Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Too soon to tell, but so far so good. Last yard blower I had lasted 20+ years. Hoping this one won't wear out so fast! Easy start is a plus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Basic Leaf Blower Ease of starting is a plus. Not the most powerful blower I've ever used, but certainly adequate for homeowner use. The price was a bit more than I wanted to spend, but if it lasts more than 2 years maybe it is worth it -- too soon to tell. Generally, I'd rate this a good blower. It has done a good job for me, but it's too early to tell whether it will last.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not last. Did great for first year, fueled from same can as ALL four of my Stihl products. Would just stall out after running about 2 mins. Took into dealer for repair, was told scorched piston. Funny all the others items running fine. Dealer would not stand behind product. For that reason I will stop dealing with dealer after 30 years.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent and Reliable Love it. Easy to start, plenty of power to move lots of leaves, pine cones, acorns, even damp leaves. Love the 4 year warranty and knowing this is one of the best built products (Stihl). Thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BG56 This would have been a big o five, if it wasn't for the nozzle vibrating to the unlock position and blows off. This has only happened twice so far. Other than this, it's a great blower. STARTS REAL EASY IS A BIG PLUS!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from starts easy and light but the volume of air need to be chock down more does not seem to have much pressure half to keep going back to get what it leaves behind cause of the of not enough pressure... I have two stihl chainsaws and you can not beat them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best blower I have ever owned. It starts every time with ease. I have owned all different kinds of weed eaters, blowers and chain saws. Stihl is the best and most dependable of them all. Stihl will start every time and will always run. I will not buy anything else. You get what you pay for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New-Runs Very Poor BG 56 CE. After 15 minutes run time the RPM started to drop and continued to degrade to the point the engine would hardly run. I took it back to the store for return and was asked if I used the store's mix and glad I did because I knew if I didn't they would blame the mix. The store made sure it started and ran but I insisted on a replacement. Instead of swapping for the same model I upgraded to BG 86 professional and it runs great. I suspect the BG 56 had a defective carborator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to pull, starts right up I have owned my blower for a year now and it is perfect for a home owner to get the job done, awesome on gas and starts right up every time, love it, going for a chain saw soon, and it will be Stihl

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down best blower for the money Very reliable and smooth running. Heavy duty enough to be able to do the job, yet light enough for just about any homeowner to handle the blower. The only downfall is my neighbors have to keep listening to me use it everyday (although it's not loud at all).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really does the work Not only is this blower top notch, but the accessories are a wonderful addition. I'll never have to climb a ladder again to clean the gutters. My driveway is 100ft long and with the sweeper nozzle, I can get it done in no time with little effort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blower I've owned several Stihl blowers over the years and haven't been disappointed and this blower follows suit. I have numerous oak and pine trees on my property and use the blower daily to blow all the leaves and debris from the roof, driveway, and walkways. The blower is reliable and has the power I need to do the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great homeowner leaf blower This blower is a must have for home owners. fairly light with enough power to blow wet leaves into a pile. easy to start just prime the carb about 4 times, don't over prime as this will flood the carb, and your set to go. i always use the stihl premix fuel as it contains no ethanol. i want to thank my dealer John Sorola for good advise. i recommend this leaf blower to homeowners.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product is poor Where's the power.. My 25 HP boat has more wind blowing in my face at 20 mph than this blower at full throttle.. Very poor.. And I used to be a service tech for stihl products years ago.. Bought this yesterday at the same store I used to work at 20 years ago.. Really gone downhill..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple starting procedure. I use it on a daily basis to blow a large amount leaves from my yard. It is well balanced and fairly light to prevent fatigue. It has plenty of power to move large piles of leaves. Although starting procedures are simple, it still will take 6 pulls of the rope to start it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from already sent back for repairs Purchases on 09-25-2016 already needed worked on, other than that it works nice

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful and Lightweight One season down, no issues. Impressive power. Will blow wet grass off the driveway, wow. high volume. I Like the intake on the outside (right handed) so it doesn't suck your pant leg in. Its a different class of garden tool altogether. You can tell by its smooth idle, and when rpm drops it sounds like a motorcycle (ring, ding, ding,) if you catch my drift. It has that big engine quality. Takes about 1 minute to warm up, cold choke works great, Only gripe is the half choke when warm, takes several pulls to restart. Had a different major brand before and never would start, ever. I Run Stihl premixed or equal always.
