BR 800 X MAGNUM® is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Blower Acually rather lightweight compared to what I was expecting. Great blower, can clear my whole driveway of debris in 10 seconds or less. Gutters... no problem, dry your car after a wash with the hose... no waterspots. This thing is the cats pajamas. Hoping it will be as reliable as the rest of my Stihl products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One word: Awesome I was using a hand-held blower for years. Did the job, but in the fall it showed its weakness with leaves. Decided to go for broke and got the BR800X. This thing BLOWS (pun not intended). Cuts the amount of time spent clearing the walkways after mowing. Can't attest to leaves yet since I bought it in spring. But the power is amazing, it is by far superior. And it is surprisingly light - I used a BR600 before and this feels lighter than that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing will blow you away The first time I strapped this on my back, I had it pretty loose, and I quickly learned that wasn't a good idea as it almost blew itself off my back. This blower is so quiet and powerful! Im happy my blower can't be heard from a mile away now. Im sure it will last a while beside my array of STIHL products that I use on a daily basis. For a average height, broad shoulder male, it fits well and isn't heavy. The price was hard to swallow but you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light Weight! I have been looking for more power along with a light weight also. I bought this unit on the online shoot out testing with the lawn care service providers.So I decided on buying it and I am very impressed with the power and the comfort too. Starts easy with pretty decent fuel consumption as well. I own the BR - 600 also which is nearly 9yrs old with no problems period. I just hope this unit is reliable as the BR- 600 and I will be fine with it. Only complaint is the carburetor had need of some adjustments so soon. It’s running great now. Well pleased period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from powerful and easy to start This is a great product and quality manufactured. I was looking at a 600 but there was little to no difference in weight. Top notch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tim the Toolman would love it. I had a STIHL BR 430 leaf blower for 15 years. It is still great. However, I wanted to do my raking faster, so I got the 800. I have only used it once, but it is a monster. It pushes more leaves / pine needles faster and further. It is definitely heavier and bigger, so it may not be the best choice for a small person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good purchase I'm just a homeowner that wanted a powerful blower that could not be heard a mile away.The BR 800 was the answer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a Good Thing Newton Discovered Gravity Wow! If there weren't any gravity, I would be jettisoned into orbit. This thing has some serious blow power.The unit easily clears twiggs and small branches, among other things, from the lawn with authority. The controls are conveniently placed for ease of operation. I personally find that a waist belt should be added to this unit to keep the unit from pushing off the right side of your back when in full throttle. Seems I have to keep adjusting the shoulder harness which does not always correct the issue. A waist belt will fix this. Otherwise, it is a really nice unit and deserves a 5 star rating.
