    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!

    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!

    Excellent power, shoulder straps lacking
    I have several other Stihl power products but when my old backpack blower recently broke I replaced it with the BR600. The BR600 has excellent power, easy to start, and has cut my leaf blowing time considerably. My only complaint is the shoulder strap setup is very uncomfortable compared to my old blower. The shoulder straps are to thin and tend to twist and the padded sections are to narrow. I find myself spending too much time readjusting the straps while operating the unit.

    Easy to use
    Lightweight and very versatile for a lot more than just leaves. When we cut our downed limbs up on our driveway, we use our blower to clear off the shavings and really small twigs. Saves sweeping! Love it.

    Powerful and Light.
    I bought this for my mother who wanted something to blow out her garden. I bought this model solely because of its weight. I was surprised at how powerful it was for such a small/light machine. She couldn't be happier.

    I love this STIHL Blower!
    This is the best leaf blower I have ever owned! It is so light and easy to use and very quiet compared to most blowers.

    Good for small areas
    I bought this for a specific purpose - to get leaves out of small areas like garden beds and my deck, where blowing leaves isn't feasible. It works great for those areas but that's it, in my opinion. I can't speak to how it works as a blower, only as a vac. For that purpose, suction is good and shredding is helpful. The bag holds more than I expected but this is too slow and small to suck up all the leaves from my 1/2 acre (surrounded by trees) yard. For my deck, garden beds, etc. this is a very ... read more helpful tool in addition, not in place of, my backpack blower.

    Great machine
    I bought this blower/mulcher today. I was somewhat apprehensive after reading some of the reviews. I have a large property and need flexibility with the leaf problem. As a blower, I think it does an awesome job. As a vacuum, I think it works for my needs. I don't know what everyone expects, but yes you have to sit and suck all the leaves up at a slower rate than what you would hope for. We all just wish for the same vacuum power as blowing power. It does the job. I think it was a great purchase.

    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.

    It's great being cordless!
    I love not having to deal with an electrical cord. I am a small, older female, and needed a vac/blower that wasn't too heavy & started easily. This product accomplishes these requirements for me. I do have a little difficulty in pushing the tabs with a tool to change the tools! But can live with it. I think if you were stronger & had bigger hands this might not be an issue, just an annoyance. My husband likes using this product, except push tabs, too. Haven't had/used enough to know about the ... read more maintenance aspect.

    After six months
    Good concept, but has its limitations. I bought this as light duty blower and shredder for my landscaping business. It is six months old. First the cons. DO NOT buy the model with EZ recoil. After the guys stretched the internal spring 4 or 5 times, I coverted to the traditional recoil. Now it is durable! The other negative is the shredder has limitations. Not intended for big jobs or wet material, otherwise it works great. For the pros, light weight, agile, decent blower performance for a small ... read more package, great in small places, and reliable motor.

    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.

    the little blower that could
    We purchased this blower about a year ago to replace a older br 380 we had as a backup. We didn't want such a bulky blower so we opted for this one. We use it for our commercial gardening business. It has been used about 5 days a week since we've owned it and it still hasn't been in the shop once. It still has the original carburetor and spark plug. We had a hard time with the tube mounted throttle since we mostly used hip throttle blowers. It just takes practice. This blower is strong and light ... read more and very fuel efficient.

    Stihl BR 350 Leaf Blower
    The Stihl BR 350 is an excellent leaf blower. Solid build. Plenty of power. It's comfortable to wear for several hours at a time. It starts quickly. I have a heavily wooded property. And the BR 350 gets the job done. Dare I say that it's actually fun to run this leaf blower? Yes. Here's a highlight: the blower gets leaves and large Hickory nuts out of very thick weeds. It really is that powerful. This is with the full-length blower tube at the ground. One can take off sections of the blower ... read more tube for different applications. Pro Tip: make sure to use Stihl's MotoMix 50:1 fuel. If you are on the fence about which leaf blower to purchase, the BR 350 is an excellent choice.

    Great Blower
    This blower has great power to blow away almost anything on your lawn. It has the power that you have to pay a lot more at other manufacturers. The blower is comfortable to wear with it's great padding for your back. lastly the blower has great features that no other manufacture has, for example the choke sets to run when you throttle up the blower and the multi-function switch that lets you set a blowing speed and turn off the blower on one switch. I highly recommend the BR 350 backpack leaf blower.

    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.

    Very Quite and Does the Job
    I Maintain Grounds equipment on a university campus and we recently purchased three BR 500 Blowers for our department. All three are working great and it is much nicer around campus with the reduced noise levels from these blowers. We have many trees and at any one time are running 7 to 8 leaf blowers during the Fall to keep up. The BR 500 Blowers move less air than other blowers that are available but they provide enough air to do the job and as stated above produce noticeably less noise.

    This product blows stronger than any other brand.
    Had a choice between this BR 600 model, or the newer released model. I am totally satisfied with the operation and strength of this BR 600 model, the ease and weight, and the efficiency of air flow. The newer high end blower utilizes the CFMs better, I understand, but can't imagine an improvement over the BR 600!
