BR 500

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why Did I Wait So Long To Buy It? First of, the dealer who I purchased it from, Freeman Creek Equipment was excellent. Friendly, knowledgeable, and gave me a demonstration of its features.The blower itself surpassed my expectations. I have a 1 acre property with mature oaks and maples. Needless to say, in the fall there are plenty of leaves. So much so that I am blowing them for several weeks. This blower has significantly cut down the time to do it. I like the ability to lock in various speeds.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good leaf blower This is a good leaf blower, but not long lasting. It's two years old and just quit working. When idling, I'd try to increase the speed and it would quit. I stopped to refuel then it wouldn't start again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Quite and Does the Job I Maintain Grounds equipment on a university campus and we recently purchased three BR 500 Blowers for our department. All three are working great and it is much nicer around campus with the reduced noise levels from these blowers. We have many trees and at any one time are running 7 to 8 leaf blowers during the Fall to keep up. The BR 500 Blowers move less air than other blowers that are available but they provide enough air to do the job and as stated above produce noticeably less noise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design for the urban leaf blower. Excactly what was needed in a noise conscience environment. Stihl enough power to lift wet leaves of the sidewalks. If I was to use it everyday I would probably go for the BR600 but since it is only used sparingly this does the job I bought it for.
