Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Leaf Blower! I have had this blower for several months now and absolutely love it. My neighborhood has a lot of Pin and Red Oak trees that drop a lot of leaves. This leaf blower has done an excellent job and is easy to use. I have also used this blower several times to remove 1 inch fluffy light snows and it did a great job. This leaf blower is easy to start, runs great, light weight, well balanced, and really moves leaves. It might be just a little more expensive ($50) but trust me, it is well worth it to own Stihl and you won't regret it. I own a few other Stihl products and that's all I'll buy now.I previously had a Craftsman 25cc 2 cycle 215mph blower that I liked but it always had starting issues. It never liked to restart when warm, sometimes it wouldn't start for days, then finally very sluggishly start. Finally it died after just 3 years. December 28, 2015

Rated 4 out of 5 by works as advertised, When using it to mulch up my leaves this fall. I wish the zipper opening was wider on that end so the leaves would come out better. I had shake the leaves out with some force, while trying to keep the leave in the bags I was using to hall them away. The leaves don't just fall out. That is the only complaint I have. It works great other than that, wet leaves and all. December 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice and light I just bought it today after the lowes one just stopped starting hasn't started in 3 days I came home gassed it up started instantly did my leaves , only down fall is it doesn't have a headlight or I'd still be out there, there is truth in you get what you pay for it may be a bit pricy from the get go but after only one use worth every penny, thank you stihl November 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow, this blower is great. After checking my options I decided on the BG86. Wow glad I did. It's a fantastic machine. Lots of power and you don't get tired when using it. Hands above my old blower. So happy I purchased this unit November 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for my yard My son has a backpack blower that is to big for my yard. I have 5000 sq. ft. to use a blower on. My son has 1 1/2 acres. His blower is a BR 500. Brought the blower home and gave it a try. Much to my surprise this is more than enough power. Possibly more than I need. Every thing Stihl says it is and more. I am going back today and get the gutter attachment because I do not like getting up to the roof. Easy start, loads of power, and easy to use.I have always believed spend the money for quality, you get what you pay for.Great value for the money October 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by By far the best blower best blower I've ever used its power is unmatched very satisfied I've used Echo products in the past and I'm switching over to Stihl products from now own September 23, 2015
