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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to opperate The bg 55 is a great blower for the price you pay. I have had no problems with it. The one i use is 5 years old and i liked it so much i bought my father in law one this spring. This is a good quality blower and is inexpensive to maintain. July 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A STIHL convert I absolutely love this blower! It's light, easy to start, and does a terrific job blowing the leaves, grass clippings, and twigs off my driveway. I haven't had the chance to do leaf blowing from the landscaping yet, but I have faith that it will do the job. I will be purchasing other STIHL products as the need arises! July 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A solid basic blower Once I've had this blower for more than one season, I'll be able to comment on its value and will know then whether to recommend it to others.I have had my BG55 for a little longer than a month and love it. It usually warms up quickly and runs strong. It's easy on gas--one tank usually lasts me a few trips around the yard. I wish the trigger didn't recess into the handle--it can pinch some people's fingers, but I use the push-button lock and keep it at full throttle when clearing off the sidewalk and drive ways. The round nozzle that comes standard with the BG55 is great for blowing grass off pavement and cleaning out roof gutters. At first, starting the blower was tricky for me. Once you understand the sound of the motor starting, it's easy. As soon as I hear that first burp out of the motor, I take off the choke and pull the cord twice more for it to start. Almost always, now that the engine is broken in, it takes four pulls to start, but since the cord is easy to pull, it's no problem for me. I appreciate the consistency. July 10, 2014
