BR 700 is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great new model but needs some work Having had 15+ excellent years with my Stihl BR420, I sprung for the 700. It starts right up and the weight is well balanced. The increased air volume comes at the expense of air velocity. Dry leaves are moved quickly but not so with sticks, acorns and wet leaves. The BR420 does a better job with these. The real issue is that the antivibration springs between the back plate and the motor are not as firm as in my older model and the motor housing repeatedly pops off the rubber gaskets above the gas tank. It's shredding the gaskets bit by bit. Hopefully we'll get a recall/repair order on this otherwise great machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from well worth the money I bought this blower about 2 weeks ago, I am so glad that I did. I was using another brand for the last 3 years, I don't know why I didn't do it sooner. I only have 1/2 acre but I have 100 year old oak trees surrounding my house so the leaves are ridiculous. I have burnt 4 tanks of gas out of this thing and I love it. I bought the 600 to start with and it worked great as well, I just figured for the extra 50$ and the extra cfm that I needed it would be worth it and it was.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doctors should prescribe this product! I bought the BR 700 to do the typical fall clean-up but it is so much more than a leaf blower. It does a perfect job serving as my new snow blower. It would usually take me over 2 back aching hours to shovel my 300' asphalt driveway when we get 1 to 3 inches of snow. With the BR 700, I can do the whole driveway in 20 minutes and it does a way cleaner job than a shovel, plus my back feels great when I get done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Blower So I have a huge yard, and a lot of trees. I had an electric blower but it was brutal work. Went to the local dealer and bought the 700. It is awesome! I've used it several times already. Easy start. Powerful. Moves wet and dry leaves easily. It's a beast. It's also pretty fun. If you have a small yard, you for sure don't need this much power - you may want it anyway. But if you've got a big job this is your machine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from In the middle I handle operations for a multi-million dollar company in the greater Cleveland area. We have BR600 and 580BTS backpacks and added 3 BR700s in late summer. Me and my crews feel the BR700 does not blow matted wet leaves, twigs, and nuts like the BR600 or move leaf piles like 580BTS. The straps are too flimsy and the fuel tank is too small. While it is a good blower, I feel it does not exhibit the correct symmetry of volume and velocity which makes it less productive than other backpacks blowers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soooo much power!!! Just got the BR700 tonight, it rained all day and could not wait to try it out! I wish I could post the video! Normal blowers can't blow leaves as far as this thing can when it's dry out!! The wife was not too happy with me until she tried it....she took over, I could not get it back! So I think I can speak for the two of us. I give the BR 700 a 110%
