BG 50 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 150.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Minor problems but overall good product. Had initial problems regulating the carburetor and was informed by the salespeople that it doesn't need to be primed as much as suggested by the manufacturer. Once running, it held up to the Stihl reputation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great investment I am very pleased with my BR 200. Just the right size. While I wish there were a bit more power, I understand the trade off for a smaller sized model. I would purchase this tool all over again if I had the same decision to make. I have a little over a half acre yard FULL of leaves. And now I'll be able to keep it neat and cleaned up thanks to my Stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It fit my needs to a T Light weight, low noise but plenty of power for showing the leaves who's the Boss. The dealer showed me how easy it was to start and helped me pick the correct blow for my needs. It's not fancy but it gets the job done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Blower Can't Go Wrong Very nice blower. I made the switch to Stihl a few years back with a trimmer and won't use anything but Stihl going forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, exactly as expected I was of the opinion for many years that electric blowers were the way to go. Only until I purchased the BG 50 did I realize how much I had been missing out, what a fantastic tool. Starts on the first pull, lightweight and powerful enough for any homeowner! Great job Stihl!
