Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Good First let me tell you the problems with this blower, one month of ownership the choke lever breaks off. Second the straps are very thin and not comfortable. Third I have a leak now on the blower after only five months of ownership. Fourth this 4-2 stroke technology is terrible, it has no power and it is no good blowing leaves. It is back at the shop again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent power, shoulder straps lacking I have several other Stihl power products but when my old backpack blower recently broke I replaced it with the BR600. The BR600 has excellent power, easy to start, and has cut my leaf blowing time considerably. My only complaint is the shoulder strap setup is very uncomfortable compared to my old blower. The shoulder straps are to thin and tend to twist and the padded sections are to narrow. I find myself spending too much time readjusting the straps while operating the unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BR600 backpack blower I recently bought a br600 backpack blower. It starts easy, runs great, plenty of power. The only complaints I have with is that the straps are to close together for me and I am not a big person, it is hard to get the second strap on because of this. I have the straps as loose as they can be. My second complaint is that this unit needs a third strap to hold the two straps together in front, they,(straps) keep working their way off my shoulders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light but excellent power and was easy to start. Was using another name brand, the lightest I could find that had good power as medical issues limit my weight carry.At Ace, I was surprised to find that the Stihl was lighter even than my current (which is still one of the lightest around) but I was assured I would have more power.Got it home, started it up and the power was superb, while the weight plus their anti-vibration system made it a pleasure to use. No only was it lighter, but the much greater airflow let me finish in less than 1/2-1/3 the time, so I had to carry it far less.I'd heard about Stihl and now I know why people love them. Add me to the list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the BEAST of all blowers This is my second 600 blower, and it never disappoints. The tasks I use this for around rhe neighborhood make the neighbors marvel at the power compared to their other brand blowers that are marketed as "good alternatives" to Stihl.... subsequently, I sold my first 600 to my neighbor... I hated to see it go, but I promptly went out and bought the newest 600.... EVEN BETTER THAN THE FIRST!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Life Equipment I have owned multiple Stihl blowers over the last 20 years. All of them still continue to work with no real issues. The invested value has been well worth every dollar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very powerful Good ergonomics, very powerful. Starts very good. Can't stand small engines that are hard to start. If it does not start on the second pull its out of gas. I run only non ethanol fuel to reduce build up and for extended fuel life. I have a lot of trees. Oaks and hickory. This thing blows large piles of hickory nuts almost like leaves. Had it for a year now and it gets a real workout at my place. I replaced a smaller husqvarna with this thing when it got hard to start. It runs circles around any blower I have ever used

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works as advertised........ Never expected to pay this much for a blower, but needed the power. We have lots of trees on our property, that make a mess. This blower does exactly what I need it to do. If I had to do it all again, I would buy the same one............

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always dependable We waited way too long to add this piece to our outdoor equipment. This puts blowing leaves into the category of child's play. Wet dead leaves are no longer an issue. We'll still use our hand held blowers for light jobs but if I had to choose between them I'd pick the back pack blower every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BR600 I have a Stihl handheld blower which has served me well for many years. I recently purchased the BR600 and was amazed at the power and performance of the machine. It cleared the pine needles and leaves off my lawn and flower beds with ease. I should have bought a backpack blower years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Unit!!! You will be very happy! I purchased this unit 3 years ago and this is by far the best. This blower is less than 22 lbs on your back and has comfortable hand controls. I use this to clean an enormous amount of leaves from those oak trees on my 5 acre lot. I highly recommend this machine. Super sweet!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MOVES the debris excellently! I purchased this machine because I have a rediculous amount of leaves to move . . . and move them it does. Even if they are wet, it did the job so well. I love this thing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Equipment The BR600 is what I expect from Stihl and fits well with my almost complete line of Stihl equipment. The BR600 is easy to start, idles nicely and has great power. The "cruise control" is very helpful. The back padding and straps are comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power Baby I had a craftsman for years took me 2 to 3 hours to do around my house, driveway, and spouting. I live in the woods with alot of leafs. I did more with the 600 in 2 hours, half the time. It did a better job around shrubs and landscaping. You just have to watch it has too much power for the mulch. Just ease up on the power. I use 93 gas with stihl additives and lucas for ethonal for years with my chainsaws and weedeaters. No problems.Thank you stihl for a great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This blower has tons of power! I just bought this to start doing bigger fall cleanups. This is a very powerful blower. It will blow large piles of leaves distances that my handheld bg 55 would never be able to. In my opinion it was on the expensive side though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's just AWESOME Cleared the leaves from 4 huge maples on my front lawn in no time at all. Maple trees drop big heavy leaves... especially when they get wet. The BR-600 blower took the entire lawn on like a champ. I was shocked at how well it performed.

Date published: 2016-11-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from what a great product! I have had this blower for a year now. I'm completely sold. I had a hard time turning loose of the money when I first bought it. I had a handheld blower for years, and when the leaves got so high I had to get out the rake to finish. Now you just go and blow.. It also starts so easy. I pull it once, it starts, that it. Wish I had bought this 10 years ago! You won't be sorry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very good product BR 600 has plenty of power for leaves and pine needles. Has started every time I have tried and is plenty light enough to use on 25000 sq. ft. of property.
