Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this because of the brand. I had to have the cam wheel replaced with very few ( under 50) hours on the blower. Very disappointed to find this is a known problem with this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does a great job I upgraded to a BR 600 after using (still using) a BR 400 for 20 years. I had contemplated looking at a Husqvarna 750 and it felt like I had a Volkswagen on my back and sounded like it had no muffler. Don't be afraid of the 4 mix. Is quiet and lots of power on wet or dry leaves. All my power tools are Stihl and it's nice to go back to the dealer you purchased it from instead of a major box store or online purchase. Starts with one pull and is quieter than most other back pack blowers.
