BR 200 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 144.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Professional review So, I've been a maintenance Gardener now for 5yrs full time and being the cheapskate I am have owned a bottom of the line BG56 for that entire time.. Until now, my elbows are giving out due to overuse and that blower is a main culprit so time to go backpack.I went instore to try the BR450 and 200. The 450 was appealing, but trying it on was just too heavy and bulky. Twice the physical size of the 200! And weight just a bit much so I decided to buy the 200. Ease of use, size, portability won out and I've just done our home driveway which is very large and bluestone gravel (approximately 200metres long) it did just as well as the handheld blower but was easier to use and less painful on the arms and back. The handheld would be fine for most, but my home is about 30x a normal yard and I look after around 30 unit blocks by myself as well so there's only so much the body will actually handle before it self destructs. Literally. I want to be able to continue working so this was a necessity if anything. I found that making the output tip a little smaller diameter gave a little extra power, just used a tip off my old gutter extension attachment for the BG56 which also made the tip 100mm longer, a little closer to the ground which I prefer. You'll notice that the blower tune on the 200 is just straight, whereas the 450 is slightly curved which is easier to use. The 450 also has telescopic handle and zoom which would be nice. I really do feel this blower is a bit overpriced, BG56 one price and backpack 200 version 2-3x as much, only real difference is the backpack and longer outlet so do feel it's a bit of a rip, though is good to have and there's no other option really so had to pay it. I do love it

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ehh Your paying a lot for a blower with not much power, I’d recommend paying the little extra money and getting the next size up. Also the tube falls off constantly while using. Starts and runs great though, very light

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Top Quality device. First impression is that this is an excellent value. It has good blowing power but less than expected compared to the electric unit I replaced,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great economy blower ! For your home and outdoor use, this is an incredibly powerful little blower !! I am on a bit over an acre & this baby does all I want and more !! Light weight compared to the others of commercial quality, but packs a punch far beyond any of the handheld blowers on the market !!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great so far Great product! Start fast and run smooth. Only issue is the blowing power is a bit weak, but it does the job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from As far as dependability of blower, it is as good as any other Sthil product. Disappointed in power of blower. Good for light duty needs. Would have been better off spending extra dollars for commercial blower.
