    excellent for the average home
    You can't beat the power of a gas engine! I had a battery blower prior to this and it was just ok. This Stihl 56 is great. Light enough to carry and more power. The very best thing is the eave trough cleaning attachment.In a few minutes I can walk around my home and clear every gutter and downspout without a ladder. Time saving and significantly safer.

    I am very satisfied with my Stihl product
    i have read reviews on hard starting and flooding problems with Stihl products. I had that problem with my first purchase and took it back to the dealer. He got it started and then took the time to show me what to do and what not to do. I love all three of the gas driven products I have and would not buy a different brand.

    Treat yourself!
    Ok, I normally bought power equipment by price point first. After being in the lawn business and in maintanence I guarantee this...if you want durability, dependability and efficiency you need to try Stihl! It is by far those most well designed equipment around. Give yourself a great gift!

    Awesome
    I've had one of the lighter Stihl blowers for a while but its not up the heavier mid-fall to end of fall season, heavy leaves, piles of leaves, wet leaves and so on. I've had an alternate brand for a while backpack variety, and it did ok but was a bit erratic, the carb needed tricky adjustment every season. Last week I splurged on this 350 model (with extended warranty when I bought some pre-mixed Stihl fuel). Its fantastic - night and day compared to its cheaper cousin (distant). I agree the ... read more backpack padding and straps are a bit bare bones, but theres actually two screw holes in the back of the machine, so I might add some padding myself. I'm delighted - I juts blew a load of wet leaves double quick minimal effort!

    Better than I had ever Expected!
    For a smaller backpack blower, the BR 350 packs a punch. I was able to leaf blow my 1 acre backyard that is fully surrounded with trees for the first time in under a hour! It's light weight, it's quiet, and so easy to use! I have a permanent shoulder injury and I can start the BR 350 every time without a problem! I never expected it to have the power and blowing force that it does, being a smaller backpack. Not to mention the best part. It has so much power I can blow even the heaviest of snow ... read more off my porch and my car with no problem!

    Excellent Blower
    I bought this blower to clear my new yard. I live in the woods and have about 3/4 acre of yard surrounded by oaks and maples and pines. This blower has surpassed my expectations. It has handled the carpet of leaves that lands in the yard and will blow a 10" high pile with no problem. It will run for an hour and a half on a tank of fuel. I highly recommend this blower. It's easy on the back too. I love it so much, I convinced my brother to buy one.

    Great two in one product
    Both blower side and vac side work great. Bag could be bigger, maybe a backpack style bag with a larger capacity. I have a large mature oak trees and works great in and around the flower beds. However, it does not like the acorns. I have a lot of Sthil products, two chain saws, a weed trimmer, and now the blower vac. Great long lasting products.one of my chain saws is 42 years old and still works great. I'd like to see Sthil make a good snow blower . I highly recommend this product.

    Replacing box store model
    Just bought it this fall, worked out nice for bagging leaves around shrubs and house. I have rocks in some areas and wood mulch in other areas. Worked great throttling it up and down to increase suction. Mulcher did a great job, leaves were chopped up so more fit in the bag. I like the heavy duty zipper and easy to unhook it from vacuum hose, pull back on the release and the strap and off it comes. I would agree on some of the other reviews, changing from vacuum to blower takes some effort, and ... read more a small screw driver. But after dealing with the box store brand the vacuum piece would always work its way off, this one does not do that.

    Lots of Parts
    Took a little getting use to changing out from blower to vacuum, which works pretty well. I've had it a couple months, getting more difficult to start, think I'll bring to Ace, got 3 years free repair. Gets a little heavy after using for a while, I don’t think my wife could handle it.

    Time saver
    This blower has tripled my productivity. After using this blower commercially I am amazed at the amount of time it has saved me. Features I like: Electric start Moveable throttle to your arm length The self contained blower tube is fantastic. Power is very sufficient. Cons: shoulder straps are bad for such a high dollar blower. It seems like they were an after thought. It gets uncomfortable during long periods of usage. The blower is thirsty, has a big tank for fuel but it can go through ... read more it rather quickly.

    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.

    Reliable Equipment
    Our Blower is the newest Stihl. Bought it for wet leaves, blowing off roofs, barn aisle and it even blew out the horses paddocks when I was in a hurry. Did a great job easy to use, easy to start and the backpack is so much easier to maneuver compared to the wand/pole version. Especially up on a roof.

    A great tool for a great price
    I have about an acre of yard and I need something to help with the cleanup and this blower is the best investment that I could make, it sure has been a work saver. I have found it to be efficient and easy to use and the weight is about right because I don't get to tired using it. I highly recommend this product to anyone who needs help and has a lot of leaves and debris.

    Great Blower
    I purchased this blower 3 years ago for fall leaf cleanup and general homeowner use. It gets used at least once a week for cleaning grass clipping from garage, driveway and street. One of the things I appreciate about the blower is that it starts very easily. When the engine is cold, I can always start the blower with three pulls. The blower idles well and has a lot of power for moving leaves and debris-even when wet. I've read other reviews about hard starting and rough running but honestly, ... read more I have had no such issues. I am very pleased with this blower and have had zero issues.

    It's a stihl !!!!
    I purchased the BG 86 this morning from the local Stihl dealer. He poured fuel into the tank and it started on the second pull. I got it home and it again started on the second pull. I used it for half an hour to move a lot of pine needles and leaves. It was comfortable to use, didn't kick to one side like my old Craftsman that was only 3 years old and stopped running. Hopefully this blower will continue to work as well as my Stihl chainsaw, grass trimmer and hedge trimmer have.

    Best blower ever. period.
    This blower pays for itself very quickly. Solid, easy and fast starting machine. Am able to blow leaves that have been rained on as if they were dry. Huge piles of leaves just blown into the woods, then I blow the forest floor clean just for fun and because I can! Big wet Aspen leaves to pine needles this blows 'em up and rolls the pile away with ease.

    what a great product!
    I have had this blower for a year now. I'm completely sold. I had a hard time turning loose of the money when I first bought it. I had a handheld blower for years, and when the leaves got so high I had to get out the rake to finish. Now you just go and blow.. It also starts so easy. I pull it once, it starts, that it. Wish I had bought this 10 years ago! You won't be sorry!

    Game changer
    With a very large property populated by innumerable oak trees, for years I struggled in the fall removing leaves. Finally I upgraded to the Stihl 600 BR. The difference was not only great, it was exponential! I was immediately able to move large piles without difficulty (both wet and dry) and get leaves out from previously awkward areas between shrubs and in densely ground-covered areas. Plus, the ergonomics and relative comfort of the machine made this all enjoyable! This is undoubtedly one of ... read more the finest tools I have ever owned and my only regret is not having punched a Stihl years ago!
