I have had one for four years using it five days a week and have not even changed a spark plug.Used only stihl oil 50-1 mix.
Make sure you run exactly a 50:1 mixture as any richer will be a bit fummy on the smoke side , Buy the Husquvana 2 stroke chain saw oil as that is the most least smoking and better for performace as its a semi synthetic oil.
Also a high octane fuel will gain better engine performance also.
A great performance, relaible with real 'blow' power. Starts easily and needs little maintaince as long as you are fussy with the fuel mixture. Stihl is a very good relaible brand.
The leaf suction and mulcher set bag set is not worth the money as it doesnt work or perform well on my BG65 model so i don,t use it at all
This blower is more than capable to get the job done. I have one that has had a very hard life. The user of it was very rough on exuipment. It droped off a roof. It broke the starter mechanism and broke some plastic shroud. I replaced the starter and it goes again. Good paice of kit.
Like others have stated, it is a two stroke and like any good peice of two stroke kit you have you should put the correct oil to fuel ratio in it.
A good light reasonable powered blower.
Not as much output as beter model. But not everyone needs the top model.
have had this model for 5 years and it has proved to be powerful and reliable with no problems not to mention that i have never had it serviced.Used frequently and only use still oil and fresh fuel mix.
easy to start and use,reliable, quality built.
Buy it! Stilh products have a very good reputation and a network of dealers providing support if you ever need it.
Light and well made. Blows like crazy and not too noisy for a 2 stroke
Watch the fuel mixture and use only the stihl oil as others need a 25:1 mix.
