BR 600 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 475.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome blower I never write reviews....but I am so impressed that this time I have to. Bought my br600 yesterday and I can't believe the difference in power compared to my old echo. Started it for the first time this morning and decided to blow my shop out (yes, I have OCD) and at 1/2 throttle it started blowing hanging tools off the walls. Holy cow!So, with a big grin on my face, I went out onto the property. This thing blew away years of neglect by he previous owners with ease (we just bought the place). I was blowing tumbleweeds of pine needles and cones like they were nothing. The power is definitely there and saved me hours of work time. As for reliability, it's way too early to say. But I will say that the few times I've started it, it only takes one pull. And the dealer up here, Camino Power Tools, have a great reputation and have been in business for decades and have always taken good care of me and all my logger friends. As others have mentioned, I would like to see a chest strap added to the front as the straps do tend to spread too far apart, especially for guys like me who have broad chests. But that's not a big deal and will be easy for me to add. Although I'd like to see Stihl add that to their design. At any rate, it's a great product and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! I feel like The Terminator with this thing. I am a maintenance worker for a school district and use my BR600 for everything from blowing wood chips back on to playground areas, blasting dust & cobwebs out our football stadium, to everyday grounds work. I'd never go back to using anything else. Get one!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very hard to start Please advise. Our BR 600,used only for at our home, can be very hard to start. We have taken to our local, Stihl authorized dealer/service provider to be diagnosed. We have been told that the blower is in great shape but for some reason, it is stopping on the compression stroke. In doing so, either the pull cord or my wrist will break before I can pull the motor through the compression stroke.Please help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats a rake... I have a 2-acre yard half covered in trees. We didn't rake all of it last fall as it was just a battle we could not win. I decided to pick up the BR600 and I'm very glad I did. It was blowing soaking wet leaves, sticks, branches and small rocks and a snake like they were nothing. The spots where I had leaves on top of mulch I could cut the throttle back most of the way and leave most of the mulch undisturbed. It's a lot quieter than I thought it would be. Also worked great on a bee that kept buzzing me...not sure where he ended up...Between this BR600, my FS70R and MS261 C-M I can keep the place looking nice! Anyway, highly recommend this leaf blower if you need something that can move leaves with not much effort!
