    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.

Are You Ready for a STIHL?

BG 56 C-E is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 508.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy starter assembly Pull cord kept getting stuck and wouldn’t retract . Took it in to get fixed, happened again, fixed it myself and it lasted maybe a month. I then went back to the dealer for ANOTHER starter coil, and low and behold it bent again on the 2nd pull. I learned to pull the cord more gently the first time it happened but that didn’t seem to help, it’s just an easy start aka "flimsy” there’s no reason they shouldn’t be able to make a more heavy duty spring. Spend your money elsewhere if you’re looking for a reliable blower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sold on STIHL Just like the chain saw I also purchased in 2017, the ease of starting and operating of the BG 56 blower is great. both run without any sputtering or fear of stalling out. Always run with 89 octane gasoline in the the mixture, in ALL of your outdoor equipment and you'll have no issues. I won't hesitate to buy STIHL or from Akron Tractor & Equipment again.
