BG 86 C-E is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 154.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I was looking for in a handheld blower Good flower awesome price decent power lightweight
Date published: 2018-07-18
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs a little more punch. I live in the country with a huge parking pad with a long sidewalk, three porches and a patio on the back of the garage. All of this is kept clean with a blower. My past blower, which still works is a 20 year old Craftsman. 170mph and 470cfm is what it is rated. That is a little more than the new Stihl and it does make a difference. I will keep this blower, I just have to plan a little more time to complete the task.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I should have bought this years ago I was reluctant to purchase a gas engine blower and have yet another engine to maintain. I should have bought this years ago. I finally got tired of the cord getting tangled up on things. I now finish my weekly clean-up in less time than I used to spend winding up the cord. What surprised me is that this machine is significantly quieter than the electric blower it replaced. It starts easily

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing but STIHL in my garage. The best hand held blower on the market. Easy to use, lightweight, quick start, and quieter than my BG85. I had the BG85 just serviced and handed down to my son. He just purchased a home, and after the service, the BG85 is like new. It's 14 years old!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good As Expected I considered the smaller models but I am glad I splurged for the BG 86. It starts on the first or second pull every time, is very light, and has a good vibration dampening system. Note that this unit is clearly designed to be balanced in the right hand. I am left handed and it takes some getting used to having to hold this in your opposite hand. ( If I dont my pants get sucked against the inlet and the exhause fumigates my leg.). Overall good unit and would buy again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Great Vibration Dampening but power killing over restrictive spark arrestor spoils the fun Great Vibration Dampening but power killing over restrictive spark arrestor plug spoils the fun,
Date published: 2018-06-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice! Does everthing I need it too and more. It is easy to start. It has nice balance so it is easy to control and it overly heavy. It is much quieter than other blowers I have used. I really like the fact that the throttle has the ability to be locked into position so I don't have to hold the trigger down when doing a larger job. Runs for a long time on a tank of fuel. Thanks Stihl!
