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?

Does the Ryobi model 08420A require a gas mixture?

Asked by: jojo
Thank you for asking, Jojo. This product is powered by a 2-cycle engine and requires pre-mixing gasoline and 2-cycle lubricant. Pre-mix unleaded gasoline and 2-cycle engine lubricant in a clean container approved for gasoline. DO NOT mix quantities larger than usable in a 30-day period. Recommended fuel: This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline intended for automotive use. NOTE: We recommend you use Ethanol Shield 2-cycle lubricant, PowerCare 2-cycle lubricant (6.4 oz. or 16 oz.), or an equivalent high-quality synthetic 2-cycle lubricant in this product. Mix at 2.6 oz. per gallon (US). Do not use automotive lubricant or 2-cycle outboard lubricant. I hope this helps and we appreciate your interest in Ryobi! -Keri

iS THIS STRICKLY A BLOWER AND NOT ALSO A VACUUM.

Asked by: JOLLY
Thank you for asking, JOLLY. This is a leaf blower and does not have the vacuum capability. Please check with Home Depot for alternative Ryobi blowers that do offer this function. I hope this helps and we appreciate your interest in Ryobi! -Keri

185 MPH 510 CFM Gas Backpack Leaf Blower is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 1125.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware We've had this for about 2 years and at the start of the third year it bogs down after starting. New fuel and air filter, spark plug, carburetor clean, fresh gas and it seems useless. I've now read comments from others and many people have experienced the same issue once the engine 'ages'. I've had other small engine tools that have never had these issues, even with old gas. Read what many others are saying, look on youtube and you will see that a lot of people are complaining that this is a cheap product that is only good for 2-3 years at best before it requires one or many trips to the shop to get working again.

I bought this blower a lil over a year ago and I have had nothing but problems with it. "If" it does start once it runs a while then cuts off, good luck starting it back up. I also noticed when it would run, it dumped all the heat on me from the exhaust, that is not very comfortable when it is already 95 degrees outside. I would pass this one by if you are in the market for a blower. This one gives a fine example of "you get what you pay for".

The sideways mounted engine results in a direct exhaust dump onto the back of the operator. If you use this product for more than a few minutes it is extremely uncomfortable. Also has issues with starting. The primer bulb does not pull enough fuel to make cold starts easier and often after running for several minutes and then turning off the unit, it is difficult to restart if it will restart. I have many Ryobi products and generaly recommend them, but this one needs to be sent back to the designers and remodeled.

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!

I've only owned gas powered handheld, so comparing it to other backpacks I'm null and void. BUT... I put it through one heck of a stress test. 6 hours nonstop on Saturday. Sun up to sundown on Sunday. (Or 2 1/2 gallons of gas) A little temperamental getting started the first time, doesn't like being run completely out of gas, refilled and restarted, so don't be me. When you hear it struggling for fuel fill it up. It's light, it's powerful. If I had one complaint it's only for the right hand. (I'm left handed)

The leaf blower however, is not well made. When it was running, the engine would bog down often. Now it doesn't run at all. It's not running because it can't take the heat generated when it's running on wide open. Mine has a whopping compression of 60 psi (should be 120 - 130), which indicates the rings are stuck, and the piston is probably scored. If you already have bought it, save the receipt cause the warranty is for 3 years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from POWERFUL....for a minute I bought this today, and just like many of the bad reviews, it will only run at high idle for about a minute. Then it bogs down and dies. It will restart and idle just fine. Looks like the carb will need adjustment, and if that doesn't fix it, I'm taking it back and exchanging it for a better product. Ryobi claims the carb is pre-set for operation below 2000ft, and I live at 980ft. Also, the heat from the exhaust is going to be a huge issue on warm days.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk Works great for several months then issues come. I love my power tools and take care of all of them. I even replace spark plug air filter and sometimes the carb and it helps for a few uses then it's time to be replaced again. I recommend spending a few extra dollars and buy a husqavarna that will last a lifetime I taken care of. I was an idiot for not reading the reviews first, I usually love ryobi tools but not this one. It usually starts great and after a few minutes of run time it starts to bog down and loose power. Seriously ryobi, my 2 cycle bicycle engine runs better than this. I've spent way to much time on this and if I weren't for there good battery tools I'd be done with ryobi but honestly spend a little more on a better product. Even adding fuel additives does nothing.
