Rated 5 out of 5 by from Initial observations of a new product We bought the BG86C-E on the recommendation of the salesperson and our previous history with other Stihl products. My initial observation is that it performs well and meets all our expectations. The blower has good power and is easy to start, a feature that my wife appreciates.All in all it is a typical Stihl product that exceeds our initial expectations for their products. We will see how well it holds up over time

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Seems under powered. This was not the one I wanted, but like everything else that I have tried to buy from Stihl, it was either out of stock, and had to be ordered. Not happy at all about this keep happening to me. But what bugs me the most, the small parts need due to wear called consumables like blades and bump caps, I had to keep ordering to get. How can you folks do this to your customers? It is truly unlike any German company I know to have this take place. I worked as a mechanic for many years directly for Mercedes-Benz Truck Assembly Plant, and if something like this took place, heads would roll. I will not be buying anymore of your products. I now get my consumables from aftermarket parts companies until they quit completely on me. The additional process now of filling out the store's online computer by the customer is just one more added inconvenience too. I am 58 years old, and it is difficult to stand on my feet in front of a computer screen now to fill out your warranty information. Not a good idea at all whomever came up with that one. Please remove me from your email lists, I do not wish to keep getting these surveys. Hopefully this is clear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great leaf blower I bought the BG86 blower 2 months ago for use on our acreage. I have an electric blower but got tired of the cord. Blower is great, i use it weekly. I would highly recommend this blower, starts right up, has 2 different blower tubes which is nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed with the blower. Very powerful. I have resisted purchasing a blower for many years because they seemed noisy and unnecessary most of the time. I am so impressed with this blower. It is so powerful and quiet. I cant believe what it can do and how fast it works. I am mostly blowing off porches and sidewalks. It is so powerful it will blow the rocks off my gravel driveway when directed in certain way. But, if I hold it at the correct angle the rocks stay in place. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to start and runs flawlessly, We have used another brand and found that they make versions differently for BIG BOX STORES than they do for ACE HARDWARE.. as a result, we were disappointed and decided to go with the STIHL B G 86-C with its easy start feature it makes blowing our leaves a literal breeze. Thanks to the guys at ACE for showing us the features and suggesting The Stihl blower. It’s great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Carburator had to be changed after one year of domestic usage Carburetor had to be changed after one year of domestic weekly usage (not a pro intensive usage).These gas power machine are always far less reliable than the electric ones which can last 10 years without problem.It's not only Stihl. I have a fire pump and a high pressure washer that does not work anymore for carburetor issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality Blower works very well and starts easy. Great for those jobs that always pop up in the yard after a windy day, I really appreciate the craftsmanship of Stihl tools for the outdoors. Good stuff.
