Rated 5 out of 5 by Saves me time and effort. I live in the woods on 10 acres of maple, beech, oak, ash, and black cherry. Moving leaves in the fall is a major task, and very time consuming. I've used rakes with tarps, electric hand blowers, gas push blowers, and even the neighbors tractor and pull behind vacuum. I love the fall, but always dread the leaf cleanup job. My wife bought me the BR450 for my birthday to help me out. . I knew that the 600 Magnum existed; so with my wife's blessing, I returned the 450 before even using it, and upgraded to the 600 (in my world, big is good, bigger is better).This machine is exactly what I've needed. It clears dry leaves fast and easily - doesn't matter how big or deep the pile. It literally scours the lawn for twigs, acorns, wet leaves, and anything that isn't staked down. The lawn is about 1.5 acres in size, and I can move all the leaves, both front and backyards, in about 90 minutes. This used to take me, at best, 5 to 6 hours. The job includes blowing them out of house corners, flower beds, rock gardens, and under decks; and then 10 yards into the woods. I've even used it to clear eave troughs. By the way, it works well on cold snow (vs the heavy, wet stuff). I blew off my sidewalk and concrete pad in front of the garage that had 2-3 inches of new stuff - just make sure you're going with the wind!I've had no trouble starting the blower, 1 or 2 pulls and she takes off. The tank holds enough for me to almost finish the yard, that's at full throttle for about 75 minutes. The only change I would make to the machine is adding a cross strap across the chest area. I use a short rubber strap with hooks; it works just fine.Compared to all the other methods of clearing leaves, this is by far the best. If you're like me, there's always one tool that you'd hate to do without. This blower is it. November 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by New BR 600 problems? If you rated this product low or just purchased it and are having problems I think you should evaluate the fuel station that your filling it with I bought a new 600 at the end of this summer and use it about 5 to 6 hours a week. When I got it home I was just blown away by how great it worked then on the next tank full had to keep it from dying with throttle and when shut it off couldn't get restarted changed plug and same thing changed stations runs great November 22, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by WICKED PISSA BACKPACK BLOWER!! I'm usually not a review guy but people need to know how awesome this blower is. Very powerful and super light always starts right up and it sounds great too. An absolute must have if your buying a blower. November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Go big or go home..... I live on 20 acres of oak forest land, with a 20-degree slope on my driveway. Wet leaves and crushed acorns can make the driveway slick and treacherous. I had intended to buy a BR450, but my dealer had a BR600 in stock so I bought it instead. I'm so glad I got the larger blower, as this machine is incredible.It is able to peel off a 2-inch layer of soaked leaves from asphalt and scour off crushed acorns. Best of all, I could walk down the center of my 9-foot wide driveway and clear the entire drive, as well as pushing back leaves from either shoulder, to prevent them from blowing back onto the drive. When I was done, it looked like a snow plow had gone through! November 17, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor Performance I have had only problems with this blower. It went back for service within 25 days. Still lacks power, stalls and does not come up to speed.I have used 3 other 600BRs and they all work great-can't figure the issue with this one. November 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent I went into to my local Stihl dealer looking to buy a BR 350 after doing a lot of research. After talking to the sales rep I purchased the BR 600. This unit is lighter,and more powerful then the 350. Now that the leaves are down I can report that I was completely impressed with this unit. It cleaned away the 3" of oak leaves that had fallen on my 1 acre of cleared lot. I'm surrounded by woods on all sides and massive oak trees. I was able to clear the property in much less then half the time it took with a hand held machine. My next stop is a 30 car parking lot at my commercial property.Absolutely recommend the BR 600.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bought new on a Saturday and stalls repeatedly Hi, I just bought my first ever commercial Stihl product a BR600 Serial# 504219336 leaf blower for home use only on Saturday 11/14/2015. When I arrived home and using the brand new blower with the gas filled by the Stihl shop, it starting to bog down after approximately 20 to 30 minutes of initial use. The initial tank which was about 20 percent depleted was then refilled with the suggested mid level octane and Stihl fuel mix purchased from the dealership. So again it worked fine for about 20 minutes then began to lose power again then stalled. For a third time I refilled the tank and it lost power again after about 15 minutes which obviously was quite frustrating. On Monday 11/16/2015 I will surely be returning this BR600 leaf blower to be replaced or corrected as I am very dissatisfied with my new Stihl leaf blower. November 15, 2015
