Rated 5 out of 5 by Time saver This blower has tripled my productivity. After using this blower commercially I am amazed at the amount of time it has saved me.Features I like:Electric startMoveable throttle to your arm lengthThe self contained blower tube is fantastic.Power is very sufficient.Cons: shoulder straps are bad for such a high dollar blower. It seems like they were an after thought. It gets uncomfortable during long periods of usage.The blower is thirsty, has a big tank for fuel but it can go through it rather quickly. September 16, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Electric start?? Over all this is a great blower when it's running. The electric start does NOT start the blower from a cold crank. It takes a few minutes to get it started with the pull cord. Once running you can stop the blower and re-start it with the electric trigger. September 5, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Two weeks old Loved the blower the first two weeks...been and dealer service department for over a week. Electric start quit working after light use. Dealer is attempting to figure out what the issue is. Fingers crossed August 31, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Buy this one!You get the Electric Start, perfect when walking or talking to someone then it starts right up while on your back with a flick of the switch.Adjustable tube for any length you want and great when collapsed for storage.The 450 is powerfull enough to turn you in circles, no need for the 500 or 600.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome power with the convenience of electric start! I love this blower! I'm totally sold on the electric start and I believe all blower manufacturers will be going to this as it is an upgrade long overdue in the industry. I am a home owner and I have a descent size property. I find myself using my blower for more than just blowing off the sidewalk. I use it to clean my gutters, hot tub, latticework, front and back porches, deck, garage and driveway. I would say that my blower is the power tool I reach for the most, so why not get the best I can get? This thing rocks and the electric start feature saves me time and work with the seemingly constant interruptions that come up when I am blowing. Usually the kids, wife, phone or just the need to rearrange deck furniture etc. pops up and I used to have to turn everything off and then take the blower off, set it on the ground and start it and then throw it on my back and keep going, or just keep it running while I did whatever I had to do. Not any more! Electric push button start to the rescue! Love it, get one . . .be happy and save fuel and time and your back while you're at it. April 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Blower Great Blower.. all is good. Although the straps are uncomfortable and it should come with hip support given the price.overall the blower lives up to Stihl quality. April 13, 2016
