    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...

    A purchase without regret
    I purchased my BR600 Magnum in Oct 2015. We have many oak, hickory, and maple trees. It moves the leaves quickly and efficiently, even when the leaves are wet and heavy. Acorns and hickory nuts are relocated too. A huge upgrade from my "light duty" backpack blower and much more effective than my neighbor's "professional" model 430 backpack blower. I can finish blowing my yard in about 1/2 to 2/3 the time it previously took. It is somewhat effective in moving light snow in southern TN as well! I ... read more only regret not spending the money and purchasing it sooner.

    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.

    The Perfect Backpack Blower?
    I've now had my BR350 blower for four years, and cannot recommend it more highly than I am. Having 16.5 acres and two very long driveways, I've used it weekly and on occasion, daily. It has never once failed to start or work. It works as perfectly today as it did the day I bought it. What else needs to be said? My Farm Boss chain saw first sold me on Stihl products, then this cemented it completely. So, when we've needed more outdoor power equipment, I never look at another brand. Next it was a ... read more pro string trimmer, etc. But this blower is nothing short of fantastic.

    A very versatile blower for the money!!!
    In the market for a new backpack blower look no further than the stihl BR 350. This blower has all the power you need plus some. This blower will blow grass clippings, dirt and leaves with no problem. This blower is very versatile and very powerful all in a great priced blower. This blower does not vibrate at all. Its weight is very well balanced and honestly, I forget it is on my back after using it for a while. I got a great deal on this blower at youngs true value for a great deal because I ... read more traded my old (other commercial brand) piece of junk for this bad boy. I would recommend this blower to any home owner or commercial landscaper like my self.

    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.

    Good backpack blower
    Bought this stihl br200 backpack blower to replace old handheld blower ( not a stihl). The stihl br 200 cranks very easily every time. It is light weight and comfortable to use. It is lacking in power a bit , however , it is plenty powerful to do the work around our property. Overall a very good backpack blower for the money. I have had this blower for a few months now and I have no regrets.

    Good Product w One Minor Glitch
    Nice little blower. I have a large yard. Makes clean up after mowing a snap. Haven't used for fall clean up yet so we'll see how the power is for tons of leafs. This thing is so easy to start. Wish STIHl would use similar starting system for chainsaws. One glitch is that the blower hose keeps wanting to pop off the back pack. I've tightened it down once. If it continues, I will take it into the shop for a look.

    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.

    Based on vac function only
    Used to vacuum yard full of sycamore leaves. Initially would have to constantly disassemble the bag and elbow assembly to unclog the elbow. Discovered on 2nd day of use that I needed to run at higher RPM to maintain a forceful airflow thru the elbow. Never clogged again. Looking forward to using the blower this spring/summer. One con, based on the elbow/bag assembly, the adjustment of the bag sling is critical to maintain an open airway into the bag. Being critical of a great tool, otherwise I ... read more give it 5 stars.

    Stihl Shredder Vac/Blower SH 86-C
    After deep investigation of blowers at this level, I chose this Stihl Shredder Vac/Blower SH 86-C and have used it for 2.5 years now. Hands down, it has performed excellent in all weather temperatures and conditions. I chose to spend the extra money for the SH model, which is the shredder Vac upgrade, not so much for the VAC option, but because the internal hardware in these models are upgraded to stainless steel parts and I have found that the heavy duty rating is authentic. After 2.5 years, I ... read more have only done very basic maintenance. But, I treat it like my lady: put 93 octane gas and add synthetic 50:1 oil only, clean it up after ever use and refill the tank after every use so condensation (water) does accumulate due to the ethanol in pump gas, then store it high. If you want heavy duty, extremely high quality, this product will last you for years. By the way, the shredder vac will eat leaves and twigs like butter and put them in the side bag. I would buy this again and recommend it highly!

    Light and easy to start and control!
    I have had "economy" equipment in the past. My dad was always a Stihl man so when we saw the line of Stihl power equipment and after struggling with one of the "economy" brands we bought the Stihl. We absolutely love it! It is light enough and easy enough to use that both of us love to use it. We purchased the gutter attachment and now no more climbing ladders to clean the gutters. What a versatile machine. It is easy to start and the trigger throttle control allows me to control the power and not make a mess.

    What I was looking for.
    I read the reviews before buying and was disappointed to read it was hard to switch between vacuum and blower, and that it struggled with sticks and other things. My experience was very different. I put a small punch in my pocket and had no trouble changing operational modes. I didn't experience any problems with sticks or anything else. I accidentally sucked up a piece of stout nylon rope and immediately shut down the machine. I expected to find it wrapped around the cutting blades, but they ... read more had shredded and spit it into the bag without a problem. I got right back to work.

    Good power
    I am very happy with this product. I have bought many stihl product in the past. I bought this strictly for the vacume part because I already have a stihl BR 600 Magnum blower. The vacume has good power if your not careful it will start sucking up mulch and may get jammed. It got jammed a few times, but I quickly got is up and running. If you did want to use the blower it is somewhat difficult to change over, I only use it as a vacume so I never need to change it over. Besides that it works ... read more great and the starting is almost effortless.

    Extremely easy assembly; two pieces make the nozzle & it's done!
    I bought this for my mother. She LOVES it!! It is very easy to carry, very quiet, but most importantly, very, very powerful! It truly gets the job done. I tried it also & found it easy to manipulate around the yard. It doesn't get hot around the handle. I have several other Stihl products & am glad I purchased this blower for her.

    Stihl product are awesome!
    I recently bought a stihl blower and love it. It works excellent on yard waste and fluffy snow. I bought a stihl because I bought stihl chainsaw and weed trimmer earlier this year because of availability and service. I will buy stihl in the furture.

    This product is perfect for us
    We needed a new blower after our 16 year-old, two-cycle gas blower bit the dust. I was intrigued by converting to electric so we wouldn't have to deal with mixing gas and oil as well as the noise and exhaust from a gas engine. On paper, the BGE 71 seemed to fit the bill. After seeing and using one at a local dealer, I was sold. I couldn't believe its power! Plus, it's lighter, quieter, and easier to handle than the gas-powered type. (Our lot is 90 by 130 feet, with about three or four large ... read more trees in the backyard.) The cord isn't an issue for us plus we benefit from not having to deal with another set of batteries and a charger! I see the BGE 71 meeting our needs exactly for some time to come.
