    My little bad nachine
    I’m a 61 yr old woman. I’ve owned the BR600 for almost 2 yrs. One of the best investments ever. It has blown up about 25 yrs of cut up pine straw and has left me with a beautiful lawn. I’ll soon build a cart to carry it, but I’ll never give up this little bad machine. Just perfect for my 2.5 acreas. Easiest machine to maintain and crank. I’m absolutely in love with it.

    Grounds keeper review: read this buy this
    I use a blower daily at work in a university setting. We use Echo 755's mainly (both top echo models) a good machine no doubt. I use my Br600 at home and side jobs. I wish I could use it at work!! It is lighter, quieter, more fuel efficient, not smokey, waaay more torque/power/pricise throttle response....any ONE of these reasons would be enough to change blowers! This is simply a fantastic machine. I put a hour meter on it to see how long it lasts. No ethanol fuel!

    Does a great job
    I upgraded to a BR 600 after using (still using) a BR 400 for 20 years. I had contemplated looking at a Husqvarna 750 and it felt like I had a Volkswagen on my back and sounded like it had no muffler. Don't be afraid of the 4 mix. Is quiet and lots of power on wet or dry leaves. All my power tools are Stihl and it's nice to go back to the dealer you purchased it from instead of a major box store or online purchase. Starts with one pull and is quieter than most other back pack blowers.

    Will this work for br700?
    700 is a little heavier. Need to relieve pressure on shoulders for lengthy jobs.

    Hip belt for backpack blower
    I love the feeling of having the hip belt fastened on to my BR 600 backpack blower! Now i can work in the yard for hours with the support needed to have my back hurting when I'm finished.

    Takes weight off your back
    The hip belt is great in reducing the amount of weight you're supporting with your back and shoulders. It moves some of it to your hips, making it more comfortable and easier to use for long periods.

    plenty of power
    I purchased this blower for home use. We have many trees on our property. The blower starts easily, runs relatively quietly (although ear plugs helpful) and has plenty of power to move leaves anywhere. Anti-vibration design is also a plus. I received an extended 4 year warranty by purchasing the Stihl 2 cycle oil. The unit appears well built to give many years of use. The only cons I have are that the instructions are weak with regard to blower tube assembly and the shoulder straps tend to slip ... read more off at times as there is no chest strap.

    Great Product!!
    The BR 430 is an amazing piece of equipment!! I have a 2 acre lot and this blower has plenty of power to move all of the unwanted leaves and debris. It is easy to start, usually takes 3 or so pulls from a cold start, and one pull if it is warmed up. I have noticed that the I "blow" through the gas pretty quick, but it is not really a flaw to me. Overall I am really happy that I bought this product and will continue to purchase STIHL products.

    Superb power
    I bought this blower to pick up where my Poulan left off. It has done quite an amazing job as well. It has proven that even three trees full of 12in wide maple leaves is no match even on the rainiest of days. One warning, do not use over soft soil it will blow a hole right in the Earth. I stand by Stihl for all my yard products, weed trimmers, blowers, chainsaws, you name it

    Very Satisfied with Product
    Blower is light weight, easy to handle and quiet. Blowing force is good for my heavily treed property and clears it quickly. One negative issue; the blower's electric cord 2 prong connection will not plug into my common 3 prong extension cords. An adapter or lighter gauge wire cord must be used.

    Powerful and Light.
    I bought this for my mother who wanted something to blow out her garden. I bought this model solely because of its weight. I was surprised at how powerful it was for such a small/light machine. She couldn't be happier.

    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.

    Reliable, runs well with hign CFM to blow a pile of leaves or clean the driveway. My biggest concern is the length of time out of the two batteries.
    My experience using two batteries, the AK20 and AK30, is that the run time is less than the 20 or 30 minutes as specified the Stihl specifications. The performance and handling are great to move heavy leaves or clean the drive. Thus, I give the BGA 56 a 4 star rating. Have owned the product 4 months but use the blower weekly.

    Excellent product
    I'm sold on Stihl products. I already owned a gas-powered Stihl blower. I loved it, but it was fairly noisy for an urban neighborhood. It was a no-brainer for me to replace it with a Stihl battery-powered blower. The new blower has plenty of power and long battery life. I also like that its battery is compatible with other Stihl products.

    BGA 56 exceeded expectaions
    The BGA56 was purchased in January 2019 to blow light snow off church walks with the expectation to blow grass and leave other times of the year. The BGA 56 made the job of cleaning long walks so easy in light fluffy snows of up to 2 to 3 inches. It reduced time an labor in temperatures at or below zero. After the first 2 battery charges the battery lasted long enough to complete the job. Light weight and ease of operation makes it easy for anyone to use it. Totally satisfied. Money well spent.

    Real powerhouse
    Has the volume of two handhelds-cut my time considerably rounding up leaves and easy to start-only complaint would be the weight but if made lighter it would not be as well made

    What a beast!!!
    My boys and I mow 8 acres every week on our property in Central Iowa, I have been hem hawing about what to do for a blower, on the farm in the past we have used the hand held style and that gets tiring. This is outstanding, it moves everything in its way, wet or dry. If you need a way to move, leaves, grass, corn husks, shelled corn, soybean stalks/dust, soybeans, sand, snow and clean equipment. You want this blower!!! The movement in the blower arm vs the 700 is noticeable and the ½ lb. is ... read more worth it there alone. I cannot say enough good things and as with all things Stihl you get power, reliability and ease of use!!!

    I should have bought this years ago!
    I have struggled with fall leaves in my yard for years. I picked up this blower last fall and wow! It makes short work of what used to be a long and tedious chore. This blower moves a wall of leaves effortlessly.
