blower I have ever used
Excellent power, shoulder straps lacking
I have several other Stihl power products but when my old backpack blower recently broke I replaced it with the BR600. The BR600 has excellent power, easy to start, and has cut my leaf blowing time considerably. My only complaint is the shoulder strap setup is very uncomfortable compared to my old blower.

Best blower ever. period.

Huge piles of leaves just blown into the woods, then I blow the forest floor clean just for fun and because I can! Big wet Aspen leaves to pine needles this blows 'em up and rolls the pile away with ease.
