    Went to price out the Stihl BR420 and got a price for 429- . Looked at the BR 550 and it's 399-. Does anyone know why the BR 550 is cheaper???

    no idea.. Get the BR600 you wont regret it. I have one and love it try both of them out at the dealer before you buy and you will see the difference!

    My guess is they are trying to push the new 4-Mix.

    Do not get the 4-mix...the BR420 is tried and proven and is the very best all around blower considering the weight and the packaging. The unit will last you a long time. Some day they will get the reliability of the 4-mix up but still hearing about problem locally.
