    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 Ease of use. Got tired of box store leaf blowers only lasting a few years even though I always take care to maintain them as directed.This leaf blower is very easy to start cold or hot and has great air velocity. It is not heavy which helps when using it for an extended time.I haven't used the leaf mulcher attachment but plan on it when the time comes.I purchased a case of Stihl MotoMix when I bought the blower and received another year of warranty. I plan on using only this fuel since it is recommended and perhaps it will extend life to an already great product. November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Glad I purchased and proud to own After it warms a minute or two...Simply put, it is a great tool. November 17, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Best blower I've owned I've been using gas powered blowers since they first appeared on the market. My wife and I use a blower daily in the fall and frequently in summer and winter for light snow. I've had issues with the three previous blowers I purchased. This product starts easily and has good wind speed. The local dealer also stands behind this product and sells only this brand. My wife appreciates the lightness during extended use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by This this is awesome Bought this piece of equipment today Nov. 9th 015... this Product is awesome. yard clean up. (Autumn Leaves) was a snap.. You get what you paid for.. love it. light weight. November 9, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Will it perform as well as the one I replaced? I've only had this blower for a month. It replaced one that faithfully started on the third pull for over 11 years. Regardless of heat or cold conditions. The starting methods on this one are different than before and when I was cautioned that it might take a 'minute or two' for the engine's automatic choke to 'warm up' they weren't kidding. Before I knew exactly where the settings for the manual choke were during its start-up. This one is taking some getting used to. Also I think that I gave up some velocity with this one that I miss when I blow the leaves. I'm sure that I'll adjust to this one and I only hope its becomes as trustworthy as the last one. I'm counting on the Stihl name to assure that. November 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to start. Quite operation Love it. Was never fond of my old blower because of the difficulty in starting. The Sthl easy start is awesome. October 31, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by good medium power Stihl blowers are reliable. I have used other brands and while they do a good job, other brands require more maintenance, or don't last as long. This model works well, but if you need big blowing power for large areas, then a bigger sized model is needed. Only bad thing is it stutters a bit when going from idle to full power.Overall good blower and lightweight and easy to use. October 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Still quality, as usual I've owned Stihl chainsaws for years and have always been extremely pleased. I purchased this blower and am once again extremely pleased. It starts easily, every time. It has plenty of power and is light and comfortable to use. October 28, 2015
