Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Blower This is exactly what I was looking for in a blower. It saves me a lot of time and it's made well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great experience, great dealer! If you need a blower with plenty of power and air volume, this is it! Easy to start, very easy to use. This unit has very little vibration, which takes a lot of stress off the back and shoulders and, it is fairly quiet. I borrowed my neighbor's Husqvarna backpack blower to clear my leaves last year. At the time, I thought that was a great unit. Compared to my Stihl, it's just a good blower, not great. Everything about this blower is easy, from the start to the throttle, to the telescoping tube. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game Changer I have 20 acres with lots of hickory, oak and black walnut trees. My old blowers wouldn't touch the walnuts. The Stihl BR700 makes sort work of it. What took me weekend(s) last year took hours this year. I run the blower and quickly pile them up and then shovel them into a cart for disposal. It starts everytime and just runs. I could sell them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More power than I need The blower is great! Only problem is the supplier discount has been suspended that I was not aware of when purchasing this product. I would have purchased a different manufacture if I was aware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stihl stands for quality I purchased a Stihl BR700 blower and couldn't be any happier! I remember growing up my Dad always had Stihl equipment in the garage. Anyways, I did all my homework and shopped around looking at all blowers in the same category as the BR700, this took about 1 week. What I learned was Stihl is quality company, that seems to be a step ahead in power equipment tools, (with great consumer reviews) plus built in America. In April, this year, I bought a home in the country with just less than 1 acre of property with 41 oak trees that drop lots of leaves and acorns in the fall. I manually raked the leaves on my property once this season and took 3 weekends in June to do so. Never again! My new Stihl BR 700 blower let me do the job in less than 5 hours on a Saturday. It's all the power I ever needed with 912 cfm and velocity at 35 newtons of blowing force. Its comparatively light, very fuel efficient, quieter than most others, comfortable for the most part, stays put over my shoulders and all the power I'll ever need. I'm glad I shopped around and did my homework but that's 1 week I'll never get back in my life. I'm sold on Stihl equipment! I recently also purchased a Stihl BGA56 battery-powered blower for smaller jobs around the outside of my home (driveway, front porch, deck). Moving forward, to maintain my property I'll be using all Stihl equipment. Next purchase - Stihl Farm Boss chainsaw.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with this expense. I can blow an entire driveway off from the street. Wow. Amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best blower on the market I am a professional landscaper and I blow off a lot of parking lots and at my commercial properties this blower is amazing. I am a 6,1 217 Lb man and this blower has almost blown me over a few times when I have lost my balance. To anyone thinking about purchasing equipment for yard work or landscaping buy Stihl trust me, I have been in the business for over 10 years now and have yet to have one Stihl product fail on me. I am pretty hard on my equipment because me and my guys use it so much and I expect it best out of it. I keep all my equipment clean and serviced, every time it rains and I can't work I take 1-3 hours and maintenance my Stihl products throughly and it makes a difference. If you buy Stihl you will save money in the long run because you will buy a quality piece of equipment that last and you won't have to replace it.
