    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 Base model with big power I don't like to spend my money on tools that aren't worth it and this blower has proven to me it is money well spent. Light, dependable and able to complete all my residential tasks with ease. August 24, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Money well spent Has the power I need in a versatile lightweight product. I'm amazed at the quick easy start. I would recommend BG-56CE as a first choice even over the BG55 any day. July 28, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by trouble running at first Was not adjusted appropriately upon purchase. Tends to bog down when hitting the throttle. After 5 minutes of warm up, it runs quite well. Just needs a carb adjustment but should have been done before i left the store. Will adjust myself or take back in July 20, 2015
