    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.

    Great multi-function product
    I'm almost 70 years old. I have 4 large oaks in the yard. I could only use the vac mode for about an hour before I was worn out. I finally used bungie cords to attach the vac to an old flat cart and arranged the bag to hang from the handle. Now I don't carry the bag, I don't carry the vac, I just pull the cart and swing the pick-up tube through the leaves, empty the bag, keep it fueled-up and can work for at least 4 hours.

    Great productworks as advertised
    The vacuum tube works great! You must go slow with wet leaves or small twigs. I pick up 10 to 12 vacuum bags ever other day in high winds. No instructions, but look at the instructions you got with your blower it explains how it works. GO SLOW WITH WET LEAVES GRASSHOPPER. Do not exceed the vacuum capacity of the blower and you will have no problems.

    Great Product
    Bought this tool as an afterthought but couldn't be happier. My Stihl gas chainsaw died and needed replacement, got tired of mixing gas and oil and decided to go battery. But after buying charger and battery for chainsaw decided better off also getting blower (my plug in electric blower had also recently quit) since already had fixed cost in battery and charger. So guess which tool I use every few days? This blower is terrific, certainly quiet compared to electric and gas, and does great job ... read more clearing our long driveway and patio. Couldn't be happier with product. Chainsaw also great but not needed as much.

    I am now 100% battery dependent...I'll never go back!
    Talk about addicting...I started with the FSA 85 string trimmer and BGA 85 blower. I was so impressed that I next purchased the MSA 160 chain saw and finally the HSA 66 hedge trimmer. I was really craving a cordless pole trimmer, so I sent Stihl an e-mail requesting that they add it to their cordless line...and I guess they listened! I will be making another trip to my local dealer to add the HTA 85 to my Stihl cordless arsenal! Stihl tools are made for people that know that quality and ... read more longevity does not come cheap. I've always been well served by purchasing the best tools that I could afford.

    Nice Blower
    I bought in to the Stihl system for the trimmer, but I love the blower as well. It has nice power and is easy to handle. Sometimes I wish there was a slightly smaller nozzle to generate more speed (even at less volume) for some jobs, but it has plenty power for most jobs. The fact that I would like to be able to use it for some places where I would use my compressor tells you that it has a lot of power. Every other cordless blower I ever owned was good for little more than leaves.

    This is a great blower and I highly recommend it over a hand held
    This blower is very light (around 12lbs) very easy to start and has plenty of power (it will blow rocks from the driveway). The backpack is very comfortable and the vibration is minimal. The controls are well placed and easy to use. This unit is well balanced and there is virtually no fatigue from holding the control handle while blowing.

    Excellent investment!
    Great handling, lightweight, easy to start, and very efficient use of blower control - I could not be happier. All this and my warranty was doubled (to 4 yrs.) when I agreed to purchase/use their 2-cycle oil mixture, exclusively! I could not be happier with this product!

    Great home owner blower
    Is it a professional blower? No. Is it good for what it was designed for? Yes. It is light and efficient for home lawn maintenance. It is easy to move in and around bushes and trees. Much better than a hand held blower. Run time is 2 hours or more on one tank of gas, It moved a substantial amount of leafs with no back strain vibration numbness. Starts easily and never stalled. If you want a light easy to use back pack blower buy quality. Buy Stihl.

    Awesome Blower
    I wish I had bought a Stihl blower sooner. The power and reliability have cut my blowing leaves time in half.

    Why Did I Wait So Long To Buy It?
    First of, the dealer who I purchased it from, Freeman Creek Equipment was excellent. Friendly, knowledgeable, and gave me a demonstration of its features. The blower itself surpassed my expectations. I have a 1 acre property with mature oaks and maples. Needless to say, in the fall there are plenty of leaves. So much so that I am blowing them for several weeks. This blower has significantly cut down the time to do it. I like the ability to lock in various speeds.

    My crew and I are impressed
    I have been using the Br600 &Br550s since they came out, I recently made the switch to give this electric start blower a 'what the heck' shot on the trailer and we are very enthusiastic about it. We can't tell the slight decrease in CFM but it's in between the power of a BR550 and BR600. Overall, the differences are minimal and I think the electric start may prove to be worth it. It is slightly heavier (3 lbs.) but the gas tank is bigger. Give it a shot in the field or at your home, I think it ... read more will stand up to the abuse like any other Stihl product.

    AWESOME BLOWER FOR PRO'S OR HOMEOWNER!
    First, this is the best blower I have ever used.I have had echo, shindy, redmax etc. I also have the stihl br600 magnum, great blower also.the br450 cef has lower numbers on m.p.h and cfm, but you cannot tell a difference blowing.plus the electric start and tube make up the difference. Blows wet grass clippings, wet leaves and moves piles of dry leaves with ease. The end tube decreaser is great for moving wet material, remove that and moves piles and piles of dry leaves. Very comfortable, ... read more convenient and reliable. I WOULD RECCOMEND THIS BLOWER TO ANY PRO OR HOMEOWNER.

    Pushing Leaves
    Working almost 3 acres of mixed woodland. Bought this today and 5 tanks of gas later I can say I put a major dent in the leaves and pine needles. Almost bought an echo which are cheaper but Stihl has always delivered on their other products. I have a few. Wish we could burn these leaves like we did as kids.
