    Just used a Stihl BR 600 leaf blower, it works great, has a small nozzle and seems to really move soaking wet, packed oak leaves very well. Example, i ended up having a pile of these leaves knee deep, and i was able to still lift and cut through then to move them to the curb. I like the small nozzle, for this purpose. Now, has anyone ''choked'' down the nozzle on a BR 700 leaf blower to effectively "choke'' the bigger nozzle down to the size of a BR 600 nozzle? I'm thinking this would make the BR 700 a really super effective blower of really wet, packed leaves. Any thoughts?? lets hear them, i'm sitting on the fence about buying a BR 600 over the BR 700 at this point. thanks

    The BR 700 has a small flat nozzle, a other one as the BR 600. The flat one for the BR 700 would be the
    4282 708 6304.

    Late reply but for anyone else paying attention. The br450 tip fits on a br700 nozzle. I do this with mine on occasion and haven’t had overspeed problems but it’s something to watch out for. Definitely turns it into a little scalpel
