    After alot of reading and thought...I am almost decided on a Stihl blower to replace one of my aging Shindaiwa EB630's.

    A local dealer has a BR550 for $380 and a BR600 for just under $500. Is the 600 worth the extra cash? I do alot of leaf work and cleanups...so power is important to me. What do you think?

    I never owned a 550 but I do have 3 of the 600's. They are great machines. If it was me, I buy a little more power than what I needed instead of wishing that I did.
