Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 65reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great handheld power. When my old blower broke I bought a BG 56CE. It did not have the power I needed, my local Stihl dealer let me trade up to BG 86 CE.It has great power to blow wet cedar tree stuff off my roof and out of my gutters. It is relatively quiet compared to my last blower. The engine runs so smooth, I don't get the pins and needles feelings in my hands after extended use, which is my favorite aspect of the BG 86.I also like the four year warranty (with purchase of Stihl gas:oil mix).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent blower I have a large yard with lots of trees. This blower makes easy work of leaves, sweetgum balls and acorns. This blower gives backpack results without the bulkiness. Im very satisfied with my purchase. December 31, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet, light, and easy to start even when cold I have a large yard and lots of leaves, and wanted something that could move even wet leaves, yet not weigh a ton or have to wear a backpack. So far this product has fit the bill. Lightweight, easy for a non-mechanical person to use, and powerful. My first Stihl product but it feels good and lends me to look at Stihl for future products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding blower I have managed to live nearly 50 years without ever owning a leaf blower even though I grew up on a farm and have maintained acres and acres of property, even after I moved off the farm. I'm not sure how I did it now. I bought an old electric blower from the thrift store a few weeks ago to install on a large sander I have for wood working in lieu of a dust collection system. I plugged it up and the wife saw it working and had to use it. She blew off the deck, the patio, the slab in front of the shop and the carport. And she did it week after week.So, as an Early Christmas present 'joke' I told her I'd bought her this Stihl leaf blower (I actually just bought it for any of us). I don't think I've ever given her anything that made her smile more, she was like a kid with it. She fights over it with the daughter!! If I had known this, I'd gotten one years ago. She keeps all the leaves off everything and I use it to blow out the shop and blow the leaves out of the gravel driveway. It has truly been awesome. So good, in fact, the daughter wants her own. Wish they felt the same way about my chainsaws and cutting firewood! I am extremely pleased with the purchase, absolutely no problems, fires right up and has really good power. December 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Small & Compact Had To Replace An Old Red Blower That I Have Used For The Past 20 Plus Years. Was Very Pleased With The Weight And Power.Very Quiet, What An Up Grade From The Old One. December 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good, but a few issues early on. I have only had this machine about 4 - 6 weeks and have given it only light use so far. But it has been easy to start and operate. Air flow and velocity seem good and it really has not been as noisy as the electric blower I had before. I really like not having a cord to get out, drag around, and put up. I did have a problem while on my 3rd tank of fuel and took it for service. They replaced the carburetor within 2 days and it now seems OK. October 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiet and smooth running blower I bought my blower from our local True Value Hardware store as they are a servicing dealer and the owner knew a lot about the products. This model is the most powerful handheld model made by Stihl. To get more power then upgrading to a backpack version is required.There are several features that I really like about this model:1. Includes round and oval duct.2. Anti-vibration mounts really do work well.3. The choke automatically turns off when pulling the trigger.4. The unit does not emit any smoke unlike most older 2 cycle engines.5. The unit is relatively quiet for a 2 cycle engine.There is only one thing I don't like so far. The engine needs to run 1-2 minutes before gaining full power.So far I am happy with my purchase and would buy it again. June 30, 2015
