Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to start Very hard to start. The guy at Sutherland’s where I bought it had a hard time starting it. He said it was because it was new. Sure hasn’t got any easier to start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for I was using an electric powered blower and my house needs sweeping almost everyday due to the many trees so I was looking for something portable, compact, strong and dependable. This gas blower has it all and so far I am very happy with it and for the price it was well worth it. I have a big yard and carrying the electrical cord was getting annoying at times not being able to reach and not having the freedom to move freely. Since the purchase and from when I first turned it on it has not failed me and has always performed he same when I have used it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice product Not a bad blower. Air flow is ok but could be better if curved attachment was available. This would direct the air better. I cannot find a curved attachment for the tube. No one at dealer has been able to help nor can I find one on the website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The blower that keeps on blowing! I have had this blower for well over 20 years and it still runs just like it did when I got it. It has been through very heavy usage on a year around basis with very little maintenance. Basically I just Put gas in it and use it. I can’t say enough good about this product. If you want a good all-around blower that will last And give you a dependable start this is your blower!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as the BG55, this is a poor replacement, less blowing power I had a BG55 after 4 years it's bearings went out and needed to be replaced I was sold the BG50 as though it was the same thing. BUT IT'S NOT, Where's the trigger lock, why no eyelets on the handle for a strap . Seems to only have about 2/3 the power of the BG55. Had I realized that these changes had been made I would not have bought this blower

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Blower I ever had Got the BG50 to do yard clean up. I find new uses for it every day, from blowing grass and leaves in the summer to cleaning snow off in the winter. Even blow the combine off this fall and clean grain bins. Don't go to the box stores when Stihl has all the power you need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance for homeowner. Ease of starting and powerful enough to handle task around the house. Glad I bought a STIHL instead of an off brand at the local home improvement store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right blower! I purchased this blower in addition to my Stihl BR420 backpack blower because of its light weight. It is easy to handle and get into cramped places around my house but has power that rivals much heavier blowers. It cranks easily and has adequate fuel capacity. By the time it runs out of fuel, I am ready for a break.
