I have some problem with harness is all.

Thanks to the answer from DavidInEastTexas to the "stopping and not starting" question, I bought a set of tuning tools from Amazon, and now my blower runs like a champ! It was a good blower before the tune, and now it's a great one. I've run almost a gallon of gas through it since the adjustment and it has been completely problem free and stays at a comfortable temperature too. His comment about gas cooling down the engine is correct. A couple of minor details to add to David's answer. 1) My carb actually needed the D shaped tool vs. the Pacman. I bought my blower recently, so they may have switched carbs or made a slight change. To be safe, make sure the tool set you get has both shapes. 2) To access the tuning screw you will have to push the gas tank forward enough to gain access. The engine is spring mounted, so this is not a big deal.

After three seasons and two repairs, I finally put this Ryobi on the shelf and spent the money on a proper backback blower from a company that makes professional products. Despite having similar stats, the new blower moves more leaves and is considerably quieter. If this is your price range, I recommend a handheld blower. Ryobi, BTW, was unresponsive to my complaints.
