Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable, extremely powerful Got this when it first came out in September.. the power is incredible. When they say it's the most powerful backpack blower, they aren't kidding! Starts on first pull every time, all day long. Trigger lock on the handle is well designed. Love the adjustable tube. The straps are the best and most comfortable I've used. Highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from power rush I work a large acreage that is a dedicated wildlife refuge with the only passage thru it being my 2 mile driveway in an wild understory and large oak trees. On my weekly treks to jobs as an Architect I have to use that driveway and it's prone to be covered + clogged with limbs, leaves, acorns, on and on. Well this hoss of a machine can make it look like a suburban private drive in short order! Man what a rush to see all those leaves, acorns, old vines , branches....EVERYTHING just literally fly off the asphalt ! No more tractor pushing it...........Spend the bucks and save your time and equipment.And as an added bonus, it's SO easy to start and use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best! I have had the BR500 and the 600 and this lives up to being the 700 and the biggest backpack blower. Of course the MPH rating is less but it has the blowing power that the other 2 do not have and the MPH rating is not a factor. It will blow wet leaves too! I have only had it for a month but I am sure the Quality, Dependability and definitely the Power is there because it is a Stihl product so I am sure it will live up to its name! You will pay for the 700 but Stihl products have value! I have 2 chainsaws a polesaw and a blo/vac and all are Stihl products and they all work great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best blower ever I highly recommend this blower to any landscaper who is taking it serious. Other then the Br 600, this is about the best and most powerful blower out there on the market. Don't get me wrong you could chose the Br 700 or the Br 600 and still get a blower with good power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Increased volume makes leaf cleanup a breeze I have a large property to maintain in the country, dominated predominantly by large oak trees. I owned the BR600 for three seasons and it did a great job. Once the piles got too big, I eventually had to resort to raking onto a tarp and dragging them away. It worked for what I needed it to do.Once I saw the 700 with its increased air volume, I sold my 600 and won't look back.The increased volume makes a HUGE difference on the amount of leaves that I have. Even piles of wet leaves are no problem. The best I can to is to compare it in terms of storms. A tornado is destructive; with its extremely high velocity winds it can level houses down to the foundation for miles and miles. The BR600 was better at blowing sticks and smaller rocks. However, the BR700 is like a hurricane. A hurricane's winds aren't as fast, but it will move the entire ocean and cause massive destruction. That is the BR700 vs the 600. They are both great machines, but for the massive amount of leaf cleanup that I use the 700 for, there is a world of difference.
