Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light and easy to start I want to start off that I love stihl and I only run stihl so when I decided to get a blower I decided to get this one cause it's light and started easy. The one and only problem I have with the blower is for the first minte till it warms up it doesn't stay running when you give it throttle. Went to my local dealer were I got it and he said that's how the bg50 is. After it warms up its a great blower. It's light great power for the size and starts very easy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It has a problem after less than a year Started & worked great for a little less than a year. Then the problem began.When it starts & runs & gets warm the engine slows down & speeds up several times until it finally dies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent, reliable blower I have used my Stihl blower for over 10 years and it has been reliable the whole time even though I do minimal maintenance on it. I purchased this blower based on a Consumer Reports recommendation and am glad I did. It is excellent for cleaning gutters, blowing leaves etc. It consistently starts with just a couple of pulls even after it's been sitting unused for a long time. I wish I had bought a Stihl chainsaw as the Craftsman I own isn't nearly as reliable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Needs upgrades and runs sluggish 1. The air flow comes in from the side of the blower which when I put it in my left hand it tries to suck my pants leg into the blower, very aggravating! Don't know why stihl doesn't make a blower that sucks air from the bottom! Also when I try to increase the speed it bogs down and cuts off! Piece of junk!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fall Clean Up Has Never Been Easier! I purchased my BG50 from my local dealer about a month ago. I use to dread doing fall clean up, and now thanks to my BG50 it is no longer something I dread doing. The blower is great for everything, leaf clean up, blowing your gutters clean, blowing the driveway and side walks. I can't wait to even blow some light snow with it. Thanks Stihl!!!
