Rated 5 out of 5 by Work well and a good value. It works well once you learn it is easily flooded with the bulb fuel feeder. September 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by VERY satisfied with the Stihl blower! This blower was purchased to replace 2 other brands which were very unsatisfactory. Neither would start unless you pulled your arm off!! The Stihl starts every time on the 3-4 pull. The power is great for any home application. Highly recommend Stihl for your first purchase and not waste time with other brands. September 7, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Would nor recomend this model This blower seems to only start when it wants, and it is hard to start when it does start. After it starts it seems like it runs great, I will be taking it back and see what they can do about the way it starts. And yes I did get the 2 cycle oil they recommended September 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by dependable for long time You can't go wrong with a Stihl product. You pay more upfront but less in the long run. I just wish the company would make some simple changes to help Joe customer. Dump the O/I switch. Make it an on/off switch. Put the word CHOKE on the equipment and the word RUN on the equipment. So many Stihl problems are from starting issues because people have it in the choke position too long thinking they have it in the run position. NEVER EVER CHOKE A STIHL FOR OVER THREE CRANKS OR YOU WILL BE EXTREMELY FRUSTRATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Simple changes to solves worlds of customer dissatisfaction. I asked the dealer who has sold these for years....What does the I and O stand for on the switch? He said I have no idea but I tell my customers the I means " I am ready to start it" so this would be the "on."You have to but the Stihl spark plug remover. $3.00, no other remover on the market works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Waste of money, hard to start I have owned other Stihl products and have been very satisfied, but not in this case. I bought this thing and used it the day I bought it. Ran fine. Got it out a week later and could barely get it started. It got progressively harder to start on each subsequent use. I changed the spark plug, changed the air and fuel filter, and ran properly mixed fuel. Nothing helped. I finally gave it to a homeless guy. Will not buy another Stihl blower. August 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Runs well when you ignore the directions The first couple times I used it, I had a hard time starting it. Turns out, it's easy to flood and once it is flooded it's very difficult to get started. You're almost guaranteed to flood it if you follow the directions on how to start it, namely locking the throttle in the full open position when trying to start. Once I figured out this quirk, it's been a good reliable machine. I've had it for about 2 months now and it gets weekly use. August 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Best purchase in 10 years Bought this due to reviews on the internet, and I'm glad I did!!!! Starts easy, runs like a top, and man, will it make short work of leaves and debris. It is obviously of high quality. Got it from a Stihl dealer, and they had it set up and gassed up, ready for use when I picked it up. LOVE IT!!!! August 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by All you need blower! I operate a tree company and this is the unit our crews use. I have bought two of these blowers in the past 10 years. Both still working full time on a tree crew. Guys like it because it is light and powerful. August 20, 2014
