Rated 5 out of 5 by Not for everyone and perfect for some This is a handheld size blower that mounts on your back.I have spine and shoulder issues and this one is perfect for me. I can't swing around a handheld and I prefer it evenly distributed over both shoulders.For some people this is blower is too small. For me it's very manageable.This is the second time that I've used it and I'm happy with the purchase. I have a large pin oak in the front yard with the thin leaves and I have to get within a foot of the leaves to blow them out of the grass. Blowing big leaves is a piece of cake. Blowing a pile of wet leaves take a little more work. Moving dry leaves on pavement it effortless. On a half acre, the BR-200 is sufficient.If I was stronger, I'd get the BR-350 because I'd like the extra power. But I was not looking for something in that class. I was only interested in a light backpack that didn't hurt me.If you drive a 1-ton diesel, this blower is not for you. Get the BR-350 or bigger.If you think this may not be enough power and want a BR-350, don't doubt. Get the 350. If you want to show your annoying neighbor and his big Husky whose boss, get the BR-350 or bigger. If you want a great tool without all the weight, get this blower. It's awesome. September 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome backpack blower for the average home owner I got the BR 200 because it had features I was looking for that other same range models from other companies do not. First of all this blower looks amazing and has great sleek look to it with the bright orange. Another Stihl only sells at authorized dealers and the reps there help you get started with using it. Second it is small enough for the home owner but also had a carburetor that had high and low needle adjustments. A lot of other models did not have this feature so having the ability to fine tune it was a plus. Also it creates for having easy starts. Overall it is powerful enough for the home owner not expecting to blow big plies of leaves but mostly clippings and such other. So dont expect to be super strong. One thing I was effy on was that it is pricey and other bigger blowers out there are about $20.00 more than this one. So consider if its worth it to get bigger blowers that are also louder and heavier for the homeowner. Thanks Stihl!!! September 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light and Easy on the Wrists This smaller backpack blower is light, easy on the wrists, and very powerful. I've never enjoyed blowing off the property so much as I do now. I would highly recommend this for any home that has a substantial amount of blowing to do. Oh, it's pretty quiet too! September 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product for the money I like this blower. It is my first backpack style blower and I have to say it beats the regular blowers hands down. Only issue I am having is it seems to hesitate when I throttle up, almost like it chokes and then is fine. Otherwise no issues with this blower. I recommend it! September 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent investment! Great handling, lightweight, easy to start, and very efficient use of blower control - I could not be happier. All this and my warranty was doubled (to 4 yrs.) when I agreed to purchase/use their 2-cycle oil mixture, exclusively! I could not be happier with this product! September 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small but packs a bunch! This little blower does a great job on our porch and drive. I have even used it to blow stuff out of my shop... Can't go wrong with Stihl, even the smaller backpack is great! August 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best one so far Light and excellent piece of equipment powerful enough to do your home work August 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this blower! It's not the most powerful but I knew that going in. Does a great job and is light weight! Very good deal for the money. Blows off my circle drive in a snap...easy to handle and starts easy. Highly recommend!! July 30, 2016
