BR 200

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight, does what I need, and then some... I bought the BR 200 this fall for leaf cleanup duty. We get a LOT of leaves on our 1/2 acre lot, both from our mature trees and our neighbor's . My back is not the strongest and raking is out of the question. My primary considerations were power and the 12 lb. weight weight. I would have preferred the additional power of the BR 350, but my back didn't like the extra 10 lbs. when I tried one on at the dealer. It may have taken a little bit longer to clean up the leaves, but the BR 200 did what I needed and I am pleased with it. The 12 lb. weight is hardly noticeable. I climbed up a ladder and onto the roof with it on my back and quickly blew leaves out of the gutters. It didn't affect my balance at all and it really simplified this job. I think that 22 lb. BR 350 would have affected my balance to the point where climbing up a ladder with it on my back might not have been a good idea. Then came the use I did not consider when I bought it. The outside temperature is now in the mid-teens. When this happens the snow is light an fluffy and the snowblower just blows it up into your face. I had not winterized the BR 200 yet so I tried standing upwind and blowing off the driveway and the sidewalk with it. It worked great, cleared everything off much faster than shoveling, and did it with no effort. The lighter weight also was a big plus for walking in slippery conditions. Again, the weight didn't affect my balance and I could hardly notice it on my back. This use is strictly a bonus. I should add that it started just as easily at 15 degrees as it did at did when the temperatures were in the 60s - no difference at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BR 200 – Stihl - leave blower. To It May Concern:I have purchased number products from Stihl over the years. I have been very pleased with the performance from all of them. But this new, BR 200 – Stihl - leave blower is outstanding. Also, I am a Disabled Vietnam Veteran and have a difficult time walking and using my legs, arms and hands. Because, of the lightweight and fairly easy start system, I am able to use this blower with very little problem. The Stihl should offer veteran’s discount, they are a little pricey, but their products are worth it.Best regards,Gary MaznikRoaming Shores, Ohio

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Pleased Starts easy, runs well, uses very little gas, Does the job as desired,I have a full acre of land, lots of Fir trees and broad leaf trees, maple, walnut, cherry. The Broad leafs blow very easily, the fir needles are a lot tougher. I should have purchase a bigger blower because of the fir needles. This one works but more air power in my case would work better.All in all very pleased !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your blower "blew" my mind! I was debating about a back pack blower and decided to check out the BR200. I purchased it based on how it felt on my back -- very comfortable. I was extremely happy with it after I used it -- super easy -- super job! STIHL comes through again!
