    Great Value
    Good price for a great product = extreme value! Starts well and has all the power I need for around-the-house blowing. It does tend to hic a bit after it has been idling but that should alleviate after it is broken in, or I will tweak the idle on the carb.

    This product is great.
    I'm a 50 year old plus Lady and this product is great, it is so easy for me to crank just like the salesman said. The gentleman put gas in it and let me try it before I purchased it. I thought that was wonderful. All the people that work at the SunSouth in Carrollton location are supper great. The blower does a great job. money well spent!!!!!!

    Great investment
    I am very pleased with my BR 200. Just the right size. While I wish there were a bit more power, I understand the trade off for a smaller sized model. I would purchase this tool all over again if I had the same decision to make. I have a little over a half acre yard FULL of leaves. And now I'll be able to keep it neat and cleaned up thanks to my Stihl.

    Absolutely the best blower I've owned.
    This blower is the best blower I have ever owned. I can work for hours with it on my back. It does much better than my bagger on the tractor ever did. I'm glad I spent the extra money and got the bigger one.

    For the homeowner, this is the one you want
    This unit has more than enough power. We live in the Poconos on a 1.25 acre lot with lots of trees. Moves heavy wet leaves with ease. Unless you are a pro or have a huge area to clear this machine is more than enough. Great buy at this price.

    Excellent Blower
    I bought this blower to clear my new yard. I live in the woods and have about 3/4 acre of yard surrounded by oaks and maples and pines. This blower has surpassed my expectations. It has handled the carpet of leaves that lands in the yard and will blow a 10" high pile with no problem. It will run for an hour and a half on a tank of fuel. I highly recommend this blower. It's easy on the back too. I love it so much, I convinced my brother to buy one.

    I would recommend this blower for the small home owner.
    My experience with the BG55 has been great. It always starts; prime once, choke on twice, choke off once and it's running, just half to milk it up to full throttle. However I need a blower with a little more turbulence, acorns and leaves move well but a good twig laughs at it. Overall it's a good machine

    Treat yourself!
    Ok, I normally bought power equipment by price point first. After being in the lawn business and in maintanence I guarantee this...if you want durability, dependability and efficiency you need to try Stihl! It is by far those most well designed equipment around. Give yourself a great gift!

    excellent for the average home
    You can't beat the power of a gas engine! I had a battery blower prior to this and it was just ok. This Stihl 56 is great. Light enough to carry and more power. The very best thing is the eave trough cleaning attachment.In a few minutes I can walk around my home and clear every gutter and downspout without a ladder. Time saving and significantly safer.

    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 start Moveable throttle to your arm length The 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 ... read more it rather quickly.

    Incredible product
    Had my fill of handhelds. This blower is the most powerful I've ever used - and it doesn't seem to matter if the leaves are dry or not. It initially seems a little heavy but once on with the straps adjusted, it is very comfortable. The tube being adjustable is great - and of course the electric start is awesome. Highly recommended.

    My crew and I are impressed
    I have been using the Br600 &Br550s since they came out, I recently made the switch to give this electric start blower a 'what the heck' shot on the trailer and we are very enthusiastic about it. We can't tell the slight decrease in CFM but it's in between the power of a BR550 and BR600. Overall, the differences are minimal and I think the electric start may prove to be worth it. It is slightly heavier (3 lbs.) but the gas tank is bigger. Give it a shot in the field or at your home, I think it ... read more will stand up to the abuse like any other Stihl product.

    Great productworks as advertised
    The vacuum tube works great! You must go slow with wet leaves or small twigs. I pick up 10 to 12 vacuum bags ever other day in high winds. No instructions, but look at the instructions you got with your blower it explains how it works. GO SLOW WITH WET LEAVES GRASSHOPPER. Do not exceed the vacuum capacity of the blower and you will have no problems.

    Excellent tool!
    This vacuum is an awesome tool. We use it a lot to clean up plant trimming, weeds, leaves, etc. in our greenhouses. It puts almost anything it can pick up right through. Highly recommended!

    Powerful tool
    The suction is quite good for the fan size. I work in an industrial facility, it works well suctioning wood debris & breaking small wood shavings. Would be nice if an extension was designed to lengthen the readh

    Extremely Powerful and Lighweight!!
    This blower is practically weightless compared to all other handhelds (due to separate required battery adapter pack). The power this thing has is unreal. Battery life isn't great with standard small batteries, but sufficient for small jobs. Great blower!

    Replacing my gas blowers and plug in electric
    These are great for our maintenance crews that work small to medium properties. Our clients really appreciate the low noise and no exhaust. I feel the fuel and repair savings will pay for the units in under two years. I am switching to as many products in the line as possible. Initial cost of batteries and charger are distributed over each additional tool, the more the merrier.

    Very Powerful
    After working with the full line of gas powered products on our 16 acres we have downsized to 1/2 acres in a quiet gated community. I decided to give the BGA 100 a try based on the convenience of battery power. What an amazingly quiet powerful blower. With two batteries and the 500 series charger, one is never without a fully charged battery in reserve. Highly recommend this blower for homeowner use.
