Product Description

The STIHL BG 56 C-E is a domestic petrol leaf blower designed for general clear up of leaves and debris around the home and garden (e.g. paths, driveways, and lawns).

This petrol blower has a max airspeed of 158 mph, which makes short work of any clearing job. The power for this comes from an economical 2-stroke engine with a design that combines high performance with low weight, low emissions, and 20% lower fuel consumption compared to other 2-stroke engines.

Thanks to STIHL’s ErgoStart technology, the BG 56 C-E ensures easy and reliable starts, reducing the effort needed to start the motor in half. The manual fuel pump helps with this by also reducing the number of starting strokes required, making this leaf blower very easy to get started.

On top of this, a stop-switch and semi-automatic choke lever resets the blower to the run position, preventing accidental flooding and ensuring smooth starts.

Finally, this petrol leaf blower is very easy to work with due to its lightweight design and comfortable control handle, which has all operational controls in reach of your thumb.
