Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great power This blower has great power. However, this is my second one. They both have had a leak around the gas tank. I took the first one in to service and they couldn’t find anything wrong. They were nice enough to give me a new one. The second one does the same thing. It’s not a bad leak but when you pay that much money, you shouldn’t have any issues. I don’t know if it’s a flaw in the system or what. Little disappointed with the stihl brand on this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Blower!! Lots of power This is my second blower I have owned... Its a power house. Starts easy and runs great. I use it for clean up around the house. Also dried up a water spill with it. Great product!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nothing like the Stihl weed eater I have harder to start and very low power. My craftsman blower is much better. Tried the kombi system didnt Like it Wish I had tried the backpack blower may have had power I need and want. Will never buy hand held blower from stihl again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of power and highly dependable As a homeowner, I have no issue spending a bit more to buy something dependable and high quality. I’ve had the BG86 for a couple of months now and it really gets the job done well. It has plenty of power, always starts on the first pull and uses barely any fuel. I went with the regular BG86 over the easy start variant BG86-CE and I’m glad I did, the regular one starts just as easily. Thanks Stihl for making consistently high quality and dependable products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! This blower works great and has plenty of power. It starts on the first pull every time, rarely ever needs a second pull. Not sure why others say it's hard to start. I do not have the Easy2Start C model either and it's super easy to pull.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from California trash Apparently these new units are only made for California specs. They are terrible. Hard to start. Takes forever to warm up to operating speed. When it does come up to speed, it doesn’t run smoothly and doesn’t have as much power as my 20 year old unit. I do not use ethanol in any lawn equipment. Dealer says nothing can be done except new carburetor at my expense. This was from day one of ownership

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit disappointed My only other Stihl purchase is a chain saw that I absolutely love. I bought the C model of this blower but it is a bit hard to start (typically takes numerous pulls) and it doesn't seem to run at full speed for a few minutes. I haven't used it a great deal yet, but the blowing power seems to be less that my old one (another brand). Maybe I just got a dud.
