Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied I bought this BR600 8 years ago and I use it year round. It has never failed me yet and always cranks up on the second pull. If there is something on the ground and isn't attached to the ground permenantly, it gets blown away. I have blown limbs from tress with this blower, makes yard sweeping easy. This blower has been very realible and ease of use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is as advertised The BR600 is a powerful but light weight backpack blower. The backpack is very comfortable and the results around my yard and driveway are impressive. Wet leaves, wet grass and sand are all moved easily and quickly. I wish that I had purchased this blower years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for From large areas with lots of rocks for leaves to pack into to wide open grass areas this is one excellent blower.Retail price is a real high threshold but this is a professional grade unit that really does the job. It's powerful and fast and is a great tool to have. Dealer suggested this model and although it was at the top of the mark I am not disappointed. Not too heavy, not too loud, and it starts right away.Other blowers are cheaper but the power gives you great flexibility to go to the max if needed while allowing you to back off a bit when just moving things along.This is my 4th Stihl purchase ( 2 chainsaws and a line trimmer before) and once again I have zero complaints.Outstanding products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality blower comfort not so much The BR 600 has plenty of power. The weight is perfect and the blower is reliable. The shoulder straps don't go down far enough on my shoulders making it uncomfortable. My crew members agree. If the shoulder straps went down further and had a cooling fan to cool down your back the blower would be perfect.
