    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.

    BG 50 Powerful Little Machine
    Finally got a Stihl blower, been wanting one for years and I'm not surprised with its performance, power and weight. Easy to start, lighter than any blower i've ever used and all the power in the world to do the job. Orange for Life. Great job STIHL.

    The best.
    I have had several leaf blowers. This is by far the best ever. I have had this unit for only a month. It is easy to start, nicely balanced, and it has a pleasant sound. I was surprised to find that most of my leaf blowing can be done from idle, no need for increased speed. I also enjoy the light weight, comfortably positioned trigger pull throttle, and wonderfully simple operation. Leaf blowing is fun now, something that I can enjoy, even look forward to. Good job STIHL, I really like it.

    Stihl BG50
    I have seen many reviews saying it was hard to start. I use this commercially and it was VERY hard to start for the first 10-15 lawns. Now that I have done about 200 lawns with it it starts in 2-3 pulls with ease. Also all you have to do to get it to throttle up is to ease onto the throttle. Overall it is a great blower and it is great for what it is.

    I love this blower!
    It's not the most powerful but I knew that going in. Does a great job and is light weight! Very good deal for the money. Blows off my circle drive in a snap...easy to handle and starts easy. Highly recommend!!

    this blower has good power
    I bought this in lieu of an Echo 500. My main reason was the weight, only being 12 pounds vs 22.doesn't have as much power, but for what I use it for it is perfect. Mainly I use it to dry off my cars when I wash them, and keep my property clean.it starts very easily,it will blow grass clippings and small piles of leaves easily. If you're looking to blow massive amounts of leaves this is not the blower for you. Overall I am very happy with this product.

    Best small consumer backpack
    I LOVE THIS BLOWER! even though it doesn't have easy 2 start, it is still very easy to start. it is very powerful, in fact, it can loosen wet embedded leaves. it is also SUPER light, so this is good for a gift to a older kid who loves landscaping, or older people. it also isn't 4-mix, so you don't have to adjust valves. i recommend for someone doing light maintinance to buy stihl motomix, or if you are a small landscaper, to use ethanol free gas with a high octane and mix it with stihl HP ultra ... read more oil. i recommend this blower for homeowners or landscapers!
