A lightweight, professional-caliber backpack blower for use around the home.

BR 200
BR 200 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 88.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Produce I have owned this backpack blower for a year. Excellent product. It starts on the second pull everytime I use it. It lacks a little power compared to my previous handheld blower but not enough to downgrade it. The upside of having a backpack instead of holding the blower and your arm go numb outweighs the sligh loss in power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, Light & Powerful The BR200 is smaller & lighter than the larger, more powerful Stihl backpack blowers. While it does have less power than the larger heavier backpack blowers, it is still very powerful. It is more than sufficient for the tasks we have need of in blowing debris, leaves, grass clippings, etc as a homeowner. It is more than powerful enough for the blowing tasks we have around the house, clearing yard debris, & clearing the pool decking of 'stuff'. And it is extremely light. We looked a the larger Stihl backpack blowers & they are very, very nice, but are also much heavier. My wife wanted to be able to use our Stihl backpack blower, & the larger, more powerful models were really too heavy for her. The BR200 is light enough she can use it comfortably. For the average homeowner, I think the BR200 is more than sufficient.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pure Quality I previously owned an0ther name brand backpack and it lasted me 10 years. It was not the most powerful blower but kind of a intermediate unit. It was comfortable to the back and pretty easy to start. After hearing about the reliability of STIL , I decided to purchase the BR200 because of the weight of the unit and the price that was about the same as the other name brand 130BT. That part of the BR200 is great, but the blowing is far from being a useful tool. Also in comparison to my old Husky this unit is poorly constructed. I am sure the reliability is great and the service is exceptional, but all and all I wish I did not purchase this unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product w One Minor Glitch Nice little blower. I have a large yard. Makes clean up after mowing a snap. Haven't used for fall clean up yet so we'll see how the power is for tons of leafs. This thing is so easy to start. Wish STIHl would use similar starting system for chainsaws. One glitch is that the blower hose keeps wanting to pop off the back pack. I've tightened it down once. If it continues, I will take it into the shop for a look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good lightweight backpack for smaller yards I bought this Stihl backpack blower after my handheld gas-powered blower from another manufacturer failed. I wanted to get a backpack blower to replace it, but not spend a fortune or get something that was so huge that my wife would be unable to handle it if she wants to use it. This blower is a solid upgrade from a handheld. It's not the most powerful blower out there and it's not what you'll see on the trucks with the professional landscape crews. However, it is lightweight and can be stored easily--and it gives you the handsfree convenience of wearing it on your back. Given that we don't have a large yard, this is more than enough for 99% of the tasks we need to do. It starts reliably and runs true--more than I can say for my old blower. If you have a lot of acreage to maintain, consider a larger Stihl blower. However, if you need something for a more modest yard, it's hard to beat the BR 200's combination of reliability and convenience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for home use. Love this blower. It's light weight and easy to start. Does the job as well as a larger blower. I use it on roof and all around the outside. I have owned several other blowers (backpack and hand held - gas and electric ), this one is the best for my use hands down. And have a repair shop local. ,
