    STIHL Easy2Start™
    The STIHL Easy2Start™ system makes starting STIHL® outdoor power tools almost effortless, eliminating the need for a strong pull of the starting cord. This advanced starting system is designed to make starting STIHL® products fast and easy. The specific system may vary by model, but in each case, a quick pull overcomes the engine’s compression to minimize the strength and effort required to start. Available on selected products.

    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 5 out of 5 by from Stihl quality, reliable, great power, great warranty. Upgraded from an older yellow and green unit that needed costly repair. Purchased at a Thiesens farm store and dealt with a very knoweledgeable representative during a storewide sale. Blower was fully explained and tested before leaving the store. Have owned now for about a month and working excellently. Very easy to start. The Blower design is more efficient and has more CFM than other models, does a great job.
