    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.
  • Zoom
    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 Really like this so far Great little blower. It starts very easy and is relatively quiet. Air speed seems a little weaker than my old electric one but if the flat nozzle will fit this model this should make a difference. Overall I am well pleased so far. I was tired of dragging the extension cord around with my old blower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish it would start first pull Great blower, low vibration and decent throttle response. Would get a 5 star (along with my trimmer), if it had 1st pull starting. The 90 dollar Hitatchi blower that I'm replacing would always turn over on the first pull.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This Stihl Blower is great around the outside of our house and property -- Also note the blower can used to clean other buildings and outdoor house or farm equipment off. Even can be used to blow water off any surface you may have a need for.. Also note easy start // stop and adding fuel is easy..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from easy to start the blower is very easy to start. My 13 yr old daughter starts and uses the blower while we mow the lawn. I previously had a Ryobi and it was a good machine. I anticipated that the Stihl would have more power than the Ryobi; it does not. It is sufficient for our needs, but not any better for the few more dollars that I spent. I do believe it will last longer than the Ryobi

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent blower This is a great blower - it is balanced in weight. Puts out good volume of air. Great value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy again Met all my expectations except the CFM. The CFM may be as advertised but I would buy one with higher rating next time.I purchased 2 "big box store" blowers that only lasted about 2 years each. My 10 year old Stihl grass trimmer still going strong w/o problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to start Great blower. Cold starts after one to two pulls. Starts with one pull with a warm engine. Light weight and powerful enough for what we need. We needed a new blower to blow cut grass off our sidewalk, porch and driveway so I decided to go with a Stihl product this time. Works excellent for what we need. We purchased the FS 40 CE weedtrimmer at the same time as the blower. Well satisfied with both
