Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blower lives up to reviews! This blower lives to it's name. I have .5 acres to do and lots of leaves and pine needles. It has the blow power to get to the dirt and grass but also keep the grass staying. I can spend all day with it and not have any issues. Usually get about 50 minute run time on a tank of gas. Overall very satisfied with this blower and the job it can do. Would recommend to anyone who has an acre or less to do. It is powerful and gets the job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a homeowner For the small increase in price from the 350 model it's well worth it. Power galore, wet leaves are not an issue. Would highly recommend this product to anyone including contractors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good blower, but uses a lot of gas. I bought this blower from a local stihl dealer. It has a lot of power and blows leaves really good. but i only use it about once or twice a week and i've probably used about 2 gallons of gas in less than a month. its good but its just a gas hog. Soon i'll probably buy a br 600 for home and just use my 430 at work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Blower Comfortable and light for its size. Had issues with blower tube clamps coming loose, otherwise nice blower. Definitely needs a chest strap.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BR 430's have lots of problems. Do not last and not dependable, always in the shop Not worth the price paid, poor performance. Not dependable and technicians are not qualified to fix stihl products. Stihl used to have a good reputation of toughness and durability plus dependable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a time saver! I have about a 350 ft driveway, 3000 sq ft of parking area, and 4200 sq ft of roof..., all covered with trees, and LOTS of leaves.It used to take me over 3+ hrs to blow the leaves off these areas, now it takes me about 30 min, start to finish!I've worn out two hand held gas blowers, one backpack blower, and 3 "high end" electrical blowers, before I decided to get a Professional grade Stihl blower, even though I knew the quality of their products (I own 4 Stihl chain saws), I had hesitated paying the higher price for this blower.I wish that I'd bought it sooner!!
