    Seems to work and run good
    Also I am very happy with the blower I still feel that it should start a little easier at 1st then what it does Although the blower works very good I still feel it should have more wind velocity i will be Happy if it keeps up running as good as it does now Only time will tell But if it is like the steel chain saws it should be a very good machine over all I do like it for my small jobs because it is a lot easier to grab and use over a back blower

    This blower generates a high volume of air at a moderate sound level.
    I had only had this blower for a couple weeks when I had occasion to use it to clean the gutters out on a garage. I wasn't paying close enough attention and it slid off the roof and fell to the grass below. It never stopped running, and was undamaged except that the small wire spring connecting the throttle to the trigger inside the housing became disengaged. I removed the housing cover, reconnected the wire spring, and haven't had a bit of trouble since.

    excellent easy start light and quiet
    Im 91 years old and I was looking for an easy start leaf blower and when I went to the dealer ship I told the salesman I wanted a easy start leaf blower and he recommended the BG56C-E, was I surprised how easy it starts and how quiet it is.Stihl engineers did a good job making this one. I had several makes before but nothing compares to this one. Excellent leaf blower.

    Another excellent STIHL product
    I purchased this blower for leaves and acorns in my yard along with blowing snow off the drive way. Did an excellent job at both. Has enough power to move big piles of leaves but is noticeably less power than some of the higher end models. This is the perfect product for a homeowner who doesn't need all the extra power or want to pay the higher price tag for the professional models.

    Plenty of power
    I would take this backpack blower over ANY handheld blower on the market. It is as powerful as most backpack blowers twice the weight.

    Reliable Produce
    I have owned this backpack blower for a year. Excellent product. It starts on the second pull everytime I use it. It lacks a little power compared to my previous handheld blower but not enough to downgrade it. The upside of having a backpack instead of holding the blower and your arm go numb outweighs the sligh loss in power.

    Stihl Quality
    I have a few Stihl products. All of them have performed great. Easy to start after storing for weeks or even a few months. Stihl brand has become a favorite of mine. I would recommend the tools for home owner use.

    Great Product
    I always wanted a Stihl and finally purchased the BG50 gas blower. I've had it now for 2 weeks and it has outperformed other gas blowers I've had in the past. Starts right up and has plenty of power for any household use. The BG50 is lightweight and easy to use. Make sure to always use the Stihl gas mix and it will also double your warranty. Great product!

    Overall, good product
    Early review, only used the leaf blower once, but so far so good. It did take several pulls to start, but after that it was fine. This is my 1st Stihl product. It replaced a blower that had a 32 cc engine, so I expected a less powerful wind force from the Stihl. If it existed, I certainly did not notice it. It is also lighter than my former blower was, so the Stihl is easier to use. My other leaf blower lasted 15 years of heavy use with absolutely no maintenance whatsoever, so my new Stihl has a ... read more long way to go before I can comment on its relative reliability. Still, its a Stihl so I expect a reliable product. So far, no complaints.
