Rated 3 out of 5 by Not as Much Wind Power as the ECHO PB 770 Good power but not as much as ECHO PB 770 and the ECHO PB 770 has a higher cfm than even the stihl br 600 (which the br 600 is the big daddy of all the stihl backpack blowers)...the ECHO PB 770 has a back pad cooling system which the cooling system may reduce the wind power of the ECHO PB 770 just slightly but still the big ECHO PB 770 has as much if not more wind power than the stihl br 600 even with thaat back pad October 5, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by When it runs its great, but fuels system stinks I have bought two of these. Despite regular maintenance, the first one died after 4 years. I bought another one and the 2nd one is two months old & does not run. Service always takes 3-4 weeks June 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nearly Perfect!!! Love this machine, and it's quite capable. The only surprise to me was how unnatural the functional length and angle of the trigger seemed to me. It was preassembled, and I'm wondering if there are some simple adjustments I can make to make to it more ergonomically friendly for me in order to mitigate bad mechanics and fatigue. Thanks very much!!!! April 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 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". April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has the power to do the job. We are able to clean all paved areas, beds, and remove the leaves from the shrubs using the BR 550 April 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This blower is a great professional grade piece of equipment that is simple to use. I am a professional landscaper and I purchased this blower for everyday use. I have used it 10 times and have gotten 70% or better time savings because of the power and efficiency. The BR550 is a great blower and I am very satisfied with it and every time it does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fuel efficiency + power = Job Completion Is s quick-starting powerful machine. Great this winter for blowing/clearing snow and walks. Feeds leaf shredders as fast as they can handle. Machine is perfectly balanced, but torquey, so needs to be secure to operator.Easy for operators to start, even with minimal training or experience. Great starting even in 10 degree conditions. Will not overheat in summer with hours-long gas-and-go continuous use. March 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buy It If You Need POWER I have had this backpack blower for a few years and if you need to move HUGE piles of wet leaves or some snow then this one is the ticket. When leaves are wet they are difficult to move around and get into piles but not with this blower! It is also great for clearing driveways and sidewalks of snow if it isn't too wet or deep. This beats a broom or shovel all to heck. February 22, 2014
