    Excellent leaf blower!
    I bought this on a recommendation from the local Stihl dealer- Green Thumb. This blower starts easily, is comfortable to hold, and has more power than I really need. What I needed was a blower to clean off a large concrete area and long walkway that gets a lot of debris on it from trees. This blower "blew" through it in minutes. This is a solid unit made from quality materials and I really like the "Made in America" idea as well. The dealer gassed it up and tested it for me before I left.

    Very good, not great
    I have had several blowers over 3 decades. My 20 year old Craftsman is being used by my son, still. This BG56 is better than the Craftsman in weight and noise level. The force of air is also better than the Craftsman, but only slightly. I expected a great deal better in the Stihl after reading reviews. I am disappointed in the Stihl that I could not have the option of a flat tube. Why not?

    This is a good blower for the value.
    I bought a different manufacturer's blower several years ago and I have spent also as much on repairs. I have a Stihl chain saw that is 25+ years old and it still runs great so I gave up on the other blower and bought a Stihl blower. It starts easily, it has more power for moving leaves than my old blower, it's not heavy and it does a great job for what I want. If it holds up like my chain saw, this blower will probably outlast me.

    Excellent
    Nice blower! Plenty of power. Starts right up and is very light. I like the variable speed trigger too. Not sure why all the poor reviews for starting. I guess there are a lot of folks who don't know how to use the choke. Follow the instructions and you won't have any issues. It starts up just like my old WeedEater blower I had for 10 years.

    Awesome
    Really love this blower. First Stihl brand item I have ever owned and It's great. Starts perfectly, tons of power and very lightweight. I'm going today to buy a Stihl weed eater.

    Very light yet very powerful
    This blower is pretty light and yet has a lot of power. I can easily blow off just about anything I need with ease. My dad has an older stilhl that has been used extensively and it is still going strong. I would highly recommend this blower if you are looking for a very dependable blower that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Plus I bought a 6 pack of stihl oil and they extended my warranty to 4 years! Can't beat that.

    Very Pleased
    Starts easy, runs well, uses very little gas, Does the job as desired, I have a full acre of land, lots of Fir trees and broad leaf trees, maple, walnut, cherry. The Broad leafs blow very easily, the fir needles are a lot tougher. I should have purchase a bigger blower because of the fir needles. This one works but more air power in my case would work better. All in all very pleased !!

    Good backpack blower
    Bought this stihl br200 backpack blower to replace old handheld blower ( not a stihl). The stihl br 200 cranks very easily every time. It is light weight and comfortable to use. It is lacking in power a bit , however , it is plenty powerful to do the work around our property. Overall a very good backpack blower for the money. I have had this blower for a few months now and I have no regrets.

    this blower has good power
    I bought this in lieu of an Echo 500. My main reason was the weight, only being 12 pounds vs 22.doesn't have as much power, but for what I use it for it is perfect. Mainly I use it to dry off my cars when I wash them, and keep my property clean.it starts very easily,it will blow grass clippings and small piles of leaves easily. If you're looking to blow massive amounts of leaves this is not the blower for you. Overall I am very happy with this product.
