    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.

    A purchase without regret
    I purchased my BR600 Magnum in Oct 2015. We have many oak, hickory, and maple trees. It moves the leaves quickly and efficiently, even when the leaves are wet and heavy. Acorns and hickory nuts are relocated too. A huge upgrade from my "light duty" backpack blower and much more effective than my neighbor's "professional" model 430 backpack blower. I can finish blowing my yard in about 1/2 to 2/3 the time it previously took. It is somewhat effective in moving light snow in southern TN as well! I ... read more only regret not spending the money and purchasing it sooner.

    Best Blower Ever !
    Did a lot of research , and this blower kept coming to the top of the list. Price point is great value for the features, power and aped that come along with this blower. Have had previous gas blowers in the past, this one puts them all to shame. They can not compare to the power , speed reliability of this machine. Starts every time on the second pull on cold starts, and first time every time when warmed up. Great on fuel as well , large capacity tank compared with others and weight of machine ... read more is less than 24.5 lbs. fully fueled., could not find anything in this class a such a light weight, customer for life , great machine backed by great company.

    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.

    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.

    the little blower that could
    We purchased this blower about a year ago to replace a older br 380 we had as a backup. We didn't want such a bulky blower so we opted for this one. We use it for our commercial gardening business. It has been used about 5 days a week since we've owned it and it still hasn't been in the shop once. It still has the original carburetor and spark plug. We had a hard time with the tube mounted throttle since we mostly used hip throttle blowers. It just takes practice. This blower is strong and light ... read more and very fuel efficient.

    Love the weight and it's powerful!
    I'd recommend the Stihl BR 350. Great machine. It might hurt a bit for the price, but you'll be glad you bought it. I live on a corner lot in a heavily oaked sub division in Florida. No snow, but lots of oak leaves to tend too. This blower gets the job done in half the time it used to take with my old hand held. Pay a little bit now and rest assured you gain that cost savings in time spent out on your lawn. Great purchase.

    Won't be fooled again by mediocrity
    The reliability and durability of a used Stihl chainsaw led me to consider one of their blowers after several disappointments with lesser brands. The BR350 has ample power for our 25 acre campus, and the input I received from pros in the field satisfied me that I made the best choice for the school for the long haul. Although somewhat heavier than I expected, once it's strapped on and adjusted properly, it becomes an extension of my body and responds intuitively to changing conditions.

    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.

    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
    Buy this one! You get the Electric Start, perfect when walking or talking to someone then it starts right up while on your back with a flick of the switch. Adjustable tube for any length you want and great when collapsed for storage. The 450 is powerfull enough to turn you in circles, no need for the 500 or 600.

    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).

    Cannot beat a Stihl product
    I purchased the Stihl BG 86 C-E about a month ago. I sure do like it. As with all Stihl products, you take care of them, they last. Between 2 chainsaws, pole saw, brush cutter, you just cannot go wrong with Stihl. My go to chainsaw is a 1994 009L, that still runs like it did new. Proof, that you take care of Stihl products, they last. The anti vibration on this blower is great. Thank you Stihl, for making a quality product, that is made in the USA. Also, having a servicing dealer is a great, ... read more when you need replacement items. Not the big box stores, that have a one size fits all, & nothing fits anything. You get what you pay for.

    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.
