Rated 5 out of 5 by from Starts every time My husband bought my stihl backpack blower for me 10 years ago. I have not had one issue with it . I turn it on choke it pull it three times turn the choke off and it starts right up . I would definitely recommend this backpack blower to anyone. And I never write reviews on anything .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great blower and I highly recommend it over a hand held This blower is very light (around 12lbs) very easy to start and has plenty of power (it will blow rocks from the driveway). The backpack is very comfortable and the vibration is minimal. The controls are well placed and easy to use. This unit is well balanced and there is virtually no fatigue from holding the control handle while blowing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
Date published: 2016-09-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where has this tool been all my life! First off, Many kudos to Rockledge Mowers. I ordered my unit and when it arrived, they called me. I Got there on a Saturday morning and it was all set up for me. They showed me how to use it and I was off and running. This blower is very easy to start, light weight for what it is, very easy to adjust, and man can it move some debris. It has cut my blowing and clean up time almost in half. Additionally, it just sips the fuel. I cant say enough about this product or Rockledge Mowers! Keep up the great work. I will be back for more Stihl power equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT BLOWER I've had this BR200 for three years and I gotta say, I love it!!! Very light, very powerful and easy to start. It does good for me in the fall for the clean-ups so I'll be buying STIHL products more often!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall, I ws surprised at how well this machine performed and was happy to get a small discount since it was a demo model. I was having a great season with my bg 55, but i got severe carpaltunnel. I mow lawns for a business, so this was a severe issue. However, i was at my stihl dealer one day, and i was looking around and I noticed a demo model of this machine. Since i needed a more wrist friendly solution, i bought this machine. Overall, I was very surprised at how quiet the br 200 is and how powerful it is for its size! I am looking forward to mowing again next season with a better blower!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best small consumer backpack I LOVE THIS BLOWER! even though it doesn't have easy 2 start, it is still very easy to start. it is very powerful, in fact, it can loosen wet embedded leaves. it is also SUPER light, so this is good for a gift to a older kid who loves landscaping, or older people. it also isn't 4-mix, so you don't have to adjust valves. i recommend for someone doing light maintinance to buy stihl motomix, or if you are a small landscaper, to use ethanol free gas with a high octane and mix it with stihl HP ultra oil. i recommend this blower for homeowners or landscapers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Easy to use Great machine, the anti-vibration works great, lightweight and easy to use. I bought the machine about two weeks ago, put 20-25 hours on it with no problems.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very disappointed I purchased my BR200 just over 1 year ago. I bought this model for 2 reasons #1 it was a Stihl #2 the price was right for an average working guy. I'm a Maintenance mechanic at a large health facility so utilizing & repairing equipment is all part of my job. I had read the reviews prior to purchasing & fully understood the fact that this model is known to be under powered. I used it lastseason burning 1 full gallon of ethanol free gas & using the HP Ultra oil. I had little to no problems other than it seemed to idle low & would occasionally cut out upon squeezing the throttle. During the summer I would use it to clear grass clipping and it always started on the second or third pull. I went to clear leavesfrom my property this fall using fresh gas and it seemed to be down on power (more than usual)and it got to the point where it just wouldn't come up to speed. I went to my local dealer, changed the spark plug and fuel filter and no change. I've got to say all of my equipment at work is Stihl & I seldom have issues but this model (BR200)has just been an overall disappointment. My suggestion to you would be to save up a little more money and go with a little higher model such as the 450.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Well Priced Blower Just bought this blower for home use. Was originally worried that it may be too small for our yard, but it's been fantastic! The fuel tank is huge, so you can operate the unit for an extended period of time without having to stop and add more fuel. In addition, it's nice and small and light weight. My wife loves using it and will go outside for hours playing around the house. Overall, cost, power, and Stihl quality make this a GREAT buy! Highly recommend....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from She loves it Big yard, new driveway, flowers everywhere... She leaves plenty of trimmings after her weekend gardening but hated the clean up. But NO, not anymore !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine I have a 2 acre yard that I keep up. This blower was a gift from my wife. It is light weight, as easy to start as my Stihl trimmer, and works just as good. I cannot say enough about my Sthil products. Super happy with this blower!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a homeowner I use this for 3 acres and it is perfect. It starts on the first pull everytime. It is able to blow leaves that are very deep. It is very comfortable to wear for hours at a time. I use ear muffs for hearing protection so sound is ok for me.
