    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.

    Great power and very dependable
    Best money I've ever spent on a blower period.I will probably never have to buy another blower.

    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.

    the little blower that could
    We purchased this blower about a year ago to replace a older br 380 we had as a backup. We didn't want such a bulky blower so we opted for this one. We use it for our commercial gardening business. It has been used about 5 days a week since we've owned it and it still hasn't been in the shop once. It still has the original carburetor and spark plug. We had a hard time with the tube mounted throttle since we mostly used hip throttle blowers. It just takes practice. This blower is strong and light ... read more and very fuel efficient.

    Great Blower
    This blower has great power to blow away almost anything on your lawn. It has the power that you have to pay a lot more at other manufacturers. The blower is comfortable to wear with it's great padding for your back. lastly the blower has great features that no other manufacture has, for example the choke sets to run when you throttle up the blower and the multi-function switch that lets you set a blowing speed and turn off the blower on one switch. I highly recommend the BR 350 backpack leaf blower.

    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.

    This product is awesome
    I was a little hesitant at first to purchase this leaf blower because of the price but I am very happy with the over all performance. I bought my house a few months ago and I first bought a stihl weed wacker. When it was time to buy a leaf blower I went right back to the store to purchase again. The power is great and it is so nice not to have to worry if it will start. I definitely will continue to purchase all of my tools from Stihl.

    Awesome Leaf Blower!
    I've had a BG86 blower for 2 years now and love it. I've owned the cheap box hardware store blowers in the past and they've all broken too quickly. This STIHL BG86 is really reliable and very easy to start no more than 2 pulls every time! If you have a lot of leaves to deal with then this is THE blower for you. The features are handy including the throttle lock so the throttle trigger doesn't have to be constantly pulled. Do your self a favor and buy one!

    Stihl excellence as usual
    Superb machine. Starting, running, power, flexibility. Great anti vibe, quiet, powerful, lightweight. Excellent controls/auto choke design and cruise control. Could not ask for more. Highly recommended.

    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)

    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.

    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..

    Awesome power with the convenience of electric start!
    I love this blower! I'm totally sold on the electric start and I believe all blower manufacturers will be going to this as it is an upgrade long overdue in the industry. I am a home owner and I have a descent size property. I find myself using my blower for more than just blowing off the sidewalk. I use it to clean my gutters, hot tub, latticework, front and back porches, deck, garage and driveway. I would say that my blower is the power tool I reach for the most, so why not get the best I can ... read more get? This thing rocks and the electric start feature saves me time and work with the seemingly constant interruptions that come up when I am blowing. Usually the kids, wife, phone or just the need to rearrange deck furniture etc. pops up and I used to have to turn everything off and then take the blower off, set it on the ground and start it and then throw it on my back and keep going, or just keep it running while I did whatever I had to do. Not any more! Electric push button start to the rescue! Love it, get one . . .be happy and save fuel and time and your back while you're at it.

    Good, but a few issues early on.
    I have only had this machine about 4 - 6 weeks and have given it only light use so far. But it has been easy to start and operate. Air flow and velocity seem good and it really has not been as noisy as the electric blower I had before. I really like not having a cord to get out, drag around, and put up. I did have a problem while on my 3rd tank of fuel and took it for service. They replaced the carburetor within 2 days and it now seems OK.

    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!
