Rated 3 out of 5 by Great blower frustrating shredder I've had mine for years now and use it all the time. Not so much as a hiccup on the engine and starts every time. That being said forget the vacuum part of it. While it works pretty well, trying to convert it or take the funnel or bag on or off the unit is super frustrating. D minus to the engineers who designed that. You get one stick or blockage in vacuum mode and you spent 5 minutes trying to get the chute or the bag off. Terrible design.As a blower I give it a solid A, as to the vaccum part D minus. The connections are so poorly designed they almost shouldn't have the option. November 24, 2015

Rated 4 out of 5 by blower/vac This is a powerful vac. Great for shredding leaves that I have piled on deck. I take the bag off with ease and empty on garden. November 6, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Broke second day Frustrating raking up leaves the day after buying one of these. Dealer made it clear that fixing it that day wasn't going to happen. Will have a hard time convincing the wife that it's worth paying extra for a brand name product when a cheap one from canadiantire would most likely have outlasted to 2 day life span of this one.

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
