    Great little blower.
    I like that it is lightweight and starts on the first pull. I wish it had a little more blowing power like the Husqvarna I used. I use it all the time now because of its low maintanence and ease of starting and use: Cleaning pine neadles off the driveway. +5 Blowing gravel into potholes. +1 Starting bonfires. +5 Cleaning out the garage. +5 Blowing out the car after dusty drives. +5 Cleaning up leaves and grass clippings. +4 Blowing mud out of trench +2 Overall I am very happy ... read more with it, is small light and easy to use.

    Awesome product
    Just bought this blower few hours ago and have only used it a total of 20 min. I'm blown away at just how strong this thing is. I own stihl weed trimmers and hedge trimmers due to running a small lawn service but only had a red max hand blower up to now. Was finishing a customers yard earlier today and while blowing off driveway and pool area the clipping got wet and it took forever to blow everything off. So guess this was a frustration buy but oh so glad I have it now

    Great power and very dependable
    Best money I've ever spent on a blower period.I will probably never have to buy another blower.

    Very Quite and Does the Job
    I Maintain Grounds equipment on a university campus and we recently purchased three BR 500 Blowers for our department. All three are working great and it is much nicer around campus with the reduced noise levels from these blowers. We have many trees and at any one time are running 7 to 8 leaf blowers during the Fall to keep up. The BR 500 Blowers move less air than other blowers that are available but they provide enough air to do the job and as stated above produce noticeably less noise.

    Great design for the urban leaf blower.
    Excactly what was needed in a noise conscience environment. Stihl enough power to lift wet leaves of the sidewalks. If I was to use it everyday I would probably go for the BR600 but since it is only used sparingly this does the job I bought it for.

    Great vacuum for those tight places in your yard
    This thing does what it is designed to do. Great for vacuuming up leaves all over the yard. Instead of making a mess trying to blow leaves out of tight areas you can vacuum and be done. I only use the vac on dryer leaves so I haven't had any clogging problems. Great also for clean up after edging, mowing etc. Bag can get heavy as it fills but that just tells you its time to dump. Runs like a champ. So easy to start. Very happy with my purchase as I am with my Stihl chain saw.

    This blow/vac is worth every penny!!!
    I've owned this product for about six weeks and have used it every weekend. I've used the shredder system twice. The easy to start system STIHL has is second to none. I've tried several other brands, and finally decided to spend the extra money and get a well known and reliable blow/vac. I wish I would have bought this a long time ago. The ease of use is superb. Switching over from blower to shredder is very easy; Especially after you do it the first time. Don't waste your money on other ... read more brands. Bite the bullet and get a STIHL.

    Plenty of power for blowing and mulching
    After a lot of research this was definitely one of the better buys I've ever made! Starts on the first pull every time and has PLENTY of power for not only blowing leaves but mulching them also! The mulching intake has a steel blade along with the plastic impeller which makes short work of small twigs. My last one had an all plastic impeller which had to be replaced every couple of years. My only complaint is that it seems to go through fuel quickly; but that may be user error.

    great for larger yards
    own a acre and a half lot in Texas with over 35 large mature oak trees. I previously would rake the leaves in the fall and winter and it seemed like I was spending almost three full weekends to complete. Purchased this blower based on the recommendation of a park department employee that I saw using a similar but larger unit in a city park. Honestly, this blower has cut my work down to about 4 hours. Great machine even though a little bit on the pricey side but then again you get what you pay for.

    Without a doubt the most powerful blower I have used
    I bought this to help out with all the leaves and pinestraw I have to clean up every year. Best tool for the job without a doubt. Blew my entire yard and had a pile two feet high and this blower was still pushing the pile. I was also planning on dethatching my lawn. Well thats not necessary anymore this blower took care of that. If its not attched by the root its gone. Great investment if your tired of raking like I was.

    best power to weight ratio of any blower with cool features
    i have been a stihl fan for years except blowers. i saw this the other day , demoed it and took it home. you hit a home run with this one stihl. its light and powerful. the adjustable nozzle works great for me to adapt to my needs. it can play ball with the two strongest blowers out there.. the echo pb770t and redmax ebz8500.. and is lighter. i own all three blowers mentioned above and use them all but cant keep my br450 off my back. love it stihl. p.s. stihl i also own ( orange and white ;) ... read more ) ms192 ms290 fs100rx fc110 bt45 hl100

    Totally worth the $$$
    I bought the bg 86 blower and love it. And had to try the gutter kit because i didn't want to climb any more roofs. This kit worked perfectly, didn't fall apart at full speed, and blew all that back crud that coats the gutter after a year. Don't buy cheap. Stihl makes a great product you can count on.

    Wow
    I wish I would have bought this years earlier. From box to blower it took about 15 minutes. The most difficult part was attaching the hook elbows together...tight fit. I experienced NO issues of the pipes pulling apart or blowing off. It took me 30 minutes with a BG 56 c-e to blow out 320' of 6" gutters. The gutters were full of oak leaves and pine needs that were wet from the rain the night before. Although it is light, it does get hard on the back waving around a 10' hose.

    Great for those who hate roof tops.
    I haven't tried blowing leaves out of the gutters from the ground, but i have a roof with several different pitches on it. Using one 90 degree elbow and 3 extension pieces, i am able to get all my gutters without getting close to the edge. I don't care for roof tops and i don't like ladders, this allows me to clean the gutters and roof and stay far away from the edge. Definitely well worth the money.

    There's a reason....
    There's a reason why Stihl products cost little more. It's because you get what you pay for. This blower falls into that category. From looks and design to performance, I'm glad a paid a few dollars more for a Stihl. The blower is powerful enough for the average homeowner and has a low db rating so it's not that loud. From the minute I brought this home, I had a blast (no pun intended) cleaning up all of the leaves....from heavy and wet Maple leaves to lighter and smaller Japanese maple this ... read more blower makes easy work of cleaning up.

    Excellent Blower
    I bought this blower to clear my new yard. I live in the woods and have about 3/4 acre of yard surrounded by oaks and maples and pines. This blower has surpassed my expectations. It has handled the carpet of leaves that lands in the yard and will blow a 10" high pile with no problem. It will run for an hour and a half on a tank of fuel. I highly recommend this blower. It's easy on the back too. I love it so much, I convinced my brother to buy one.

    Great Blower
    This blower has great power to blow away almost anything on your lawn. It has the power that you have to pay a lot more at other manufacturers. The blower is comfortable to wear with it's great padding for your back. lastly the blower has great features that no other manufacture has, for example the choke sets to run when you throttle up the blower and the multi-function switch that lets you set a blowing speed and turn off the blower on one switch. I highly recommend the BR 350 backpack leaf blower.
