    Solid performer
    I like the idea that you sell through small business owners who provide great service and provide support at purchase as wellas after the sale. Quality, performance are a key factor to my purchase ex performance beside being made in USA.

    I love this STIHL Blower!
    This is the best leaf blower I have ever owned! It is so light and easy to use and very quiet compared to most blowers.

    EXCELLENT
    I had a craftsman leaf blower.. just threw it in the trash... was goin to take it to my cabin, but after using the stihl 61, I'm just going to go buy another one for up north. Well worth the money!

    This blow/vac is worth every penny!!!
    I've owned this product for about six weeks and have used it every weekend. I've used the shredder system twice. The easy to start system STIHL has is second to none. I've tried several other brands, and finally decided to spend the extra money and get a well known and reliable blow/vac. I wish I would have bought this a long time ago. The ease of use is superb. Switching over from blower to shredder is very easy; Especially after you do it the first time. Don't waste your money on other ... read more brands. Bite the bullet and get a STIHL.

    Great vacuum for those tight places in your yard
    This thing does what it is designed to do. Great for vacuuming up leaves all over the yard. Instead of making a mess trying to blow leaves out of tight areas you can vacuum and be done. I only use the vac on dryer leaves so I haven't had any clogging problems. Great also for clean up after edging, mowing etc. Bag can get heavy as it fills but that just tells you its time to dump. Runs like a champ. So easy to start. Very happy with my purchase as I am with my Stihl chain saw.

    Light and easy to start and control!
    I have had "economy" equipment in the past. My dad was always a Stihl man so when we saw the line of Stihl power equipment and after struggling with one of the "economy" brands we bought the Stihl. We absolutely love it! It is light enough and easy enough to use that both of us love to use it. We purchased the gutter attachment and now no more climbing ladders to clean the gutters. What a versatile machine. It is easy to start and the trigger throttle control allows me to control the power and not make a mess.

    Awesome power for handheld blower
    200% better than the Craftsman blower I've been using for 15 years

    Good, but a few issues early on.
    I have only had this machine about 4 - 6 weeks and have given it only light use so far. But it has been easy to start and operate. Air flow and velocity seem good and it really has not been as noisy as the electric blower I had before. I really like not having a cord to get out, drag around, and put up. I did have a problem while on my 3rd tank of fuel and took it for service. They replaced the carburetor within 2 days and it now seems OK.

    This products has useful features.
    Due to the season, I have not used the unit extensively, but the unit has performed well to this point. My initial use felt as though the unit was under powerd; however, after I purchased the flat nose tube, it seems to blow with more force. After the unit is converted to the vacuum, it suctions so well that the fairly small bag that cathes yard debris fills rather quickly. Aside from the above, this is a good product.

    Excellent tool!
    This vacuum is an awesome tool. We use it a lot to clean up plant trimming, weeds, leaves, etc. in our greenhouses. It puts almost anything it can pick up right through. Highly recommended!

    Met all expectations
    The vacuum kit for my BG 56 C-E worked exactly as advertised. It was easy to understand, assembly, and use. I got initial help from the dealer to ensure that I knew how to attach and remove the vacuum kit on the blow power head. It was easy to develop a technique for vacuuming the leaves and pine needles but leave behind the mulch. This is a great tool to finish of the Fall leave collection business.

    Great design for the urban leaf blower.
    Excactly what was needed in a noise conscience environment. Stihl enough power to lift wet leaves of the sidewalks. If I was to use it everyday I would probably go for the BR600 but since it is only used sparingly this does the job I bought it for.

    Why Did I Wait So Long To Buy It?
    First of, the dealer who I purchased it from, Freeman Creek Equipment was excellent. Friendly, knowledgeable, and gave me a demonstration of its features. The blower itself surpassed my expectations. I have a 1 acre property with mature oaks and maples. Needless to say, in the fall there are plenty of leaves. So much so that I am blowing them for several weeks. This blower has significantly cut down the time to do it. I like the ability to lock in various speeds.

    Very Quite and Does the Job
    I Maintain Grounds equipment on a university campus and we recently purchased three BR 500 Blowers for our department. All three are working great and it is much nicer around campus with the reduced noise levels from these blowers. We have many trees and at any one time are running 7 to 8 leaf blowers during the Fall to keep up. The BR 500 Blowers move less air than other blowers that are available but they provide enough air to do the job and as stated above produce noticeably less noise.

    Leaf Blower on Steroids
    The leaf blower makes cleanup of leaves so much easier than with a typical blower. The air velocity and power allow it to move more leaves faster than any normal blower I've used. The backpack padding helps keep the vibration to a minimum and the fatigue on your arms is minimal since you're only holding up a tube. It starts usually on the first or second pull and is the only blower I use anymore. I wasn't willing to put down the extra cash for a backpack blower for the last 10 years and now ... read more think how much time and effort I've wasted not having one. These are the only way to go.

    Another great stihl product
    Purchased a br430 from Bairs in North Canton Ohio was unsure of what unit to buy and was upgrading from a old 55 hand blower the salesman who seemed to also be a stihl maintenance tech was super helpful and knowledgeable. I have had the chance to use the blower about 12 times and it works awesome has great power and really lifts everything up and off your lawn or concrete! Hope it last as long as my stihl saws, weed eater and my old blower.... Thanks Doug A

    More than I expected
    Rated it highest, but I've owned it for only about a month. I've used it several times with no problems. The power is is more than I expected. I though 25 pds, with fuel, on my back would be heavy, but it's not. Very comfortable harness and throttle handle. I'm daring the leafs to fall in my yard this year. Great product
