Rated 5 out of 5 by Stihl fan Exactly what I wanted from a blower. Starts every time and very low maintance. July 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful but light Easy to start, runs well. Plenty of power and reasonably light in weight. My first Stihl. Good purchase! July 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good blower at a decent price I like just about everything about this machine. For the price you can't beat it. You get a name brand machine that is easy to start and has enough power for the average home owner with typical uses for a small hand held blower.I have not had a problem starting it and it usually takes about 5 pulls to get started (can't say I've ever needed more really.) 2 after priming and another 2, maybe 3, after you begin to hear the engine try to start and have taken the choke off. Easy really, love it.The only annoyance is the power, I wish it had a little more. The BG 55 has plenty of power if all your doing is cleaning leaves, sticks, and grass clippings off the drive and walk. Unfortunately I've been spoiled and have used other equipment (Redmax) handhelds and though I know thoes are bigger, heavier duty (professional grade) units, the BG 55 by Sthil just leaves a lot to still be desired if you're planning on doing any heavy cleanup. Your going to need a bigger model. July 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent addition to your collection of power tools. The BG 55 has been a nice addition to my power tools for our home. Easy to start and more than powerful enough. The vac attachment works well and gives you the opportunity to shredding leaves for mulch. July 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dependable Leaf Blower Had this model since 2010 and has never failed me. Just followed the starting procedure from the dealership and read the manual. I've also used TruFuel all the time. I have not changed the fuel body filter, cleaned the air cleaner or changed out the spark plug since but I think I'm way bellow the 100 hour limit. My previous leaf blower was a Poulan Pro B200 which only lasted 4 years. Hope to use this for a long time. July 21, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by To hard to start Blows hard if you can get it started. Bought a stihl blower because of the blowing power and the company name but very disappointed. July 19, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Impossible to Start I bought one of these and could not get it started. Brought it back and the employees at the store couldn't start it either. They gave me a new one. The new one started the first few times and now it won't start again. Twenty pulls and no start. I read and follow the instructions precisely. It's been two weeks since I last used this blower because each day I try to start it to no avail. This is the first and last Stihl product I will buy. July 18, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by What a waste of money and time. DO NOT BUY! Maybe if I could get it started I could rate! Thing has done nothing but leak gas on my garage floor for the past three days. I've had a Homelite for 15 years, finally quit working, this one doesn't start either. It's a waste of time to go to the store to buy and money. Will never buy another Stihl product again.
