Rated 5 out of 5 by great homeowner leaf blower This blower is a must have for home owners. fairly light with enough power to blow wet leaves into a pile. easy to start just prime the carb about 4 times, don't over prime as this will flood the carb, and your set to go. i always use the stihl premix fuel as it contains no ethanol. i want to thank my dealer John Sorola for good advise. i recommend this leaf blower to homeowners.

Rated 2 out of 5 by This product is poor Where's the power.. My 25 HP boat has more wind blowing in my face at 20 mph than this blower at full throttle.. Very poor.. And I used to be a service tech for stihl products years ago.. Bought this yesterday at the same store I used to work at 20 years ago.. Really gone downhill.. October 23, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Simple starting procedure. I use it on a daily basis to blow a large amount leaves from my yard. It is well balanced and fairly light to prevent fatigue. It has plenty of power to move large piles of leaves. Although starting procedures are simple, it still will take 6 pulls of the rope to start it. October 13, 2016

Rated 4 out of 5 by Powerful and Lightweight One season down, no issues. Impressive power. Will blow wet grass off the driveway, wow. high volume. I Like the intake on the outside (right handed) so it doesn't suck your pant leg in. Its a different class of garden tool altogether. You can tell by its smooth idle, and when rpm drops it sounds like a motorcycle (ring, ding, ding,) if you catch my drift. It has that big engine quality. Takes about 1 minute to warm up, cold choke works great, Only gripe is the half choke when warm, takes several pulls to restart. Had a different major brand before and never would start, ever. I Run Stihl premixed or equal always. October 8, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Lightweight, easy to carry, adequate power I bought this to replace my BG-85 of about 10 years. I decided on this because it was rated very close to the bg-86 in power, however after using it, I wish I had purchased the more powerful model. It works very well and is easy to start. I am sure it will last me many years. I've been very happy with my Stihl products and their quality. October 8, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by So far, so good! I really like my BG56. The power is great, and it is easily used! My only issue is that it takes 5 or more pulls to start, and it takes about 5 minutes to be fully warmed up. Other than those concerns, I like the blower! October 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great - like all my other Stihl products I'm now sold on Stihl products - chain saws, trimmers, and now my leaf blower. It's powerful - but quiet. In fact it seems to run at a lower RPM than other brands - at first this is bewildering, but you really get a sense of its power when you run them side-by-side. Despite having a lower CFM, the airspeed is much higher - the result is that I move more leafs (the other product advertised almost exclusively on the CFM). October 5, 2016
