Blowers Frequently Asked Questions

    Very light but excellent power and was easy to start.
    Was using another name brand, the lightest I could find that had good power as medical issues limit my weight carry. At Ace, I was surprised to find that the Stihl was lighter even than my current (which is still one of the lightest around) but I was assured I would have more power. Got it home, started it up and the power was superb, while the weight plus their anti-vibration system made it a pleasure to use. No only was it lighter, but the much greater airflow let me finish in less than ... read more 1/2-1/3 the time, so I had to carry it far less. I'd heard about Stihl and now I know why people love them. Add me to the list.

    Game changer
    With a very large property populated by innumerable oak trees, for years I struggled in the fall removing leaves. Finally I upgraded to the Stihl 600 BR. The difference was not only great, it was exponential! I was immediately able to move large piles without difficulty (both wet and dry) and get leaves out from previously awkward areas between shrubs and in densely ground-covered areas. Plus, the ergonomics and relative comfort of the machine made this all enjoyable! This is undoubtedly one of ... read more the finest tools I have ever owned and my only regret is not having punched a Stihl years ago!

    BR600 backpack blower
    I recently bought a br600 backpack blower. It starts easy, runs great, plenty of power. The only complaints I have with is that the straps are to close together for me and I am not a big person, it is hard to get the second strap on because of this. I have the straps as loose as they can be. My second complaint is that this unit needs a third strap to hold the two straps together in front, they,(straps) keep working their way off my shoulders.

    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!

    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.

    A great tool for a great price
    I have about an acre of yard and I need something to help with the cleanup and this blower is the best investment that I could make, it sure has been a work saver. I have found it to be efficient and easy to use and the weight is about right because I don't get to tired using it. I highly recommend this product to anyone who needs help and has a lot of leaves and debris.

    So far so good
    Decided on the 450c than the br 600 because of the electric start.On a cold start you have to press the electric start three times to start. I have moved three acres of leaves chest deep .All the features are great.So far so good .Another great product from Stihl.The shoulder straps could use some improvement.

    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.

    Reliable Equipment
    Our Blower is the newest Stihl. Bought it for wet leaves, blowing off roofs, barn aisle and it even blew out the horses paddocks when I was in a hurry. Did a great job easy to use, easy to start and the backpack is so much easier to maneuver compared to the wand/pole version. Especially up on a roof.

    Great Blower
    Replaced my 30 year old blower for this back pack. And I love it, great power and easy to use. Need a third strap between the two shoulder straps, not a big deal but would be nice. Would recommend this to anyone. We have lots of trees and thus leaves and this is a great tool for our property.

    I've had one of the lighter Stihl blowers for a while but its not up the heavier mid-fall to end of fall season, heavy leaves, piles of leaves, wet leaves and so on. I've had an alternate brand for a while backpack variety, and it did ok but was a bit erratic, the carb needed tricky adjustment every season. Last week I splurged on this 350 model (with extended warranty when I bought some pre-mixed Stihl fuel). Its fantastic - night and day compared to its cheaper cousin (distant). I agree the ... read more backpack padding and straps are a bit bare bones, but theres actually two screw holes in the back of the machine, so I might add some padding myself. I'm delighted - I juts blew a load of wet leaves double quick minimal effort!

    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.

    Top Notch Time Saver!
    This product did an amazing job both with the vacuum and the blower. This saved me hours of time being able to switch quickly from blowing and vacuuming. It mulched the leaves and sticks, and aside from the occasional 1 inch piece getting stuck it ate the rest with no damage to the metal blades! Love this thing and will have the weed eater next season to match!!

    Good, but a few issues early on.
    I have only had this machine about 4 - 6 weeks and have given it only light use so far. But it has been easy to start and operate. Air flow and velocity seem good and it really has not been as noisy as the electric blower I had before. I really like not having a cord to get out, drag around, and put up. I did have a problem while on my 3rd tank of fuel and took it for service. They replaced the carburetor within 2 days and it now seems OK.

    Solid blower
    Been using this blower for a season now. Overall I'm pretty happy with it. Starts well, runs good. Haven't used the shredder yet. I do have the gutter kit attachment and have made some quick money with it. It's basic but performs good with this blower.

    Great new model but needs some work
    Having had 15+ excellent years with my Stihl BR420, I sprung for the 700. It starts right up and the weight is well balanced. The increased air volume comes at the expense of air velocity. Dry leaves are moved quickly but not so with sticks, acorns and wet leaves. The BR420 does a better job with these. The real issue is that the antivibration springs between the back plate and the motor are not as firm as in my older model and the motor housing repeatedly pops off the rubber gaskets above the ... read more gas tank. It's shredding the gaskets bit by bit. Hopefully we'll get a recall/repair order on this otherwise great machine.

    Do yourself a favor and don't think twice, buy it!!
    I have wanted a backpack for sometime But didn't want to spend the money, I dreaded leave season every year !!!! Thiis year I decided to spend the cash, this machine is simply amazing ! Makes blowing leaves effortless and more fun than work due to how impressive this machine is. I was able to blow old piles of leaves from the previous years that were wet from rain the day before. If your thinking about it just do it and you will be thrilled ! Typical Stihl, a great product at a great price. A+ ... read more to Stihl on this leaf blowing Hurricane.

    Best blower for the money!
    I LOVE my BR700, its easy to use, not as heavy as expected and the power is amazing!! The sound is a cool plus too. It literally feels like a blower gatling gun that annihilates massive piles of leaves wet or dry. For the last 16 years I’ve used a SH85 blower because I’m not a professional landscaper, yet dreamed of owning a backpack blower. I finally pulled the trigger. I was going to buy the BR450 but decided to buy the most powerful money can buy. I have zero regret, Stihl constantly makes ... read more the best quality products period. My SH85 still works perfectly.
