Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Blower, I am very happy with my purchase With so many sizes of blowers, I was worried perhaps I did not get one large enough for what I needed. I am beyond pleased with the selection that I made with the help of the salesman. I live on an acre and need something with enough power to blow leaves, fir cones, fir needles, cedar tree droppings, gravel, blow out flower beds and such. This unit does the trick perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Product is great and ideal for every Home Owner The BR 430 Blower has been the ideal blower for my purposes as a regular Home Owner. It works just as good if not better than the BR 600. The Blowing capacity ratings are pretty close to the BR 600 from 199 mph to 189 mph. That is not a whole lot of difference for what I need it for. It's a great Blower in its own Class!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall a great machine. This blower is easy to use, starts every time, and has plenty of power. It is pretty light and does not strain my back at all. Important to me due to multiple back surgeries.My only issue is that it really needs a chest strap or it slips off my shoulders. I used a Velcro strap and that fixes the problem.Recommend Stihl modify the design of the straps to include a chest strap with a quick release.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine. Many purchasers mention the problem of the shoulder straps slipping off their shoulders. I solved this problem with a couple cable ties like the electricians use to bundle electrical wires. Loop the cable ties around the top of the shoulder straps right near where they fasten onto the frame of the blower. If you did not cinch up enough slack on the first attempt, you can adjust the cable tie easily. If you get it too short you will have to cut the tie and start over. No problem, They cannot be reused but they are cheap. The ties can be joined end to end to make a tie long enough to loop over both shoulder straps.
