Rated 5 out of 5 by Big blower with big performance We are in mid-Michigan, fourteen acres, with six acres of yard, with a mix of hardwoods and pines. The Stihl B600, used in combination with a diesel power mower with bagger, has made yard cleanup efficient and possible for a retired couple to handle. The blower is also used for outbuilding cleanup, equipment drying after washing; pretty much gets used every week. I run all small engines on non ethanol fuel with Stihl HP Ultra oil. This blower starts with one pull, and has zero problems in the past year. Purchased at Superior Saw, Holt, Michigan; an excellent sales and service operation. October 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best blower ever. period. This blower pays for itself very quickly. Solid, easy and fast starting machine. Am able to blow leaves that have been rained on as if they were dry. Huge piles of leaves just blown into the woods, then I blow the forest floor clean just for fun and because I can! Big wet Aspen leaves to pine needles this blows 'em up and rolls the pile away with ease. October 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent! This is a GREAT tool... and now I won't buy anything but Stihl. October 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by good powerful blower This blower is lighter than my older one and more comfortable to wear for the longer jobs.My older blower is still a good product but this is better for my old back and the extra power is really good for the big jobs. October 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great piece of equipment had a br600 for 9 years now,still runs like its brand new,best piece of equipment ever. i see stihl came out with the new br700,i will be purchaseing one of them soon. October 19, 2016
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
