Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Blower, No regrets, just wishful thinking I appreciated most everything about this blower. As someone with property, covered in both fir and deciduous trees, having a backpack blower is a must. I was able to cover an area which would have taken me 4-6 hours with my handheld in about an hour and thirty minutes and got a better debris move quantity and rate than with the handheld. I was thoroughly impressed with the blower's ability to get 'un-stuck' debris from my driveway. My only wish (unless I'm doing something incorrectly) is that the backpack strap system had a chest buckle to keep the straps from wanting to work off my shoulders. I could semi-remediate this issue by tighting them extremely snug, however, this raised the blower so far up my back, even with the wand fully extended it was 12+ inches above the surface - I thought this was odd, as I'm not particularly that tall, only 6'1". Again, it's important for any reader of this review to know, by no means do I regret this purchase!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine! Bought this machine from a flea market. Needed a few repairs. But once that was off the list I started using it on huge leaf piles. Blows them away, much better than my br400 that i've had for over 10 years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This blower has been very good so far i have had a hand held blower for years. This is the first backpack blower i have owned. Very powerful works good for blowing leaves during the fall. I wished i had bought one sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Blower My first purchase for my new home and it was worth every penny! Great power, easy to start, and not too heavy. Highly recommend if you have large areas to blow and/or a lot of leaves, branches, rocks to move as this works like a champ.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game changer With a very large property populated by innumerable oak trees, for years I struggled in the fall removing leaves. Finally I upgraded to the Stihl 600 BR. The difference was not only great, it was exponential! I was immediately able to move large piles without difficulty (both wet and dry) and get leaves out from previously awkward areas between shrubs and in densely ground-covered areas. Plus, the ergonomics and relative comfort of the machine made this all enjoyable! This is undoubtedly one of the finest tools I have ever owned and my only regret is not having punched a Stihl years ago!
