Being lucky enough to get my hands on one over a month ago thought would give little review on it.
First impression was impressed with build quality, weight, padding on straps etc. The side start pull cord is amazing being able to start from the hip without taking machine off.
This is a rather thirsty machine using full tank for roughly 1.5hours full throttle blowing. It is insanely powerful to the point the br430 doesn't even leave the van even on big jobs with two men.
Haven't found any negatives yet apart from sometimes can be too powerful when in smaller gardens blowing things over it shouldn't.
If you haven't ordered one of these then I strongly suggest you do as it has massively speeded up a lot of large blowing jobs to the point you could do two mans work alone in same time.
Will update this every few months with any faults etc.
