    Very Quite and Does the Job
    I Maintain Grounds equipment on a university campus and we recently purchased three BR 500 Blowers for our department. All three are working great and it is much nicer around campus with the reduced noise levels from these blowers. We have many trees and at any one time are running 7 to 8 leaf blowers during the Fall to keep up. The BR 500 Blowers move less air than other blowers that are available but they provide enough air to do the job and as stated above produce noticeably less noise.

    Great design for the urban leaf blower.
    Excactly what was needed in a noise conscience environment. Stihl enough power to lift wet leaves of the sidewalks. If I was to use it everyday I would probably go for the BR600 but since it is only used sparingly this does the job I bought it for.

    Great power and very dependable
    Best money I've ever spent on a blower period.I will probably never have to buy another blower.

    Excellent Leaf Blower
    I got my blower about a month ago. I used to use a BG55 to do minor leaf blowing around my property. I decided to get the 600 from all of the positive reviews that it was receiving and a couple co-workers recommendation. I have a 4 acre yard behind that there about 5 miles of trails. This leaf blower has been able to blow leaves in places that I believe have never been blown before. If your debating about purchasing this blower do it. It will not let you down.

    Just like a ninja turtle
    This blower far surpasses ,echo,red max 8500. Use it once and you'll understand what i mean. It's ergonomically designed and fits your back like a turtle shell. Red max 8500 feels like you are carrying a 26 lb box on your back 'where as the stihl br600 is a pleasure to have on with minimal fatigue and effort even after 4-5 hours of continuous leaf blowing. It looks like the engineering department got it right on this backpack blower second to none. Don't hesitate buying this as it will be the ... read more best blower you ever purchased.

    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

    Incredible product
    Had my fill of handhelds. This blower is the most powerful I've ever used - and it doesn't seem to matter if the leaves are dry or not. It initially seems a little heavy but once on with the straps adjusted, it is very comfortable. The tube being adjustable is great - and of course the electric start is awesome. Highly recommended.

    My crew and I are impressed
    I have been using the Br600 &Br550s since they came out, I recently made the switch to give this electric start blower a 'what the heck' shot on the trailer and we are very enthusiastic about it. We can't tell the slight decrease in CFM but it's in between the power of a BR550 and BR600. Overall, the differences are minimal and I think the electric start may prove to be worth it. It is slightly heavier (3 lbs.) but the gas tank is bigger. Give it a shot in the field or at your home, I think it ... read more will stand up to the abuse like any other Stihl product.

    Awesome power with the convenience of electric start!
    I love this blower! I'm totally sold on the electric start and I believe all blower manufacturers will be going to this as it is an upgrade long overdue in the industry. I am a home owner and I have a descent size property. I find myself using my blower for more than just blowing off the sidewalk. I use it to clean my gutters, hot tub, latticework, front and back porches, deck, garage and driveway. I would say that my blower is the power tool I reach for the most, so why not get the best I can ... read more get? This thing rocks and the electric start feature saves me time and work with the seemingly constant interruptions that come up when I am blowing. Usually the kids, wife, phone or just the need to rearrange deck furniture etc. pops up and I used to have to turn everything off and then take the blower off, set it on the ground and start it and then throw it on my back and keep going, or just keep it running while I did whatever I had to do. Not any more! Electric push button start to the rescue! Love it, get one . . .be happy and save fuel and time and your back while you're at it.

    Very powerful about average for weight.
    Use for large yard/farm. Has enough power to remove dried in grass from zero turn mower or rake gravel from deep in sod. Very happy.

    Pushing Leaves
    Working almost 3 acres of mixed woodland. Bought this today and 5 tanks of gas later I can say I put a major dent in the leaves and pine needles. Almost bought an echo which are cheaper but Stihl has always delivered on their other products. I have a few. Wish we could burn these leaves like we did as kids.

    Easy to start

    There's a reason....
    There's a reason why Stihl products cost little more. It's because you get what you pay for. This blower falls into that category. From looks and design to performance, I'm glad a paid a few dollars more for a Stihl. The blower is powerful enough for the average homeowner and has a low db rating so it's not that loud. From the minute I brought this home, I had a blast (no pun intended) cleaning up all of the leaves....from heavy and wet Maple leaves to lighter and smaller Japanese maple this ... read more blower makes easy work of cleaning up.

    Stihl very good products
    I love this leaf blower. We have a lot of leaves to take care of, I used to rake them all. Now I just blow them into the woods, and this little machine does the trick very nicely. It starts very easily and keeps on running. I would say on an average I used this machine at least four hours a day for a couple weeks. Its light enough but has real power. I would deffinetly buy other Stihl products. The value for your money is excellent.

    This Product is awesome!
    I have had the BR350 for about a year and it hasn't let me down. It has a great dependable engine when used with the Stihl Moto mix. It delivers more than enough power for even big jobs such as farms and yard companies. I would recommend this blower because it is efficient top of the line and will offer you everything the BR600 will just at a much more affordable price.

    Great Blower
    I purchased this blower 3 years ago for fall leaf cleanup and general homeowner use. It gets used at least once a week for cleaning grass clipping from garage, driveway and street. One of the things I appreciate about the blower is that it starts very easily. When the engine is cold, I can always start the blower with three pulls. The blower idles well and has a lot of power for moving leaves and debris-even when wet. I've read other reviews about hard starting and rough running but honestly, ... read more I have had no such issues. I am very pleased with this blower and have had zero issues.

    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.

    Awesome Leaf Blower!
    I've had a BG86 blower for 2 years now and love it. I've owned the cheap box hardware store blowers in the past and they've all broken too quickly. This STIHL BG86 is really reliable and very easy to start no more than 2 pulls every time! If you have a lot of leaves to deal with then this is THE blower for you. The features are handy including the throttle lock so the throttle trigger doesn't have to be constantly pulled. Do your self a favor and buy one!
