Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great power to weight ratio. I bought this blower to something remove lawn clippings after commercial cuts since since we typically used backpack blowers I wanted a lightweight unit to add for small jobs when it was unnecessary for the larger units it's been great product so far very lightweight simple to use and very reasonably priced

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great tool for the price Been using this product year round since purchase and it has never let me down yet. Compared to other brand blowers I've had in the past this is by far the best. This is my 1st Stihl purchase and now am a customer for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Quaility I've had many leaf blowers over the years, most only last about 2 seasons they run fine then next time go to start it nothing. I have grown tried of this so I thought I would go with a better quality Stihl BG50.So far easy to start, seems to have way more power than units I have had before.Lite weight and does not vibrate . Old units I had would vibrate and make my hand numb after a short time of use. The BG50 I used for about 2 hours one day and my hand felt fine no numbness. So far very please with my decision to purchase a Stihl Blower

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight and powerful I needed a basic handheld blower for removal of lawn clippings after mowing as well as general tasks though out the year. The Stihl BG 50 is easy to start, light weight and more powerful than the previous blower I owned. It is just what I needed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from dissappointed First one I got would not start. Took it back and got a replacement. Very hard to start. Very cold natured. Once warmed up it performs well. Also have other Stihl products I have been very happy with, but this one is a disappointment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really happy with this blower I bought this blower having owned several electric and gas powered blowers over the years. By far the lightest and most powerful gas blower have owned. It feels to be same weight as the electric blower, starts easily and runs well. Very strong. Good quality build.
