  • 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Blower is Powerful The BR 600 is an easy start, powerful blower capable of getting your job done quick. I love the fact that I can now clear my entire in-ground pool trampoline cover of leaves from one side easily with the powerful wind velocity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really moves the leaves We have 1.6 acres with large deciduous trees. The BR600 is perfect for that. Very light but powerful, quiet for a unit of its type, and starts right up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stiching on shoulder strap I would have given this a 5 star except the stitching on one shoulder strap was partially missing, with it failing after about 30 min of use. Never-the-less, the distributor quickly ordered and installed a new strap under warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great leaf blower I had a Ryobi blower for almost 15 years. I fixed it several times and kept it going because I could always count on it starting within 3 pulls. The carb finally gave out and there were no replacement parts. Evaluating the market I saw that reviews on consumer quality lawn equipment was not favorable. I also have a Troybilt trimmer that is impossible to start. I decided it was time to upgrade to professional grade equipment. I read excellent reviews on the BR600 and saw that it was the leaf blower of choice by professional lawn services. Now that I have used it a few times I am very impressed. It starts easily in 2-3 pulls and it has much more power than my previous leaf blower. It easily moves acorns and pine needles from grass and gets the job done in half the time. My only regret is that I waited so long. I should of purchased the BR 600 sooner. The only con to this blower is that even on idle it has enough thrust to spin around when you are trying to put it on your back. I can live with that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Owned a BR550 since 2008 and just replaced with the 600. Outstanding! First time I used it made it worth every cent. My grandfather used Stihl products since I can remember saying the word orange. I am a lifetime Stihl product owner. Never disappointed.
