Rated 5 out of 5 by The best big handheld blower on the market I was seeking another stihl blower to replace my retired stihl sh85. I bought this one. The 4 point spring anti vibes make this blower very comfy to use this machine has plenty of power for big and small jobs this blower is very easy to start and use (mine starts in 4 pulls- I use 50:1 canned fuel ethnol free). I highly recommend this blower. January 3, 2015

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product! I recently purchased this blower and have used it several times. Overall, it is an excellent product. It is easy to start, light weight, easy to use, and does what it is advertised to do.I have only one complaint/area for improvement in regards to this machine machine. I wish the debris bag was about double the size it is now so I didn't have to empty it so often. I'm guessing it is the size it is so the "average size" population can easily handle the weight. I'm a bigger guy though (6' 6" & 230 lbs.). So, it would be nice if there were an option for a larger bag for those of us who can handle it, and would like to have it.Outside of that, I absolutely love my blower/vac. Without question, I would buy another one and would recommend. The only thing that kept me from giving it an "excellent" rating was tha lack of options for a larger debris bag.Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by very powerful This blower has exceeded my expectations. I have multiple maple trees on my property and this blower has made clean up so much easier. Great Product! November 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bought my last cheap blower We live under three very large pin oak trees. Cheap blowers have been a pain in the rear. This unit is easy for the wife to start and run. Blows leaves off house and gutters in a flash. Gutter option does the trick. Very powerful blower. Just what I needed. November 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My search for a gas blower. Stihl makes professional-grade gas leaf blowers It sells exclusively through outdoor power equipment dealers Like Top Gunn Equipment in Austin Tx. . Stihl has a very high quality design very easy to start maintain and use. I previously used an electric blower to clean around the the pool deck and after falling in to the pool, hook power cord and blower it was decided I would find a Gas replacement blower and after extensive research I chose the BG 86 CE blower it is very light weight easy to maneuver, I use the blower around the yard and to blow the water off my Harley Davidson after washing it so I wanted something that would last and be durable and function-able at the same time. I was very happy with the pre-sale knowledge of the staff at Top Gunn Equipment Rentals in Austin, Tx. They also performed a pre-check of the blower before it left there store. the Stihl line of gas handheld and backpack blowers features high power and high amount of air I chose the handheld for its light weight and power. Consider this brand before shopping the other brands at the big box stores. I am very satisfied with my Blower. November 19, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by This product has not performed well. Seek another brand I purchased this 5 years ago and I literally use it approximately 5-6 times a season. Sept to late Nov. Since purchase the carburetor was replaced twice under warranty, the muffler bolts have loosened off twice (my repair and parts) and I just brought it in to find out the bottom aluminum casing has cracked allowing the engine mounting bolts to loosen and the engine to seize. (The unit was not dropped). This is a very expensive piece of garbage. I take care of all my power equipment and use the correct oil and additives per specifications. I may have received a lemon but my wallet has had enough. I have two weed whackers, 2 snow blowers, lawn tracker all with many more hours and all perform well. I hardly use this except in the fall and can not get through a season without having to put money into it. Find another leaf blower/vacuum. November 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by BG86C Blower I've had this three years now. I love it. Looking for backpack unit but can't find one with as much CFM or MPH so why waste money. Of Course Stihl has some but my yard is not large enough to justify the cost. This one does just fine. October 31, 2014
