    Just bought a new Stihl BR600 blower today. The thing runs a little rough a full throttle. Dealer says that is normal and will go away once the blower warms up and goes through its first few tanks of fuel. For those of you who have the BR600, have you had a similar break in experience? I like the blower a lot....lightweight, powerful and very well designed. Thanks

    Sounds normal to me. I hope you are running a good 2stroke oil.

    Yeah, that is pretty amusing. Mine's a couple of years old now and it still hasn't broken.
