  • Professional quality blower

    Jan 17, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Powerful, easy to start, STIHL quality and service, did I mention it's REALLY POWERFUL?!
    Cons: Gets a little heavy after a while, somewhat expensive

    Summary: When we moved in May of 2006, I never could have dreamed the volume of leaves I would have to rake in our new back yard. After a weekend of raking, I decided I needed a leaf blower. The next weekend, my father in law brought over his new, hand-held ... read more

    Pros: It blows air well when you can get it to run.
    Cons: It is expensive
    It is a gas guzzler
    It is not comfortable or ergonomic
    It rarely starts

    Summary: This time I was going to buy something good.  No more of that cheap junk.  Anyway they moved production of all that stuff to China anyway.  No, this time I was going to buy some genoowine Made in USA stuff like Stihl advertises.  And ... read more

    Pros: Freekin awesome power at the homeowner level, nice weight, and looks very nice.
    Cons: HARD TO START!!!  High Price, USES LOADS OF GAS, pipe will blow out sometimes.

    Summary: I bought the BR 380 because I am tired of throwing my hard earned money down the tubes for stuff that only lasts a few years at best from the big box stores.  So I drove down to my local ACE Hardware and spent $380 on this unit.  This blower is ... read more

  • Great Blower for a Professional

    Pros: Professional power, comfortable, great price. As always the Stihl quality.
    Cons: Hard to start, guzzles gas, not enough power for large loads of leaves

    Summary: Let me start by saying that I run a landscape company in the Florida area. We use these blowers quite differently than up north.I bought the BR 380 in October. We use it daily to clean up large, thick, sometimes wet piles of freshly cut grass ... read more

    Pros: NothingNothingNothingNothingNothing Nothing Nothing Nothing
    Cons: Will not start. Will not start. Will not start. Will not start.

    Summary: This is by far, the undisputed champion of "Hard To Start". I'm very disappointed in this unit, and will "Never Again" purchase anything by Stihl. For the cost of these machines, and to have it perform as it does, i suggest you run far and fast away from ... read more

    Pros: powerful
    Cons: extremely difficult to start
    heavy
    expensive

    Summary: I bought this unit because it was recommended as a quality brand.  The stihl dealer recommended the 380 over the new 400 series as it is apparently more reliable.  I have found this unit to be extremely difficult to start.  Once it floods ... read more

    Pros: Adequate power for private use. Good design and weight distribution.
    Cons: Throttle trigger mechanism is cheap and unreliable. High cost. Questionable quality.

    Summary: I purchased a Stihl BR380 just over a year ago and have used it for approximately 10 times cleaning the leaves off my 3 ac. lot. The throttle trigger mechanism has alway had a delay engaging the engine and then broke altogether without warning. ... read more
