BG 86 C-E

Our most powerful handheld blower, made even better with Easy2Start™ technology.

BG 86 C-E
BG 86 C-E is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 91.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful but hard to start. It takes 8 pulls to start initially but cranks easily after it warms up. It bogs down when you give it the gas but is very powerful after it finally decides to take the gas. If you use the flat tip, it is hard to hold because it pushes your arm backwards when you accelerate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid blower Been using this blower for a season now. Overall I'm pretty happy with it. Starts well, runs good. Haven't used the shredder yet. I do have the gutter kit attachment and have made some quick money with it. It's basic but performs good with this blower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch Time Saver! This product did an amazing job both with the vacuum and the blower. This saved me hours of time being able to switch quickly from blowing and vacuuming. It mulched the leaves and sticks, and aside from the occasional 1 inch piece getting stuck it ate the rest with no damage to the metal blades! Love this thing and will have the weed eater next season to match!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed This blower has more air velocity than my retired backpack. I can get into tight spaces where I couldn't with the backpack style blower. One thing that you may want to consider is if your left handed and you have the blower next to you it will suck your shirt/ coat onto the protective grill it has that much power. Great anti vibration handle and it's not heavy for those long working hours.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product may have a quality issue Had the BG 86 C-E for about 4 years. It worked great up until about a month ago. While blowing some leaves it all of a sudden stopped immediately. Recoil was tight and would not move. Brought it to a Stihl service center and was told some bolts backed out of the engine and were wedged between the fly wheel and the motor. Broke a number of fins off and damaged the seal. Cost to fix was 2/3's of what a new one would be. Don't know if the bolts were never tighten down sufficiently or adhesive to help hold them in place was never used. I don't know if I'll take another chance on a Stihl blower again.
