    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 3 out of 5 by This product has average features I bought the blower about a year ago. No problems, but when I try to start it again after shuting it down, it takes me 3-4 pulls to restart it. Well the power is good so i recommend this product. January 19, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good price for the blower, but problems. I like everything about this blower, except the engine stalls after warm up when you give it gas. Because it dies, I have to restart it and this happens frequently. Dealer replaced the carb, but it continues to stall. Tried to take it back within the first month, but because I had used it more than a week, they would not take it back. January 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lot's better than my old blower I like that the kill switch is rocker type.Don't know how many times I cranked on my old blower to look down and realized it was in off position. Will not happen with this model. Easy crank is way better on my arm too.Little more cost but you get what you pay for. December 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a good blower for the value. I bought a different manufacturer's blower several years ago and I have spent also as much on repairs. I have a Stihl chain saw that is 25+ years old and it still runs great so I gave up on the other blower and bought a Stihl blower. It starts easily, it has more power for moving leaves than my old blower, it's not heavy and it does a great job for what I want. If it holds up like my chain saw, this blower will probably outlast me. December 22, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent price and quality. Nice features like a clear primer bubble so you can see if it is primed. The easy starting system is a good feature for a person who has two bad shoulders.I do recommend this leaf blower. December 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING RELIABILITY! I bought this blower 3 years ago. First I can say it has been used and abused and never has given a single problem. Dropped off roofs, thrown around and countless hours on flower beds, mulch beds, drive ways, everything. I am a professional landscaper and I 100% recommend this blower. Great power for a handheld and light weight.also use gutter cleaning kit with this blower. Always starts on first pull hot or cold. Would buy again. 100% sold on stihl. December 12, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works as expected Takes a minute or two to warm up, but I warm up my power equipment anyway. Works great with the gutter attachment and has plenty of power for my .5 acre city lot. The only gripe I have is that there is no trigger lock/"cruise control" so you have to hold the trigger down the whole time you are using it, but I knew that before I bought it. December 7, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Leave blowing is great. A little under powered for mulching. Very easy to operate and I like the blower part of this. I bought the mulcher and it is a little under powered. Clogged up several times and stopped when I sucked up a small stick. December 3, 2015
