Rated 5 out of 5 by Great power, very easy to use. The combination of power, light weight and easy to start makes this one of the finest blowers I have used. September 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by More than I expected Rated it highest, but I've owned it for only about a month. I've used it several times with no problems. The power is is more than I expected. I though 25 pds, with fuel, on my back would be heavy, but it's not. Very comfortable harness and throttle handle. I'm daring the leafs to fall in my yard this year. Great product September 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by My first backpack blower Awesome! I was concerned about the power based on the outlet diameter and comparing it to what I see the professionals using. I was pleasantly surprised that this blower has more than enough power for what I need around the house and the vegetable garden. Rest assured that this blower can handle anything you need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Now we're blowin Bought 2 of these to replace a couple ancient BR 380 blowers I had and my guys couldn't be happier. They start on the first pull have comfortable straps and the are much more powerful. August 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Blower I just purchased this blower yesterday, 11 April 2016 and have already used it to "sweep" my 1/4 mile driveway and around the house. It is a fantastic blower with plenty of power for what I intend to use it for in and around my 10 acres. It replaced a not so old hand held from another manufacturer that was very unreliable.The back padding is comfortable and the shoulder straps are wide and fit me nicely. I am 6'2" and 240 lbs for comparison. The blower feels light and easy to wear/use for extended periods of time. I am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend this machine to anyone looking to upgrade to a backpack style blower. April 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by clearly designed for pro use -- but I like it around my house anyway! Dealer demo'd the blower on a cold late winter day. We lifted ice off his pavement and I was sold. It is now early spring in Wt Mountains of NH and we have no snow, so I decided to clean up the yard. This machine is amazing. I accomplished more in an hour than my last blower could do in half a day. It literally raked my lawn, if you will, via digging out embedded stones, and much ground-in debris, from my grass. It lifted wet leaves and dried out soaked grass remaining beneath. I was impressed with the comfort of the pack and the control. It has aways started (used 3 times in two weeks) on nearly first pull. I trust my dealer very much (P&S Equipment Littleton NH) and they have taken care of me via great advice and service. April 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Blower Just picked up the BR 430 blower. And I just have two words to describe this blower , ( Totally Awesome). My Yard has several tall trees of different varieties. There's nothing this blower can't blow. Small branches, twigs, acorns, leaves. I didn't realize just how much force this blower had when I first purchased it. I was able to blow all of the leaves , twigs, that were in the front of my yard to the back of the yard an then into the woods. And I have a pretty big yard that's close to 1 acre. Now I sit at home waiting for more leaves to fall so I can take the blower back out of my garage. November 15, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by I love it but wish the gas tank cover went back on easier. I love it but I can never get the gas tank cover back on. It's a terrible design. November 6, 2015
