    I am considering a Stihl br600 blower. Ive read alot of good and bad about the 4 mix engines. For those of you that have ran at least 1 season, would you recommend one?

    Bought a four mix trimmer in the spring. Starts hard, sometimes not at all. Will quit running for no apparent reason. Took it back to the dealer and was told there was nothing wrong with it. Never again.

    After well over 20 years, I run with Stihl for saws and blowers.

    Would never buy anythig else.

    Two Rules:

    1. Alway use Stihl Oil/mix
    2. Use high test gas

    Never used Stihl oil mix and never ran high test. My 4 mixes still run great.:laugh: You might be throwing money away.
