Rated 3 out of 5 by from This product is underpowered compared to older models I had a BG56 blower that did a fantastic job, I gave it to my grandsons for their mowing operation. I thought I would buy a bigger more powerful blower since I have a lot of leaves in the fall to clean up. This BG86 is a sick under powered blower that does not even preform as good as the smaller BG56. Personally I am sadly disappointed with this product as far as power is concerned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BG 86 As with all Stihl professional grade products, this particular blower is one I would recommend. I have been well pleased with it and have no regrets on the purchase. It is lightweight but very well built. Starts every time and does what it was meant for. I actually had a smile on my face when I used it for the very first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best handheld on the market I have a unique job that allows me to use many consumer grade handheld leaf blowers, and when it came time for me to purchase my own, I chose a Stihl. I LOVED my BG55, and was very happy with it for many years until it was stolen from my garage. I decided to replace it with the new BG86, and I don't even miss my 55. Stihl's new antivibration system is amazing, and the new blower design eliminates the slight centrifugal drift the Stihl blowers had just a few years ago. If you're in the market for a new handheld that really blows, look no further than Stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to start. So easy to use When my old gas powered blower gave up the ghost I was sure that I wanted a Stihl. After talking with the guys at the hardware store I selected the BG 86 for it's easy start and ease of use. Have had the blower for about a month now and it is so easy to use my wife does most of the blowing duties. How great is that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this product has been everything i expected and more. this is my second blower and the improvement since my first blower have been great. The noise level reduction has been dramatically reduced compared to my first blower, which is very critical to me when operating this blower.again highly recommend a STIHL!
