Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Over the shoulder strap could be included. Could be on the lighter side and with a shoulder strap it would ease some of the arm stress for longer use. We only purchase Stihl products. Very dependable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall great machine As indicated above, overall great machine.Two problems encountered.1. OFF switch located exactly where the thumb rests while holding the blower. I keep turning the machine off by accident.2. Suction screen on side continues to suck my pants leg into the grill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does everything well My BG86C blower does everything I expected it to do. Blows wet or dry leaves with ease and that is essential in the Pacific Northwest. The price was higher than other brands but I had to rebuild my "other brand" blower twice. I'm very pleased with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm impressed with the power Bought this mainly to shred leaves that blow into my garage lean-to, impossible to rake or blow them out. The power it has for blowing leaves out of the yard is an added bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best handheld I've owned, surprising power, great quality Bought the BG86 to replace another top tier manufacturer blower that lasted over 10yrs. Decided on Stihl because of a MS260 chainsaw my wife bought me a few years ago....I was very impressed with the chainsaw so said why not try the Stihl blower. No regrets and have nothing to knock the blower about except pricey.....guess you get what you pay for. I've had a few hand held blowers over the years and the others had the air pick-up at the bottom, the Stihl is on the side. A little annoying that my loose Shirt/clothing gets sucked to the intake so tuck your shirts in! I was very surprised at the amount of air the small blower puts out. It is also very quiet compared to others that I've seen. Quality is excellent, typical Stihl and its pretty easy to start but can see it may be a problem with elderly. I bought the BG86 w/o vacuum bag but decided to buy the optional kit in the fall........should have bought the BG86 C-E and could have saved a little $. Would definitely recommend.
