BR 700 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 125.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best blower we've ever purchased This is the second BR 700 I have purchased. The first one we purchased late last year and were very satisfied with it's performance so much so that we purchased a second BR 700 late this summer in order to better handle the leaf season. The power of this blower is by far better than our older models and makes us much more productive especially in leaf season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unreal product Did alot of homework and watched a ton of videos. Was between 3 big blowers and finally pulled the trigger on the br700. Got it from a local dealer and brought it home on a day where it just got done raining for 2 days prior. We had driven over leafs in the road and they were packed down to the point I had no expectations of it working. Well this blower has no mercy for anything in it's path. Packed down wet leafs were no match. Our grass was alittle longer and when I was finished it looked like a hurricane hit the yard the grass was blown clean. Totally impressed. Only thing I will say negative is it does chew through fuel but I fully expect that. Well worth the money don't hesitate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This things a tempest... Just completed my first fall cleanup with this blower. Never had such a grin on my face clearing leaves. This thing is a tempest. Starts like a champ. Easily lifts and blows away even the wettest of leaves. Not too loud. Haven't had it long enough to comment on long-term durability but it handled my fall cleanup of 5+ acres without a blink. Works wonderfully for me, but I will say the unit is a bit large for my wife to handle. Just a few more CFM and I'm pretty sure she could use it for a jet pack. We both had lots of laughs at it blowing her around the yard. Great for pretending you're a superhero. Certainly wish it was cheaper, but you get what you pay for. Overall, exceptionally happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BR700 is Awesome I have two BR600 blowers that we have operated for years. I just could not resist getting more power. There is quite a bit more air flow and I have found it is taking less time to get the job done with the new BR700. When I am done with leaf season I guess I will be blowing snow off my cars and driveway with my new blower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent We purchased a BR 700 for our school. The campus has many pine and pecan trees and leaves and tree debris are a constant problem. The BR700 makes short work of parking lot clean up. It is light for its capacity and it moves leaves and sticks quickly and efficiently. This is an excellent tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine I purchased this blower after reading all the reviews & I have not been disappointed. I have been using a stihl BR340 that I've had for 13-14 years & it has run perfectly Everytime I've used it but it is just a little low on power for my size yard. I have a little over 5 acres that has over 100 mature trees & I'm surrounded on three sides by forest. This blower basically doubles what I'm able to do in the same amount of time. It starts quick & has plenty of power to move leaves. I have read reviews that mentioned a short run time with this unit. I'm experiencing 65 to 70 minutes run time at wide open throttle the entire time. Quite frankly after 65 minutes I'm ready for a few minutes break. I do use non ethanol fuel and the HP mix from Stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stihl BR 700 very powerful. cuts my raking down by 80+ %. instead of spending a whole day to a weekend raking up leaves i can clear my property in just a couple hours. also great for clearing light snow on your decks and driveway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful We live in the woods with many leafy trees. This machine takes a fraction of the time to clear the leaves, sticks and any other debris off the driveway and parking area that all other blowers we've had have taken. It has enough power on idle to blow the areas with just small amounts of debris! A little heavy, but distributed well on the back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very easy to start and use The 700 moves a lot of air, it takes less time to blow off leaves. light enough for my wife to use, and she can pull the cord to start it. Its nice to buy a product and have it work great every time you use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blower!! I was hesitant about the price. But this blower starts easy, is comfortable to carry, and it does a great job! I had a smaller blower that just helped a little. I have A LOT of leaves to clean up, wet ones behind buildings, sticks mixed in, big areas to move leaves. This thing does the job. I haven't lifted a rake yet this fall! I have no blisters as I usually do from raking. And I have cut my raking time by 1/3!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding blower. This is my third STIHL product and would not buy any other brand. Just bought this unit and it's excellent. Moves piles of leaves with pin point accuracy. Well worth the money. My first product was a pro 36 saw purchased in 1998 and STIHL runs like a champion. Buy the best and use it for life. If you are tired of inferior products it's a pleasure to know quality with STIHL

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Backpack Blower I live on three acres with a large amount of leaves. The large maple leaves trees is what I have. This blower packs a punch when blowing leaves when they are wet. It does the job well. The only thing that one might see as an issue is that it goes through fuel fairly quickly. But, that is what you get when you are dealing with the volume of air this blower pushes. It is a great blower. I highly recommend it for anyone with a large lot to maintain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Only have had this blower for a month, heavy leaves have not fallen yet but has done a great job with pine needles. Lots of power and easy to maneuver. Some said weight of pack would be a problem after a while but so far no problem

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BR 700 I bought this 3 weeks ago and couldn’t be happier. I sold my old Echo which did a great job, but nothing close to this. It moves leaves, kids, toys. It’s quite impressive. I did 20 mins of work in my neighbors yard that hasn’t been touched this fall just to try it out more. I should have traded up a while ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerfull easy start Only used on leaves so far-- and is up to the task for everything I have put it up against. Only thing is the strap across you chest is a must have since it tends to creep off your shoulders. This should be included as part of the standard features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hurricane in a can I will have to say this thing BLOWS and in a good way. It starts easy, but it's only 2 weeks old, the blowing power vs the weight ratio of the unit is VERY impressive, and the weight is normal for a 65 cc engine on your backPull the trigger and your shoulder is pushed back with the velocity of a NASCAR racer coming out of the nozzle at almost 200mph. I had the BR450, but took it back for the BR 700 because of the less weight and more power.Buy Sthil and shed a tear at the counter over yer wallet, but rest assure it's a BEAST.RELEASE DA HOUNDS!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time Saver I live out in the country and have a lot of trees in my yard. The BR700 reduced my leaf blowing time by more than half. Not only has it reduced my leaf blowing time, but it will blow black walnuts and chestnuts too, so I don't have to pick them up before leaf blowing, which saved me even more time. It starts easily and the controls are self explanatory. I'm 6ft tall and weight about 200lbs and notice that it's on the heavy side. Just something that I have to get used to. It also uses gas quicker than I expected especially if you use it in full throttle mode a lot. I also use it to clear dead leaves from around bushes and banks which will help stop black spot fungus. I find myself leave blowing way more frequently now, mostly because I'm amazed and how well it moves leaves and debris. I highly recommend this blower if you have a lot of leaves to move.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds like a duromax diesel!!! I have fought a war against a water oak the size of Kansas and the tonnage of acorns it would drop every year - it was like walking on marbles not to mention hard hat required in the fall, and oh the tiny pin oak leaves which are not a breeze to rake, blow, etc.... Swore I would never buy a home with a water oak unless it was neutered and didn't shed. I started out with a Stihl sh85 blower vac thinking I could blow them (acorns) in piles and then suck'em up. The sheer volume of the acorns was beyond the 85's paygrade. So I got a billy goat mv 650 - the leaves a piece of cake. The acorns beyond the goat's paygrade as well. Then I got smart and got a Stihl BR700. With the 700 on my back and the 85 in my other hand I could direct and move wheel barrel after wheel barrel worth of acorns. Leaves are a joke with this thing. I do highly recommend using a hand held blower in free hand to help guide leaves and acorns you would be amazed at how much more efficient you can be hearding leaves and acorns. I'm just a homeowner but I am a professional acorn, tiny oak leave, water oak hater. The 700 is powerful and can flat out move a pile in a hurry. Going on year two and it always starts up on pull one or two, and man it just sounds like a Diesel engine compared to any other Stihl I've run. Also the 700 is fantastic at clearing a path to your tree stand in the fall so you are not crunching leaves, breaking twigs, and spooking the deer..... need I say anything else.
