    excellent power and control of air streams
    I purchased in 2014 a BG 86C-E model handheld blower. Best blower I ever owned. Easy to use, plenty of power and dependable. The three things a homeowner looks for in any type of power tools. . It funnels more air into a smaller size that moves mountain of leaves with ease. You can easily control the edges where the blower air stream is distinct unlike other blowers. Not only is this blower well worth the price but is the most efficient. It is amazing how much work it is capable of doing. Never ... read more own anything but Stihl products.

    Just one of many Stihl products I own. It is the ONLY brand I buy!
    The blower is one of many Stihl products I own and operate. As an owner of rental properties, all my power tools get used, and I mean USED. The first was a MS-36 chainsaw purchased 25 years ago. It is still going strong. With reasonable maintenance and proper fuel mixture, I have never had a machine breakdown or failure to operate. WHY would I buy any other brand? When you are on the job your time is money!

    Nice step up from my 13 year old Stihl blower
    13 years ago I bought the entry level blower and it served me well with zero problems. Purchased this BG 86 C-E and it is a joy to use....quieter, less vibration, very good air flow, love the throttle lock and finally, it starts so easily...fast idles during warm-up and is ready to go in about 20 seconds or so....NICE. All accomplished with the 3 position rotary knob. I REALLY like this blower. :)

    Pushing Leaves
    Working almost 3 acres of mixed woodland. Bought this today and 5 tanks of gas later I can say I put a major dent in the leaves and pine needles. Almost bought an echo which are cheaper but Stihl has always delivered on their other products. I have a few. Wish we could burn these leaves like we did as kids.

    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)

    To date, their best professional blower
    I own a BR 550, BR 600 Magnum, and now the BR 450 C-EF -- without a doubt this is Stihl's best blower to date (Oct 2015). I think the Stihl engineers have underrated the CFM, as I can attest that it is virtually equal to the 600 Magnum (and possibly greater). Also, the way that the air is delivered is better, it seems to have more "punch" when you throttle up (compared to the 600). Electric start is a fantastic feature, even on cold mornings, it fires right up. Also, the larger fuel tank is a ... read more benefit over previous models..

    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.

    Great design for the urban leaf blower.
    Excactly what was needed in a noise conscience environment. Stihl enough power to lift wet leaves of the sidewalks. If I was to use it everyday I would probably go for the BR600 but since it is only used sparingly this does the job I bought it for.

    Very Quite and Does the Job
    I Maintain Grounds equipment on a university campus and we recently purchased three BR 500 Blowers for our department. All three are working great and it is much nicer around campus with the reduced noise levels from these blowers. We have many trees and at any one time are running 7 to 8 leaf blowers during the Fall to keep up. The BR 500 Blowers move less air than other blowers that are available but they provide enough air to do the job and as stated above produce noticeably less noise.

    blowes a lot of leafs fast
    I wish I had bought this blower years a go. It is easy to use, not to heavy and blows leafs great. I am 69 years old and have had both knees replaced and I run 2 or 3 tanks of gas and take a break not because of my knees hurt, but when you get my age it takes a little time to get your wind back. My STHIL dealer here in Benton is great to deal with

    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.

    High powered machine built for work
    This blower is a true power house that will make short work of yard work. I appreciate the ability to save hours on jobs that used to take a lot of time and effort. The large fuel tank is definitely a plus in eliminating the need to stop in the middle of a project. When a person gets serious about their work and is tired of using the cheaper blowers, this is the one that will definitely provide a big step up.

    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 ... read more and maintenance are a breeze, making my job that much easier... I intend to turn to Stihl for future equipment purchases.

    Excellent Leaf Blower
    I have a one acre yard covered in mature oak trees. During our first Fall in the house I spent two full weekends raking leaves. After that I went and got the BR350. I can now get through my leaves in a single afternoon. It is an excellent leaf blower and works on wet leaves very well. One improvement I would strongly suggest is adding a chest strap feature to the shoulder straps similar to what you see on a lot of backpacks these days. This would help limit shoulder fatigue when you use the ... read more product for long periods of time.

    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.
