    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 4 out of 5 by from Buy this over other store brands I'm a Stihl believer Chainsaws and Trimmers. I've only had this little blower for a month or so but it does have the power for homeowner use, clearing gutters, drives, etc. Very light weight. Quieter than many. And it's nice to have a blowers that uses the same 50:1 fuel mix as my other gear. No attachments to increase velocity but for homeowner use in town it's fine. If you have more land, larger yard, many many trees (like I used to have) get a larger unit. This one does not shred leaves. But in 10 years at my old place I wore out two other brand units. I'm thinking this one will last a long time if it's like my other Stihl gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blowing capacity, Leightweight. It is always a pleasure to start this product. It starts the first time after the few priming pulls with the choke on.The BG50 has more than adequate power to blow leaves, sand, and other debris from 500 feet of driveway and sidewalks. It's lightweight, with minimal vibration, so using it for 30 minutes or so is not tiring!
