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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Weight is average, would be nice if it came with a chest strap for more support. Starts and runs great. Has plenty of power. Love the cruise control!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BR430 Backpack Blower I purchased this blower a couple of months back and have used it several times. It starts on the first and second pull every time. This thing has a tremendous amount of power and doesn't seem to burn a lot of gas. Its very simple to operate and comfortable to wear. The only downfall I have is one strap will come off your shoulder. I remedied this by purchasing a chest strap. Solved the problem. I notice very little vibration. Its a little louder than my hand carry one but this one is much larger. I can only say good things about Stihl products. I have a Stihl chainsaw, a shop vac and now a blower and have nothing but praise for them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great so far. My company has had one of these models for approximately 4 years. We have been very pleased with it.I needed one for around the house and am equally pleased so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely happy with a Stihl I bought this as a replacement because I had my other backpack blower stolen. I'm glad I spent the extra money and got myself a Stihl instead of just replacing what was stolen. Much better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from plenty of power I purchased this blower for home use. We have many trees on our property. The blower starts easily, runs relatively quietly (although ear plugs helpful) and has plenty of power to move leaves anywhere. Anti-vibration design is also a plus. I received an extended 4 year warranty by purchasing the Stihl 2 cycle oil. The unit appears well built to give many years of use. The only cons I have are that the instructions are weak with regard to blower tube assembly and the shoulder straps tend to slip off at times as there is no chest strap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First gas blower I have a battery blower for doing light sweeping, and a corded electric one that does OK but managing the cord is a pain. Enter the Stihl 430. Wow. Far more power than I've ever had and I can go anywhere. It's the best of all worlds. Fairly easy to start, and I wish I hadn't waited so long to buy it!
