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

Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent power and control of air streams I purchased in 2014 a BG 86C-E model handheld blower. Best blower I ever owned. Easy to use, plenty of power and dependable. The three things a homeowner looks for in any type of power tools. . It funnels more air into a smaller size that moves mountain of leaves with ease. You can easily control the edges where the blower air stream is distinct unlike other blowers. Not only is this blower well worth the price but is the most efficient. It is amazing how much work it is capable of doing. Never own anything but Stihl products. June 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Blower I read a lot of the reviews and then purchased mine. It was very difficult to crank. I THEN read the instructions. It IS very EASY to crank once the correct procedure is used ! Love it ! Very smooth running and very powerful! May 17, 2015
