Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, Reliable Blower for the Money Great, dependable blower for small to medium jobs, especially for the money. It's very easy to start if you follow the instructions for starting and for maintaining during storage. I've had this blower for two seasons, and I have not had any problems whatsoever. My house is surrounded by trees, and we get a lot of leaves each fall and winter. This blower isn't the most powerful, but it gets the job done with a little extra time. It doesn't blow away my mulch and gravel along with the leaves, and it is very easy to use and maintain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This blower is very powerful I bought this product during Stihl Days at a great price and I highly recommend this product. I have had it for more than a year with no issues at all. I took my son to buy one today.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good blower Pretty good value for a smaller blower. Love Stihl products. This blower starts a little slower than the multi tool I have, but once it's running it does a really nice job for the typical home use. I do recommend this blower for the smaller home use - larger jobs maybe not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Lightweight and easy to use. Great investment for a quality product. The fuel tank is small but it is small.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very hard to start Started just fine at the store. Got it home and took 10 minutes to start it. Would not run if not fully choked. Very disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Change owners manual When I read the owners manual and attempted to start I flooded it. So back to the dealer I went. The tech told me don't listen to the owners manual, here's how to start it. Haven't had a problem since. DO NOT HOLD THROTTLE when trying to start it. It will flood and you must clean spark plug if you ever want it to start. After learning that I'm quite happy with its performance
