Rated 5 out of 5 by from POWERFUL It will literally blow the layer of grass off. My neighbor who is a landscaper has the backpack. This one is just as powerful, I use Stihl’s premixed gas, it starts the first pull every single time every time. My wife even uses it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok, but not as strong as I was expecting. Love easy start. I love STIHL, always have and its all I will buy.That being said, when I went to purchase a blower, I was looking for that happy medium between cost and power. I had finally landed in the 56cc. I mainly do my own property and both my neighbors as well as an occasional job elsewhere. I wish, for my purposes, that I would have gone with the size up. The easy start is absolutely wonderful, I have never owned a machine with easy start before and let me tell you, I am a fan. If you have never had something with easy start, I would definitely recommend you have one of the STIHL sales people start it for you and show you how to use it before purchase.Overall, in my opinion, I think this is a good machine. I have only had it for about a month so after about a year, if I remember, I will come back and add an update to this review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is very user friendly The Blower that I purchased one year ago has never given me any problems. The blower is easy to start and has a lot of power for being a small blower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BG56C rating after 1 year Very good blower, powerful. It’s a little heavy for my 12 year old boy but not for adults. Starts consistently, no problems but even I have difficulty starting it while upright so I put all my weight on it and pull the cord. It really should be easier to start. I can see myself headed toward better electric models as I get older cause this will be difficult to start when I’m in my 70s. I’ve noticed this about German engineering, they don’t put energy into making the user interface simple. They really don’t have far to go to improve it. Still, the blower is a very good product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Diffecult to restart Owned for about a month. Runs good, power is okay, but very difficult to restart if you put down for about 15 minutes. Yes I followed the restarting instructions. I'm new to easy pull/start. I'm also very experienced in using power tools of all kinds. This is not worth purchasing. As soon as i can find time I'm bringing this and a easy pull chain saw I purchased at the same time back to the dealer to discuss what cam be done. Including choking my pride and asking what I may be doing incorrectly. At least I followed the books instructions to the letter on restarting.
