    More information

  • Low-Noise Sound Damper
    A noise suppression-muffler in the blower tube on handheld blowers makes this an ideal feature for homeowners or landscapers working in noise-sensitive areas.
  • Purge Pump Primer
    The purge pump primer feature enables the user to prime the carburetor with fuel, enabling easier starting. The purge pump primer is designed in a way that the operator cannot flood the machine by priming the carburetor too many times. Flooding the engine is still possible if the choke is not removed after the engine fires.

Reviews

BG 66 L is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent for the average home You can't beat the power of a gas engine! I had a battery blower prior to this and it was just ok. This Stihl 56 is great. Light enough to carry and more power. The very best thing is the eave trough cleaning attachment.In a few minutes I can walk around my home and clear every gutter and downspout without a ladder. Time saving and significantly safer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Treat yourself! Ok, I normally bought power equipment by price point first. After being in the lawn business and in maintanence I guarantee this...if you want durability, dependability and efficiency you need to try Stihl! It is by far those most well designed equipment around. Give yourself a great gift!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am very satisfied with my Stihl product i have read reviews on hard starting and flooding problems with Stihl products. I had that problem with my first purchase and took it back to the dealer. He got it started and then took the time to show me what to do and what not to do. I love all three of the gas driven products I have and would not buy a different brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for professionals The muffler in the blower tube must have significant impact on the wind speed at the end of blower tube. If you want to get the job done, this blower is not for professional use and I would not recommend its use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would recommend this blower for the small home owner. My experience with the BG55 has been great. It always starts; prime once, choke on twice, choke off once and it's running, just half to milk it up to full throttle. However I need a blower with a little more turbulence, acorns and leaves move well but a good twig laughs at it. Overall it's a good machine
