    Has some very cool features that make it stand out
    The BR 450CE-F stands out for its electric start feature, which is really great, and it also has a few other tricks up its sleeve. The adjustable tube length is convenient, easy, and you will find yourself using it more than you think. It should become a standard feature on pro backpacks. Same goes for the adjustable throttle. When running a pro crew, it adds easy operator comfort and takes zero time to do so. In the power department, I'm impressed. It doesn't seem any less powerful than my 600 ... read more magnum. By no means is this an intermediate blower - it is professional in its power and CFM. In the comfort department, I'm less impressed. This blower would benefit from the straps and backpad that comes with the 600 magnum. It also would benefit greatly from a hip belt. The power unit clunks against the frame when scouring leaves, and that can be a minor annoyance. It has a nice big gas tank, the anti vibration is sublime (the smoothest of any brand I've tried, and I've tried them all). Overall I can recommend this product, and I hope Stihl makes a few updates on the next generation to improve the comfort of this unit.

    Incredible product
    Had my fill of handhelds. This blower is the most powerful I've ever used - and it doesn't seem to matter if the leaves are dry or not. It initially seems a little heavy but once on with the straps adjusted, it is very comfortable. The tube being adjustable is great - and of course the electric start is awesome. Highly recommended.

    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.

    Senior Friendly
    I had reservations about this because of my age but after a few tips from an older guy working at dealers I had no problem. I am so glad I went with a larger model as it did everything I wanted. I live in the woods and had 3 feet of wet leaves piled under my deck but this blower took care of it so quick and not only blew them out but blew them far enough that there was no blowback. The weight doesn't bother me but twisting around to saddle up is difficult but guy at store said to just set it on ... read more picnic table etc. and back into it. Worked like a charm for older person. Every time I put it on in my memory I hear " Okay saddle up and move out".

    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.

    Best Blower for My needs that I could find.
    First I observed which brand the professionals use. Then I read all internet reviews I could find. Finally I visited a retailer and asked for a demonstration. Only after it passed all those tests did I purchase a BR 550. While it is not a full out professional model, nether am I. A rack to help mount the blower on my back would be nice but otherwise I am thrilled with this machine. I even volunteered to clear the next door widow woman's gutters and whatever. I love this machine. It starts, it ... read more runs well (still getting used to the non 2-cycle sound), and should the rest of my life.

    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.

    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.

    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

    I had a home owners Stihl blower model purchased several years ago. Felt it was time to upgrade. Wow does this blower save me time! Even used it to gather apples that had fallen on the ground around my huge crabapple tree. This blower lifts even the squashed rotten apples out of the grass... something even a rake could not do. Going top of the line is definitely worth it with my acre lot. My only regret is not upgrading sooner.

    Amazing Blower
    This thing is awesome - with over 35 mature oaks on a smaller property we get a lot of leaves. I have not touched a rake this year or last. Can clear my property in 30 minutes. Need to do it 5 or six times times each fall, saves me 30 hours or so of raking. What other secrets has STIHL been hiding from me?

    Awesome blower.
    Purchased a Br600 Magnum today at my local Stihl dealer. When I got home I fired it up and I was blow away how quiet it was at idle. Then I started to blow some leaves not to mention it had rained earlier today so they were wet. I ground some into the cement and the blower took it right off. I own other Stihl blowers for my landscaping company and by far this is the best one I own very comfortable to wear and use.

    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.

    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!

    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.
