    Usually starts on 3rd try with priming bulb
    Although it only takes 2-3 tries/pulls before it will fire, The BG50 is excellent for the homeowner with a medium-sized yards. I like the quality of the product and support local business. I believe the BG50 was built for the budget minded homeowner who wants quality without sacrificing a lot of money. I would recommend this product to other individuals in the market for a good, quality, and affordable blower.

    Love this blower.
    I have been using an electric blower for 5 months since we moved into our new home on 1 acre and it just wasnt doing the job. It's now fall (or what we consider fall in FL..) and I am getting many acorns on my asphalt driveway, the electric blower wouldnt get them moving. This thing moves all the leaves, twigs and acorns off the driveway perfectly. We also have a pool deck without a screen, many times the leaves would get caught in between the pavers, the electric blower wouldnt move them. No ... read more more leaves with this fella. I used it to clear the driveway, garage, walkways, pool deck and the gutters all this weekend. It's lightweight and the fuel seems to last a long time. Very easy to start as well. Get one!

    Just what I was looking for
    I was using an electric powered blower and my house needs sweeping almost everyday due to the many trees so I was looking for something portable, compact, strong and dependable. This gas blower has it all and so far I am very happy with it and for the price it was well worth it. I have a big yard and carrying the electrical cord was getting annoying at times not being able to reach and not having the freedom to move freely. Since the purchase and from when I first turned it on it has not failed ... read more me and has always performed he same when I have used it.

    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 ... read more 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.

    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.

    The power of this tool is great
    Just purchased my 86c. I have a lot of trees on my city property. The 86c delivers the power to blow all of my fall leaves into the street for the City to pick up. This blower has enough power to blow through 12" deep leaf pile up and push them to the street. I tried the cordless blowers. They just can't produce enough run time to finish the job. Very happy so far with this tool.

    You can't miss with this
    My neighbors have one of these blowers, and when I saw what it would do, I immediately went to Ace Hardware in Hixson, TN and purchased one. It is a great little blower and did our leaves without any trouble. I hope to purchase a second battery, though the recharge on this one is super fast. Thanks, Skill, for a great product.

    Just as powerful as gas blowers
    First off, this blower is just as powerful as gas blowers I've used. I picked it over gas blowers because I didn't want to mess with having premix fuel around and also it is lighter weight and doesn't vibrate like gas blowers. I like that this blower's battery is held in a belt holster instead of in the blower itself. This keeps the unit light weight wear it counts. I ended up using the shoulder strap that came with my string trimmer on the battery holster instead of a belt since I am usually ... read more wearing athletic shorts. I like that the same battery works for this blower and my string trimmer. I've had this blower and string trimmer for 2 years now and am now looking at getting a chainsaw and hedge trimmer that use the same batteries.

    After six months
    Good concept, but has its limitations. I bought this as light duty blower and shredder for my landscaping business. It is six months old. First the cons. DO NOT buy the model with EZ recoil. After the guys stretched the internal spring 4 or 5 times, I coverted to the traditional recoil. Now it is durable! The other negative is the shredder has limitations. Not intended for big jobs or wet material, otherwise it works great. For the pros, light weight, agile, decent blower performance for a small ... read more package, great in small places, and reliable motor.

    It's great being cordless!
    I love not having to deal with an electrical cord. I am a small, older female, and needed a vac/blower that wasn't too heavy & started easily. This product accomplishes these requirements for me. I do have a little difficulty in pushing the tabs with a tool to change the tools! But can live with it. I think if you were stronger & had bigger hands this might not be an issue, just an annoyance. My husband likes using this product, except push tabs, too. Haven't had/used enough to know about the ... read more maintenance aspect.

    Value for the price.
    My yard is about 1/2 acre and with a lot of trees, pecan and oak trees. With all the trees in my yard and so many leaves in the fall, I needed a good dependable leaf blower and vac. I researched them and talked to yard maintenance people about the equipment they use. Most used stihl products and were extremely satisfied. Stihl was what I purchased. I am extremely happy with it, so this year I purchased a stihl line trimmer, and am pleased with it. Stihl equipment is my choice for lawn tools from now on.

    Powerful, comfortable leaf mover
    This new BR 700 has changed the way I look at leaves. My 15 year old BR 400 has performed amazingly well, but with three acres of open ground surrounded massive sycamore and large oak trees, I have come to dread leaf season. The BR 700 is simply a leaf bull dozer. I'd decided that I needed a larger capacity blower, but I never imagined that huge amounts of leaves could be moved this quickly and easily. I used to blow them in piles and mulch them. Now I just blow them into the woods. The BR700 is ... read more comfortable, the additional weight isn't a problem, and the adjustable throttle grip is great. It has cut the time I spend on leaf control at least in half. This is a serious machine. If you have LOTS of leaves to move, this is the blower.

    Great blower!!
    I was hesitant about the price. But this blower starts easy, is comfortable to carry, and it does a great job! I had a smaller blower that just helped a little. I have A LOT of leaves to clean up, wet ones behind buildings, sticks mixed in, big areas to move leaves. This thing does the job. I haven't lifted a rake yet this fall! I have no blisters as I usually do from raking. And I have cut my raking time by 1/3!

    Powerful
    I’ve had the blower about a month. I use it to blow huge quantities of leave in a campground area. The power and velocity of this blower is fantastic. We had some wet weather and it’s ability to move heavy, wet leaves was exceptional. I would highly recommend this to anyone needing to move large quantities off leaves. Wish I had this years ago. It would have eliminated LOTS of raking.

    Excellent tool!
    This vacuum is an awesome tool. We use it a lot to clean up plant trimming, weeds, leaves, etc. in our greenhouses. It puts almost anything it can pick up right through. Highly recommended!

    Worth a try. Saved me lots of time.
    Yard was full of leaves, & thick. After filling one bag in a short time, I used the vacuum without the bag. Threw the mulch out to the side & down. It's dirty, wear a mask. But it's saves emptying the bag every 2 mins. or so on the really heavy areas. Then used the mower to pick up the rest. Reduces the mulch by a great amount, and puts the rest in the lawn.

    Great productworks as advertised
    The vacuum tube works great! You must go slow with wet leaves or small twigs. I pick up 10 to 12 vacuum bags ever other day in high winds. No instructions, but look at the instructions you got with your blower it explains how it works. GO SLOW WITH WET LEAVES GRASSHOPPER. Do not exceed the vacuum capacity of the blower and you will have no problems.
