    Great Blower
    This blower has great power to blow away almost anything on your lawn. It has the power that you have to pay a lot more at other manufacturers. The blower is comfortable to wear with it's great padding for your back. lastly the blower has great features that no other manufacture has, for example the choke sets to run when you throttle up the blower and the multi-function switch that lets you set a blowing speed and turn off the blower on one switch. I highly recommend the BR 350 backpack leaf blower.

    Easy start an very effective
    I went up to the 350 when look at the 200. I am very glad I did. With a little over an acre the blower is matched up well. It is not to heavy an the wife has even used an not complained. Very good unit.

    There's a reason....
    There's a reason why Stihl products cost little more. It's because you get what you pay for. This blower falls into that category. From looks and design to performance, I'm glad a paid a few dollars more for a Stihl. The blower is powerful enough for the average homeowner and has a low db rating so it's not that loud. From the minute I brought this home, I had a blast (no pun intended) cleaning up all of the leaves....from heavy and wet Maple leaves to lighter and smaller Japanese maple this ... read more blower makes easy work of cleaning up.

    Great handheld power.
    When my old blower broke I bought a BG 56CE. It did not have the power I needed, my local Stihl dealer let me trade up to BG 86 CE. It has great power to blow wet cedar tree stuff off my roof and out of my gutters. It is relatively quiet compared to my last blower. The engine runs so smooth, I don't get the pins and needles feelings in my hands after extended use, which is my favorite aspect of the BG 86. I also like the four year warranty (with purchase of Stihl gas:oil mix).

    Exceptional Product
    I recently purchased and had a few months. It starts up very easily and the vibration dampening system is amazing as your hands do not get numb. It is also relatively quiet and powerful as well. I would recommend spending a few extra bucks to get a good quality product. Great Investment!

    Nice step up from my 13 year old Stihl blower
    13 years ago I bought the entry level blower and it served me well with zero problems. Purchased this BG 86 C-E and it is a joy to use....quieter, less vibration, very good air flow, love the throttle lock and finally, it starts so easily...fast idles during warm-up and is ready to go in about 20 seconds or so....NICE. All accomplished with the 3 position rotary knob. I REALLY like this blower. :)

    Awesome machine for any size job
    I upgraded after having a Stihl hand held blower for 10 years to a BR450 back pack. Once I got over the learning curve of throwing the back pack on, I realized the freedom that comes with having both hands free along with an incredible increase in CFM "Power". I can imagine that this is certainly not for all home owners, but it certainly fits my "farm" use.

    This is one sweet machine!
    Starts fast and easily as long as you start it as instructed in your manual. It has superb power and is comfortable to operate, as long as you keep your posture correct and don't slouch your shoulders. That being said, this blower is the best I've operated in my 30 yrs. experience and I've tried a few different brands over those years. Best of all it's MADE IN AMERICA! (always keep fresh gas or store as recommended in the owners manual, I always use a fuel preservative in all my equipment before ... read more storage with great results)

    Great design for the urban leaf blower.
    Excactly what was needed in a noise conscience environment. Stihl enough power to lift wet leaves of the sidewalks. If I was to use it everyday I would probably go for the BR600 but since it is only used sparingly this does the job I bought it for.

    Very Quite and Does the Job
    I Maintain Grounds equipment on a university campus and we recently purchased three BR 500 Blowers for our department. All three are working great and it is much nicer around campus with the reduced noise levels from these blowers. We have many trees and at any one time are running 7 to 8 leaf blowers during the Fall to keep up. The BR 500 Blowers move less air than other blowers that are available but they provide enough air to do the job and as stated above produce noticeably less noise.

    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.

    Love it. no regrets on purchase.
    got the BG 86 just at the beginning of leaf season. this year they all seamed to dump at once. I have an acre and half of wooded property. This blower took care of my needs. I was wanting a back pack blower due to the size of area and volume of leaves, but wanted handheld for the rest of the year. I decided on this handheld and was very pleased with the performance and the volume of air this thing puts out. it even moved the wet leaves. highly recommend if your looking for a handheld. I have had ... read more no problems with it starting. Look forward to many things I will find uses for this powerful blower

    I am satisfied after one year of service.
    I've had the BG 86 for one year and it has been great so far. I use the product once a week in the summer to clear my porch and sidewalks of grass clippings and I also use it to clean my garage. I have a lot of trees around my house and use it to blow the leaves into piles in the fall. It also makes clearing gutters a quick process. I like the ability to change between a round and flat tube because the round tube seems to work better in the yard but the flat tube does better on concrete. The ... read more flat tube directs the air to a focused spot creating more power to move objects.

    Best Blower Ever !
    Did a lot of research , and this blower kept coming to the top of the list. Price point is great value for the features, power and aped that come along with this blower. Have had previous gas blowers in the past, this one puts them all to shame. They can not compare to the power , speed reliability of this machine. Starts every time on the second pull on cold starts, and first time every time when warmed up. Great on fuel as well , large capacity tank compared with others and weight of machine ... read more is less than 24.5 lbs. fully fueled., could not find anything in this class a such a light weight, customer for life , great machine backed by great company.

    Awesome product
    Just bought this blower few hours ago and have only used it a total of 20 min. I'm blown away at just how strong this thing is. I own stihl weed trimmers and hedge trimmers due to running a small lawn service but only had a red max hand blower up to now. Was finishing a customers yard earlier today and while blowing off driveway and pool area the clipping got wet and it took forever to blow everything off. So guess this was a frustration buy but oh so glad I have it now
