Well I was wondering when my cub cadet blower would die. It finaly did, so now I am the proud owner of a brand new stihl br600. I knew some one will ask, it was $479 and I'll post pics tomorrow. I still get a laugh about the pics tho, cause they all look the same. But what ever. I bout the br600 today and used it on my last lawn for the day, that thing is a beast. It weighs a ton, but holy moly at the power, on full throttle I can feel it torqing on my back in the shock absorbers. Can't wait for the leaves to fall so I can see how well it works on big piles. BTW it was because of the raves about the BR600 I read on LS is why I got it. and I am happy I did.
