Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST BLOWER BEST FOR YOU BUCKS... GOOD BR 200 GAS BACKPACK BLOWER I HAD FOR HALF A SEASON .....BEST BRAND I EVER USED LAST BETTER THEN OTHER BRANDS MAY COST MORE BUT WILL LAST FOR YEARS

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All but one thing, but it is a frustrating thing. Starts easily every time, excellent power, comfortable and easy to use. The blower tube slides on and is held in place only by friction. Every 10 minutes or so, the tube slides off (or is blown off, I don't know which), so you have to stop, pick it up, and slide it back into place, a serious design flaw This impacts both the quality and value ratings, which would otherwise be Excellent across the board.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Chokes out when attempting full power This product is difficult to start and must be run on partial choke. Will be returning for service after only 3 weeks. Purchased a saw 3 years ago that technician finally got adjusted properly this Spring. Hopefully that is not the case with this blower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little blower I really like this smaller backpack blower. It's a breeze to carry and is plenty powerful for most yard needs. Starts and runs great. Definitely need ear protection. My 10 year old was able to use it no problem, new chore for him, one he likes. If your not using your blower commercially or for a larger property, the BR 200 is a great blower alk around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a decent little blower I bought this blower in the spring of 2017 and i primarily use it for blowing grass off sidewalks. but of course i live in the northeastern area of the US and come the autumn and this little blower made very easy work of blowing major amounts of leaves from on side of my yard to the street or on to a tarp. My only complante of this blower that i wish that it had a bit bigger of an engine, so that i could easily blow wet leaves the kind that been stuck to the grass or mulch beds for a couple days. thats its only weakness!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the homeowner on larger lots larger lot over 1 acre heavy leaves every year perfect for the homeowner who cant run electric cords everywhere

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is great for what it is intended for. I bought it to use at work to blow material and dust into a smaller area to be able to sweep up. We have a big floor with many machines and fixed air lines to get material out from under them. The only hard thing is that you can't blow it into a really small area because it blows it over to the area you have already done. So its a learning curve. I also needed an extention tube to blow out from under big machines because the lack of power. It has plenty of power in the open just not in large spaces under things, so I got by with taping a tube we had laying around on it and it worked great.
