    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

    The cost is worth it
    I have grown up around Stihl products and when it came time to invest in a reliable leaf blower that would last a lifetime time and do everything you could ask from a blower on a farm. From cleaning out our barns to blowing the pastures, and even blowing the water off our pool... this blower IS the BEST money can buy!

    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.

    Great power and very dependable

    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.

    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.

    Awesome machine for any size job
    I upgraded after having a Stihl hand held blower for 10 years to a BR450 back pack. Once I got over the learning curve of throwing the back pack on, I realized the freedom that comes with having both hands free along with an incredible increase in CFM "Power". I can imagine that this is certainly not for all home owners, but it certainly fits my "farm" use.

    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.

    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

    a very good product overall
    Overall I like the product very much. I have a very large area to clean with leaves and pine needles. To be fair, I have only had the opportunity to use the unit twice. I live on the edge of a national forest, so I have a large volume of leaves to move. I do this in stages. A few days at a time. The unit works well at its job and looks well constructed. The only complaint I have about it is that the shoulder straps keeps slipping off, even after adjustment. This is a real nuisance. An adjustable ... read more waist strap, or chest strap may help solve this problem. Otherwise, it performs and handles well.

    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.

    AWESOME BLOWER FOR PRO'S OR HOMEOWNER!
    First, this is the best blower I have ever used.I have had echo, shindy, redmax etc. I also have the stihl br600 magnum, great blower also.the br450 cef has lower numbers on m.p.h and cfm, but you cannot tell a difference blowing.plus the electric start and tube make up the difference. Blows wet grass clippings, wet leaves and moves piles of dry leaves with ease. The end tube decreaser is great for moving wet material, remove that and moves piles and piles of dry leaves. Very comfortable, ... read more convenient and reliable. I WOULD RECCOMEND THIS BLOWER TO ANY PRO OR HOMEOWNER.

    This is a awesome blower.
    This 2 stroke blower is the most powerful blower I have used. I love the electric start, the 186 mph wind speeds, and the 642 cfm (cubic feet per minute). Im a short guy so I enjoy being able adjust the blower tube and the control handle to my liking.

    Fantastic blower
    The electric start is fantastic. I have 2 young children and having constant interuptions while doing yard work can get quite tiresome with a traditional pull start engine. This machine has tons of power (more than I was expecting actually) and runs like a dream. I highly recommend the pre-mixed motomix as well. like most homeowners, i dont use mixed fuel quick enough before it goes bad (with the ethanol). Although a bit more expensive than mixing your self, the benefits far out way the costs.

    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.

    Stihl is the best on the market with value
    I'm in Nebraska and was tired of using a shovel or broom to remove SNOW off the walks and driveway... I bought the BG 86 for the highest MPH blowing and it cut my snow removal time in half.. The bonus is the walks are cleaner than using a shovel.. I also use it to blow off my truck instead of brooming it off and scratching the paint.. Can't wait to see how far it will blow the leaves... Lol

    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!
