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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Blower for My needs that I could find. First I observed which brand the professionals use. Then I read all internet reviews I could find. Finally I visited a retailer and asked for a demonstration. Only after it passed all those tests did I purchase a BR 550. While it is not a full out professional model, nether am I. A rack to help mount the blower on my back would be nice but otherwise I am thrilled with this machine. I even volunteered to clear the next door widow woman's gutters and whatever. I love this machine. It starts, it runs well (still getting used to the non 2-cycle sound), and should the rest of my life. February 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by "I look forward to yard work because I get to use my backpack blower!" I love my backpack blower for leaves, garage cleaning and even during the winter for light snow removal from decks, porches and driveways. Starts right up and is light enough to not be cumbersome. I would like to say that I think you guys at Stihl could come up with some better designs for shoulder straps. December 15, 2013
