    Big blower with big performance
    We are in mid-Michigan, fourteen acres, with six acres of yard, with a mix of hardwoods and pines. The Stihl B600, used in combination with a diesel power mower with bagger, has made yard cleanup efficient and possible for a retired couple to handle. The blower is also used for outbuilding cleanup, equipment drying after washing; pretty much gets used every week. I run all small engines on non ethanol fuel with Stihl HP Ultra oil. This blower starts with one pull, and has zero problems in the ... read more past year. Purchased at Superior Saw, Holt, Michigan; an excellent sales and service operation.

    BR 600 is Awesome
    Even though the price of this blower may initially scare the average consumer away, this is an awesome unit. I've owned this unit now for over a year and when I use it weekly, my neighbors all stand there watching in awe. It simply blows like crazy and makes moving leaves, grass clippings, bark, dirt and debris an easy job in very little time. I've even used it to move light snow in the winter. It simply will remove spots from a leopard! Great unit and I certainly would buy again...

    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

    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.

    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!

    This products has useful features.
    Due to the season, I have not used the unit extensively, but the unit has performed well to this point. My initial use felt as though the unit was under powerd; however, after I purchased the flat nose tube, it seems to blow with more force. After the unit is converted to the vacuum, it suctions so well that the fairly small bag that cathes yard debris fills rather quickly. Aside from the above, this is a good product.

    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.

    Real power from a cordless
    I was very skeptical when I bought my first cordless piece of lawn equipment. It was the Stihl cordless chainsaw, and from the first limb I cut I was impressed. This tool is no different. The convenience of no cord, no fuel, no pull start cannot be stressed enough. I still have the gas version of both and use them when I know I will be at it for an extended period of time, but for a quick cleanup or quick trim this Stihl equipment cannot be beat if for no other reason than time saved, but there ... read more is no loss of quality on a job well done.

    Solid with great power
    This is a great cordless blower. A battery lasts about 25 minutes going full power. Blows leaves, twigs and crud with ease, like a good gas blower. Tool is very well balanced, so easy to handle when in use. Also nice lighter weight and decent noise level, well below that of a gas blower. I was not wild about the cost, but once I started using the tool the price became much less of an issue given the performance of the blower. It is worth the expense. Plus no more having to deal with gas and oil. ... read more The fast charger works great too. Will be buying more of the tools in the future.

    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!

    I would recommend this blower for the small home owner.
    My experience with the BG55 has been great. It always starts; prime once, choke on twice, choke off once and it's running, just half to milk it up to full throttle. However I need a blower with a little more turbulence, acorns and leaves move well but a good twig laughs at it. Overall it's a good machine

    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.

    Powerful & convenient. Pricey.
    This blower is plenty powerful for homeowner needs. The convenience of the battery power system makes it very easy to use. Setup and commence work quickly! ...no cords to manage. I have an extended driveway (300+ feet) that needs grass, tree limbs, and dropped acorns pushed away on a routine basis. The mobility of the battery pack is ideal for this. The cost of the battery, the battery bag and the blower is pricey.

    Replacing my gas blowers and plug in electric
    These are great for our maintenance crews that work small to medium properties. Our clients really appreciate the low noise and no exhaust. I feel the fuel and repair savings will pay for the units in under two years. I am switching to as many products in the line as possible. Initial cost of batteries and charger are distributed over each additional tool, the more the merrier.

    Fabulous and Powerful Yard Blower
    I didn't know how this would compare to the powerful gas blowers, but I got tired of the noise and the gas and the pull to start. In my opinion, this blower is more powerful than the gas line blowers! Including the gas backpack. Now the Gas backpack blowers are for pro's who don't have to worry about battery life and usually go for longer period of times than you would with the battery blowers. This BGA100 is designed for the semi pro or home owner. I haven't tested for battery life ... read more because you'd have to run a full power test along with and multi range power test, which I haven't done as I'm more interested in just using the blower. My guess is that on full power, you'd have maybe 10-15 minutes. That's with the big battery, which I bought. But here's the thing, you'd never need full power when you use this guy anyway. during normal usage, I'd guess you'd have about 30mins useage, but that's a guess. Of course with the big capacity battery. One thing though, I might have purchased the BGA85 simply due to the fact that you don't have to wear the battery belt & cord which is not as convenient. But the BGA100 has the power I want and need and I didn't know about the BGA85. And when you need the power, you need it! The Blower itself is light. It's a big thing though! Looks really intimidating when you actually see it in person!!

    Great Blower!!
    Bought a BG86 from the guys at James River Equipment in Chester. Fueled it up with the Stihl premix - purchased with the blower to extend the warranty. Followed the instructions, a couple of pulls and it started, as per the instructions! Blows really strong and cleaned my yard up in less than half the time it took my old blower! Pretty quiet for a two stroke motor and fuel efficient. You can notice the quality of the build compared to other cheaper blowers. I now look forward to mowing, grass ... read more trimming and cleaning up the mess with my Stihl blower! Happy days! Ps. The guys at James River Equipment are friendly and knowledgeable!

    Great handheld unit
    I've had the BG86 for about three years now. Its worked great and has never had to go to the shop for repairs. I've used synthetic Ace hardware brand oil in with no issues, sorry Stihl. It takes four or five good pulls to start her, same as when she was new. And she takes a minute or two to warm up before you can get full throttle, but the same can be said about me. So no demerits there. Other than that she works like a champ and has good power. We now live on a bigger property and will be ... read more upgrading to the BR600 backpack blower.

    This product is awesome
    I was a little hesitant at first to purchase this leaf blower because of the price but I am very happy with the over all performance. I bought my house a few months ago and I first bought a stihl weed wacker. When it was time to buy a leaf blower I went right back to the store to purchase again. The power is great and it is so nice not to have to worry if it will start. I definitely will continue to purchase all of my tools from Stihl.
