Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy starter assembly Pull cord kept getting stuck and wouldn’t retract . Took it in to get fixed, happened again, fixed it myself and it lasted maybe a month. I then went back to the dealer for ANOTHER starter coil, and low and behold it bent again on the 2nd pull. I learned to pull the cord more gently the first time it happened but that didn’t seem to help, it’s just an easy start aka "flimsy” there’s no reason they shouldn’t be able to make a more heavy duty spring. Spend your money elsewhere if you’re looking for a reliable blower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sold on STIHL Just like the chain saw I also purchased in 2017, the ease of starting and operating of the BG 56 blower is great. both run without any sputtering or fear of stalling out. Always run with 89 octane gasoline in the the mixture, in ALL of your outdoor equipment and you'll have no issues. I won't hesitate to buy STIHL or from Akron Tractor & Equipment again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from PERCEIVED FAIR POWER. REPLACED A BG55 - NEW MODEL DOES NOT SEEM TO HAVE SAME POWER / AIR DISCHARGE AS THE BG55 AND AS SUCH PRICE POINT SEEMS HIGH RELATIVE TO OTHER MANUFACTURERS SIMILAR MACHINES.
