    Game changer
    With a very large property populated by innumerable oak trees, for years I struggled in the fall removing leaves. Finally I upgraded to the Stihl 600 BR. The difference was not only great, it was exponential! I was immediately able to move large piles without difficulty (both wet and dry) and get leaves out from previously awkward areas between shrubs and in densely ground-covered areas. Plus, the ergonomics and relative comfort of the machine made this all enjoyable! This is undoubtedly one of ... read more the finest tools I have ever owned and my only regret is not having punched a Stihl years ago!

    A purchase without regret
    I purchased my BR600 Magnum in Oct 2015. We have many oak, hickory, and maple trees. It moves the leaves quickly and efficiently, even when the leaves are wet and heavy. Acorns and hickory nuts are relocated too. A huge upgrade from my "light duty" backpack blower and much more effective than my neighbor's "professional" model 430 backpack blower. I can finish blowing my yard in about 1/2 to 2/3 the time it previously took. It is somewhat effective in moving light snow in southern TN as well! I ... read more only regret not spending the money and purchasing it sooner.

    BR 600 is Awesome
    Even though the price of this blower may initially scare the average consumer away, this is an awesome unit. I've owned this unit now for over a year and when I use it weekly, my neighbors all stand there watching in awe. It simply blows like crazy and makes moving leaves, grass clippings, bark, dirt and debris an easy job in very little time. I've even used it to move light snow in the winter. It simply will remove spots from a leopard! Great unit and I certainly would buy again...

    1 year so far with the 450 C-EF
    My blower starts after 1 or 2 pulls regardless of outdoor temp and I couldn't be more pleased. Seems to be more than enough power to satisfy almost any homeowner. I use it at least once a week. The electric start is a godsend to pick up/move things around, talk to neighbors, kids, etc. I would never have a blower without electric start again. Just FYI, complaints about not being able to start the BR450C-EF with the electronic start are misplaced. You do not start the blower with the button. ... read more You must do the initial start via recoil. Once it's been running and you stop it, you RESTART it with the electronic start. I cannot recommend this blower highly enough as the near perfect compromise for a homeowner.

    Time saver
    This blower has tripled my productivity. After using this blower commercially I am amazed at the amount of time it has saved me. Features I like: Electric start Moveable throttle to your arm length The self contained blower tube is fantastic. Power is very sufficient. Cons: shoulder straps are bad for such a high dollar blower. It seems like they were an after thought. It gets uncomfortable during long periods of usage. The blower is thirsty, has a big tank for fuel but it can go through ... read more it rather quickly.

    To date, their best professional blower
    I own a BR 550, BR 600 Magnum, and now the BR 450 C-EF -- without a doubt this is Stihl's best blower to date (Oct 2015). I think the Stihl engineers have underrated the CFM, as I can attest that it is virtually equal to the 600 Magnum (and possibly greater). Also, the way that the air is delivered is better, it seems to have more "punch" when you throttle up (compared to the 600). Electric start is a fantastic feature, even on cold mornings, it fires right up. Also, the larger fuel tank is a ... read more benefit over previous models..

    Great blower
    I purchased this blower due too my br420c being stolen out of my garage. This is an excellent blower. It is very powerful and moves the grass clippings and leaves in my yard wonderfully. I truly believe Stihl makes the best small yard equipment in the world. Very easy to start. Read the directions and you won't have any trouble. I also have a fc95 edger that is easy to start and cuts through any sidewalk I trim. You can feel the quality built in the product. I am totally satisfied with my ... read more purchase and you will be also.

    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

    powerful is an understatement
    i have owned a stihl br 340 for many years and it has performed flawlessly. i decided to upgrade to the br 700, this thing is a beast. i believe it would blow the vinyl siding off of the house, if you were so inclined to do so. surprisingly quiet for a machine of it's power range.it makes quick work of all the debris associated with having many pine trees on your property, and yes it is powerful enough to blow the gravel out of your driveway, if you are not careful where you point this unit. i ... read more hope to utilize this machine for as many years as i have the previous model.

    Beast Mode!
    My wife convinced me that I needed this "jet pack" today and I'm so happy she did lol! This thing will get it done! I have two 600's and after 10 yrs they're still blowing strong. This is the way to go for commercial work! Thanks Stihl!

    Well worth the extra bucks
    I have the br380 blower now for over 10 years. Nothing wrong with it just wanted to blow wet leaves and it lacked it ! So went into our local still dealer in Loganville and they told me about the br700 I bought it and as soon as I pulled the trigger I about fell over ! The power was in real ! I was afraid to blow the grass cause it might just go with the leaves ! Lol. What power it has. A must to have. Thanks Stihl Great product! Bob

    Just what I needed
    This blower has more air velocity than my retired backpack. I can get into tight spaces where I couldn't with the backpack style blower. One thing that you may want to consider is if your left handed and you have the blower next to you it will suck your shirt/ coat onto the protective grill it has that much power. Great anti vibration handle and it's not heavy for those long working hours.

    Cannot beat a Stihl product
    I purchased the Stihl BG 86 C-E about a month ago. I sure do like it. As with all Stihl products, you take care of them, they last. Between 2 chainsaws, pole saw, brush cutter, you just cannot go wrong with Stihl. My go to chainsaw is a 1994 009L, that still runs like it did new. Proof, that you take care of Stihl products, they last. The anti vibration on this blower is great. Thank you Stihl, for making a quality product, that is made in the USA. Also, having a servicing dealer is a great, ... read more when you need replacement items. Not the big box stores, that have a one size fits all, & nothing fits anything. You get what you pay for.

    excellent power and control of air streams
    I purchased in 2014 a BG 86C-E model handheld blower. Best blower I ever owned. Easy to use, plenty of power and dependable. The three things a homeowner looks for in any type of power tools. . It funnels more air into a smaller size that moves mountain of leaves with ease. You can easily control the edges where the blower air stream is distinct unlike other blowers. Not only is this blower well worth the price but is the most efficient. It is amazing how much work it is capable of doing. Never ... read more own anything but Stihl products.

    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.

    This product blows stronger than any other brand.
    Had a choice between this BR 600 model, or the newer released model. I am totally satisfied with the operation and strength of this BR 600 model, the ease and weight, and the efficiency of air flow. The newer high end blower utilizes the CFMs better, I understand, but can't imagine an improvement over the BR 600!

    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.
