New Ryobi S430 engine dies on full throttle
Just bought a new Ryobi straight shaft 4 Cycle S430 trimmer last weekend at Home Depot to replace my aging 1079r that did 8-9 years stirling service! It starts OK but the engine dies on the way to full throttle. Gas is brand new and my other power tools (mower, chipper/shredder) are running fine on the same gas. Looks like it will be back to HD next weekend for an exchange/refund but wanted to let everyone else know in case you end up with a out of the box $200 lemon like this one - probably a badly adjusted carb or blocked crankcase vent or similar.
