    Can't beat a stihl blower
    I bought a br600 magnum a couple years back and I haven't had a single problem with it. Most reliable blower on the market

    Awesome product
    Just bought this blower few hours ago and have only used it a total of 20 min. I'm blown away at just how strong this thing is. I own stihl weed trimmers and hedge trimmers due to running a small lawn service but only had a red max hand blower up to now. Was finishing a customers yard earlier today and while blowing off driveway and pool area the clipping got wet and it took forever to blow everything off. So guess this was a frustration buy but oh so glad I have it now

    One quality issue
    The leaf blower is great. It is quiet and has enough power, however the gutter attachment is very difficult to attach and even harder to remove. I have to use a lubricant to put the attachment on the blower. I may have to purchase a second blower tube and leave it permanently connected to the gutter attachment. This is a quality which has not been addressed.

    Great performer
    The BG 56 C-E delivers as advertised. Startup is a piece of cake and there is power aplenty for any home-based use. It is also quieter than I thought it would be, a plus. Only thing I could ding it for is the air intake makes it a pain to swap to your left hand because the suction is so powerful it tends to suck your pants in. A bottom intake might have been a better idea. Other than that though I'm usually done so fast it doesn't really matter.

    Great blower, would reccomend
    I've had the BG 56 C-E for about four years now. It is used moderately during the spring/summer at least one to two times weekly. I decided to spend a little more to buy the BG 56CE over the BG 55 for the easy start feature. I could not be happier, this was my first Stihl product that I bought new and too be honest, outside of draining the fuel over periods of non-use and the occasional tune up, I don't always treat it the best. I really baby my Stihl chainsaws as far as maintaining them, but I ... read more don't have to do that with this piece of equipment. I would recommend this blower and I think the east start feature was worth the extra 45 dollars

    I like the second handle to help when blowing leaves down long drive
    I really like this blower. It is very easy to start. I like the fact that it is lightweight and doesn't wear me out after a period of time. There is a "second" handle that can to used when you want to focus the blower on a larger pile of leaves

    Great product
    Just purchased this battery Stihl blower from JEFF of San Carlos Stihl dealership . Product is outstanding. After charging battery up to full capacity blew leaves out of garage and cleaned pool area in no time. Blower is very light and no effort to start like many of gas models are. Cleaned up my house outside area in no time and no gas to mix or pull starters. This blower has really made a believer of me. Great product Stihl, u really hit a home run on this one!

    This product is capable and very quiet.
    Bought the BGA 56 as a replacement for a disappointing lime green electric blower. I think this new Li-Ion battery Stihl BGA 56 blower is safer, quieter and more rugged. I am very happy so far after 1 month of every other day usage. I live in a heavily wooded area near a river that sometimes overflows its banks. We have a ton of mosquitoes lately and my bug zapper is clogging up almost nightly. I use my blower to clear out all those dead bugs. It does a perfect of it and it only takes a ... read more second. My previous green battery powered blower died after 1 year (battery stopped charging). It was cheap to buy, but I guess I got what paid for. Home depot refused to take give me my money back since it was after 90 days from purchase. My Stihl blower was relatively expensive, but I really get the feeling it is going to last a long time. Plus my new Stihl electric blower has a 2 YEAR warranty and if I have any problem, I can bring it back to the dealer I purchased it from (Buck Brother's, Libertyville, IL) and they will take care of it instead of me having to ship it off to a regional service center and hope I hear back from them.

    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 ... read more 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.

    Another great stihl product
    Purchased a br430 from Bairs in North Canton Ohio was unsure of what unit to buy and was upgrading from a old 55 hand blower the salesman who seemed to also be a stihl maintenance tech was super helpful and knowledgeable. I have had the chance to use the blower about 12 times and it works awesome has great power and really lifts everything up and off your lawn or concrete! Hope it last as long as my stihl saws, weed eater and my old blower.... Thanks Doug A

    Leaf Blower on Steroids
    The leaf blower makes cleanup of leaves so much easier than with a typical blower. The air velocity and power allow it to move more leaves faster than any normal blower I've used. The backpack padding helps keep the vibration to a minimum and the fatigue on your arms is minimal since you're only holding up a tube. It starts usually on the first or second pull and is the only blower I use anymore. I wasn't willing to put down the extra cash for a backpack blower for the last 10 years and now ... read more think how much time and effort I've wasted not having one. These are the only way to go.

    This is my second one of this exact model
    Starts quickly every time. Shredder is vulnerable to damage when vacuuming around small rocks, but is powerful. Works well when held in right hand, but is not intended to be used on left side of body as is sometimes necessary. I use it year round; even in the winter to blow light snowfalls from sidewalks. Wish it had the ability to extend the blower attachment even longer for some jobs. If this one wears out, I will buy another one just like it as a replacement.

    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.

    Not Bad
    Just bought this today and used it immediately. Once you get used to starting this, it will start with one pull. Took me several attempts to get the hand of things (read your manual). The shredded leaves are VERY small and desirable in consistancy. It did plug three times from ingesting a wine cork (burp) and some small twigs. It was powerful enough to lift some small river rocks. The blower is great. It took care of moving several years of leaves stuck under three cars (unlike my Weedeater ... read more GBI 30V - but hey - the Stihl has a larger engine) Overall rating: 4.5 stars

    Efficient gutter cleaning system
    I run my own small lawn and landscape business doing various jobs such as mowing, edging, weedeating, flowerbed cleanups, as well as other odds and ends for my customers. This year I decided to do fall gutter cleaning to allow my work flow to remain steady up until winter time. The Stihl gutter cleaning kit was very easy to assemble and operate. It is well worth the money as it takes out the hassle of having to move ladders around the home to reach the gutters. The gutter cleaning kit will pay ... read more for itself in no time and like all of my other Stihl products, it's top notch.

    A reserved recommendation
    Product works well, except the tubes are a little too thin. I had to take the kit back to the store after the bottom tube failed. I had cleaned the gutters for maybe 30 minutes before the tube buckled. Dealer replaced the failed tube and I was able to finish cleaning my gutters.

    Gutter kit is awesome!
    I just purchased the BG 86 blower and gutter kit. I was able to clean my gutters in less than 30 minutes. This is a job that use to take several hours when completed by climbing on a ladder. As far as the device coming apart, as reported in other reviews, I was able to prevent this with electrical tape. I would highly recommend this product!!
