Reliability, performance and overall excellent value! You need this blower!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful blower The blower works great except the ribbed elbow on the blower tube cracked in the first 15 minutes. Local dealer warranted the part right away. Much more powerful than my old blower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes 1/4 time of standard blower Amazing power to get the leaves moving in the right direction. Surely this blower is a must have....figure one day I'll upgrade to something more powerful. Currently have 13 trees and leaves just don't have a fighting chance....dry or wet!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Br600 Had a br 400 purchased in 98 that lasted until 2015 that required minimal maintenance. Decided it was time to upgrade. I bought a br600 thinking it would provide the same quality. After 9 months it just lost power. I took it to my dealer as I still had 2yrs and 3 months left on the warranty. I was told I must have done something to it. 350 to repair was the quote. Decided to return the br700 I had just purchased as the warranty is useless...Took the box of br600 parts to another shop...I was told by the owner that the only blowers that come in are the br 600 s and 700 s. 4 stroke engines that run on 2 stroke mix. Terribly disappointed with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the most used Stihl Product I own Wasted a little over a year before I bought the BR600 blower. I have a 200 ft row of Pine trees that needs needles and cones herded and cleaned up. Also after mowing I use it to blow off the sidewalks driveway and patio. I love the power, Starts on the first pull every time, easy on and off. blow the gutter out. blow the landscaping out after trimming the shrubs. Also use it to blow snow.that's right snow. Patio , sidewalks, blows better dry than wet, but I pickup a snow shovel a lot less. I run premium fuel with the Synthetic oil in all my Stihl Tools. Makes all the difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the best tool I have in my house! Never fails! This was a product I really looked into before buying. I had a much lower powered backpack blower that was good but not that powerful and was a pain to start. I asked other homeowners and business owners what they had and how they liked and if they also ever had others to compare against. After about 5-6 months of asking everyone I could and constantly readings reviews and finally trying about 6-7 different kinds. It was clear I was making a decision and it was the BR 600!!! Stihl makes a product that always starts on 1st or 2 nd pull. It has plenty of power and constantly comes through. I even got caught in a snow storm and my snow blower broke,so said well let's try the BR 600 and see if it will help. It wasn't a very wet snow so it handled almost better then my snow blower! It constantly amazes me! Fuel efficiency,light weight, even holds trigger down for when using for long extended periods on full blast.
