Reviews

BR 600 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 431.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Good First let me tell you the problems with this blower, one month of ownership the choke lever breaks off. Second the straps are very thin and not comfortable. Third I have a leak now on the blower after only five months of ownership. Fourth this 4-2 stroke technology is terrible, it has no power and it is no good blowing leaves. It is back at the shop again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent power, shoulder straps lacking I have several other Stihl power products but when my old backpack blower recently broke I replaced it with the BR600. The BR600 has excellent power, easy to start, and has cut my leaf blowing time considerably. My only complaint is the shoulder strap setup is very uncomfortable compared to my old blower. The shoulder straps are to thin and tend to twist and the padded sections are to narrow. I find myself spending too much time readjusting the straps while operating the unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BR600 backpack blower I recently bought a br600 backpack blower. It starts easy, runs great, plenty of power. The only complaints I have with is that the straps are to close together for me and I am not a big person, it is hard to get the second strap on because of this. I have the straps as loose as they can be. My second complaint is that this unit needs a third strap to hold the two straps together in front, they,(straps) keep working their way off my shoulders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light but excellent power and was easy to start. Was using another name brand, the lightest I could find that had good power as medical issues limit my weight carry.At Ace, I was surprised to find that the Stihl was lighter even than my current (which is still one of the lightest around) but I was assured I would have more power.Got it home, started it up and the power was superb, while the weight plus their anti-vibration system made it a pleasure to use. No only was it lighter, but the much greater airflow let me finish in less than 1/2-1/3 the time, so I had to carry it far less.I'd heard about Stihl and now I know why people love them. Add me to the list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the BEAST of all blowers This is my second 600 blower, and it never disappoints. The tasks I use this for around rhe neighborhood make the neighbors marvel at the power compared to their other brand blowers that are marketed as "good alternatives" to Stihl.... subsequently, I sold my first 600 to my neighbor... I hated to see it go, but I promptly went out and bought the newest 600.... EVEN BETTER THAN THE FIRST!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Life Equipment I have owned multiple Stihl blowers over the last 20 years. All of them still continue to work with no real issues. The invested value has been well worth every dollar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very powerful Good ergonomics, very powerful. Starts very good. Can't stand small engines that are hard to start. If it does not start on the second pull its out of gas. I run only non ethanol fuel to reduce build up and for extended fuel life. I have a lot of trees. Oaks and hickory. This thing blows large piles of hickory nuts almost like leaves. Had it for a year now and it gets a real workout at my place. I replaced a smaller husqvarna with this thing when it got hard to start. It runs circles around any blower I have ever used
