    A-1 on Reliability
    I have owned and used this blower for 4 years. I can attest to its reliability and excellent craftsmanship- my blower was submerged in salt water during the Hurricane Sandy storm. I figured I'd need to replace it, but sure enough, it's still hanging on. The engine doesn't sound smooth (there now is a shrill sound emanating from the engine) but it does still start. Good blower.

    This product has more good qualities than bad.
    I bought my leaf blower in mid-summer last year. As far as the motor and the motor components, everything works as it should. The only problem I have had is that the extension attachment keeps falling off during use. I have taken good care of this machine, as I do with all my machines, but it continues to fall off when the trigger is engaged. I have stored it in my garage and out of the the weather since the day of purchased. I have never dropped it or banged it up at all. Even though it hasn't ... read more failed me on starting or running one time, I am a little disappointed with the quality of the extension. Besides that , great tool to have!!

    Finally got a Stihl blower, been wanting one for years and I'm not surprised with its performance, power and weight. Easy to start, lighter than any blower i've ever used and all the power in the world to do the job. Orange for Life. Great job STIHL.

    Great investment, power, easy
    After borrowing blowers from family I decided to spend the money and buy my own. I own a Stihl chainsaw and never had any problems with it. I went to a local Stihl dealer ship where I bought my chainsaw and picked this blower up. They started it up right out of the box and gave it a test run. I went home and started using it. I was amazed how easy it was to start. It has good power for cleaning out gutters. I was also amazed how light the machine is. All in all it is a great machine for any home owner.

    This blower is very lightweight
    I have had this blower for four years and use it all 12 months of the year. Even today you can prime it, choke it, an guaranteed to start on the third pull every time. Just remember always use Stihl synthetic oil and I also recommend to always use a non-ethanol fuel with at least an 89 octane level. I have three other Stihl products and use the same fuel for all of them and have had them for problems. One more thing. When using Stihl products, always spend a couple more $$$ and use ... read more Stihl trimmer line, Stihl bar oil, and as I said earlier use Stihl synthetic fuel oil. Don't cut corners because it is not just a tool,it is an investment.

    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.

    This product is light, compact and easy to use.
    The Stihl BR200 back blower is a great one to have. The small but powerful engine blows leaves at a fast clip. At 12 lbs, it don't even feel like you are wearing the blower. The BR200 blower starts on the 2 or 3 pull! The Stihl BR200 blower is easy to store and easy to use. The fuel efficiency of the small blower will last at least 2 hrs before refilling. I would say this blower is top of the line. I would recommend this product to anyone.
