BG 86
BG 86 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 123.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great handheld unit I've had the BG86 for about three years now. Its worked great and has never had to go to the shop for repairs. I've used synthetic Ace hardware brand oil in with no issues, sorry Stihl. It takes four or five good pulls to start her, same as when she was new. And she takes a minute or two to warm up before you can get full throttle, but the same can be said about me. So no demerits there. Other than that she works like a champ and has good power. We now live on a bigger property and will be upgrading to the BR600 backpack blower.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Won't reliably start I have been using 2- and4-stroke small engines since the early 90s and I've never had as much trouble with starting something as I have with these Stihl blowers. Using Stihl oil and premium fuel. Don't tell me about flooding, choking, priming and everything ecause I have tried everything. Will start sometimes and flood other times - giving it no throttle. Have never had this much trouble with the Japanese brands or with Stihl chainsaws.I bet they don't post this review

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great power Finally upgraded to a professional blower. Great weight and power. Even use to clear light flaky snow instead of shoveling or plowing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not highly recommended This blower is fairly light and powerful.Vibration dampening very good.My issue is twofold, blower takes several minutes to warm up, can be difficult or impossible to restart once warm.Blower tube is adjustable and easily removable for tight spaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great tool for a great price I have about an acre of yard and I need something to help with the cleanup and this blower is the best investment that I could make, it sure has been a work saver. I have found it to be efficient and easy to use and the weight is about right because I don't get to tired using it. I highly recommend this product to anyone who needs help and has a lot of leaves and debris.
