Rated 5 out of 5 by make leafs dissapaer ... leafs got blown from the neighbor on my property only to get blow them back when it's my turn. With the vacuum, I can actually compact and get rid of them.Stihl starts very easy, has a strong vacuum, and compacts the leafs. August 18, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by SH 56 C blower/vac I purchased this blower for home use to clean up leaves and grass clippings.I have had it worked on by a Stihl dealer 2 times and have only had it a year and a half and motor is shot.It was supposed to have a 2 yr warranty but can't be fixed.1 st problem was the spark arrestor being clogged had tuned up as well after 6 months2nd problem was told I had bad gas but same mix I use in my Stihl trimmer3rd today found dirt had some how entered the intake system.Stihl product was always maintained and serviced and I have 20 yrs of mechanic experience.Stihl products are supposed to be better and it seems like they have been made to cheap to compete with others in the industry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by This blow/vac is worth every penny!!! I've owned this product for about six weeks and have used it every weekend. I've used the shredder system twice. The easy to start system STIHL has is second to none. I've tried several other brands, and finally decided to spend the extra money and get a well known and reliable blow/vac. I wish I would have bought this a long time ago.The ease of use is superb. Switching over from blower to shredder is very easy; Especially after you do it the first time. Don't waste your money on other brands. Bite the bullet and get a STIHL. June 1, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by too much money for "average" trimmer Only average power, and the vacuum feature is less than that. BIGGEST disappointment: no constant ON switch. Never having had any blower without one, it didn't occur to me to ask. Buyer Beware!! It will cost even more money for this option on the BG 86 model..First and last Stihl May 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Typical great Stihl quality. Only problem I have with this unit is the leaf bag. Wish they would come up with a better sling to get it to stay on your shoulder better. Easy starting and light. Love it. April 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great vacuum for those tight places in your yard This thing does what it is designed to do. Great for vacuuming up leaves all over the yard. Instead of making a mess trying to blow leaves out of tight areas you can vacuum and be done. I only use the vac on dryer leaves so I haven't had any clogging problems. Great also for clean up after edging, mowing etc. Bag can get heavy as it fills but that just tells you its time to dump. Runs like a champ. So easy to start. Very happy with my purchase as I am with my Stihl chain saw. March 24, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Blower is Great, Shredder is Sub Par The concept is great, but the shredder itself clogs too easily and the bag fills too quickly. It felt like I ended up spending more time emptying the bag and reattaching it to the main system or fixing a clog than I did actually shredding debris. January 1, 2016
