Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most excellent product. Starts every time I need it and runs perfectly. I put Moto mix fuel in it and that's really makes a difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Blower Very easy to start, has lots of power and when you sit it down it doesn't vibrate all over. The automatic reset choke is nice and also easy to shut of and it resets itself .I'm sorry I didn't purchase a STIHL before. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for around the house Only used it twice so have a limited review. I have a mixture of pine needles and oak leaves to clear off my driveway and sidewalks. Also, used to clean out gutters. Starts extremely easy, first pull. Blows off leaves/needles with ease. Recommend for cleaning gutters as its light and has just enough power to clean gutters without blowing you off the roof.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No time is wasted trying to start this blower. Life is short use your time well. The easy-start BG 56 C-E blower is the best blower I have ever purchased because it is the easiest starting blower ever. It always starts on the first or second pull of the starting cord.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy so far! Have only used a couple of times, but happy so far. Have not used the vacuum attachment yet. Leaves are beginning to fall now. Starts up usually w/in 3-4 pull when cold. First pull when warm. Good blowing power, but seems like motor has more left to go. I'm sure there's a governor on it. Just doesn't seem to go "full throttle." But the power is certainly good for a household blower. Purchased because of the Stihl name, and the cost really was in line with stuff from the big box stores.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Blower is great but Gutter cleaning attachment is of very poor design I purchased my Stihl leaf blower a little less than 3 years ago. The leaf blower is great - it's solid, starts easily, and has plenty of power for homeowner use. However, the main reason I purchased the blower was to be able to clean the house gutters using the Stihl gutter cleaning attachment. The Stihl gutter cleaning attachment is very poorly designed and is difficult to use to the point where I'll try another cleaning attachment or make my own. Right from the start, the geometry that must be used to use the cleaner (straight out of blower up to gutters) is very awkward to use. While using the cleaner, because of the design, you must continue in the same direction which does not result in the best means of cleaning the gutters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great Blower function works nice, easy start up. Can’t wait for fall to try out the leaf shredder feature.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Problems from initial purchase this blower never has run right from the first day of use. Rough idle, sputters when accelerating, low on power.I have multiple other Stihl products and all have been very dependable and no issues.Still under warranty and in to Stihl for repairs now (going on two weeks), new spark plug, fuel filter and carburetor were installed however did not resolve the issues. Would like to know if Stihl would let me upgrade to the BG86 C-E for the price difference between the two blowers.
