    The best big handheld blower on the market
    I was seeking another stihl blower to replace my retired stihl sh85. I bought this one. The 4 point spring anti vibes make this blower very comfy to use this machine has plenty of power for big and small jobs this blower is very easy to start and use (mine starts in 4 pulls- I use 50:1 canned fuel ethnol free). I highly recommend this blower.

    Worth every penny!
    I have been holding out for a couple of years now to purchase a new leaf blower because I couldn't convince myself to spend the extra money on the STIHL and that's what I really wanted. I finally broke down and purchased the STIHL and my only regret is not purchasing it sooner! This is a high quality piece of equipment that will last a long time and it's made in the USA!!! Stop thinking about it and make the purchase, you won't regret it. From now on, I purchase nothing but STIHL!

    No other brand measures up to STIHL
    In past years, I always looked for the highest speed blower. That is, until the local STILHL dealer clued me in on what to look for in a good blower. Mainly the amount of air volume moved, not the speed. Bought my first one about 15 years ago and have stuck with the STIHL brand ever since. Am on my 4th blower now. The best starting engine I have ever owned.Thr easy start makes it much easier on my back, being 68 years old. After the success with the blower, I have since purchased your chainsaws ... read more (4 of them), string trimmer (3 of them), hedge trimmers an several hand tools. STIHL is the best, both in price, value, and dependability.

    Great Blower
    Just picked up the BR 430 blower. And I just have two words to describe this blower , ( Totally Awesome). My Yard has several tall trees of different varieties. There's nothing this blower can't blow. Small branches, twigs, acorns, leaves. I didn't realize just how much force this blower had when I first purchased it. I was able to blow all of the leaves , twigs, that were in the front of my yard to the back of the yard an then into the woods. And I have a pretty big yard that's close to 1 acre. ... read more Now I sit at home waiting for more leaves to fall so I can take the blower back out of my garage.

    The BR430 is the power I need
    I have a BG86 hand blower which has worked well, yet did not have the power to blow piles of leaves. The BR430 is new and has all the power I need. The BG86 starts easily. The BR 430 is trickier in that once the engine is started, you have to reach over and nudge the throttle lever. If not quick enough, the engine quits and has to be restarted with a few pulls. While relatively new in usage, the BR430 was a good choice.

    Another great stihl product
    Purchased a br430 from Bairs in North Canton Ohio was unsure of what unit to buy and was upgrading from a old 55 hand blower the salesman who seemed to also be a stihl maintenance tech was super helpful and knowledgeable. I have had the chance to use the blower about 12 times and it works awesome has great power and really lifts everything up and off your lawn or concrete! Hope it last as long as my stihl saws, weed eater and my old blower.... Thanks Doug A

    My crew and I are impressed
    I have been using the Br600 &Br550s since they came out, I recently made the switch to give this electric start blower a 'what the heck' shot on the trailer and we are very enthusiastic about it. We can't tell the slight decrease in CFM but it's in between the power of a BR550 and BR600. Overall, the differences are minimal and I think the electric start may prove to be worth it. It is slightly heavier (3 lbs.) but the gas tank is bigger. Give it a shot in the field or at your home, I think it ... read more will stand up to the abuse like any other Stihl product.

    This is a awesome blower.
    This 2 stroke blower is the most powerful blower I have used. I love the electric start, the 186 mph wind speeds, and the 642 cfm (cubic feet per minute). Im a short guy so I enjoy being able adjust the blower tube and the control handle to my liking.

    First, this is the best blower I have ever used.I have had echo, shindy, redmax etc. I also have the stihl br600 magnum, great blower also.the br450 cef has lower numbers on m.p.h and cfm, but you cannot tell a difference the electric start and tube make up the difference. Blows wet grass clippings, wet leaves and moves piles of dry leaves with ease. The end tube decreaser is great for moving wet material, remove that and moves piles and piles of dry leaves. Very comfortable, ... read more convenient and reliable. I WOULD RECCOMEND THIS BLOWER TO ANY PRO OR HOMEOWNER.

    BG 86
    I have used this blower for about 9 months now and I can say it is the best handheld blower I have ever used. It is light, comfortable and has plenty of power. The anti vibration is a very nice feature.

    I finally experienced what quality is
    I just bought this blower yesterday so I don't have a whole lot to share but just from the start and day that I spent using it, you can really tell the quality. This is also plenty good enough for the average user. I am sold on stihl for all future lawn an garden small engine devices!

    "I look forward to yard work because I get to use my backpack blower!"
    I love my backpack blower for leaves, garage cleaning and even during the winter for light snow removal from decks, porches and driveways. Starts right up and is light enough to not be cumbersome. I would like to say that I think you guys at Stihl could come up with some better designs for shoulder straps.

    Makes leaf cleanup easy
    I have had my BR550 for over 4 years. It has never let me down. I live in an area with lots of trees and this blower gets a major workout every year. I wouldnt use anything else after having it. The gas cap was a problem, but after the recall it works great. I changed the nozzle to a curved one that my stihl dealer had in stock and it made it even better.My neighbor is buying one after trying mine.

    This blower is a great professional grade piece of equipment that is simple to use.
    I am a professional landscaper and I purchased this blower for everyday use. I have used it 10 times and have gotten 70% or better time savings because of the power and efficiency. The BR550 is a great blower and I am very satisfied with it and every time it does.

    This is one sweet machine!
    Starts fast and easily as long as you start it as instructed in your manual. It has superb power and is comfortable to operate, as long as you keep your posture correct and don't slouch your shoulders. That being said, this blower is the best I've operated in my 30 yrs. experience and I've tried a few different brands over those years. Best of all it's MADE IN AMERICA! (always keep fresh gas or store as recommended in the owners manual, I always use a fuel preservative in all my equipment before ... read more storage with great results)
