Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time Sthil purchase Great power for a light weight blower. Two complaints can't find attachments and is a bit difficult to start when it's cold.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little sluggish on start-up Great value and product. It is a little sluggish on start-up but quickly smooths out. Good power, light weight and easy to use. I may just need to return to the dealer for a minor adjustment, but overall am very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, lightweight A friend of mine brought his BG 50 to the camp ground we were at last October, and asked me if I wanted to use it to blow the leaves off of my campsite, so I did , and was so impressed with the way it worked, and the low price I went and bought one once I got home. I am glad I did, it starts easy and has more than enough power to blow away what I need it for, clearing my driveway and yard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and easy to use blower Nice and light. Easy to tote around, clean-up the driveway, gutters and yard. The kill switch is easily bumped during operation. Strongly recommend a guard or bump on the handle to prevent accidental killing of engine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Really love this blower. First Stihl brand item I have ever owned and It's great. Starts perfectly, tons of power and very lightweight. I'm going today to buy a Stihl weed eater.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hard to start This blower has a great reputation but I think I got the mutt?? Very hard to start. Spits and sputters for several minutes before it will stay running. Not so great for the money as could have bought 2 similar less quality blowers at the big box stores that work the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sthil 50bg Really nice blower for the price. Has good power. Starts on 2nd pull. Feels like a quality build. I would recommend to anyone. It's a little heavy on gas consumption but not terrible.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sluggish to start Works great after the nightmare of cranking it. Starting doing this after two uses. I'll be taking it to dealer this weekend for service.
