    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 from Good, reliable blower Best lasting blower that will last for years. There are more powerful blowers out there but this blower will last many more years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the 2 (other brands) that I returned. I'm tired of having to buy a new leaf blower for my 6 ac. Every 2 years. So, this year I tried out 3 different manufacturers' products...one of which was the latest, greatest battery powered blower. I returned the first two and happily kept the Stihl. It has exceeded my expectations all summer long...using it 4-5 times per week. My other Stihl tools are great, too. I should have known...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Been in the shop to be fixed longer than I have owned it The nut from some where in the blower came undone and shredded the fan like device in the blower. Things happen I know. The problem is that I bought it for my son who is cutting lawns this summer. He used it. Week and it was broke and the only option the Ace Hardware gave me was the have it fixed. Lesson learned...if I bought it from lowe's I would of have an exchange in less than an hour. Fixing this stuff is old school. I bought it because I needed it and the Ace Hardware can't give me any date whatsoever on when it will be fixed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quiet but not enough blowing force I've enjoyed my blower so far. It starts easy, it's light weight but most of all its the quietest blower I've ever used. The down side is the blowing power / force, not up to my standard anyway. But if you live in a neighborhood with close neighbors then they will also appreciate this blower as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for the homeowner Purchased this blower to replace a 6 year old echo that had a hot start issue. Power is good and it starts easy when cold.But after its hot it has the same hot start issue as the echo.Once cool,no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My old Stihl blower was 15 years old My old Stihl blower was 15 years old, used daily, and it was time to replace it. If it last as long as my old blower, I'll be very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of power Had this blower for a little over a month now and it works fantastic. I use it on all kinds of applications. I can't wait to try it on snow. Very happy with this blower.
