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 137.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance all around No vibration issues at all that would otherwise put one's hand to sleep. A solid feel and a smooth runner. Starts with ease. Airflow output plenty steadily sufficient to handle light powdery snow for quick removal. I expect great leaf blowing capability given the chance this coming fall. Noise level is easy to handle. No issues. All around a great addition to my cleaning gear! My first Stihl purchase and couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from strong, reliable Excellent machine. Great velocity at the wand exit. Leaves,even when damp, blow really well. A particular surprise was how well the vacuum/shredder option works. It seems, and is, a bit ungainly but that is a small price for effectively removing the fallen tree leaves from extensive Pachysandra ground plantings. Works great in any garden where you don't trust a leaf rake to be near your tender plants. Prior to owning this machine our blower use was limited to primarily fall season. But after seeing the field maintenance fellows take care of the Buffalo football line markings in heavy snow...we started removing new snow from our paths with the Sthil!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great blower overall. Gutter attachment not very secure Only complaint is gutter attachment is not a positive lock with this model. Bought them together. Blower works great otherwise. Could use a shoulder strap if doing a large area.

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.
