Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, well-balanced, easy-to-start blower/vac with minimal drawbacks. I found, as stated in other reviews, that it must run a few moments to warm-up to full power, which is not a big deal. Power seems very adequate, well-balanced, and runs smooth. Once warmed up, the Easy2Start feature makes restarting easy and consistently effortless. The main downside for me is always having to use a tool (screwdriver tip) to unlock the blower tube when changing over to a vac or switching to the gutter attachment; this process could have been made much easier and tool-free. If you never change tubes or attachments, then no problem! I have found STIHL products to be reliable and high quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase! Bought it to blow leaves on 2 acres of trees. It saves time and back from raking. Cranks well as long as it’s primed. I really like the throttle control that holds it at full throttle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great blower but had trouble starting I am a very loyal Stihl customer and have had blowers, weed trimmers, and edgers in the past. Love your products and I am loyal. I went to Rural King and looked at options. I went with the highest priced hand held. I bought it because it had the Easy Start option, which was important for my Wife using it. Got it home and had some challenges right off the bat and my Wife could not start. They said short pulls would start it , like my weed trimmer, but I pulled multiple times with finally started on the 6-7th pull. If I had to do again, I would have bought the cheaper model. I do not want to stop using your products. Maybe if I could exchange for another same one?? I also bought the gutter attachment to blow leaves. Thx Jeff from Greenwood, IN

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Blower This is a great handheld blower. My wife usually hates trying to start anything with a pull start engine. She has no problem with this model due to the easy starting technology. She can fire it right up and she loves using it. The quality is top notch and i really feel this blower will last many years. Very powerful air volume comes out of this model. Highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Waiting to see how long it lasts, not starting out very well. Purchased on Tuesday, broke on Wednesday, in the shop on Thursday, out of the shop 11 days later. Not a very good start.
