Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for my wife My wife recently borrowed an 86 C-E from a family member and immediately decided it was time to "trade up" from her old electric unit. After getting her own unit she found the 86 CE very easy to start and has enjoyed months of care-free use. My only complaint is that she now has to make sure every leaf and/or pine needle is gone almost from the second it hits the ground. October 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A very Reliable product This product is only used around the home residence. Without question, the blower has more than exceeded my expectations of reliability and ease of use. During the fall season, the blower gets used at intervals lasting more than two hours due to the heavy down-slaught of leaves. My next Stihl product will be a 20-inch chainsaw. October 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product wish I bought this the first time I now have both a trimmer and the blower/shredder vac. I have to say you get what you pay for. Both units start easy and operate flawlessly each time I use them. I wouldn't tell people to buy any other brands.I have had other names like craftsman and Troy built which I thought would be good products but I have always been left with problems shortly after owning. I finally bought a Honda mower three years ago after a craftsman mower just over a year old quit. Sthil is a company true to giving the customer a great product that you can trust year after year. With product support and great dealers to help you throughout your ownership."Thanks Sthil keep up the great work"Zach October 17, 2016

Rated 4 out of 5 by wanted a little more power Bought this last year for home use.Was hoping for a little more power with a gas engine.Didn't feel like the backpack blower was the route to go at that time.If I could trade it in now id upgrade... October 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Very Good First blower I have ever owned. We have mostly fir needles but it works very good on those. Not as good when they are wet but its better than using a hose and water. Starts easy and balance is very good. September 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best blower made This is the best blower I've owned and/or have researched. This blower moves wet leaves that is matted. I never have a problem with starting this model blower. The price is very competitive for this blower compared to the competition. September 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceptional Product I recently purchased and had a few months. It starts up very easily and the vibration dampening system is amazing as your hands do not get numb. It is also relatively quiet and powerful as well. I would recommend spending a few extra bucks to get a good quality product. Great Investment! August 29, 2016
