Rated 3 out of 5 by Lacks power compared to older Stihl blowers I recently purchased 2 new Stihl blowers with the easy start option. They do start "easier" then the previous Stihl blowers I have owned but neither has the same power that I had come accustomed to. I would much prefer to have the added power back coupled with the easy start option. September 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good dependable leaf blower I have used this blower for about 2 months now and have been happy. Starts quickly, noise is not too bad and has sufficient power. The only thing I would like to see is a flat blower attachment to affix on to the end to concentrate the power. September 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to start Have bought other brand outdoor and lawn equipment. They never seem to last very long and/or hard to start or use. I bought the Stihl product for its reputation and ease of use. September 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent leaf blower! I bought this on a recommendation from the local Stihl dealer- Green Thumb. This blower starts easily, is comfortable to hold, and has more power than I really need.What I needed was a blower to clean off a large concrete area and long walkway that gets a lot of debris on it from trees. This blower "blew" through it in minutes.This is a solid unit made from quality materials and I really like the "Made in America" idea as well.The dealer gassed it up and tested it for me before I left.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Base model with big power I don't like to spend my money on tools that aren't worth it and this blower has proven to me it is money well spent. Light, dependable and able to complete all my residential tasks with ease. August 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Money well spent Has the power I need in a versatile lightweight product. I'm amazed at the quick easy start. I would recommend BG-56CE as a first choice even over the BG55 any day. July 28, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by trouble running at first Was not adjusted appropriately upon purchase. Tends to bog down when hitting the throttle. After 5 minutes of warm up, it runs quite well. Just needs a carb adjustment but should have been done before i left the store. Will adjust myself or take back in July 20, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by bg 56 c-e blower not so easy to start, my brother has a older model 55, which has more power and starts easier. July 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by BG 56 Blower This is a great blower...which I can say has been my experience with all Stihl products. It starts easily, has plenty of power for blowing grass and debris, and has not missed a lick. Highly recommended. July 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Absolutely flawless. I don't think I will buy another piece of lawn equipment unless it's a Still !!!. Milt's in St. Mary's Maryland is awesome. June 25, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by hard to start usually takes 15- 20 pulls to start. if you dont follow the recomended start procedure to the letter, forget about using it for a few hours. ive only used the stihl moto mix fuel in it since new. purchased on 5/15/15. I have run two full tanks of fuel through it. also it seem it does not want to make full power until it gets warmed up really well. June 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Light and amazing I have been doing landscaping for over a year for extra income besides my full time job. I have wanted a Stihl product for a while and my first purchase was this blower. My wife wanted me to buy a cheaper blower from Home Depot like a toro brand, after seeing all the issues other guys were having with other brands my decision was easy. The blower is alittle pricey but it started up on the first pull and I can't believe how light and powerful it is compared to other blowers. Also it is super quiet. Anyone can use this blower due to its lightweight. I always try to get the best. I believe Stihl is the best for landscaping. June 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best product at the best price Well constructed, easy to use and easy to service. Can not believe how popular this blower is and the extra two year warranty is outstanding. Thanks! June 18, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Let me down I have only had the blower for 6 months and used it about 4 hours total. It was hard to start from the first time I tried to crank it. Took it to the dealer and they determined it want not getting any fire to the spark plug. I know had to send it off for two to three weeks for service. I would have expected more from a stihl blower. I have two Stihl saws and weedeater that are great. June 11, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dependable blower!! It's blower is great!! I purchased it a year ago and have no complaints. It starts with little effort, it's easy to handle and it will move leaves and grass with ease. I recommend this to all my friends!!! May 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazingly smooth and powerful This is my second Stihl product (1st being a chainsaw). It is by far the easiest starting, smoothest running piece of equipment I own. My only regret is not having bought it sooner. Between it and my chainsaw I am convinced, if you meet a woman whose last name is Stihl, marry her! May 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bang for the buck I purchase Stihl because I want quality AND durability. I made the mistake of buying a lesser priced, heavier, competitor product, that lasted for only a few years. I was in a pinch to finish my lawn work and rushed to my local Stihl dealer to get a new lawn blower that I have wanted for some time. This blower is great, very powerful for it's lightweight profile. I personally like the design of the huge intake fan o n the side of the unit that really gulps in the air! Excellent product that I anticipate will last the rest of my life. And a big tip of my hat to Stihl for eschewing planned obsolescence and building indestructible power equipment! May 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally own a nice blower. I have a good amount of dirty trees and a yellow Lab that love to make a mess. I use my blower 5 to 7 times a week. I have owned four other blowers over the years, two of them "the other premium brand". Well they all sucked! Starting issues, running issues, parts falling off issues. None of them worked well for more than a season.I decided to try a Stihl. I brought it home gassed her up and it fired up after two pulls. The thing has a ridiculously good sounding engine. I'm a car guy and this thing sounds like a cammed up race blower. I love the sound!I was concerned about it not having a throttle hold lever. Sometimes you don't want full power but something in between. It really isn't an issue though. Idle has a nice velocity and full throttle has a great velocity. It really doesn't sound like it's blowing as hard as it is. It clears my yard up nicely.If you are considering a new blower don't bother with the other junk ot there, spend the extra 20 bucks and get a Stihl, you will love it! May 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works good Works good love using it in the garage living out in the country our road always has sand on it from the winter so there's always sand in the garage but not after I fire this hog up could almost eat off the floor after blowing it out May 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by top notch product I've always heard Stihl was a good product but never really gave it much thought on buying one I was content over the years buying the cheap store brand or the home center standers ... I got tired of having to replace them with in a year or two because of their cheap quality ..I got my first stihl and could not be happier starts first pull each and every time and the power is bar none the best ,,, I should have bought this product years ago instead of wasting money on all the other ones... May 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great blower that's easy to start This blower is AWSOME. It's easy to start and has plenty of power to blow the leaves out of the flower beds. Its light to carry around. Just an all around good blower. May 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to start Easy to start, runs a long time on tank of fuel. Love not having to use extension cord anymore. Love it. May 12, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2nd Stihl product in 2 years. New brand loylity Up until last year I never considered a Stihl. Last year I got the 56 weed trimmer, and this sold me on getting a new blower this year. This is a great product. It takes about 5 seconds to get warm, but then it purrs. I am proud to buy products built in the USA. May 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome blower I got sick of buying equipment that is hard to start and is hard to depend on. I turn to stihl for almost everything. Bought blower and it is great. Easy starting, great running, dependable, and time saving. Could not be happier with this product. April 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Blower I purchased the Stihl blower to avoid dragging an extension cord with the electric blower I had. I have several trees, lots of leaves and a long driveway to blow off. It works great and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. April 18, 2015
