    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?

    hard to start
    Both the weed eater and the blower are hard to start, even though I paid up for a better model that is supposed to start easily. I am not happy about spending this kind of money and I still have to fight to get them running. Once running they work very well. better products than the last ones I had but still just not as nice as I thought stihl would be.

    Greatest Ever!
    I bought this blower on the assumption it was as good as the other Stihl products I own. I was not wrong. It starts quickly and has plenty of power. I now own a Sthil chainsaw, grass trimmer and leaf blower and I love them all. They start quickly, operate efficiently, need little maintenance, and are easily serviced. The best part is I need only one gas can for all my equipment.

    very easy to start
    I AM A 13 YEAR OLD KID AND HAVE SEARCHED AROUND FOR A NEW BACK PACK BLOWER AND I CHOSE A BR200 I CHOSE IT BECAUSE OF HOW LIGHT IT IS BUT HAVING IT FOR LESS THAN A YEAR. I JUST WISH IT HAD A LITTLE MORE POWER,BUT OVER ALL IT IS GREAT.I AM ALSO LOOKING IN TO BUYING A STIHL HEDGE TRIMMER.

    Well worth the price
    I've got 2.5 acres and lots of trees, I mow most of the leaves but blowing off sidewalks and places I can't mow this blower is awesome, plus if you use the synthetic oil it doubles the warranty

    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.

    Entry level machine that performs commercialy!
    Bought from a long time reputable dealer. I took advantage of the 2 year extended warranty by buying the Stihl synthetic oil 6 pack. The light weight machine has plenty of punch to power through light to medium jobs. My two complaints are that , the starting system is very particular. If you don't follow the procedure exactly you will most likely flood the engine. Also the machine could benefit from a throttle lock too! Other models in the line up address these issues well. All in all for the ... read more performance and reliability and price, I would choose it again.

    A little sluggish on start-up
    Great value and product. It is a little sluggish on start-up but quickly smooths out. Good power, light weight and easy to use. I may just need to return to the dealer for a minor adjustment, but overall am very satisfied.
