    Senior Friendly
    I had reservations about this because of my age but after a few tips from an older guy working at dealers I had no problem. I am so glad I went with a larger model as it did everything I wanted. I live in the woods and had 3 feet of wet leaves piled under my deck but this blower took care of it so quick and not only blew them out but blew them far enough that there was no blowback. The weight doesn't bother me but twisting around to saddle up is difficult but guy at store said to just set it on ... read more picnic table etc. and back into it. Worked like a charm for older person. Every time I put it on in my memory I hear " Okay saddle up and move out".

    If you have land and need to save on time you need this product!
    We purchased this blower and we have been extremely happy with it. One reason I could'nt decide if I wanted to purchase it was because I was unsure if was going to be too heavy or too loud for me to handel. It is just the opposite. It runs really quiet for a backpack, it is much lighter than I expected, and is very fuel efficient. After the recall on the gas cap, the product ran great with power to spare! It also cranks easily. I would recommend the BR 550 to anyone who is looking for a blower ... read more that has plenty of power for any job.

    Wonderful
    I have had this unit since 2007. Just learned there is a air filter that needs to be checked. Looked at it and it was just like brand new. I use this for cleaning big areas and keeping a long driveway through the woods clear. I have not had a single problem except the original gas cap cover which they replace a few years later. It starts up on about the third pull and runs great.

    The BR430 is the power I need
    I have a BG86 hand blower which has worked well, yet did not have the power to blow piles of leaves. The BR430 is new and has all the power I need. The BG86 starts easily. The BR 430 is trickier in that once the engine is started, you have to reach over and nudge the throttle lever. If not quick enough, the engine quits and has to be restarted with a few pulls. While relatively new in usage, the BR430 was a good choice.

    More than I expected
    Rated it highest, but I've owned it for only about a month. I've used it several times with no problems. The power is is more than I expected. I though 25 pds, with fuel, on my back would be heavy, but it's not. Very comfortable harness and throttle handle. I'm daring the leafs to fall in my yard this year. Great product

    Another great stihl product
    Purchased a br430 from Bairs in North Canton Ohio was unsure of what unit to buy and was upgrading from a old 55 hand blower the salesman who seemed to also be a stihl maintenance tech was super helpful and knowledgeable. I have had the chance to use the blower about 12 times and it works awesome has great power and really lifts everything up and off your lawn or concrete! Hope it last as long as my stihl saws, weed eater and my old blower.... Thanks Doug A

    The best blower made
    This is the best blower I've owned and/or have researched. This blower moves wet leaves that is matted. I never have a problem with starting this model blower. The price is very competitive for this blower compared to the competition.

    Great Product wish I bought this the first time
    I now have both a trimmer and the blower/shredder vac. I have to say you get what you pay for. Both units start easy and operate flawlessly each time I use them. I wouldn't tell people to buy any other brands. I have had other names like craftsman and Troy built which I thought would be good products but I have always been left with problems shortly after owning. I finally bought a Honda mower three years ago after a craftsman mower just over a year old quit. Sthil is a company true to giving ... read more the customer a great product that you can trust year after year. With product support and great dealers to help you throughout your ownership.

    Great handheld power.
    When my old blower broke I bought a BG 56CE. It did not have the power I needed, my local Stihl dealer let me trade up to BG 86 CE. It has great power to blow wet cedar tree stuff off my roof and out of my gutters. It is relatively quiet compared to my last blower. The engine runs so smooth, I don't get the pins and needles feelings in my hands after extended use, which is my favorite aspect of the BG 86. I also like the four year warranty (with purchase of Stihl gas:oil mix).

    To date, their best professional blower
    I own a BR 550, BR 600 Magnum, and now the BR 450 C-EF -- without a doubt this is Stihl's best blower to date (Oct 2015). I think the Stihl engineers have underrated the CFM, as I can attest that it is virtually equal to the 600 Magnum (and possibly greater). Also, the way that the air is delivered is better, it seems to have more "punch" when you throttle up (compared to the 600). Electric start is a fantastic feature, even on cold mornings, it fires right up. Also, the larger fuel tank is a ... read more benefit over previous models..

    Time saver
    This blower has tripled my productivity. After using this blower commercially I am amazed at the amount of time it has saved me. Features I like: Electric start Moveable throttle to your arm length The self contained blower tube is fantastic. Power is very sufficient. Cons: shoulder straps are bad for such a high dollar blower. It seems like they were an after thought. It gets uncomfortable during long periods of usage. The blower is thirsty, has a big tank for fuel but it can go through ... read more it rather quickly.

    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!

    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.

    On my second one.
    I liked the first one so much that I purchased another one to work more efficiently. Handles most everything I need it to do and at all angles. I'll work this machine for hours at a time and never fell sore or wore out from doing so.

    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.

    Why Did I Wait So Long To Buy It?
    First of, the dealer who I purchased it from, Freeman Creek Equipment was excellent. Friendly, knowledgeable, and gave me a demonstration of its features. The blower itself surpassed my expectations. I have a 1 acre property with mature oaks and maples. Needless to say, in the fall there are plenty of leaves. So much so that I am blowing them for several weeks. This blower has significantly cut down the time to do it. I like the ability to lock in various speeds.
