Rated 5 out of 5 by this blower has good power I bought this in lieu of an Echo 500. My main reason was the weight, only being 12 pounds vs 22.doesn't have as much power, but for what I use it for it is perfect. Mainly I use it to dry off my cars when I wash them, and keep my property starts very easily,it will blow grass clippings and small piles of leaves easily. If you're looking to blow massive amounts of leaves this is not the blower for you. Overall I am very happy with this product. June 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by this equipment is the perfect balance of weight to power I bought this on recommendation of a friend. I expected the unit to be much heavierand have been pleased by how light and how much power it has. This is another great Stihl product. June 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good backpack blower Bought this stihl br200 backpack blower to replace old handheld blower( not a stihl). The stihl br 200 cranks very easily every time.It is light weight and comfortable to use.It is lacking in power a bit , however , it isplenty powerful to do the work around ourproperty. Overall a very good backpackblower for the money. I have had this blowerfor a few months now and I have no regrets. May 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Old muscles no longer able to take extended raking. I've always liked using a leaf rake to pick up leaves, however as I've aged I no longer have the stamina in my arms for extended raking. Have used the big backpack blower at times but it's too big for my yard so settled on the BR 200. Perfect size for my yard and my back,. Starts first pull and really like the new choke system and kill switch. I can finally get all the debris off my driveway. Something a broom wouldn't do. May 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightweight, efficient blower I needed to move up from a handheld blower to a backpack style and STIHL has the widest selection of backpack blowers available. I was unsure of what size/model to purchase and the sales rep patiently went through the specs with me for each model. In the end I chose the BR 200 and am very happy with it. It is lightweight, easy to start, and comfortable to wear for long periods of time. I have a large residential lot with many mature oak trees and need a blower that can handle large amounts of wet leaves. The BR 200 is efficient and powerful enough to do the job, and take much less time than my old handheld blower. I am thrilled with the weight and size of this model. The fueling could not be easier and the starting is equally simple. I would recommend this product to anyone searching for a backpack style blower. My only caveat is the presence of gas fumes from the engine, which is unavoidable but may cause issues for some users. May 1, 2014

Rated 2 out of 5 by Keeps falling apart I bought this for my wife who helps me with my landscaping business. She could not handle a heavier blower. The size is great. It really lacks power. I have a stihl hand blower that is more powerful. Also it keeps falling apart literally. Last time all of the internal bolts fell out. I repair equipment so after an hour of taking it completely apart, I had it running again. The other issue is the air cleaner cover is always coming loose. Plastic!! I have replaced it once already.Redmax has a similar weight blower, next time it disintegrates I'm trying one of those.Sorry guys, I love all of your other products. Just not this one.Also my BG 86 keeps falling apart . Only use it 2 hours per week. March 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Stihl product! I've had my blower for over a year and it is great for its size! It blows leaves and grass clipping with no problem at all. I love the fact that it has so much power, is easy to start and is very light for a backpack blower! My nine year old likes to help me when we a working in the yard. He thinks it's the coolest thing that he can actually start it and use it. Highly recommend this blower! February 18, 2014
