    For the past four seasons I have been using 2 of the 420c. I am amazed at the difference in power. Wish I had bought one when they first came out.

    I love my BR600, really a big improvement over my homeowner level Fradan, which is now a backup. Love blowing foot deep, soaking wet leaves around like they're dry...

    I'm really impressed with mine. I upgraded from a BG85 for the BR 600 and I wish I would have bought one a long time ago.

    I just bought one about three weeks ago. I absolutely fell in love w/ mine the first time I used it. Going from my husq. to the br600, seems like your just waisting time and not gettin squat done. Cant wait till I will be running multiple br's.

    The sound was so much different that I thought it was not running properly for the first 10 minutes or so.

    If you like the 600 wait til you try the Redmax 8001. A lot more power.

    I've had a BR600 since they first came out. To tell the truth, I knew it was powerful but I never really knew how powerful, until a friend of mine with a BR400 said he didn't think there was much difference. So we took a 3ft long 4x4 and laid it in my driveway. My friend with the 400 stepped up and tried to blow it from 4ft away. It didn't budge. My other friend thought his Echo PB751 would roll it down the drive. He rolled it a few feet. Then I stepped up with the BR600 and rolled it almost 8 ft. The reason that most people think the BR600 aren't very powerful is because they don't sound like they're doing much. In reality the BR600's are far superior IMHO!
