Questions & Answers

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?
Asked by: MrC1122
They will tell you to take it to a service center then say you used old fuel (although all your other tools are fine) then try and charge you $150 for new carb and spark plug. i have just had the same issue and its not covered under Ryobi terrible 3 year warranty.

Asked by: Jim
sounds like your "cruise control" switch is holding the throttle trigger on. Make sure your throttle is ALL the way off the cruise control gizmo is not preventing it from returning to zero (idle)

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

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Still goin', but slowing! I saw a couple recent reviews of this blower that indicated the engine was starting to fail after several years of use. I am on my fourth Fall with this blower and have been quite pleased overall. It retains the same power after four years that it had on day one. The reviewers who state that it has problems starting after several years are correct. The solution to this problem for me was cleaning out the gas line and tank. Keeping the tank filled with clean gas/oil mixture afterwards resolves the problem. It does not run well when fuel is running low, but when filled up, it is great. This blower is easy to use as it actually feels light as a backpack, particularly when you hook into the chest straps. It is a massive time saver even on small yards. At some point, I hope that Ryobi develops an electric backpack blower that it quieter and effective as this one. I have the Ryobi electric lawnmower that works like a dream and is hush quiet!
