    Real power from a cordless
    I was very skeptical when I bought my first cordless piece of lawn equipment. It was the Stihl cordless chainsaw, and from the first limb I cut I was impressed. This tool is no different. The convenience of no cord, no fuel, no pull start cannot be stressed enough. I still have the gas version of both and use them when I know I will be at it for an extended period of time, but for a quick cleanup or quick trim this Stihl equipment cannot be beat if for no other reason than time saved, but there ... read more is no loss of quality on a job well done.

    Work is done in a fraction of time
    Purchased this blower after watching my neighbor clean his yard. We have had cordless blowers, but it took forever to clean up and pine cones and other heavy debris had to be hand collected. The Stihl blower is beyond belief. Trust me. You will love it. Only downside is that it is a bit heavy for a small person like me. The trade off is definitely worth it. Thank you STIHL.

    Fully meets all my expectations
    Bought it to blow leaves off the roof and clear the gutters. Does all that and more. Even used it this morning to blow the snow off the driveway and Suburban in 10 degree temperature. Using the 160 battery it lasted a full 30 minutes even at that temperature! May have to buy a second 160 battery to increase use life (driveway 150' long) but overall with the sole exception of the high price I love the machine. It is light enough that my wife will use it while she would never use a gas blower of ... read more which I have several.

    Reliable replacement for my cordless
    This blower is clean, light, and allows my 8 year old to help in the yard clearing the driveway all summer. I am looking forward to leaf season for a change.

    I love this STIHL Blower!
    This is the best leaf blower I have ever owned! It is so light and easy to use and very quiet compared to most blowers.

    I'm sold! Great blower!
    I've never had an electric blower before, but just moved to a smaller house and no longer needed so much lawn equipment. I have a small lot and small patio and driveway/walkway. This blower has as much power as I was used to on my previous gas blower, but you plug it in and turn it on--so simple! No gas/oil mixture to fool with, and it's super light weight! I love it! I didn't rate the 'dependability' heading above because I haven't had it that long.

    This products has useful features.
    Due to the season, I have not used the unit extensively, but the unit has performed well to this point. My initial use felt as though the unit was under powerd; however, after I purchased the flat nose tube, it seems to blow with more force. After the unit is converted to the vacuum, it suctions so well that the fairly small bag that cathes yard debris fills rather quickly. Aside from the above, this is a good product.

    Excellent Surprise
    For the last ten years or so, I was blowing my leaves into piles, raking those piles onto a tarp, and dragging them to the back yard and piling them up there. It was a hassle. I bought this attachment today. I was skeptical about the performance of it and whether it would be worth the money. It's worth the money and then some BUT, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. The blowers do not like sticks. You want to make sure you pick those up first. Also, if your leaves are dry (and they ... read more should be. It works much better that way) it's a dirty job. Then vacuum away. I was able to take what would have been 3-4 large tarp loads of leaves and shrink them down to 2-1/4 trash bags. Put those by the street and done. No 3 foot deep pile of leaves to worry about decomposing. I highly recommend this attachment.

    Awesome Leaf Blower!
    I've had a BG86 blower for 2 years now and love it. I've owned the cheap box hardware store blowers in the past and they've all broken too quickly. This STIHL BG86 is really reliable and very easy to start no more than 2 pulls every time! If you have a lot of leaves to deal with then this is THE blower for you. The features are handy including the throttle lock so the throttle trigger doesn't have to be constantly pulled. Do your self a favor and buy one!

    Great Blower
    I purchased this blower 3 years ago for fall leaf cleanup and general homeowner use. It gets used at least once a week for cleaning grass clipping from garage, driveway and street. One of the things I appreciate about the blower is that it starts very easily. When the engine is cold, I can always start the blower with three pulls. The blower idles well and has a lot of power for moving leaves and debris-even when wet. I've read other reviews about hard starting and rough running but honestly, ... read more I have had no such issues. I am very pleased with this blower and have had zero issues.

    On my second one.
    I liked the first one so much that I purchased another one to work more efficiently. Handles most everything I need it to do and at all angles. I'll work this machine for hours at a time and never fell sore or wore out from doing so.

    So far so good
    Decided on the 450c than the br 600 because of the electric start.On a cold start you have to press the electric start three times to start. I have moved three acres of leaves chest deep .All the features are great.So far so good .Another great product from Stihl.The shoulder straps could use some improvement.

    Reliable Equipment
    Our Blower is the newest Stihl. Bought it for wet leaves, blowing off roofs, barn aisle and it even blew out the horses paddocks when I was in a hurry. Did a great job easy to use, easy to start and the backpack is so much easier to maneuver compared to the wand/pole version. Especially up on a roof.

    Incredible product
    Had my fill of handhelds. This blower is the most powerful I've ever used - and it doesn't seem to matter if the leaves are dry or not. It initially seems a little heavy but once on with the straps adjusted, it is very comfortable. The tube being adjustable is great - and of course the electric start is awesome. Highly recommended.

    Buy It If You Need POWER
    I have had this backpack blower for a few years and if you need to move HUGE piles of wet leaves or some snow then this one is the ticket. When leaves are wet they are difficult to move around and get into piles but not with this blower! It is also great for clearing driveways and sidewalks of snow if it isn't too wet or deep. This beats a broom or shovel all to heck.

    Makes leaf cleanup easy
    I have had my BR550 for over 4 years. It has never let me down. I live in an area with lots of trees and this blower gets a major workout every year. I wouldnt use anything else after having it. The gas cap was a problem, but after the recall it works great. I changed the nozzle to a curved one that my stihl dealer had in stock and it made it even better.My neighbor is buying one after trying mine.

    Wonderful
    I have had this unit since 2007. Just learned there is a air filter that needs to be checked. Looked at it and it was just like brand new. I use this for cleaning big areas and keeping a long driveway through the woods clear. I have not had a single problem except the original gas cap cover which they replace a few years later. It starts up on about the third pull and runs great.
