Rated 5 out of 5 This thing is amazing! The BR 600 was recommended to me by a friend (Kathy). I've never seen Kathy get very excited about much of anything, but when she described the BR 600 to my wife and me over lunch, she was excited, animated, and even provided sound effects. So, I had to get one. I needed a new blower anyway, as we live on 5 acres in the middle of about 75 acres of mostly oak and maple and our property is Grand Central Station for leaves in the Fall and again in Spring. In the past, we've always raked leaves with some (but not much) help from a series of electric blowers. We are a little older now and retired, so we need powered assistance.The BR 600 is just what the doctor ordered. It quickly dispatches leaves, even from the many hedges and flower gardens on our property. It even chases small sticks and twigs. Although it is heavier than a hand-held blower, it is far easier to use and it actually causes far less back pain than a hand-held because you aren't constantly bent into some unnatural position. The balance takes a few minutes to get used to, but after that, it's not a problem at all. The variable speed allows us to remove leaves from gardens while leaving the wood mulch largely in place. The hand controls and the "cruise control" are great.It isn't particularly loud, but it is still a good idea to use ear protection and of course, eye protection as well. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wish I would have purchased it sooner!!!! I have a BR420 that I have been using for years and I thought it was powerful, but the 600 will blow it away. I have been looking at buying the 600 for a few years but just kept talking myself out of it because I have a perfectly good 420, wish I had not listened to myself and bought it earlier. I purchased the 600 yesterday and it cut my cleanup time in half. Its a lot to put into a blower but if you have as much to clean as I do its worth it, as I have always said, you get what you pay for and the 600 is worth every penny. Now the hardest part is what am I going to do with my trusty 420. October 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by BR 600 Magnum This blower has all the power you will need to move large amounts of wet or dry leaves effortlessly, leaving the yard looking clean and well groomed.I was initially concerned about using a machine weighing over 21 pounds,but soon realized that the adjustable support vest allows for even weight distribution allowing for prolonged use without fatigue or back strain. As with all Stihl products the engine starts easily every time and the quality construction and design make this blower a good investment. October 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice product! Very powerful, very low vibration & comfortable. The velcro that holds the air tube up for storage is cheap & a much better job could have been done with that. Looks more like a "whoops we forgot about this when we designed it" Am currently in the middle of the leaf blowing season & it's been flawless. Overall I'm very happy with the BR600 Magnum October 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Couldn't resist I tried for the last 3 years to kill my BR420 so that I could justified getting the BR 600 Magnum. . Well after countless hours of use on the BR 420 it just kept running and running whereas I gave up, had it serviced and gave it to my younger brother to introduce him to the Stihl family of high quality and dependable products. I then headed directly to the Stihl dealership and purchased my BR 600. Soon I forgot (sad to say) all about the old work horse BR420 and now I am enjoying the ease of use and power of the Magnum. Not only does it conquer all my lawn needs ( and neighbors also) it fits right in with my other Stihl products. A very sweet machine and maybe a little over kill for my needs but definitely does what it says it will do. October 14, 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by I love my BR 600 Magnum! Super powerful and HUGE time saver. Have had my BR 600 Magnum for almost three years now and love it. My home is surrounded on four sides by forest and in the past raking the leaves was a dreaded fall task. We usually had to rake a minimum of two or three times to keep the accumulated leaved from killing our grass. The BR 600 has turned that task into almost fun, and certainly a task not to be dreaded.This blower is so powerful that it even sends walnuts and hickory nuts flying. I've even blown mice and chipmunks out of their holes and sent them flying through the air! Even when the leaves are piled up high and thick, this blower will move them easily. When raking, I used to have to drag the leaves in a tarp, way down into the woods to dump them so that they wouldn't blow back into the yard. Now I just blow them where I want them to go, even down through the woods. It used to take two of us working most of the day to rake and haul our leaves. Now, I do it by myself and it only takes a couple of hours. The BR 600 Magnum will save you a HUGE amount of time compared to raking.Another thing I really like about this blower is that it's very fuel efficient. I've never run it out of fuel before I finished a job. This year, I've started maintaining the grounds of our Church and Vicarage. I use the BR 600 Magnum to blow grass clippings off the sidewalks, curbs, steps and patios after mowing, and it's much quicker and more effective than sweeping.I really like the backpack blower as opposed to the hand held blowers I've owned because it's MUCH more powerful and LOTS more comfortable to operate. I had shoulder surgery a few years ago and can no longer operate a hand held blower for more than a few minutes at a time. October 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is the best I always prefer Stihl. They are products made for demanding work. It is easy to use and make you enjoy the work. The warranty and service are reliable. In the case of this blower is the best. Makes very quick work. As fuel is economical. It does so much noise. I feel very comfortable with him. For these reasons and many more always recommend Stihl.
