Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stilt BG 86C This is the second one I've bought n I'm regretting it ! I have the same problem with both of them if they sit for a minute or two neither one would restart I gave the first one to a friend n bought this new one hoping I wouldn't have this problem but was wrong. Now the second problem I'm having is the recoil start, its been repaired just a little over a year under warranty n now that's its off warranty the same problem happened again ! The spring twist out of shape n the pull rope gets squeezed n it won't start I've had this repaired once n its happened again I fixed the spring n it worked for two pulls. Now I went n bought a new spring n it worked once then the spring twisted so back to the repair shop for the same problem n all stihl had to say was they've have thousands out there with no problem but I'm not concerned about the others I'm talking about mine so yes I'm done with stilt products I'll go buy some think else !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced a 17 year old Blower Love the easy start feature and the locking throttle. I was going in to buy the backpack model but it would have be overkill.So much easier to start and having a lot 240' x 180' plenty of leaves. A great windy day and blow towards road and they blow down street to corn field.Was excited to see they had a gutter attachment. No more ladders to climb.Plenty of power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, well-balanced, easy-to-start blower/vac with minimal drawbacks. I found, as stated in other reviews, that it must run a few moments to warm-up to full power, which is not a big deal. Power seems very adequate, well-balanced, and runs smooth. Once warmed up, the Easy2Start feature makes restarting easy and consistently effortless. The main downside for me is always having to use a tool (screwdriver tip) to unlock the blower tube when changing over to a vac or switching to the gutter attachment; this process could have been made much easier and tool-free. If you never change tubes or attachments, then no problem! I have found STIHL products to be reliable and high quality.
