    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 4 out of 5 by Good Product Blows good and starts good you just can't run it wide open till it warms up and it takes a few minutes to run wide open. April 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by High quality dependable peice of genius this blower was the first blower i ever bought. it starts every single time with just one pull. equipped with the easy 2 start feature significantly reduces effort to start. the automatic choke means you will never have to worry about flooding the engine. plus it automatically switches to the on position so you never forget.highly recommend to anyone.great step up from the bg55 and is worth the price paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by This product makes the job easier This blower is easy to start and use. It has cut my time down and saved me money. I highly recommend this product. March 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Product functions as expected. The on/off switch is poor. Often failing to function properly. I have been forced to turn off unit by chocking it to death. March 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A fantastic blower After careful research, I selected a Stihl leaf blower in fall 2014. Immediately it made clearing leaves from the many trees in and around my yard much easier. The BG 56 C-E blower generates strong airflow, yet does not feel as though it is forcing itself backwards in one's hand. It is also fairly quiet and easy to operate.Being made/assembled in the US helped me choose Stihl with confidence, as did recalling the incredibly old and dependable Stihl chainsaw my grandfather owned. I wish I had tried Stihl products before purchasing a string trimmer made by another brand - it is much more difficult to start and much louder than my Stihl leaf blower. February 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by this product works great it starts easy and runs great idles very nice and has plenty of power to get the job done February 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My 1st STIHL Product not my last I was tossing up which blower to buy so I was reading up on blowers and then I went to the Store saw the 56 and bought it . When I got it home and fired up I was like WOW . Now I want the Backpack Blower ...Great products February 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quality and dependability are the benchmarks for all my Stihl products This is my first hand-held blower. I opted for maneuverability and quick accessibility or the power of a back pack blower. The BG 56 C-E provides quick use in small places. The blower provide ample power blowing capacity to do what I purchased it for. The new engine and emissions standards prevents the high revs of older Stihl models, but still puts the necessary power to work. Took some getting used to. But with each use, I like it more and more February 12, 2015
