BR 200

BR 200
A lightweight, professional-caliber backpack blower for use around the home.

Product Description

"This blower is a winner. I purchased it to blow leaves into a pile in areas where my lawn equipment can't go. It did a great job. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is in the market for a new blower. Thanks STIHL for coming out with a backpack blower for us homeowners."
Greensburg, PA
Comfortable. Affordable. And more power to you. The fuel-efficient STIHL BR 200 blower puts the quality of a professional backpack blower in the hands of homeowners everywhere. Its single-handed operation is easy to control, while its lightweight design and anti-vibration technology enhance operator comfort. The 35.5 oz. fuel tank also means fewer refuels compared to handheld blowers; hence, fewer interruptions to the task at hand.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back pack blowers are the way to go! I don't miss my handheld electric blower at all! Stihl makes dependable and easy to use products. The strap padding dulls the engine vibrations and the unit is light weight. Starts on the first pull every time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy Even A Young Boy Can Use It I am a lady who loves yard work! After working in the yard I usually saved the blowing until last. Often times, my big blower was just too heavy for blowing grass clippings. I don't like handheld blowers they seem awkward to me. I found this great little backpack blower at my Ace Hardware Store. It is lightweight, easy to start*, (after the initial start of the season) and it does a great job on light to medium duty chores. I would definitely recommend one of Stihl's bigger blowers for heavier duty jobs, wet leaves, etc.... This blower is so lightweight and easy to start that my seven-year-old grandson can use it! I had purchased him a battery-powered handheld blower but he did not like it. He asked me for mine and of course, I gave it to him (he didn't want a "new" one he wanted his "Lovie's!). So, back to Ace Hardware in Chickamauga, GA. I went to purchase a second Stihl BR 200. Yes, I like it that much.
