Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. September 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by seams to be the best of the hand held blowers The Stihl BG 86 is a little hard to start compared to my 10 year old BR 600 the 86 takes at least 4 to 5 pulls to start no matter what method I use, my old 600 starts most times on the first pull but sometimes on the second. I am using the recommended Stihl oil when mixed with 93 octane gas is a lite gray color. The problem is the gas tank on the 86 is opague and you can not see the fuel level, someone should have noticed this when designing this product. The only way to see the fuel level is to remove the gas cap, or possibly use a different oil that has a darker or brighter color. September 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Has excellent blowing power! I have been in the tree maintenance business since 1994. I was using Echo until this latest purchase. Saw the BG 86 as a replacement for the tired Echo. Now it is Stihl I depend on for every job. I have used Stihl chain saws , since the 80s! September 7, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very Durable Owned 3yrs. with heavy use. Reliable and durable. almost too bulky for one handed use. Would not consider as good a value at its current price point. September 2, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent blower It is so quiet I thought it was underpowered until I put it to action. This thing can sure move some debris!Love it. I just keep adding to my STIHL collection and am never disappointed.MADE IN THE USA!!!! August 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding product ! First blower I've owned. Was recommended by a neighbor who does commercial lawn care. Starts easily, plenty of power, & easy to handle. August 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely powerful! Having owned several Stihl products in the past, I looked no further when I was in need of a new blower. My old blower, a Stihl model BG85, had lasted for 13 years and, though still running, had lost considerable power and was becoming harder to maintain. I told my wife that if it was an automobile, it would have a million miles on it. It had been used to clear snow, clean the garage and drive, and most importantly, to clear truckloads of leaves almost daily in the fall. There were days when it would run for 8 hours at a time without stopping other than to refuel. If the new model BG86 provides the kind of service I received from the 85, I should never have to purchase another blower in my lifetime. Though I expect the most from my equipment, Stihl has never failed to provide. August 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 flat tube directs the air to a focused spot creating more power to move objects. July 4, 2016
