    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 bang for the buck I purchase Stihl because I want quality AND durability. I made the mistake of buying a lesser priced, heavier, competitor product, that lasted for only a few years. I was in a pinch to finish my lawn work and rushed to my local Stihl dealer to get a new lawn blower that I have wanted for some time. This blower is great, very powerful for it's lightweight profile. I personally like the design of the huge intake fan o n the side of the unit that really gulps in the air! Excellent product that I anticipate will last the rest of my life. And a big tip of my hat to Stihl for eschewing planned obsolescence and building indestructible power equipment! May 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally own a nice blower. I have a good amount of dirty trees and a yellow Lab that love to make a mess. I use my blower 5 to 7 times a week. I have owned four other blowers over the years, two of them "the other premium brand". Well they all sucked! Starting issues, running issues, parts falling off issues. None of them worked well for more than a season.I decided to try a Stihl. I brought it home gassed her up and it fired up after two pulls. The thing has a ridiculously good sounding engine. I'm a car guy and this thing sounds like a cammed up race blower. I love the sound!I was concerned about it not having a throttle hold lever. Sometimes you don't want full power but something in between. It really isn't an issue though. Idle has a nice velocity and full throttle has a great velocity. It really doesn't sound like it's blowing as hard as it is. It clears my yard up nicely.If you are considering a new blower don't bother with the other junk ot there, spend the extra 20 bucks and get a Stihl, you will love it! May 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works good Works good love using it in the garage living out in the country our road always has sand on it from the winter so there's always sand in the garage but not after I fire this hog up could almost eat off the floor after blowing it out May 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by top notch product I've always heard Stihl was a good product but never really gave it much thought on buying one I was content over the years buying the cheap store brand or the home center standers ... I got tired of having to replace them with in a year or two because of their cheap quality ..I got my first stihl and could not be happier starts first pull each and every time and the power is bar none the best ,,, I should have bought this product years ago instead of wasting money on all the other ones...

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2nd Stihl product in 2 years. New brand loylity Up until last year I never considered a Stihl. Last year I got the 56 weed trimmer, and this sold me on getting a new blower this year. This is a great product. It takes about 5 seconds to get warm, but then it purrs. I am proud to buy products built in the USA. May 8, 2015
