Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does it all This blower / vac just eats it all up from pine needles to leaves, and with the gutter cleaning attachment it keeps me off the roof in the fall.Couldn't live without it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far I'm impressed with the Stihl products So the blower has alot of power. It seems built well.
Date published: 2018-07-10
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Breaks constantly Great little tool if it would stay operational for more than a few uses. Have 2 of them for our landscaping business (cleaning stairwells/gutters) and constantly have them in the shop because of the recoil spring breaking after a dozen or so pulls. Not worth buying again all because of a defective part that stihl hasn’t addressed, I’m told the same spring is also in a chainsaw of theirs that has the same issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good power We use this product for our bush timming claen up. It does well, could use a little redesigned work on the end of the inlet tube to be more round. Other than that great product. Its a stihl, what else would you expect. Nothing but the best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shredder in Small Package I have a very wooded lot in the South. Meaning I have just about every leafy thing imaginable in my yard. Anything from pine cones, ivy, chestnuts, hickory nuts, sticks and so much more. I was looking for a small blower i could work in between my flower beds. I purchased a cheaper unit which had a plastic shredder. The first hour I had broken the unit due to a smaller pine cone that was hidden in the leaves. So I made a rookie mistake. Took the unit back and got the more more expensive unit, which shredded very well and I've been very pleased worth the extra money for a simple upgrade. The only issue I have with this unit is the Bag quality is very poorly made. For those who are sucking up just leaves you'll not experience the same issue as i did. But for those who have small sticks and any pine cones the bag does not last long. I ended up re-sewing the zipper with stronger fishing line, which has worked so far.I still recommend to purchase this unit from the competitors simply to the great reliability of the unit versus the bad construction.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some good some bad Machine works great, but the bag attachment is poor quality or poor design. Bag is getting holes in it after first use of approximately 2 hours.
