    Excellent Product
    I 've had my BR600 approx. 7+ yrs now & it's never failed to perform me. I recommend this highly. I bought it at Power House Warner Robins Ga. Raymond & the power house staff has always treated me good. I recommend the Sthil products over any other brand from my past experiences with other brands. The BR600 makes seasonal yard work simpler & easier for cleaning up the landscape.

    Grounds keeper review: read this buy this
    I use a blower daily at work in a university setting. We use Echo 755's mainly (both top echo models) a good machine no doubt. I use my Br600 at home and side jobs. I wish I could use it at work!! It is lighter, quieter, more fuel efficient, not smokey, waaay more torque/power/pricise throttle response....any ONE of these reasons would be enough to change blowers! This is simply a fantastic machine. I put a hour meter on it to see how long it lasts. No ethanol fuel!

    Good Blower, but could use some User Improvements
    Good Blower with good power, however it could be much better if Sthil made improvements to make it easier to put on to hold the straps together so they do not slide off your shoulders. I use a Carabiner Clip to hold straps together, once on. Also, once on, and the blower shuts off, you have to remove to start again. Stihl should modify the blower so it can be started while wearing it. Stihl should consider these updates...why have a good blower, when they could have an outstanding blower!

    Handy and easy to use
    I use backpack Stihl model at forestry/campground of Department of Natural Resources job for large areas. I purchased this unit for 1 acre hobby farm lawn cleanup after experience at work. Unit works well, moving heavy, deep, and wet leaves without fatigue due to lightness of unit. Sometimes work lasting 3 to 4 hours without a problem. This is Stihl's lowest price blower and everything you could ask for, get Stihl and don't go for the cheaper brands, the only thing they are good for is dumpster ... read more filling after a couple of years of marginal service.

    Great blowing capacity, Leightweight.
    It is always a pleasure to start this product. It starts the first time after the few priming pulls with the choke on. The BG50 has more than adequate power to blow leaves, sand, and other debris from 500 feet of driveway and sidewalks. It's lightweight, with minimal vibration, so using it for 30 minutes or so is not tiring!

    Excellent product and value
    I looked at most gas blowers available. This blower, to me, was the best value. The primary factors in selecting this blower we're Stihl's reputation as quality products; weight of the blower; and price. It was nice to go to a local reseller (Ace) and they handed me an assembled blower, showed my wife and I how to start it and verified it ran well before we left. It is light weight compared to other brands. Sometimes as much as 2 pounds lighter. It has plenty of power for home owner use. The ... read more trigger for variable power is great. The blower is easy to start and has a very easy to pull starter rope. I love this blower.

    This blower does what I bought it to do.
    Not too heavy. One/two pull start; soft pull. Moves alot of leaves at half throttle. Doesn't push you around. Good value.

    Buy and you will be a happy costumer. Also be sure the wear eye and ear protection.
    Just like all of the STIHL's line of products this blower, (BR 700X) has more than enough power to get the bigger jobs done quicker. If you've been waiting to purchase a backpack blower like the BR 700 or the BR 700X is for sure the right tool for the bigger jobs. I would like to see a auto start feature for th BR 700 line in the future. If you are going to purchase you will pay a little more for the power but it's American made, I payed more just for that reason alone. Well not really but with ... read more STIHL you know you can have peice of mind. Just remember to winterize you blower so she's ready to go when you need. At this point I don't know how STIHL can better ther backpack blower.... maybe a built in alarm. That would help deter theft. Or personalized engraving...oh yea. NOTE: always wear eye and ear protection. Be sure your ear protection is suitable for the noise level of the tool your useing. All I n all when you buy this blower and you won't be disappointed in the least. Thank you STIHL. Your #1 in my book. Signed, one happy costumer.

    Good Blower, mediocre vaccuum
    It blows leaves well, but the vacuum side leaves much to be desired. If you have smaller light weight leaves, it should do fine, but if you have thicker larger leaves like red oak, it tends to bridge at the opening and leaf collecting becomes a slow process. If your leaves are wet, that complicates matters even further. I ended up buying a used troy built chipper/shredder to handle the leaf shredding. Bottom line, it's a good blower, but don't buy it expecting it to wow you with it's vacuum capabilities.

    Really does a number on Leaves.
    Bought it because I already had a leaf shedder, electric and wanted a gas shredder, just use the Vac, because I have 2 blowers already, and it make short work and shreds well so you don't use as many leaf bags.

    Great power but small bag
    The tubes are difficult to put on and remove but not a huge problem after you get the hang of it. Power is the best I've seen in a gas blower/vac. The most frustrating thing is the coming up to a yard full of leaves with a vac that has such a small bag. There should be an optional accessory that has either a MUCH larger bag or attachment to a large garbage can. The bag is also hard to empty. The zipper should come around the corner and up the side a ways.

    Great vacuum for those tight places in your yard
    This thing does what it is designed to do. Great for vacuuming up leaves all over the yard. Instead of making a mess trying to blow leaves out of tight areas you can vacuum and be done. I only use the vac on dryer leaves so I haven't had any clogging problems. Great also for clean up after edging, mowing etc. Bag can get heavy as it fills but that just tells you its time to dump. Runs like a champ. So easy to start. Very happy with my purchase as I am with my Stihl chain saw.

    This thing is great
    I bought this blower vac this spring to clean up last leafs leaves. This machine will clog if you try to suck up too many wet leaves. So I had to scatter them with the blower configuration then after they had some time in the sun to dry this machine in the vacuum configuration easily sucked them all up. I have been very please with this machine. Sense the leave clean up it gets used once a week to clean off my patio and sidewalks. It so far has been very easy to start. I will update this review ... read more once the machine gets some age on it

    Very versatile machine
    After reading some reviews concerning decoupling of the tubes, I was somewhat leery of buying this machine. Using a T15 Torx makes releasing the locking nut simple and easy. The throttle has great response to allow me to suction leaves off of #57 limestone in my window wells and near the foundation. The machine is lightweight and easy to handle. I've only used the machine twice, once as a vacumm, and once as a blower, but I have no resrvations concerning long-term use since I own several other ... read more Stihl machines including a 25 year old chainsaw.

    Very helpful
    i saw this kit before and kinda wanted it so i bought. it toke a little time for convert it over to my blower but it was not bad after all. i just used it today and it just rained last night and this tool was handling the wet leaves like they were dry was very happy it nice for spouts were a rake cant get to and really works the best if the leaves are loose and one pavement.

    Worth a try. Saved me lots of time.
    Yard was full of leaves, & thick. After filling one bag in a short time, I used the vacuum without the bag. Threw the mulch out to the side & down. It's dirty, wear a mask. But it's saves emptying the bag every 2 mins. or so on the really heavy areas. Then used the mower to pick up the rest. Reduces the mulch by a great amount, and puts the rest in the lawn.

    Excellent tool!
    This vacuum is an awesome tool. We use it a lot to clean up plant trimming, weeds, leaves, etc. in our greenhouses. It puts almost anything it can pick up right through. Highly recommended!
