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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this Power This my first ever BackPack Blower and I was not sure if this was to much of a upgrade or not. But trust me it's not this thing has so much power and I don't even feel it. I was using this to clean up at a construction site with my dad and I saw a brick on the side walk so I did not want to pick it up so I thought it would be cool to blow it but I thought this would never do that. BUT surely enough it did I was Amazed at this. I am 13 years old and I have a medium sized lawn service and do about 6 yards a week with HUGE driveways and this handles it no problem and during fall clean ups this is a breeze it is really easy I would always recommend STIHL my next product I'm getting is the New STIHL FS 91R Trimmer for my lawn service because my 56 just does not have that 100% power anymore it has about 75% power so I can't Wait to pick that up. Anyway this is a great product and I hope to buy more STIHL Products in the Future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Awkward Thought I'd enjoy this item but after 3 uses I prefer having the handheld Stihl blower. Just my personal preference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has a great feature The electric start makes this equipment conducive for my elderly father to use without having to exert effort to attempt manual starting of this equipment. Only problem is I would like to purchase a hip belt to attach to this unit. But Stihl doesn't show to offer one for purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Blower For Professional Landscape Company I have used this blower in the summer, and winter. For a cold start the best way to go about it is:If Warm TempsPrime 7 times, Full Choke, Put on, Hit Start Button, Starts Right Up, Pull Throttle, Choke Goes offIf Cold Out Prime 7 times, Full Choke, Pull Start Till It Cranks Over, Put on, Hit Start Button, Starts Right Up, Pull Throttle, Choke Goes offThe reason that we love this blower is the ability to be working, have a customer, new client, learning crew member come talk to you. You simply shut off the machine, and leave it on. When your done talking hit the button, and your back to work. This is especially handy when teaching new employees.
