Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very hard to start Please advise. Our BR 600,used only for at our home, can be very hard to start. We have taken to our local, Stihl authorized dealer/service provider to be diagnosed. We have been told that the blower is in great shape but for some reason, it is stopping on the compression stroke. In doing so, either the pull cord or my wrist will break before I can pull the motor through the compression stroke.Please help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats a rake... I have a 2-acre yard half covered in trees. We didn't rake all of it last fall as it was just a battle we could not win. I decided to pick up the BR600 and I'm very glad I did. It was blowing soaking wet leaves, sticks, branches and small rocks and a snake like they were nothing. The spots where I had leaves on top of mulch I could cut the throttle back most of the way and leave most of the mulch undisturbed. It's a lot quieter than I thought it would be. Also worked great on a bee that kept buzzing me...not sure where he ended up...Between this BR600, my FS70R and MS261 C-M I can keep the place looking nice! Anyway, highly recommend this leaf blower if you need something that can move leaves with not much effort!
