    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!

    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.

    Does a great job
    I upgraded to a BR 600 after using (still using) a BR 400 for 20 years. I had contemplated looking at a Husqvarna 750 and it felt like I had a Volkswagen on my back and sounded like it had no muffler. Don't be afraid of the 4 mix. Is quiet and lots of power on wet or dry leaves. All my power tools are Stihl and it's nice to go back to the dealer you purchased it from instead of a major box store or online purchase. Starts with one pull and is quieter than most other back pack blowers.

    Expensive but worth it
    Great for leaves and light snow up to 4 or 5 inches. Has a summer/winter switch. No complaints but if I had to make one it does like gas.

    This blower does what I bought it to do.
    Not too heavy. One/two pull start; soft pull. Moves alot of leaves at half throttle. Doesn't push you around. Good value.

    Great vacuum for those tight places in your yard
    This thing does what it is designed to do. Great for vacuuming up leaves all over the yard. Instead of making a mess trying to blow leaves out of tight areas you can vacuum and be done. I only use the vac on dryer leaves so I haven't had any clogging problems. Great also for clean up after edging, mowing etc. Bag can get heavy as it fills but that just tells you its time to dump. Runs like a champ. So easy to start. Very happy with my purchase as I am with my Stihl chain saw.

    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.

    This thing is great
    I bought this blower vac this spring to clean up last leafs leaves. This machine will clog if you try to suck up too many wet leaves. So I had to scatter them with the blower configuration then after they had some time in the sun to dry this machine in the vacuum configuration easily sucked them all up. I have been very please with this machine. Sense the leave clean up it gets used once a week to clean off my patio and sidewalks. It so far has been very easy to start. I will update this review ... read more once the machine gets some age on it

    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

    Great blower
    I purchased this blower due too my br420c being stolen out of my garage. This is an excellent blower. It is very powerful and moves the grass clippings and leaves in my yard wonderfully. I truly believe Stihl makes the best small yard equipment in the world. Very easy to start. Read the directions and you won't have any trouble. I also have a fc95 edger that is easy to start and cuts through any sidewalk I trim. You can feel the quality built in the product. I am totally satisfied with my ... read more purchase and you will be also.

    High powered machine built for work
    This blower is a true power house that will make short work of yard work. I appreciate the ability to save hours on jobs that used to take a lot of time and effort. The large fuel tank is definitely a plus in eliminating the need to stop in the middle of a project. When a person gets serious about their work and is tired of using the cheaper blowers, this is the one that will definitely provide a big step up.

    Best attachment I have
    I have had one of these for 16 years now and wouldn't change it for anything. Makes cleaning the gutters a snap. I have no problem with wet leaves, I also have wider gutters and that might be the difference. I'm done in 10 minutes. The front of my house is almost 20 ft on a slop so using a ladder would be dangerous. I do agree with ALL the post that the tube is flimsy, mine wound bend almost straight back but a few dollars from Lowe's fixed the problem. I bought a piece 8 foot piece of aluminum ... read more angle and taped it to the hose about every 2 feet. Made a world of difference. The tube no longer bends plus I can also use the tube to blow the leaves from under my deck. Even with a few short comings, this still beats climbing a ladder.

    Works as advertised
    This thing keeps me off the roof. Recently cleaned out a wet, heavy, packed drop of leaves with little problem. Did wear a hat but if you watch the wind direction and the orientation that you're blowing you don't get hit by very much. I peeked and the gutters are CLEAN: no leaves, sticks or even shingle gravel. On a calm day some leaves wil settle on the roof to blown out again a different day. I haven't had any problem with the elbows coming off, but they occasionally hang up in the gutter and turn a bit.

    Great for those who hate roof tops.
    I haven't tried blowing leaves out of the gutters from the ground, but i have a roof with several different pitches on it. Using one 90 degree elbow and 3 extension pieces, i am able to get all my gutters without getting close to the edge. I don't care for roof tops and i don't like ladders, this allows me to clean the gutters and roof and stay far away from the edge. Definitely well worth the money.

    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.

    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! 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.

    Works great
    We have used this blower for our garages, patio (which is quite large), and drives. Blows rocks, debris, etc and I can do all of them on a single charge. I was tired of the others I had where I needed several batteries to complete the job and they did not have near the blower velocity that this one does. I actually bought it for my wife since she just can't seem to fire up the gas blower :) But, I still seem to be the one that uses it.
