With a unique design, the Stihl BG 55 leaf blower makes cleaning up your yard a simple process. This gas-powered leaf blower has a powerful 27.2cc engine. It is lightweight and provides many features, including a protected spark plug and a smooth design to ensure that you are safe and comfortable while using this device.

As we mentioned previously, this Stihl leaf blower has a 27.22cc engine. It can blow air up to 140 miles per hour and moves an air volume up to 418 cubic feet per minute. It has an upright, transparent fuel tank so that you can easily see how much fuel remains, and the upright positioning makes refilling it a breeze. The fuel tank can hold up to 13.5 fluid ounces.

A purge pump primer tool is one of this leaf blower's standout features. It allows you to easily prime the carburetor, making it much less difficult to start the device. It is designed so that you cannot flood the engine from priming it too many times. Additionally, the spark plug on this device is protected, but it is accessible and easy to change when necessary.

The design of this leaf blower is much more unique than many similar machines. It features an adjustable nozzle and a large handle on top to make holding the leaf blower comfortable. Additionally, this Stihl blower has no sharp or rough edges on the exterior of the device. This eliminates possible accidents from snagging the machine on

clothes or other objects. This leaf blower has a crisp appearance and looks like a tough piece of machinery.

This Stihl blower comes with a two-year warranty. This allows you to clean up your yard with this leaf blower for several seasons. A longer warranty would be ideal, but two years is still an adequate amount of time.

The Stihl leaf blower offers a few standout features that include its lightweight design and purge pump primer. It blows air up to 140 miles per hour and provides enough power to ensure that this leaf blower can easily handle the cleanup projects you have to compete in your yard.
