    power rush
    I work a large acreage that is a dedicated wildlife refuge with the only passage thru it being my 2 mile driveway in an wild understory and large oak trees. On my weekly treks to jobs as an Architect I have to use that driveway and it's prone to be covered + clogged with limbs, leaves, acorns, on and on. Well this hoss of a machine can make it look like a suburban private drive in short order! Man what a rush to see all those leaves, acorns, old vines , branches....EVERYTHING just literally ... read more fly off the asphalt ! No more tractor pushing it........... Spend the bucks and save your time and equipment. And as an added bonus, it's SO easy to start and use.

    No need to look for another leaf blower!
    No need to look any further! This backpack blower has all you need. I am super impressed with it. It will move sticks, wet leaves and anything in its way. If you are looking for a blower there is no need to compare, just buy it. You will not be let down.

    Unbelievable Power!
    I use this blower a least a couple of hours per week and have done so for the last year. It starts on the first pull and is actually very light and easy to use. The gas tank lasts for easily over an hour-and-a-half at a time before I have to refill. The power is unbelievable; I'm a big guy and I have to lean into it when I put it to full power--it works fantastically. It used to take me several hours to clear my property of leaves and now that work has been shortened to 20 minutes. It will blow ... read more heavy wet leaves and even wet sand and gravel. If you need power, this is the blower I recommend!

    I am very satisfied with my Stihl product
    i have read reviews on hard starting and flooding problems with Stihl products. I had that problem with my first purchase and took it back to the dealer. He got it started and then took the time to show me what to do and what not to do. I love all three of the gas driven products I have and would not buy a different brand.

    I would recommend this blower for the small home owner.
    My experience with the BG55 has been great. It always starts; prime once, choke on twice, choke off once and it's running, just half to milk it up to full throttle. However I need a blower with a little more turbulence, acorns and leaves move well but a good twig laughs at it. Overall it's a good machine

    excellent for the average home
    You can't beat the power of a gas engine! I had a battery blower prior to this and it was just ok. This Stihl 56 is great. Light enough to carry and more power. The very best thing is the eave trough cleaning attachment.In a few minutes I can walk around my home and clear every gutter and downspout without a ladder. Time saving and significantly safer.

    This product is awesome
    I was a little hesitant at first to purchase this leaf blower because of the price but I am very happy with the over all performance. I bought my house a few months ago and I first bought a stihl weed wacker. When it was time to buy a leaf blower I went right back to the store to purchase again. The power is great and it is so nice not to have to worry if it will start. I definitely will continue to purchase all of my tools from Stihl.

    Perfect for my yard
    My son has a backpack blower that is to big for my yard. I have 5000 sq. ft. to use a blower on. My son has 1 1/2 acres. His blower is a BR 500. Brought the blower home and gave it a try. Much to my surprise this is more than enough power. Possibly more than I need. Every thing Stihl says it is and more. I am going back today and get the gutter attachment because I do not like getting up to the roof. Easy start, loads of power, and easy to use. I have always believed spend the money for ... read more quality, you get what you pay for. Great value for the money

    Great Blower
    I purchased this blower 3 years ago for fall leaf cleanup and general homeowner use. It gets used at least once a week for cleaning grass clipping from garage, driveway and street. One of the things I appreciate about the blower is that it starts very easily. When the engine is cold, I can always start the blower with three pulls. The blower idles well and has a lot of power for moving leaves and debris-even when wet. I've read other reviews about hard starting and rough running but honestly, ... read more I have had no such issues. I am very pleased with this blower and have had zero issues.

    High powered machine built for work
    This blower is a true power house that will make short work of yard work. I appreciate the ability to save hours on jobs that used to take a lot of time and effort. The large fuel tank is definitely a plus in eliminating the need to stop in the middle of a project. When a person gets serious about their work and is tired of using the cheaper blowers, this is the one that will definitely provide a big step up.

    Right tool for the Job
    Finally up sized my backpack this year and sooooo glad I did. This handled 2+ acres and 4+ hours of non stop work without a hiccup and re fueled far less than my older smaller backpack. Wet leaves? No problem. Piles of leaves you could hide a Volkswagen behind? It will move those too. Right tool for the job. Very happy with it.

    Great Blower
    This is a great blower for residential use if you have large areas to blow. Even wet leafs or pine needle are no problem. Easy to start and run for long periods without needing to refueled. I would suggest getting the optional chest strap to ensure the straps don't slide to your shoulders.

    Should have bought years ago!
    I've never owned Stihl products before, but I'm a believer now. I'm I've had a hand held model for years and it gets heavy and isn't as powerful as this. We have about 1/3 acre and it does great with all the trees and leaves we have. I can use it all day no problem unlike my hand held by a different manufacturer. Starts real easy. I love the "cruise control" feature. Set the level of blowing power and then I just walk around the yard doing my thing. Less fatigue on my hands and fingers compared ... read more to my old hand held. My only concern is that I should have bought it years ago!

    Wow. Best purchase I've made in a long time
    After using a hand held blower for uears to clear fall leaves, I decided to take the plunge and purchase a back pack blower and what a pleasure. I compated similar units from other manufacturers in use by my neighbors. All had their plusses amd minuses such as noise, power, comfort, price, etc. The Stihl met or exceeded in all categories. What a pleasure to operate.

    Unbelievable
    Have been using a Stihl handheld blower for years and finally bit the bullet on the backpack. It is so much more powerful, which allows me to accomplish my work so much faster and more efficiently (I have five, yes five, sweet gum trees and those balls are a pain-this new blower makes clearing them so easy). It was also powerful enough to blow out my downspout and underground drains, which have been partially clogged for a long time. It starts easy and works just like a Stihl and did not disappoint.

    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!

    Impressive product
    Upgraded to the 500 and was amazed with the power, ease of use, quick start, and weight. What used to take me an hour now only takes 20 minutes.

    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.
