Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Blower, Poor Customer Service I work with Stihl saws every day. I bought a blower because of my familiarity with their products. My plan was to then buy a saw for myself. The hardware store made me fill out paperwork to buy the blower so you think you’re buying a product that will last. The pull cord broke after 6 months. The hardware store said Stihl won’t warranty it. I spoke to a Stihl regional representative. He said he’d look into it, but then wouldn’t return my calls or emails. My work has probably 100 Stihl saws and assorted tools, but as a homeowner, I wouldn’t recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from East handling for a female This blower is easy to handle and has the amount of power that a woman can successfully manage without being worn out after finishing the job

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Blower The blower starts easy and is very easy to use. Power is good (could be a touch better) and handles most tasks with ease. I have yet to use on large areas of wet leaves (November is not far away).Only down side is no ability to lock the throttle on full power, you must keep your finger on the trigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tool I ever bought was this blower. Have had this for several years and I use it year round, for blowing out the garage floor, the garden shed, leaves off the deck and snow in the winter off the cars, driveway and walk. I can have a 3 car driveway and a long walk all the way around my garage in 10 minutes as long as there is only 1-2 inches of snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only thing missing is a throttle lock. Probably the best blower I have owned in 40+ years, but I do miss the throttle lock that has been on the other blowers.
