    The STIHL anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.
  • Multi-Function Control Handle
    Having easy access to all of the controls on one comfortable handle makes it easy to complete tasks so the operator’s hand never has to leave the handle.

  • Purge Pump Primer
    The purge pump primer feature enables the user to prime the carburetor with fuel, enabling easier starting. The purge pump primer is designed in a way that the operator cannot flood the machine by priming the carburetor too many times. Flooding the engine is still possible if the choke is not removed after the engine fires.
  • Throttle Trigger Lock with Built-In Momentary Stop Switch
    The built-in stop switch allows the user to turn off the engine with a simple press of the button or lever. When the engine is off, the throttle lock automatically returns to the “start” setting. Your power tool will be ready to be started when you’re ready to get back to work.

BR 600 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 611.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Blower !!! At 23 lbs this is the lightest of the backpack blowers. It also packs a good punch, blowing away everything that I need to get rid of. Well worth the money if you want a great quality blower. It is easy to start and comfortable to wear. The "cruise control" function is awesome !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEAST Needed something for residential to replace my 10 year old blower from another mfg. This BR 600 is almost too much machine for my yard. 1/3 acre with lots of tree cover. maples, pines. This machine has plenty of power with some to spare. No concerns with wet leaves, or anything sticking to the grass. Cuts my clean up time in 1/2.I wanted to make sure what i bought had enough power. Was going to go for the BR 450 but for $50 more, couldn't pass this one up. It's actually lighter than the 450. Easy controls and starts right up. Wish I bought one years ago......actually looking forward to Fall to put this bad boy to work.Thanks Stihl

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! Was in the market for a blower for a new property and the salesperson recommended that I upgrade to the 600, I do not regret that decision! Used the blower on leaves leftover from the previous fall and the 600 more than took care of them, super happy with the features and advice given by dealer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised Ten years after initial purchase with about 100-150 hours of engine run time a year it still has the power the day it was new. I'd love to upgrade to one of Stihl's larger backpack blowers, but this one won't quit. At the time of purchase this unit was Stihl's most powerful offering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to start and lots of power For a all around Blower my BR -600 is the best it saves so much time because of the power and how easy it starts , even my wife can start it with ease , I have a 23x68 ft patio that sits near trees so we get a lot of leaves sticks etc , I use it quite often to blow the patio off , and for leaves in the fall it’s the best and fast !
