Makes my life easier.

It has been a reliable and consistent appliance and I could not do without it at our place. It always starts first time everytime and we have never had anything go wrong with it in 4 years. We also went and bought a Stihl Whipper snipper as we liked it so much.
Reliable

Thanks for your thoughts I too am tossing up whether to buy a Makita 2500 or the Sthil BG 56. But your post has convinced me to buy the Sthil and the gutter extension sounds like just what i need. Can you remember what the extension cost? Thanks!!!

If I am not mistaken, it was approx $90.

Great blower

published

This blower is wonderful piece of equipment to use. Very easy to start and it has the fantastic idling sound that every owner will know. At FOT the engine is still reasonably quiet, considering it is a 2 stroke which is good for the user and people around. It is also pretty fuel efficient. The only problem is that Stihl spare parts have always been expensive, but then again at the price of $249 AU on sale ($349 RRP) you just can't go past that. Recommend this blower to anyone that is looking for a blower for around the house.
Fantastic idle sound! Easy to start, compact size, simple to use and reasonably quiet
Stihl spare parts are expensive

A worthwhile investment!

I have owned one of these blowers for about seven years and it has never let me down. More expensive than the Chinese made ones but will outlive them many times

the only bad thing it dosen't have a plastic main power swich cover.
