Everyone's Stihls are hard to start. I took a printout of a thread complaining of such to my dealer and they said they would forward it onto the district Stihl rep. Who knows, maybe the new BG85 is better?

The new bg85 has that cat. converter. Which makes it start weird and loose power.

Both of those dealers suck. Eastbank tries to rip me off everytime I go in there, and pauli has some problems also. I'm talking to stihl about him now.

pb200 was my first blower, it has lasted me years and I don't even treat it that good, a very good durable machine, starts up right away.

I have a PB210e that is 16 years old and starts everyday on the 1st pull. It has never been in the shop and it just blows and blows. I bought another one a few years back as we needed an extra blower. I just goes and goes. As far as not making them....they are still on the website and they are CARB certified.
