    Where has this tool been all my life!
    First off, Many kudos to Rockledge Mowers. I ordered my unit and when it arrived, they called me. I Got there on a Saturday morning and it was all set up for me. They showed me how to use it and I was off and running. This blower is very easy to start, light weight for what it is, very easy to adjust, and man can it move some debris. It has cut my blowing and clean up time almost in half. Additionally, it just sips the fuel. I cant say enough about this product or Rockledge Mowers! Keep up the ... read more great work. I will be back for more Stihl power equipment.

    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!

    Great home owner blower
    Is it a professional blower? No. Is it good for what it was designed for? Yes. It is light and efficient for home lawn maintenance. It is easy to move in and around bushes and trees. Much better than a hand held blower. Run time is 2 hours or more on one tank of gas, It moved a substantial amount of leafs with no back strain vibration numbness. Starts easily and never stalled. If you want a light easy to use back pack blower buy quality. Buy Stihl.

    great blower
    This is a great homeowner blower. If you still use any kind of corded blower...give it to your kids and buy this 1. It has started EVERY time in the last 2 years with NO problem. I use it about 10x MORE than my old corded because it's so fast and easy to use. Grab it, start it, use it, put it away. I have a house on a lake in TN which gets filled with about 1 foot of leaves on a 30 degree slope. Great to just walk around the property and blow the leaves down the hill.

    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.

    Great homeowner tool
    I'm impressed with how well it performs. I had in mind when I went to the dealer that I'd surly need something bigger and more powerful but my dealer didn't think so when I told him what I wanted to use it for and he was right on the money. I mostly use it to blow off the tractor and it's radiator after mowing 6 acres of turf and the landscaping around the house after mowing. I always use premium 91 octane (or higher) non ethanol gas and Stihl oil. Starts easy and runs smooth, light weight and ... read more easy to use for this old man. My typical run time would probably be 30 minutes once a week.

    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.

    This little blower packs a punch
    I was all set to go in and buy a BG55 and I walked in to find out it had been discontinued. The salesman said I would be even more impressed with the new BG50 and he was right. After trying to keep another heavier brand blower running for 15 years, this light powerful blower is a dream to use. It is easy to start and more powerful than my previous blower was. I should have bit the bullet years ago. From now on all my equipment will be Stihl.

    This product has more good qualities than bad.
    I bought my leaf blower in mid-summer last year. As far as the motor and the motor components, everything works as it should. The only problem I have had is that the extension attachment keeps falling off during use. I have taken good care of this machine, as I do with all my machines, but it continues to fall off when the trigger is engaged. I have stored it in my garage and out of the the weather since the day of purchased. I have never dropped it or banged it up at all. Even though it hasn't ... read more failed me on starting or running one time, I am a little disappointed with the quality of the extension. Besides that , great tool to have!!
