    STIHL Easy2Start™
    The STIHL Easy2Start™ system makes starting STIHL® outdoor power tools almost effortless, eliminating the need for a strong pull of the starting cord. This advanced starting system is designed to make starting STIHL® products fast and easy. The specific system may vary by model, but in each case, a quick pull overcomes the engine’s compression to minimize the strength and effort required to start. Available on selected products.

    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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Absolutely flawless. I don't think I will buy another piece of lawn equipment unless it's a Still !!!. Milt's in St. Mary's Maryland is awesome. June 25, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by hard to start usually takes 15- 20 pulls to start. if you dont follow the recomended start procedure to the letter, forget about using it for a few hours. ive only used the stihl moto mix fuel in it since new. purchased on 5/15/15. I have run two full tanks of fuel through it. also it seem it does not want to make full power until it gets warmed up really well. June 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Light and amazing I have been doing landscaping for over a year for extra income besides my full time job. I have wanted a Stihl product for a while and my first purchase was this blower. My wife wanted me to buy a cheaper blower from Home Depot like a toro brand, after seeing all the issues other guys were having with other brands my decision was easy. The blower is alittle pricey but it started up on the first pull and I can't believe how light and powerful it is compared to other blowers. Also it is super quiet. Anyone can use this blower due to its lightweight. I always try to get the best. I believe Stihl is the best for landscaping. June 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best product at the best price Well constructed, easy to use and easy to service. Can not believe how popular this blower is and the extra two year warranty is outstanding. Thanks! June 18, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Let me down I have only had the blower for 6 months and used it about 4 hours total. It was hard to start from the first time I tried to crank it. Took it to the dealer and they determined it want not getting any fire to the spark plug. I know had to send it off for two to three weeks for service. I would have expected more from a stihl blower. I have two Stihl saws and weedeater that are great. June 11, 2015
