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 919.
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 5 out of 5 by from Worth it for me. At my job I use a $600. Stihl that I call the hurricane. Nothing compares to that, but this Ryobi is no wimpy runner up and for $179. It's a steal. It moves leafs, debris, grass clippings, and small rocks very well. It's very loud and ear protection is a must. I use power equipment professionally and know all the tricks to keep them performing at top notch. I use non RFG high octane fuel and keep the spark arresting screen clean. Maximum performance and maximum duty is what I expect and this Ryobi is capable of delivering just that. I am very happy with its light weight, east of operation and features.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WASTED OF MONEY Brought a small Ryobi 4 cycle hand blower and within the first year never worked again because a piston problem. Soon, I do an upgrade for this backpack model... a year later, unit start but not accelerate completly. Service told me about a camburator problem that does not covered by warranty. I replaced the carburetor, for a 6 months operation now, unit wont start again. I put a new carb again, new air filter, new spark plug and new gas mix...Only do idle. Blower is used residential only, once every 3 or 4 weeks, with the correct gas and oil mix. Do go cheap, spend a few more fore a hassle free equipment!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very strong, starts consistantly Alot of wind power for getting the job done. Continues to start. Many lesser blowers have starting issues after a while. This one keeps on working.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disposable blower This works great, until it doesn't. Don't let the 2 year warranty fool you, about 90% of the potential ways that this can fail are going to be categorized as "fuel issues" and your warranty claim is going to get denied. Even if you've been very careful to always use fresh 89 octane gas, good premix, and fuel stabilizer, the carburetor is likely to fail and it'll need repairs that will cost at least half the purchase price. So if you're ok with buying a disposable leaf blower every couple of years, this one will do. But if you are buying it expecting it to last more than a couple of seasons of typical use, spend a bit more and go with a brand known for reliable small engine products and standing behind its products when they fail.

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!
