Rated 1 out of 5 by DISAPPOINTED IN STIHL I bought a bg55 last October for myself, used it fine until july of this year. in may of this year I bought my 18 year old son who mows lawns in the summer a bg56 for his bday, in july his pull mechanism broke in numerous pieces, at the same time my bg55 would not accelerate up over an idle, took both into feldmans in liberty mo to get repaired, after purchasing 2 stihl leaf blowers i was blowing off my leaves with my lawn mower, I have taken my bg55 back twice now and getting ready as we speak to spend my lunch hour taking it back again because it still will not accerlate up past an idle...keep in mind I have two stihl chainsaws and a stihl weedeater, ive always spoke very highly of your brand until now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Quick and easy starts! Great lightweight blower. Starts very easy every time. Adequate power. Works very well. Wish it came in a left handed version. Have to hold it out from you a little or it will suck in your pants. I'm learning to hold it right handed. September 12, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent blower,easy to start, idles like a dream. My second Stihl blower and this one is the best. I love the new machine, a bit easier to start than the old BG 55. Hope it lasts as long as the BG 55, six years without any problem, even a spark plug. September 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Starts quickly and runs great. Surprisingly efficient on gas! Very pleased. This blower is lightweight, starts on first or second pull and supplies all the blowing power I need for my yard. I am pleasantly surprised by how efficient it is on gas. Had it for a month and still using the tank I received from the dealer. I am NOT missing unrolling the cord I used for my electric blower! Great value and great machine! September 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent piece of equipment. I was really pleased with my first Stihl blower , but someone used in-oiled gas in it and ruined it. So I went right out and bought another one. Easy start good power. September 5, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Substandard Lacks power and is unusually noisy. Product's quality seems to be below that of similar blowers. September 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy Starting The new starting technique is a breeze and it starts quickly and easily whether cold or hot. My old model was about 12 or more years old and finally just gave out. Love the new one and glad to have B & B Outdoor Power as my go to dealer. September 2, 2016
