Rated 5 out of 5 by from BR200 So far, I think this blower is great and very nice! It's lightweight and easy to operate. I've used it only a couple of times so far, but it serves my needs well. I would highly recommend this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the price I've got 2.5 acres and lots of trees, I mow most of the leaves but blowing off sidewalks and places I can't mow this blower is awesome, plus if you use the synthetic oil it doubles the warranty

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another excellent STIHL product I purchased this blower for leaves and acorns in my yard along with blowing snow off the drive way. Did an excellent job at both. Has enough power to move big piles of leaves but is noticeably less power than some of the higher end models. This is the perfect product for a homeowner who doesn't need all the extra power or want to pay the higher price tag for the professional models.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight, does what I need, and then some... I bought the BR 200 this fall for leaf cleanup duty. We get a LOT of leaves on our 1/2 acre lot, both from our mature trees and our neighbor's . My back is not the strongest and raking is out of the question. My primary considerations were power and the 12 lb. weight weight. I would have preferred the additional power of the BR 350, but my back didn't like the extra 10 lbs. when I tried one on at the dealer. It may have taken a little bit longer to clean up the leaves, but the BR 200 did what I needed and I am pleased with it. The 12 lb. weight is hardly noticeable. I climbed up a ladder and onto the roof with it on my back and quickly blew leaves out of the gutters. It didn't affect my balance at all and it really simplified this job. I think that 22 lb. BR 350 would have affected my balance to the point where climbing up a ladder with it on my back might not have been a good idea. Then came the use I did not consider when I bought it. The outside temperature is now in the mid-teens. When this happens the snow is light an fluffy and the snowblower just blows it up into your face. I had not winterized the BR 200 yet so I tried standing upwind and blowing off the driveway and the sidewalk with it. It worked great, cleared everything off much faster than shoveling, and did it with no effort. The lighter weight also was a big plus for walking in slippery conditions. Again, the weight didn't affect my balance and I could hardly notice it on my back. This use is strictly a bonus. I should add that it started just as easily at 15 degrees as it did at did when the temperatures were in the 60s - no difference at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BR 200 – Stihl - leave blower. To It May Concern:I have purchased number products from Stihl over the years. I have been very pleased with the performance from all of them. But this new, BR 200 – Stihl - leave blower is outstanding. Also, I am a Disabled Vietnam Veteran and have a difficult time walking and using my legs, arms and hands. Because, of the lightweight and fairly easy start system, I am able to use this blower with very little problem. The Stihl should offer veteran’s discount, they are a little pricey, but their products are worth it.Best regards,Gary MaznikRoaming Shores, Ohio
