Rated 5 out of 5 by from FABULOUS BLOWER Really pleased with the BR600. Great power and starts fairly easy (usually 2-3 pulls). Really happy with it. Highly recommend. Im a homeowner with about 1 area and couldn't be happier with its performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best unit I've ever owned Easy to start, powerful, moves everything that falls on our property. I've had several different units - backpack & handheld in the 15 years we've owned this 4 acres in the woods with a 700ft driveway & nothing can compare to the performance of the BR 600. Could be lighter - a couple hours walking around with it on your back is quite the workout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BR 600 ahould be considered the professional standard I own a commercial lawn and landscape business. We us the BR600 because of its reliability, durability and performance. The blower was the top perfomer in the Stihl lineup until the BR700 realease, but we still run all BR600’s. My crews all agree it has the best mix of volume and velocity. Its perfect for everything from mow and go to heavy leaf cleanup. We highly recommend this blower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved me hours the first weekend of use! I used to spend 30 minutes sweeping off my garage and driveway, now I’m done in 90 seconds. I used to spend 3 hours raking leaves from my fire pit area, now 5 minutes.Even blows mud and rocks off my concrete driveway in front of my barn.The old growth forest floor on my property has never looked so groomed. Don’t skimp, get this model as it will pay for itself in the first 1-2 days.Might even use it to blow out my wife’s disgusting kids vehicle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Powerhouse This tool. Is the single best piece of equipment I have ever owned. It starts on the first pull every time, as long as I do my part. Economical operation, and I have had zero issues. I was using a BG55 handheld on heavy leaves on a 500 foot driveway in a heavily wooded area. The job took about 5-6 hours and at least 5 tanks of fuel. A BG55 is a great tool for smaller jobs, and I still have 2 of them. Putting the powerful 600 to work on this job cut my time down to about 2 hours, and I didn’t even burn 2 tanks of fuel. This machine was also very good at removing about 12 inches of powdery snow from my new properties’ 600 foot paved driveway. I always use non ethanol fuel with double stabilizer added in all of my equipment. Spending a little more on quality fuel,saves headaches later on. Next new toy for me? A new Stihl string trimmer!
