Rated 5 out of 5 by Stihl blowers are the best I've had many blowers and by far Stihl is the best. I own the lightweight backpack and an 11 yr. old hand held Stihl which is still running strong. This new one runs great & runs longer on a tank of gas. April 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by QUALITY BLOWER - WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG After purchasing several of the big box blowers and being disappointed with the quality and results, I purchased the Stilh BC 56 C-E. The quality of this machine is impressive. I chose the BC 56 C-E because of the claim of easy starting as I have a chronic shoulder problem. The blower easily starts on either the first or second pull. The power is adequate for homeowner use and the weight is not too cumbersome. It is designed to be operated with the right hand as operating it with the left hand interferes with the air intake. The machine uses very little fuel but is a little noisier than other blowers. All in all a quality tool and indicative of the adage "you get what you pay for." March 30, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good little blower As a landscaper had a bg 55 for small end of day light blowing, machine worked great and was dependable. So I bought the bg 56 one for the house figuring it wold be better. Same thing but I miss the trigger lock. Missing a feature, same engine but costs more? March 19, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to start I like the over all blower and it is easy to start and run. Has been the best blower I have owned . February 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This blower is very lightweight I have had this blower for four years and use it all 12 months of the year. Even today you can prime it, choke it, an guaranteed to start on the third pull every time. Just remember always use Stihl synthetic oil and I also recommend to always use a non-ethanol fuel with at least an 89 octane level. I have three other Stihl products and use the same fuel for all of them and have had them for problems. One more thing. When using Stihl products, always spend a couple more $$$ and use Stihl trimmer line, Stihl bar oil, and as I said earlier use Stihl synthetic fuel oil. Don't cut corners because it is not just a tool,it is an investment. February 23, 2016
