    The purge pump primer feature enables the user to prime the carburetor with fuel, enabling easier starting.

Flooding the engine is still possible if the choke is not removed after the engine fires.

Reviews

BG 50 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 504.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed. Basic blower but just what I was looking for. Used mainly for blowing debris off of my brush hog deck. Will also be used for controlling field burn off. Easy to start, simple to use. It is also the lightest gas powered blower but same performance as heavier BG56 model. Cheaper too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard to start Hard to start from day one, took it to dealer for what I thought would be a warranty adjustment or repair. Dealer replaced carb,plug,air filter and fuel filter stating that warranty didn’t cover this. Starts great now but for 35 more dollars I could have purchased a new one. Will throw it away if it gives more trouble. Over the years my Stihl products have been flawless other than this one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unreliable Start This blower is EXTREMELY unreliable when it comes to starting. It also stops working after about 15 minutes of work and won’t restart for about an hour. Hope you don’t have a large yard.
