    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 Great homeowner blower I came into this skeptical after having past Stihl blowers give me issues starting. This blower has had zero issues, especially with starting. I love the Easy2Start feature, the power is great, it's fuel efficient, and quiet. I love Stihl products and will keep buying them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product and Great Design. I have a large patio area and a privacy block wall that is a magnet for tree leaves, weeds and debris. I contemplated going with the BG 86 c-e due to the larger HP; however the salesman at my local hardware store convinced my to go with the 56 c-e as me being a homeowner and not a commercial contractor. I took his advice and I have Not regretted my decision at all. I use this blower and/or vacuum at a minimum of 1x a week, if not several. First time I used it was to suck up several bags of old nasty leaves and piles underneath heavy vegetation without hesitation and plenty of power. My garage is also a magnet for weeds and debris, therefore I am using the blower portion all of the time, again has more than enough power. I did go back and by the flat nozzle which does work better than the round one IMO.Great Product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product For the Money First day I brought it home I was not impressed. Used it for 20 minutes and it would not stay running. I took it back to the dealer it was purchased from. They had sent out a warranty claim for the unit and replaced the carburetor. Have not had any issues since picking it up a week later
