Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with the product Went with the stihl name, and I'm glad I did. The machine is comfortable. It starts right up. Blows with a lot of pressure. What else could you ask for?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Electric start, power and nozzle extension makes this machine awesome Love this machine!! Makes minutes of 400+ feet of curb blowing after edging. Cleans the tractor of all post cutting debris, and makes minutes of blowing out the garage. Have left it sit for 5 days and the electric start fires right up. Can't wait to see what it does this fall!! Have had it for over a month and have yet to pull start it yet outside of the demo at Algonac, MI Lumber Jack

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Machine The 450-C-EF was purchased in 2016 and performed like a champ. The only problem experienced with it was the clogged spark arrestor......cleaned it and it was good to go. Several weeks ago, the machine was stolen, along with a Trimmer and Power Washer. These two items were Troybilts, which I have used for years. I decided to replace the trimmer with a Stihl and haven't regretted the decision. I may purchase a Stihl power washer as a replacement, but I'm debating the significantly higher price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product!!!! I have had this blower for a year. Owning a lawn care company I use this blower nearly everyday. It has held up so far. The electric start really makes blowing easy especially if someone walks up while you using it. You can turn it and not have to take it off to restart.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from RETURNED TO DEALER This "professional" blower did not keep up with all the leaf blowing that needed to be done. Not sure of the proper "mechanics" of what kept occurring, but after a few hours of blowing, it would lose substantial power and had to be cleaned out.Loved the fact that it had a battery start but very disappointed in its performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Electric start not reliable on first start. I like the concept of the electric start, but it hasn't proved reliable. The battery does not hold a charge. Each time you use the unit you must manually pull start the blower for its initial start even when using the next day. After running for a while if you pause and stop the blower it will start again at the push of a button which is convenient. I took the blower back to the dealer and they replied that there was nothing wrong with it so I presume it is normal that the battery doesn't hold a charge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1 year so far with the 450 C-EF My blower starts after 1 or 2 pulls regardless of outdoor temp and I couldn't be more pleased. Seems to be more than enough power to satisfy almost any homeowner. I use it at least once a week. The electric start is a godsend to pick up/move things around, talk to neighbors, kids, etc. I would never have a blower without electric start again.Just FYI, complaints about not being able to start the BR450C-EF with the electronic start are misplaced. You do not start the blower with the button. You must do the initial start via recoil. Once it's been running and you stop it, you RESTART it with the electronic start.I cannot recommend this blower highly enough as the near perfect compromise for a homeowner.
