Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is dependable and powerful. I am really enjoying my Stihl BG 86 CE. It provides the blowing power I need to blow the hard- to- move Live Oak leaves in my backyard where I want and is lightweight and easy to handle. A quantum improvement over my previous gas blower!.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable blower Blower seemed very sluggish from the start. I did fine tune carburetor for better throttle response and top end power. That made a noticeable difference. Blower is very smooth, no vibration. Also it is very light. I do think this is a quality machine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bad gas leak Started and ran good except for a bad gas leak while running. Gas leak was not due to a spill while filling or leaky gas cap. It was from the carburetor area but could not see exactly where. It was started in the store when I bought it and I used it twice. All three time it had a very strong gas smell afterwards. Returned it to the store for a refund. Quality control?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very sluggish This unit takes forever to warm up until it can go full speed. You feel you are at half throttle until it warms up, which take time. I wouldn't buy another product from Stihl again. This is strike two. I have also had problems with my chainsaw.
