Rated 4 out of 5 by Good power I am very happy with this product. I have bought many stihl product in the past. I bought this strictly for the vacume part because I already have a stihl BR 600 Magnum blower. The vacume has good power if your not careful it will start sucking up mulch and may get jammed. It got jammed a few times, but I quickly got is up and running. If you did want to use the blower it is somewhat difficult to change over, I only use it as a vacume so I never need to change it over. Besides that it works great and the starting is almost effortless. September 17, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product fits a homeowners needs I purchased this shredder because of large amount of leaves in my yard each year(tired of raking leaves) it has fit my needs. I would like it to have a larger collector bag but it is acceptable. July 2, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easy to start, light weight and easy to use. I like the Stihl blower vac that I recently bought. It does a great job mulching the maple tree seeds (helicopters) that we get so much of in the spring. It is light weight and easy enough to start that my 10 year old son can use it. July 1, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good prouduct A great blower! But when it comes to a vacuum mode you better have a screwdriver on hand. Constantly cleaning out the shredder after sucking up twigs that are a 1/2 inch which are common in my yard. Disassembly every 5 mins gets annoying! Starts and runs like a champ though. June 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by light weight and economical Starts easy and idles nicely. Easy enough for my wife to handle. I am anxious to try the vacuum portion to see if it is as proficient. Feel secure knowing my dealer is always right there to help with any problems. June 10, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by makes cleanup easy I bought this shredder vac per request of my clients since they didn't want me doing blower near their pool. We use it for commercial gardening. I went to they dealer and they pointed me to this machine and I am glad I took their advice. This vacuum makes cleanup in gravel much easier than raking. Instead of burying the leaves under rocks it cleans them up and shreds them enough to fill more trash in the trash cans. Then once all the bigger trash is picked up switch the attachments and blow it in to a pile and switch back vacuum and you're all done. I have never had to take it to the shop. It does get dusty so wear a mask. Due to the dust it also needs the air filter to be replaced frequently. But still highly recommended April 30, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great, but lacking one feature The blower is easy to start, relatively light, has great power, but lacks a feature. The old Stihl blower this replaced, and other current Stihl models, have a feature where you can lock the trigger in full power. This model lacks what would seem to be very easy to incorporate a means of locking the trigger at full power. Having to keep the finger manually depressed is annoying. February 12, 2015
