    This product is light, compact and easy to use.
    The Stihl BR200 back blower is a great one to have. The small but powerful engine blows leaves at a fast clip. At 12 lbs, it don't even feel like you are wearing the blower. The BR200 blower starts on the 2 or 3 pull! The Stihl BR200 blower is easy to store and easy to use. The fuel efficiency of the small blower will last at least 2 hrs before refilling. I would say this blower is top of the line. I would recommend this product to anyone.

    Where has this tool been all my life!
    First off, Many kudos to Rockledge Mowers. I ordered my unit and when it arrived, they called me. I Got there on a Saturday morning and it was all set up for me. They showed me how to use it and I was off and running. This blower is very easy to start, light weight for what it is, very easy to adjust, and man can it move some debris. It has cut my blowing and clean up time almost in half. Additionally, it just sips the fuel. I cant say enough about this product or Rockledge Mowers! Keep up the ... read more great work. I will be back for more Stihl power equipment.

    This blower is everything and then some....professional product at a affordable price
    After reading the reviews from this site I called my Local Stihl dealer and purchased this unit over the phone. I picked it up that afternoon and immediately went home and used it to clean up from the storm we had a few days ago....It is most definitely a professional product at a affordable price...Stihl hit the nail on the head for home owners looking for a good quality back pack blower at a reasonable price..I would certainly say to anyone that ask to go and buy this blower....Money well spent

    Grab & Go Type of Tool
    It is such a pleasure to use this blower - no pull start gas engine to irritate my arthritic shoulders. Alittle heavy with the AP 180 battery but no problem. Unit has plenty of power. My only wish is that STIHL comes out with a fan shaped nozzel for this blower.

    Real power from a cordless
    I was very skeptical when I bought my first cordless piece of lawn equipment. It was the Stihl cordless chainsaw, and from the first limb I cut I was impressed. This tool is no different. The convenience of no cord, no fuel, no pull start cannot be stressed enough. I still have the gas version of both and use them when I know I will be at it for an extended period of time, but for a quick cleanup or quick trim this Stihl equipment cannot be beat if for no other reason than time saved, but there ... read more is no loss of quality on a job well done.

    Great Product
    Bought this tool as an afterthought but couldn't be happier. My Stihl gas chainsaw died and needed replacement, got tired of mixing gas and oil and decided to go battery. But after buying charger and battery for chainsaw decided better off also getting blower (my plug in electric blower had also recently quit) since already had fixed cost in battery and charger. So guess which tool I use every few days? This blower is terrific, certainly quiet compared to electric and gas, and does great job ... read more clearing our long driveway and patio. Couldn't be happier with product. Chainsaw also great but not needed as much.

    Super functioning product with great quality.
    I purchased the Stihl BGE71 blower in June 2013. I've used it quite a few times and it meets all of my high expectations. I went w/ this model due to the two speed switch, the lower speed does come in handy when in tight spaces, in my garage, etc. This item is lightweight and of high quality. I have no problems with the cord. I would have went with the battery powered unit except it was a very high price and fairly low runtime. The electric product is great. No gas/oil/carb to mess with. Plug ... read more it in and its ready to go. My 50' cord does fine with most of my jobs. I add a second 50' cord when I need to get out just a bit further.

    Light weight, Easy to handle, Two speeds
    I bought the electric blower because I didn' t want to mess with the gasoline/oil mixture. This blower is light weight, easy to handle, and the two speeds are really nice. I use the low speed to get leaves out of my garden without blowing away the decorative rock and for blowing out the garage. This blower makes my yard clean up less time consuming and it even blows pine needles without blinking an eye. I get about 25 huge bags of leaves every year and this blower helped me get the leaves under ... read more control. Now if it could put the leaves in the bags, that would be awesome!. It is also quieter than other blowers I have used. I will definately buy another Stihl product again. It was so fun to use that I wanted to keep blowing and clean out my neighbors yard!

    Reliable replacement for my cordless
    This blower is clean, light, and allows my 8 year old to help in the yard clearing the driveway all summer. I am looking forward to leaf season for a change.

    I LOVE THIS THING....
    I have gone through so many gas blowers...I hate gas now. I am switching all of my tools to electric. This Stihl Blower is amazing. Light and super powerful. And no more messing with gas. Words can not say enough for this tool. I have the Stihl Trimmer (Electric) now.....I am done with gas. You will be very happy with this unit.

    I have several stihl products and everyone of them is still running strong. They are very dependable.

    This blower is very lightweight
    I have had this blower for four years and use it all 12 months of the year. Even today you can prime it, choke it, an guaranteed to start on the third pull every time. Just remember always use Stihl synthetic oil and I also recommend to always use a non-ethanol fuel with at least an 89 octane level. I have three other Stihl products and use the same fuel for all of them and have had them for years...no problems. One more thing. When using Stihl products, always spend a couple more $$$ and use ... read more Stihl trimmer line, Stihl bar oil, and as I said earlier use Stihl synthetic fuel oil. Don't cut corners because it is not just a tool,it is an investment.

    Excellent machine
    I bought this for my 1/2 acre flat property. It is powerful, starts right up, and comfortable to carry light weight. There are 2 huge oaks and 2 huge maples on my property, plus whatever blows in from neighbors. I was able to do the whole property in an hour with light to medium coverage and closer to 2 hours when I could not even see the lawn. It uses a tankful of gas at full throttle in about 45 minutes. Thankfully that's where the stihl motomix comes in handy. I have used it over a dozen ... read more times so far and have had no issues

    Stihl blowers are the best
    I've had many blowers and by far Stihl is the best. I own the lightweight backpack and an 11 yr. old hand held Stihl which is still running strong. This new one runs great & runs longer on a tank of gas.

    Great Price!
    My ole blower bit the dust do I purchased this Stilh. It's like going from a spring breeze to a tornado. All the difference in the world.

    Great value!
    If you're looking for a compact, light, powerful hand-held leaf blower look no further. The starting procedure is a little complicated but follow the instructions and it fires right up. My manual came with an errata sheet that incorporates the partial choke setting in the starting procedure. In actual use it's the best performing leaf blower I ever used.

    The best.
    I have had several leaf blowers. This is by far the best ever. I have had this unit for only a month. It is easy to start, nicely balanced, and it has a pleasant sound. I was surprised to find that most of my leaf blowing can be done from idle, no need for increased speed. I also enjoy the light weight, comfortably positioned trigger pull throttle, and wonderfully simple operation. Leaf blowing is fun now, something that I can enjoy, even look forward to. Good job STIHL, I really like it.
