BR 700 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 85.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the only blower to buy!! I bought a BR700 about a year ago. In the typical Stihl tradition, it is a fantastic piece of equipment! It starts easy, blows hard, and isn't too heavy to wear for hours if you need to (I often have to wear it for 2-3 hours blowing leaves). If you are going to buy a backpack blower, don't skimp, buy this one. You will never be sorry!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this blower This product is awesome! Starts on a dime,a hair to heavy but more power usaully means alittle more weight,only thing i would change is the tip .wish it was alittle smaller for more direct flow,wet leaves are a pain!!! But all in all good buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best blower in the world! This blower is the best ive ever had in my career! I don't know why people are giving it negative reviews. It has the same engine as the 600 and I had a 600 for about 6 years and serviced it myself (im also a small engine machanic). It needed very little servicing in its lifespan, and I expect the same to be true for new 700! No valve problems foreseeable. Best power much better then any other backpack blower ive ever owned in every aspect. Love this blower, best investment ive ever made!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BR 550 and BR700 BR 550 ran good for like a year then it stopped running correctly they said warranty wouldn't cover :/ I think they fixed it and kept it for themselves????BR 770 ran for couple of months has to get fixed twice 200 dollars between both fixes and they didn't fix correctly amongst numerous stihl equipment I like stihl but the place I get it from can't fix correctly so it's just a waste of money . Same happens to my 2 x f56 and km 90, and my fs94. They just can't fix them at all Not even fair to me
