BR 600 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 507.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Blower, but could use some User Improvements Good Blower with good power, however it could be much better if Sthil made improvements to make it easier to put on to hold the straps together so they do not slide off your shoulders. I use a Carabiner Clip to hold straps together, once on.Also, once on, and the blower shuts off, you have to remove to start again. Stihl should modify the blower so it can be started while wearing it. Stihl should consider these updates...why have a good blower, when they could have an outstanding blower!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easey to start, really powerful I bought this blower because our vacation property gets ignored in the winter time and my 15 year old BR340 just took too long to blow all the wet leaves into the woods. Now my wife and I can double team the leaves and finish up in a couple of hours. This blower really has a lot of power and can push a lot of leaves. I really like that the blower doesn’t have a handle “on” switch, just pull and blow. I would highly recommend this blower if you have a large area to clean up. The only thing that would be nice is a chest strap, the blower keeps trying to slip off my left shoulder.This blower is fairly light considering the amount of power it has. I am 69 years old and have no problems using this blower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is an amazing combination of air speed and volume. The 600 has less cfm than the 700 but it makes up for it in air speed. The higher air speed helps it blow through piles of leaves by getting them to roll as you push them. I have used this blower with wet leaves and snow covered leaves and it powers through all of them, even half decayed, packed down leaves. Gathers all acorns and moderate sized sticks in its path. The higher air speed also allows for a more initial blast to get the objects in its way moving. The tube is lighter than the 700 and extends farther putting less strain from swinging side to side and allows the tune to get closer to the ground foe those that are taller. The tube allows for maximum flexibility, can even be rotated upwards or backwards with minimum resistance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good all around blower I have only had this blower for 2 months, but I can give you an idea of what to expect. First I would like to talk about power. This machine can blow wet, large piles of leaves with little effort. Second topic is noise. The noise did not seem loud to me, but I do wear ear protection muffs. Third topic is fuel efficiency. It seemed to consume a good amount of fuel but that is normal for a machine in this power category. Overall I am very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Machine I live on a large wooded lot with constant needs for clearing leaves and other debris. The BR 600 is so powerful and easy to use that I actually look forward to cleaning the yard. It starts easily, runs steadily, blows with authority, and can take on most challenges. I even used it to clear three inches of light snow from my sidewalk and cars. Do buy a noise canceling over the ear headset. All of that power makes some noise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful Great for blowing light snow. Powerful and comfortable. A little touchy starting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good blower for large jobs Overall good blower. Like the adjustability features. Need to add strap across the chest between the shoulder straps for long term use (similar to straps on backpacks for hiking).
