Rated 5 out of 5 by Best blower I've owned This is one bad blower. I have nearly 50 oak trees in my yard. After hurricane Matthew we didn't lose any but it looked like a bomb went off. It took 4hrs to blow my yard out which one of took days without it. If you have alot of trees this is the blower you need. October 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A superb blower for anyone with a lot of leaves. My BR600 is easy to start and extremely powerful. It makes cleaning up my yard much easier. It cuts my work time by 80%. It is not light, but it is easy to put on and much more comfortable since I added a sternum strap. I have had it for a year and should have purchased it a long time ago. October 14, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by PERFECT I am a single middle aged woman who HATES buying gas powered lawn tools because I have such a hard time pull starting them. This is AMAZING, starts easy, is very powerful but the back pack makes it super easy to carry around September 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Blower This is my second one. I gave the first one to my Son after realizing he really needed a blower (one season old). The blower is a little heavy for me but I love the performance. I keep my power equipment in top notch shape using only OEM parts and fuel mix. This machine will last me for years. Also, my dealer Covington Farm & Fuel is the best! September 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Unit Excellent backpack blower with all performance I could ever need. September 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I wish I could give it 10 stars! What an amazing piece of equipment! Until owning the BR600, I had only ever used the smaller, hand held blowers which seemed like a gimmick to tell you the truth. They would only blow about half of the leaf pile about half as far as you needed it to go, which forced you to make twice as many trips back and forth across the yard. After originally purchasing the BR600 for leaves, I quickly realized that a REAL blower had nearly endless uses! This monster will blow not only leaves out of your yard, but twigs, sticks, rocks, grass clippings, mulch... Etc... It is truly hard to believe the power that this thing puts out!Our summer had a long dry spell in the middle of it. I was used to my grass growing rather slowly. Mowing only needed to be done every other week and the grass was mostly burned and brown. We quickly got back-to-back storms which made my yard explode in to a small Amazon! Before I knew it, my grass was so long and thick that I was barely able to mow it. After beating my mower up just to get it all knocked down, my yard looked like a freshly mowed hay field... Clumps of wadded up grass and balls of heavy, mulched nastiness made it look horrible. It was too much for the yard sweeper. I let it sit for a few hours in the sun to dry out a bit before I was going to start raking. Then it hit me... Why not try the BR600? I fired it up and started going to town! This beast blew almost three acres of heavy, wet grass with ease! I can't even imagine how much time (and how many blisters) it saved me! Hats off to Stihl for yet another amazing product!
