Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff - much improved This is an improved version of the previous model which I used and abused for many years. I think the ergonomics are better but the big deal is it's easy to start and runs strong without a lot of warm up. Also the fuel cap is a huge improvement. Overall I'm very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy start, very fuel efficient I made the move to a gas powered blower when I moved to an acre of land and didn't have enough extension cords to run my electric blower. This was a great investment. I chose the BG 56 over the BG 50 because even though the same size engine, this one has an automatic choke and easy-pull cord, which makes it very quick and simple to get started. I love a throttle so I can vary the airspeed, something I couldn't do on the electric blower- makes it very easy to throttle down to idle to blow out the plants around the house without causing them any damage. I can also now easily carry this on the roof to blow it off and quickly clean out my gutter. Also, I haven't bought any attachments but the BG56 also accepts different nozzle attachments, which will be my next purchase. While a little heavier than the electric, it is well balanced and easy for me or my wife to use. I was also surprised to find that I can blow off my whole yard on one tank of fuel- even though the tank is small this thing barely sips the fuel. One thing to be aware of is that the air intake is on the right-hand side of the engine, so if held in your left hand and you hold it close to your body you might suck your pants up to it. Not a problem, but something to be aware of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STARTS AND RUNS AS ADVERTISED No more setting the choke. This blower has one start setting, then the choke goes off. Engine kill switch is a one push and off button. No more holding switch until it quits. Blower has plenty of velocity and converts to vac easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I used it 2 weekends in a row moving leaves preparing for a large yard sale. Used 4 tanks of fuel and it did a great job.
