BG 56 C-E
BG 56 C-E is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 351.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blower, reliable! Had a few now, truth is they really don't make them like they used to. Stihl is the best quality I've owned yet. Reliable starts, blows just as expected. Wish it blew a little more, but for the size what do you expect. It's light and the trigger is responsive. Hands down the best blower I've used in years and the quality is high. And they double down on their warranty if you buy their premix, that shows confidence in their quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Once started it performs flawlessly I would have given this blower a 5/5 but mine does not start the way the instructions stated. Once I figured out I didn't need the choke after the first stumbled start attempt, then it started easily and ran like a champ.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Actually quite disappointed I have had a competitor's gas leaf blower for years and LOVED IT. When it was time to get a new blower I heard great things about the American Made STIHL, so I purchased the BG 56 C-E. The moment I started the engine it rattled and did not run smoothly. I let it run for awhile hoping it would stop rattling after the engine warmed up. The rattling did not stop, so I took it back to the store. I was informed that the rattle was normal, and that many people who buy this blower say the same thing about the clanging sound the engine makes. It is very annoying to have paid a lot of money for this blower and it sounding like it is on it's last leg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blower for average yard work This blower starts easily and will handle most homeowner jobs. However, you will find more uses for it than you originally purchased it for. Now, I wished I had bought the bigger one for some bigger jobs. I will probably buy another one anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BG-56CE My BG-56CE is great. It starts fast in cold weather. This balance of the blower is right on. You can blow leafs all day long without you hand getting tired.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good blower, but like older version better I just purchased a new BG 56 and like it a lot, however, I had the previous version to this for many years and liked that better. The new version takes at least 15 attempts to get it to start and my old one started with 2-3 tries. I also miss the trigger lock the old version had, I don't understand why that was taken off, it is very handy.
