Rated 5 out of 5 by Always very easy to start. I bought this blower in 2010 because I wanted a good quality, reliable blower for around the house. It has never failed to start. Never had a problem with it. June 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buy this one! Hurricane in your hand. Ok... A bit overstated but not much. And as a side note please ignore the domesticated version of all Stihl products. They are orange and white but they are not Stihl. May 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Makes my lawn duties enjoyable I considered the BG55 at first, but I'm really glad I went with the 86. This blower is light, easy to use and my wife loves how clean our walkways and patios are. This product is easy to start and makes my clean up much easier. The spring engine casing also makes the handling easier while I'm blowing out for long stretches. I have a Stihl trimmer as well and have no doubt that if I keep this as well maintained as my trimmer it will last. May 25, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great features but difficult to start The only negative thing about the BG 86 is the design of the start throttle/choke setting that creates more confusion then necessary and wasted time trying to get the engine started.After 10 minutes of trial and error you sometimes find success starting the unit by pulling the chord 20 times in full choke until partial turn-over then adjust the throttle and move choke to 1/2 position - if your lucky it may start before the neighbors finish laughing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by My first gas blower I love this blower. It starts easy, is light, has no cord, and plenty of power! May 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wise decision Nice power, solid construction, and a real workhorse. I use this to clear gutters on my home and rental properties, amongst other things. One rental in particular has a 120+ year old pin oak that drops flowers in the spring and acorns in the fall. I should post a video of those little acorns flying out of the gutter! The flowers in spring are no joke wet. Wish the throttle could be locked at 50% and 75%, not just 100%. I am confident this is the only blower I'll ever own. April 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by BG-86 Review The BG-86 is powerful, easy starting, and a great step up from what I had before (not a Stihl). The "elastostart" pull cord handle is nice, and it isn't too hard to pull over the engine when starting. I like the semi-automatic choke system, and although it takes a bit of getting used to, I pretty much have the method down for starting. The auto return stop switch is nice, but I wish the throttle lock was more of a cruise control for locking the throttle at any desired speed, but I can live without that. This is a very powerful blower, although I do wish there was the "rotational control" feature that some competitors have, as this blower is very powerful, and it does try to rotate on you. The anti vibration system is awesome, and the rubberized handle is great. This is a great product, and I may even add a BR-200 to our Stihl collection in the near future! February 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by You Get What Yo Pay For! I am glad that I went with the commercial grade BG 86 product even though I only use it around my house. Its vibration dampening really reduces fatigue. It is great for blowing leaves out of tight places and, if conditions are right, I use it to blow snow off of my car and side walks. I have owned it for over 2 years and use it alot. Only routine maintenance so far. January 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome blower awesome blower it is very strong and quite at the same time this blower will not disappoint you starts easy and is so much lighter then a backpack blower January 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great overall product. Everything I expected from a stihl product. Well made, easy starting, exceptional performance. Have had several less expensive blowers in the past with marginal and short term utility. I have only used the Stihl 3-4 hours but I am very optimistic that I will receive years of service from it.
