Rated 5 out of 5 by At first glance this blower looks well built I have operated my blower a few times as I purchased it back in January with the sweet rebate from Stihl. It has cranked each time with only one to three pulls. The motor is very strong and it blows a lot of air removing wet leaves with little effort. Waiting for the summer to put it through it paces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product This blower has proven to be reliable. It is easy to start and has plenty of power for any job. Not to mention it is light weight for its size and power. Great buy!! February 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice piece of business This blower will do just about everything the average homeowner would need. It moves large piles of semi-wet leaves, cleans driveways and sidewalks and gets leaves out from underneath shrubs. I have even used it to blow light snow off the driveway.The only thing, is it takes a little bit to get used to starting and putting your arms through the straps and getting them adjusted. Then, if you need to shut the blower off, there is no way to restart without taking it off....a small price to pay for a piece of gear that works so well but noteworthy. February 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome power I had several hand held cheap blowers in the past. I decided to get what begicks nursery suggested. It cost three times as much as the cheap ones and works 10 times better. Well thought out design. January 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Blower Got this blower for christmas for my small landscaping company and I am not disappointed has plenty of power used it to blow snow starts no problem I don't even have to choke it I just prime and pull about one to two times. May be a home owner blower but works great for me on commercial jobs running it about every day now for hours. I usually use it with just the bottom extension and it works great on moving wet leafs, wet saw dust, and light snow so i'm sure that it will be perfect for grass. The only thing is it is hard to get into tight areas. January 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the weight and it's powerful! I'd recommend the Stihl BR 350. Great machine. It might hurt a bit for the price, but you'll be glad you bought it.I live on a corner lot in a heavily oaked sub division in Florida. No snow, but lots of oak leaves to tend too. This blower gets the job done in half the time it used to take with my old hand held.Pay a little bit now and rest assured you gain that cost savings in time spent out on your lawn. Great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 blower makes easy work of cleaning up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent mid-level blower I wanted a mid-strength blower and I liked that this one is made in America. I have a 1-acre property with several trees in front and behind the house, and this is just the right size for it. I've had the blower for one fall season now.The BR350 is just strong enough to blow the leaves out to the tree lawn when they're wet, though it takes a while if I wait until the trees are bare. With dry leaves I can do the whole job in one session pretty quickly.The blower starts within 4 pulls every time and runs smoothly. I trust that will continue, since the Stihl trimmer I've had for a few years does.The backpack is comfortable enough to blow for an hour or more without fatigue. December 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Blower Although I had a problem after the third tank of gas, but the dealer resolved it, it is a great blower and will blow the leaves twice as fast as my old blower. November 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! I am an Ace Hardware employee and as an employee I've had to start and build numerous Stihl products for customers. I'm also a small engine mechanic in my free time. I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase of my BR350 blower. I'm extremely satisfied because Stihl requires us to start any Stihl equipment before it leaves the store, which helps improve quality control and ensure the customer gets a working unit every time. And when a unit does fail to properly start we have Stihl trained technicians that are able to fix it on site. Other than the customer service side of it, the blower itself has many amazing features that I appreciate seeing as a small engine mechanic, things like the automatic choke that turns off when the throttle is pulled, a very helpful feature that helps the customer use the machine properly without having to put much thought to it. The blowing power is incredible as well. I've used it to blow snow off my driveway at about 1 and a half inches and it worked flawlessly. I'm overall very satisfied with my Stihl products and would recommend them to anyone wanting a quality product that will last a lifetime. November 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Great product. Easy to use. Lightweight. Bought from local hardware for relationship and service if needed. November 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This Product is exactly what it is stated to be and what it is suppose to accomplish! Large Black Top driveway. Always needing dust/debris removal. Several tree's in the area of the home. Purchased the best and the best does the rest! BR350 is a bad boy that accomplishes the job. Thank U Stihl/Deer Country Eqp. LLC November 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by More than I expected Our yard is just about a half acre, but we have several oak trees which produce an abundance of leaves each autumn. The BR 350 might be more than we need, but when our schedule doesn't allow us to keep up with the pace of the leaves falling, it is strong enough when the leaves are several inches deep to pick them up and move them along.

Rated 5 out of 5 by You get what you expect for this price & you should This blower is very powerful, starts easily if you mix oil - fuel correctly, like any 2-stroke engine. I am impressed by the overall convenience and relatively quiet operation considering the volume of air it moves. Even so, I always wear hearing protection. Reading the direction is always a good idea. Prime 2-3 times, put choke on if engine is cold, and pull the starter. Once it fires, reduce choke, then off after 30 - 45 secs. It is comfortable to wear for up to an hour at a time without fatigue. Overall this is the best leaf blower I have used. Well worth it in time savings. November 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love My Ghostbuster I have used it several times now ti use on my lawn as well as in my 4-car garage. It starts first time every time with one pull. My son has the professional model and it has more power, but mine works very well for me. I am very pleased with the overall performance so far and have no reservations on my purchase ! My wife calls it the "Ghostbuster" because when I use it, it looks like Bill Murray 's Ghostbuster backpack. October 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Why did I wait so long to buy it?!?!?! I gave up raking years ago, but have always used a hand-held blower. The Stihl BR 350 is very easy to use, packs LOTS of power, and has enough fuel capacity to clear leaves and debris from my entire yard (an acre of oaks and maples) on a single tank.The only potential improvement I can conceive of would be the addition of the East2Start technology found in my Stihl chain saw. The blower starts easily and reliably as-is, but that would be a nice addition. October 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Leaf Blower I have ever had I just purchased this from a dealer that had in front of store as dent and scrach sale. Asked what was wrong with it someone purchased it and did not like so returned it for bigger one. looked brand new was missing end nozzel. Asked if there was one I could purchase store manager said let me look in back I might have one. Turns out he did and put it on the end of blower. So I bought it and 6 pack of oil. He started it up and ran it for a few minuts ran fine. Took it home and started blowing leafs that afternoon took me 2 hours to get the back yard clean. What a great blower run and starts right up no issues has great power and is not real loud. I did get tired with one arm and wished I could switch to my other one, but thats just a personal thing. I would buy again. October 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Blower! Finally a blower that truly moves the leaves and debris and not just stir them up. Love it. Weight is just right and balanced pack for a 54 year old woman. October 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. October 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worked very well thus far. Worked very well thus far and it seems to crank easy and run as intended. October 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Say goodbye to tarps, rakes, and achy backs. Maybe even some whiny helpers. I bought this at the beginning of the summer to clear at least three years of decaying leaves in the back lot. There is a half acre that doesn't get sun because of the shear volume of trees back there. I really wanted to get some grass growing so I needed something to clear all that out. This was the perfect solution. It blew leaves down to the dirt. It wasn't going to break the bank, and I probably won't need a new one. Ever.It moves leaves, it moves sticks, it finds things long forgotten, it makes you feel like a child (until you remember you're doing lawn work). It works so well my neighbor bought one, and I had never let him use mine. Fall is here and I smile on the inside as the leaves come down. October 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Start Button Start Button confusing (ON or OFF would be better). Other than that great machine August 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy to start I too am new to the Stihl family as this is my first purchase. Blower works great with plenty of power. I'd prefer it be a little on the lighter side but a great product. July 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to start good power Would recommend to friends and family, dealer very professional and knowledgable June 26, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Too Touchy Gave my brother my 5 yr old Craftman's blower and i purchased the 350. Never was a great performer but now it barley blows. Did all I can now I have to spend $$ to have the dealer look at it. My brother loves the one I gave him. June 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great birthday gift! I have a Stihl weedeater that works great, so I knew that when I purchased a leaf blower it had to be a Stihl. I went and looked at the different models then started dropping hints to my husband that I sure would like to have one; he took the hint and I got one for my birthday. Great gift, best husband in the world! June 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by BR 350 I like everything about my BR350 blower except for the way backpack tends to slide down on my left shoulder. A better cinch type strap would work much better. Also I'm a lefty so it takes a little getting used to. I haven't used it in the fall yet so we will see how it performs when the leaves hit the ground. Stay tuned. June 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stihl very good products I love this leaf blower. We have a lot of leaves to take care of, I used to rake them all. Now I just blow them into the woods, and this little machine does the trick very nicely. It starts very easily and keeps on running. I would say on an average I used this machine at least four hours a day for a couple weeks. Its light enough but has real power. I would deffinetly buy other Stihl products. The value for your money is excellent. June 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by All the power I need this blower has all the power one should require for any home yard work. I definitely recommend this blower. May 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product fot the money I bought this product right before the fall season 2013. I have over 20 trees that drop their leaves. This blower did not have any problem with the leaves, dry or wet! The power is very good. This was very good blowing the lite snow also. Very comfortable straps also. Lite enough to carry for over a hour. April 6, 2014
