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 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 fits..it 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great blower I have owned several blowers. I have 2 acres with lots of trees and my handheld wasn't enough to remove the two feet of leaves I get in the fall. This blower has made my cleanup efforts much more enjoyable! Keep in mind, you do get what you pay for. April 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dependable, easy to carry, and just awesome!!! I just love this blower, blew off 4" of snow off my sidewalks and driveway in no time. February 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Won't be fooled again by mediocrity The reliability and durability of a used Stihl chainsaw led me to consider one of their blowers after several disappointments with lesser brands. The BR350 has ample power for our 25 acre campus, and the input I received from pros in the field satisfied me that I made the best choice for the school for the long haul. Although somewhat heavier than I expected, once it's strapped on and adjusted properly, it becomes an extension of my body and responds intuitively to changing conditions. Startup and maintenance are a breeze, making my job that much easier... I intend to turn to Stihl for future equipment purchases. February 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great power and ability to moe wet leaves I received this as a Birthday , Christmas, Fathers Day gift from my wife & kids. My old (15) Craftsman Has become problematic. The only draw back is it does not Vac. The leaves belong to the neighbor so they get them back (those that do not get bagged. GREAT PRODUCT!!!! February 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is a all around GREAT blower for moderate homeowner use. If you are looking for a powerful backpack blower, and trying to get away from a handheld this is the way to go. If you have a about 3 acres of land you would be in perfect shape with the BR 350. You can clean wet leaves, dry leaves, grass clippings,rocks, and even snow, it will clean it all. It is very light for its powerful engine. The straps are very soft and won't cut into your arm or neck at all. I was very shocked when I was using the blower and did not feel any vibration. It turns out it has shocks to absorb the vibration. The gas cap is a little hard to open due to child's safety but other than that this is the way to go. January 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent macine - right size, right weight, right power for my job. BR350 is the largest blower I have bought. I am 80 years old and was concerned I could not manage it. Turns out, it is relatively light and easy to handle. Starts easily and controls are handy. I can do my yard, drive (400 feet), 800 feet of roadway in 2 hours - no sweat. Than you Stihl!

Rated 5 out of 5 by powerful, light, dependable FUN Went in too buy the BR200 but it was suggested by the rep that I wouldn't be happy doing what I told him I wanted to do. Boy am I glad I took his advice. This machine is well built, starts every time first pull, light weight and comfortable to wear. Most of all it does the job and is fun to use. December 18, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Product I bought this product for my husband and he loves it. It is super easy to start and the backpack is an easier to use than a hand held. December 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Plenty of Power and Easy to Use - Fantastic Was worried it was too small of an engine, but it is terrific - plenty of range and power and very easy to carry, adjust and handle the throttle. Don't buy a bigger one unless you are doing 30 acres in a day. As with my now 17 year old Combo (for weed eater, edger, massive hedge trimmer), it starts and just goes and goes. Incredible quality as always. December 1, 2013
