Rated 5 out of 5 by from This blower has the right power for the money. I purchased the BG50 blower about a month ago. it hasn't skipped a beat. I'm using ethanol free fuel to prolong the life of the blower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great home blower This little blower has allot of power. More than I thought it would have. My yard is full of leaves since I have allot of trees and no grass. This blower moves the leaves with ease. I am very glad I got this one. I was going to spend an extra $50 on the next one up but I'm cheap and didn't want too. Glad I didn't as this one has all the power I need. Cranks after only a couple of pulls. I would definitely buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of power in a very lightweight blower The BG 50 is very consistent starting. It has a lot more power than I expected for a blower this size/weight. The only negative I can find, which probably applies to all blowers of this style, is that the air intake is on the right side, so if you are left handed (or just weak like me and need to switch hands after a while), then you will feel the intake pulling on your clothing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Usually starts on 3rd try with priming bulb Although it only takes 2-3 tries/pulls before it will fire, The BG50 is excellent for the homeowner with a medium-sized yards. I like the quality of the product and support local business. I believe the BG50 was built for the budget minded homeowner who wants quality without sacrificing a lot of money. I would recommend this product to other individuals in the market for a good, quality, and affordable blower.
