Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Blower I just purchased this blower yesterday, 11 April 2016 and have already used it to "sweep" my 1/4 mile driveway and around the house. It is a fantastic blower with plenty of power for what I intend to use it for in and around my 10 acres. It replaced a not so old hand held from another manufacturer that was very unreliable.The back padding is comfortable and the shoulder straps are wide and fit me nicely. I am 6'2" and 240 lbs for comparison. The blower feels light and easy to wear/use for extended periods of time. I am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend this machine to anyone looking to upgrade to a backpack style blower. April 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by clearly designed for pro use -- but I like it around my house anyway! Dealer demo'd the blower on a cold late winter day. We lifted ice off his pavement and I was sold. It is now early spring in Wt Mountains of NH and we have no snow, so I decided to clean up the yard. This machine is amazing. I accomplished more in an hour than my last blower could do in half a day. It literally raked my lawn, if you will, via digging out embedded stones, and much ground-in debris, from my grass. It lifted wet leaves and dried out soaked grass remaining beneath. I was impressed with the comfort of the pack and the control. It has aways started (used 3 times in two weeks) on nearly first pull. I trust my dealer very much (P&S Equipment Littleton NH) and they have taken care of me via great advice and service. April 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. Now I sit at home waiting for more leaves to fall so I can take the blower back out of my garage. November 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by I love it but wish the gas tank cover went back on easier. I love it but I can never get the gas tank cover back on. It's a terrible design. November 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by One nice rig Easy to start, if you follow the directions in manual. It's powerful, moving large amounts of yard materials with ease, and it's easy to maneuver. If you have backpack experience, it's not hard at all to put on and adjust. Otherwise, I'm sure there's a slight learning curve for first timers. The fuel tank is a good size too. All and all a good rig.(of course it would be nice if they were a little less expensive, but it's a small price to pay for a MADE IN AMERICA product) October 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 October 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great blower I purchased this blower due too my br420c being stolen out of my garage. This is an excellent blower. It is very powerful and moves the grass clippings and leaves in my yard wonderfully. I truly believe Stihl makes the best small yard equipment in the world. Very easy to start. Read the directions and you won't have any trouble. I also have a fc95 edger that is easy to start and cuts through any sidewalk I trim. You can feel the quality built in the product. I am totally satisfied with my purchase and you will be also. August 1, 2015
