    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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another steihl quality product This is an excellent blower for the home owner.I use it for blowing debris on driveways and clay tennis court.It starts every time if u follow the instructions.Can not believe the reviews who had start problems. It comes down to whether u can follow the start instructions.If u cant read or follow the instructions ,buy a broom! Was tempted to buy another brand with better warrenty but after learning of the limited ,almost non existent repair locations,went with the local Ace dealer here in Tennessee. U cant beat a Steihl product; I have used them for decades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hurricane Irma blows, just not as hard Hurricane Irma just blew through and left a mess up and down my street. The neighbors all pitched in to clean off the debris and I used my Stihl blower to get the sticks and leaves off the roadway and every driveway on our block. It's a small thing but it was much appreciated by everyone and my blower remains a champ! Next up I'll be investing in the Stihl chainsaw!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the product features are less than previous BG50 's I purchased my second BG50 the first needed to be replaced after 8 years of use. I was surprised how the units have changed. The handle has no padding, there is no handle to lock in full open position. So you have to keep the trigger squeezed at all times. No additional tubing is supplied. Seems the features are less but it isn't reflected in the pricing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Genesee Mecanical Services sold me a lemon Genesee Mecanical Services sold me a blower from their old stock that had a know carb recall on it. From day one the blower would only run when fully chocked, when I took it in for warranty they told me it wasn't covered. Until I found out about last years recall on the carb on this unit. So he sold me last years model this year. Definitely won't buy another Stihl unless they make it right! And definitely won't buy from Genesee Mecanical Services.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from this prodcut has worked well for me i cant give 5 stars because it is brand new and hardly used yet,,but for the price its a great deal,,its lightweight enough to carry and use for a awhile,has always started within 5 pulls or less for me,has plenty of power and i have not had any issues with it so far and i am looking forward to really testing it out this fall.So far i am very pleased with this product and would recommend it when compared to different other blowers of the same type.After all its a stihl and i havent had a bad experience with their products yet.Still a good company and products but thats just been my experience with them over ones lifetime.
