Rated 5 out of 5 by Took a week of vacation to do,,,what this does in 4 hours Jusy insane ,,i do the trees if they havent dropped all the leaves yet, 22 foot roof,yard and woods in backyard. .wife likes it but she has to be careful, , it will send her off balance. Owned for 5 years runs like new.. August 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I really like the large gas tank. Blower is very nice quality and has great features . would recommend STIHL to anybody. July 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolute beast! This blower is an absolute beast. Makes short work of what should be a massive cleanup effort. Could not possibly give it enough praise. If you go buy the adage, you get what you pay for, then this certainly delivers. July 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best snow blower While i purchased this blower for the inordinate number of leaves dropping every fall, I find this is actually more useful after the snow flies as a true snow blower. 3" and under of fluffy snow takes just minutes to clear. Last winter I only got the 2 stage snow mover 4-6 times to clear truly heavy snow. We put away the shovel and broom we used to use for light snow. Great product!!! July 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by BR 600 is Awesome Even though the price of this blower may initially scare the average consumer away, this is an awesome unit. I've owned this unit now for over a year and when I use it weekly, my neighbors all stand there watching in awe. It simply blows like crazy and makes moving leaves, grass clippings, bark, dirt and debris an easy job in very little time. I've even used it to move light snow in the winter. It simply will remove spots from a leopard! Great unit and I certainly would buy again... July 10, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Blower Ever ! Did a lot of research , and this blower kept coming to the top of the list. Price point is great value for the features, power and aped that come along with this blower. Have had previous gas blowers in the past, this one puts them all to shame. They can not compare to the power , speed reliability of this machine. Starts every time on the second pull on cold starts, and first time every time when warmed up. Great on fuel as well , large capacity tank compared with others and weight of machine is less than 24.5 lbs. fully fueled., could not find anything in this class a such a light weight, customer for life , great machine backed by great company.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Great product poor reliability The Br 600 has great power Compared to other backpack blower in its class. The bad on the Br600 is the fact that the workmanship,quality control is not so good. I believe they have a flaw in the manufacturing the muffler has three bolts that over time work themselves loose along with other hardware on the blower like bezel bolts when they come loose they hit the fly wheel to cause damage to the blower . Depending on if you are under full power or not when it happens it can be complete devastation of the blower. I have had this happen to me three times all brand new blowers no more then a year old. It is probably a good thing the don't manufacture cars because we would have exhaust falling of cars everday. My option is I think stihl knows about this problem but why fix it when they can keep selling u a new blowers. June 29, 2016
