BG 50
BG 50 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 497.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unreliable Start This blower is EXTREMELY unreliable when it comes to starting. It also stops working after about 15 minutes of work and won’t restart for about an hour. Hope you don’t have a large yard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right Best money I spent on equipment. EZ to use light weight, starts on second pull every time & I've used this for a year now. I maintain two camps & a home. Many leaves to collect, decks to clear & drivewats to keep clean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product is a decent gas blower I love everything about this blower except that it is difficult to start. Thought it was just me at first, but then had my husband try and he had a difficult time as well. Otherwise, once started it is a very good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value, quality and dependability. Stihl products last a long time and have the capacity to get the job done. Great value, quality and dependability. Stihl products last a long time and have the capacity to get the job done. Exceptional power for a smaller unit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It’s ok It’s not a bad blower, would be better if it didn’t take a long time to start. Ive owned other brands that would sit for months and start up after a few pulls, this one on average takes about 8-10 pulls every time I use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight Use this for blowing off roofs on construction jobs. Plenty of power. More powerful than any battery operated blower on the market and just as light weight. No complaints

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable leaf blower. I live in Minnesota so my blower sees a variety of weather conditions.From 80 above zero to 30 below this blower starts within the 3rd pull almost every time.My BG 50 has been so reliable I still have mine from 10+ years ago and have bought 2 more to give as presents for housewarming gifts. All perform flawlessly.My one piece of advice is to use ONLY non-oxygenated gasoline (if it is available).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent gas blower I have a small yard and the BG50 is the right gas blower for what I need in yard maintenance. It starts every time and has the power I need to move yard debris.
