Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Very Good First blower I have ever owned. We have mostly fir needles but it works very good on those. Not as good when they are wet but its better than using a hose and water. Starts easy and balance is very good. September 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best blower made This is the best blower I've owned and/or have researched. This blower moves wet leaves that is matted. I never have a problem with starting this model blower. The price is very competitive for this blower compared to the competition. September 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceptional Product I recently purchased and had a few months. It starts up very easily and the vibration dampening system is amazing as your hands do not get numb. It is also relatively quiet and powerful as well. I would recommend spending a few extra bucks to get a good quality product. Great Investment! August 29, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Hard to start when hot. Brand new BG 86 C-E. It does not start easily when it is hot. Not too happy. July 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Heavy duty I have dropped this thing off of a 3ft ladder and yes it ran and nothing broke June 15, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Power- but easy2start is pointless Owned for 6 months and returned for 2nd time in a month bc the start mechanism pull fails. I also run a big-55 which never had this problem in 5 years. Save your money, the pull on this machine is a bad design the shop seems familiar with. I regret my purchase and will likely return to a more reliable brand. This is supposed to be a commercial grade Model I have my doubts. June 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best handheld on the market I purchased a used machine from craigslist. Unit is about 2 years old now but you can't tell by looking at it. Has great power to weight and starts easily. The automatic choke has streamlined initial startups and restarts that confused a lot of people. Attachment of suction tube could be a little easier but overall an excellent tool. If your considering a different brand-stop. You've already found the best. It clears gutters, cleans asphalt for sealcoating, clears grass clippings (duh), stimulates campfires, and makes quick work of warehouse/garage housekeeping with out rattling your joints from there sockets. A little pricey if purchased new but still a good value at msrp for the weekly+ user. If your only going to use it once a month- go electric. May 30, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cannot beat a Stihl product I purchased the Stihl BG 86 C-E about a month ago. I sure do like it. As with all Stihl products, you take care of them, they last. Between 2 chainsaws, pole saw, brush cutter, you just cannot go wrong with Stihl. My go to chainsaw is a 1994 009L, that still runs like it did new. Proof, that you take care of Stihl products, they last. The anti vibration on this blower is great. Thank you Stihl, for making a quality product, that is made in the USA. Also, having a servicing dealer is a great, when you need replacement items. Not the big box stores, that have a one size fits all, & nothing fits anything. You get what you pay for. May 11, 2016
