    Very powerful
    Good ergonomics, very powerful. Starts very good. Can't stand small engines that are hard to start. If it does not start on the second pull its out of gas. I run only non ethanol fuel to reduce build up and for extended fuel life. I have a lot of trees. Oaks and hickory. This thing blows large piles of hickory nuts almost like leaves. Had it for a year now and it gets a real workout at my place. I replaced a smaller husqvarna with this thing when it got hard to start. It runs circles around any ... read more blower I have ever used

    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.

    Awesome product
    Just bought this blower few hours ago and have only used it a total of 20 min. I'm blown away at just how strong this thing is. I own stihl weed trimmers and hedge trimmers due to running a small lawn service but only had a red max hand blower up to now. Was finishing a customers yard earlier today and while blowing off driveway and pool area the clipping got wet and it took forever to blow everything off. So guess this was a frustration buy but oh so glad I have it now

    No Problems
    I read reviews about the straps sliding down, not having power when starting, and a few more problems. But, I purchased it from Ace Hardware, where it sputtered a bit when they started it for me, but after it warmed up for a minute, it ran fine. As for the straps, the man at Ace showed me that you need to put the blower on something about the height you would have it on your back. Put the straps on, and then have another person pull the straps from the bottom to cinch it up properly. In doing ... read more that, they don't slip for me, and it works fine. Very happy with the ease to use, reliability, and the weight for the power it has.

    blowes a lot of leafs fast
    I wish I had bought this blower years a go. It is easy to use, not to heavy and blows leafs great. I am 69 years old and have had both knees replaced and I run 2 or 3 tanks of gas and take a break not because of my knees hurt, but when you get my age it takes a little time to get your wind back. My STHIL dealer here in Benton is great to deal with

    One nice rig
    Easy to start, if you follow the directions in manual. It's powerful, moving large amounts of yard materials with ease, and it's easy to maneuver. If you have backpack experience, it's not hard at all to put on and adjust. Otherwise, I'm sure there's a slight learning curve for first timers. The fuel tank is a good size too. All and all a good rig.(of course it would be nice if they were a little less expensive, but it's a small price to pay for a MADE IN AMERICA product)

    The product is reliable.
    The product should have the auto run feature so the throttle tab does not need to be held down all of the time.

    I would recommend this blower for the small home owner.
    My experience with the BG55 has been great. It always starts; prime once, choke on twice, choke off once and it's running, just half to milk it up to full throttle. However I need a blower with a little more turbulence, acorns and leaves move well but a good twig laughs at it. Overall it's a good machine

    I am very satisfied with my Stihl product
    i have read reviews on hard starting and flooding problems with Stihl products. I had that problem with my first purchase and took it back to the dealer. He got it started and then took the time to show me what to do and what not to do. I love all three of the gas driven products I have and would not buy a different brand.

    This is one sweet machine!
    Starts fast and easily as long as you start it as instructed in your manual. It has superb power and is comfortable to operate, as long as you keep your posture correct and don't slouch your shoulders. That being said, this blower is the best I've operated in my 30 yrs. experience and I've tried a few different brands over those years. Best of all it's MADE IN AMERICA! (always keep fresh gas or store as recommended in the owners manual, I always use a fuel preservative in all my equipment before ... read more storage with great results)

    Without a doubt the most powerful blower I have used
    I bought this to help out with all the leaves and pinestraw I have to clean up every year. Best tool for the job without a doubt. Blew my entire yard and had a pile two feet high and this blower was still pushing the pile. I was also planning on dethatching my lawn. Well thats not necessary anymore this blower took care of that. If its not attched by the root its gone. Great investment if your tired of raking like I was.

    Best Blower I have Owned
    I have used blowers for the better part of 25 years - this is by far the best professional / homeowner blower I have ever used. The power is unmatched and the electric start is awesome!

    Love My Ghostbuster
    I have used it several times now ti use on my lawn as well as in my 4-car garage. It starts first time every time with one pull. My son has the professional model and it has more power, but mine works very well for me. I am very pleased with the overall performance so far and have no reservations on my purchase ! My wife calls it the "Ghostbuster" because when I use it, it looks like Bill Murray 's Ghostbuster backpack.

    BR 350 Excellent Choice
    For years I have only used bargain brand hand held blowers around my yard which usually gave me just a few years of service. I finally decided to spend a little extra and get me a backpack blower that would last. When making this decision I did a lot of research and kept coming back to the Stihl brand. After looking over the various models and options I came to the decision that the BR350 would be perfect for my needs. When I purchased this blower I felt like a kid on Christmas and couldn't wait ... read more to get home and try it out. Don't let the size fool you, this back pack blower has so much power and is perfect for around the house or whatever job you tackle. I haven't found anything in my yard it won't blow. Works excellent on leaves, pine straw and other debris. Thanks Stihl for manufacturing great dependable products.

    Great Blower
    This blower has great power to blow away almost anything on your lawn. It has the power that you have to pay a lot more at other manufacturers. The blower is comfortable to wear with it's great padding for your back. lastly the blower has great features that no other manufacture has, for example the choke sets to run when you throttle up the blower and the multi-function switch that lets you set a blowing speed and turn off the blower on one switch. I highly recommend the BR 350 backpack leaf blower.

    This product is awesome
    I was a little hesitant at first to purchase this leaf blower because of the price but I am very happy with the over all performance. I bought my house a few months ago and I first bought a stihl weed wacker. When it was time to buy a leaf blower I went right back to the store to purchase again. The power is great and it is so nice not to have to worry if it will start. I definitely will continue to purchase all of my tools from Stihl.

    Love it. no regrets on purchase.
    got the BG 86 just at the beginning of leaf season. this year they all seamed to dump at once. I have an acre and half of wooded property. This blower took care of my needs. I was wanting a back pack blower due to the size of area and volume of leaves, but wanted handheld for the rest of the year. I decided on this handheld and was very pleased with the performance and the volume of air this thing puts out. it even moved the wet leaves. highly recommend if your looking for a handheld. I have had ... read more no problems with it starting. Look forward to many things I will find uses for this powerful blower

    Great handheld unit
    I've had the BG86 for about three years now. Its worked great and has never had to go to the shop for repairs. I've used synthetic Ace hardware brand oil in with no issues, sorry Stihl. It takes four or five good pulls to start her, same as when she was new. And she takes a minute or two to warm up before you can get full throttle, but the same can be said about me. So no demerits there. Other than that she works like a champ and has good power. We now live on a bigger property and will be ... read more upgrading to the BR600 backpack blower.
