Rated 2 out of 5 by Rarely runs properly I have had this blower for a few years and it has never run well. I have had it serviced, use exact fuel mixtures with Stihl oil and top grade gas an it stihl won't run. It is usually faster to use a broom. I no longer buy Stihl products as a result. April 15, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst Leaf Blower This leaf blower is very difficult to start. If you don't get it started on the first few pulls the engine gets flooded and will not start. After two years my blower will no longer start at all. April 15, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best blower i have owned for the money... I had this same Stihl blower for about 6 years and sold my house and traveled..when we settled back down and bought another house my Stihl yard tools were the very first thing I replaced. April 13, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Unreliable- floods easily/never know if it is going to start I have other Stihl products and love them, however, I would have to say this is the bottom of the barrel when it comes to homeowner grade blowers. If you don't get it started right away, forget it, it is flooded which is about 50% of the time. When it does start it boggs down at full throttle. I would recommend spending the extra $30 and go to the next level with the BG-56. It is very frustrating having a blower that you may or may not get started. Luckily, my local LM shop took it back and let me upgrade to the BG56 which is awesome. April 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lots of power in one small unit! I bought one of these blowers not very long ago, and already its leaving my old Homelite blower in the dust. Looking at the 55 you wouldn't think there would be a lot of power, but when that 27.2cc engine gets going, it blows great. The only problem with mine is that the handle came a little loose, which you can fix by adjusting the screws. Great product! March 24, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good for quick cleanup around the pool and driveway, not too noisy. Balky restarts. I waited til after the gulf coast leaf season to review this unit that I bought new last summer. I think its an Ok balance of power, weight, price, and noise. I use it for chasing the leaves off the pool deck and equipment area, driveway, and walks. Mostly I leave it on idle and it does fine with leaves and pine needles on concrete without noise. Cold starts are straightforward as manual describes. Forget about a warm restart if it stalls during task. Just will not restart... Put it away and come back later. I doubt that I will buy another with so many competitors out there. March 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth Every Penny!!!! For the money, this is Absolutely the BEST Blower on the market. For what the Spec.'s are for this model, I was pleasantly surprised at this Model's Power & Easy Start-up, & it will flat get-it-on. Best Bang for the buck.I owned a Lawn & Services for 38yrs. & This is the Model I use at My Own 2-lot home. Worth every penny. March 22, 2015
