    huh? not everything is perfect in this world. just kiddin. but you can either take it all the way off or take the right shoulder strap off and reach around to the cord... if you're coordinated enough.

    if you buy a stihl you wont have that!! but in all seriousness a brand new backpack shouldnt die on you unless its out of gas. which you'd have to take it off anyways.

    Starting isn't a problem with the BR600. If it ever gets hard to turn over have the valves adjusted. But this isn't needed until like after two seasons. Great units and very powerfull. Customers running these machines for three seasons now, one came in yesterday never had any service. Quick valve adjustment and new filters and spark plugs, throttle cable adjustment and back out the door like a new one. Landscapers in my area love these units power and their comfort.

    So is it going to be worth it for me to up grade from a handheld Stihl to a one of the backpack blowers? I use the BG 85

    +1!!!! night and day difference. I gave my handheld to my dad for his house. you'll never want anything but a 60cc or bigger, once you've had one..

    Go with the BR600. And once you use it once, you will never want to go back to a handheld ever again.
