I have a BR600 and it has been a good blower for the last 3 years. I do have some issues with it. 1. The PLASTIC where the straps go through at the bottom broke on one side. That is a piss poor design 2. It is lacking power. I am sure it needs a valve adjustment which I will do just before the leaves start falling. 3. SMALL gas tank. Runs out of fuel very quickly. Not sure I would buy another one to be honest.
