Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and easy to use! I really love the way this powerful, lightweight blower starts and keeps on running. This is an ideal piece of equipment for me and what I use it for. I have only had it for a short while, and so far I am very pleased. I'm looking forward to it giving me many years of trouble-free service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive So Far I have only had this blower for a couple of weeks, and have been using it for blowing Spring debris from our patio, sidewalk, and drive way. It is easy to use and has plenty of power for our needs. The 'safety' on the handle seems to be unnecessary and is a little awkward to engage.The true test will be in the Fall when we have to blow leaves in between service by the landscapers.It is a bit pricey, but I purchased it anyway because of the great experience I had with a small Stihl chain saw.Quality and Dependability are ranked at four stars because the blower has been in service for such a short period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product exceeds my expectations I own several Stihl gasoline powered products which are a mix gasoline and hand type tools. I consider all to be great products. I have resisted adding battery powered tools of any brand to my inventory assuming them would not deliver satisfactory performance when compared to my other tools. I have a large and very satisfactory gasoline blower from another manufacturer that does a great job, but it is inconvenient to use regularly. I looked at a number of the available battery blowers and found that the level of performance seems to be all over the place, even in comparably priced products. I decided to go with the Stihl product based on reviewers that stated they were impressed with the performance. I agree, this blower gets me through clean up after my lawn work with capacity to spare. In addition, I find myself using it for maintenance activities through the week that I would have done with a broom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right for my needs Still early but I am very pleased with the performance of this blower. I really like the fact that battery charging is very efficient. great product for my needs.
