Rated 5 out of 5 by 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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Good blower, one drawback I was replacing an older Stihl blower that I let the hot muffler come loose and weld itself to the plastic housing.... This one has good power, is quieter, they kept the air intake on the right side away from clothing and the vibration dampening works like a charm. But, hot exhaust gasses come through the handle making it almost impossible to blow very long without a glove on your hand. That passageway from muffler to handle needs to be blocked by a redesign or a plug of insulation. August 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for ladies too! After my divorce my nephew lent me his old Stihl blower and bagger from his landscaping business. This was the blower that was not secured and fell off the truck and hit the pavement, but it still worked like a dream. I appreciated it because it had the bagger feature and was easy to start. Long story short. He moved the blower and bagger went with him and I went out the next weekend and purchased the same model with the bagging feature. Thank you for building such a dependable, easy to start durable piece of yard equipement. July 29, 2014

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dont waste your money this item worked wonderfully for 3 rounds of gutter cleaning. After that it went in the trash as it wouldnt start and I had no more money to spend on it. now stuck with a brand new bag of attachments to sell on ebay. I thought by buying NEW, rather than someone elses old junk, I would have a reliable unit. I am back to digging the leaves out of the gutter by hand. Keep your money. June 9, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for roof and gutters A homeowner bartered this blower to me to help pay for a roof leak. Its great for blowing off roofs. I can stand on the ridge cap and blow off the entire area. Many blowers are good for blowing out gutters, this one has enough power to do the job even when the debris is wet. I employ females as part of the clean up crew for a gutter cleaning company and I am happy that I no longer have to come down off the roof and start the blowers anymore. I watched a 10 year old girl start it, cold, with ease. The girls like that its powerful yet light. I like that it starts up every time and is not picky about fuel like some other brands. I have since bought another one and I am phasing out my Husqvarna equipment over to Stihl. June 4, 2014
