Rated 2 out of 5 by from It is in the shop too much I have had this blower for 2 years and have had to have a carburetor put on and it is in the shop now where it has been for 10 days and they just today figured out what was wrong with it now have to order parts and then they tell me I will have to wait 24 hours after the repair to run it. I will be looking for another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did I wait 20 years to purchase this blower? Hand's down - the most effective leaf and yard debris blower I've ever owned. I cannot explain why for 20 years I relied first upon a plug in electric device (functioned satisfactorily but cumbersome with the cord) and more recently a rechargeable (air volume like a gentle breeze). It probably is due to the fact that (a) I thought 2 stroke engines fuel/oil mixing were a pain in the a-- and (ii) that Stihl products were out of my budget. Shame on me. This is an incredibly effective, easy to use yard tool. I've been using it daily just for the fun of it. Using the pre-mixed Stihl fuel makes it a breeze to operate (pardon the pun). A single fall yard leaf clean-up by a lawn service would cost me double what I spent on this item. Buy one of these - you'll be happy you did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I have only had this about six months, but so far I like it a lot. It starts easily every time. For the size of the unit it really moves air as well. It has a smaller engine than my last blower and this one clears my driveway and sidewalks must faster and easier

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight. Excellent for required job The on/off switch is sensitive and can be shut off with minimum pressure. Being left handed I keep the unit on my right side and this impacts the intake panel. Have had to adjust handling unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best blower for your money. This blower is a great produce. I use it all the time to do blow any grass and leaves off walks and driveways after I mow them. Also a very good blower to clean of your equipment after use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works much better than the base model BG 50 I originally bought the BG 50 and returned it and bought the BG 56. So glad I did. Unlike the BG 50, this one starts up every single time after only a couple pulls. Works great, no complaints after about a month of use. If you are considering the BG 50, I would recommend you save yourself a lot of headache down the road and splurge for the BG 56, you won't be disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unfortunately I believed the hype I'm actually quite disappointed in my new leaf blower.I was expecting it to have much more power than what it has! I feel I could have spent less money and have gotten a comparable blower. It didn't even start on the second pull like I was told.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from american made quality this is my second Stihl blower, I replace an old import with the amarican made BG 56I am very happy with it with one exception. the new BG56 does not have a throttle lock. I am very disappointed with this because my old Stihl blower had a throttle lock.I thought I was upgrading until I got home and started using my new machine and there was no throttle lock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product! This product is everything I hoped it would be. It's a great machine to run, it's dependable, it is a quality product, and I love that if the product needs to be serviced I can take it right back to where I bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Power and easy to use. I recently purchased this blower and a trimmer { 40 c-e }. they are to replace battery powered ones. I would forget to recharge the batteries for these tools. When I did recharge them they seemed to not last as long as they should. These tools are easy to start and use. Both these tools toke some getting used to as they're a little heavier and powerful than the battery ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great leaf blower for the price if you have a large yard. This is a must have leaf blower if you don't want to drag around a long electric extension cable. It has more than enough power to do the job and starts easily every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will Never own anything else This is a awesome blower...easy to start with auto choke ...I replaced an Echo...that was 13 years old ...this blower is well worth the extra$$ I also purchased purchased the gutter attachment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One quality issue The leaf blower is great. It is quiet and has enough power, however the gutter attachment is very difficult to attach and even harder to remove. I have to use a lubricant to put the attachment on the blower. I may have to purchase a second blower tube and leave it permanently connected to the gutter attachment. This is a quality which has not been addressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performer The BG 56 C-E delivers as advertised. Startup is a piece of cake and there is power aplenty for any home-based use. It is also quieter than I thought it would be, a plus. Only thing I could ding it for is the air intake makes it a pain to swap to your left hand because the suction is so powerful it tends to suck your pants in. A bottom intake might have been a better idea. Other than that though I'm usually done so fast it doesn't really matter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cranking issues If you ever get it.to crank it is fine. I bought the Stihl premixed fuel and just pull pull pull. Have read the instruction Booklet 3 times. Of course it says if you have the old carb do this or the new carb do this the picture is only drfferent in one has to symbols and the other 3 symbols.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bang for the buck. Starts easily every time. Quiet operation and tons of power. After pricing this blower against the competition there was no question that you get far more bang for the buck with this blower. Very good purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Blower has all the POWER a Home Owner WANTS and NEEDS Truly amazing how much power this BLOWER has. I could of gotten a BIGGER INDUSTRIAL blower but my STIHL Dealer at LEVAN'S POWER EQUIPMENT in BELLEFONTAINE OH. Listened to my wants and needs and showed me the BG56 hand held blower. And I used to run an ECHO PB Power Blower. STIHL is so much more powerful. Thank You STIHL
