BG 86 C-E is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 147.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice! Does everthing I need it too and more. It is easy to start. It has nice balance so it is easy to control and it overly heavy. It is much quieter than other blowers I have used. I really like the fact that the throttle has the ability to be locked into position so I don't have to hold the trigger down when doing a larger job. Runs for a long time on a tank of fuel. Thanks Stihl!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Starts every time and no cords to deal with Bought this for consumer use with our ~4,000 sq ft backyard. Had an electric blower, but didn't use it that often because it was too much trouble to get out the 100' extension cord every time I wanted to do a quick clean up. With the BG86, all it takes is one or two pulls and the blower is running. That makes it really easy to pull it out for a quick tidy up. The power is perfect for our yard. Full power easily gets things out of the artificial turf and for other areas the idle is enough to get the loose leaves without disturbing the mulch or plants. It is also handy for drying off the synthetic wicker patio furniture after it rains, just like the dryer in a car wash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy starting Great blower, easy starting and comfortable to hold. A little pricey but well worth it for the dependability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job finished with great power to weight ratio I have been impressed with my STIHL BG 86 blower since its purchase. It is lightweight, quiet, well balanced, and powerful. These features enable my wife to use it with ease. I have owned and replaced several different brands of blowers from "big box" stores. I needed a blower that I could depend on and not require repeated visits to the repair shop. The BG 86 from STIHL exceeds my expectations. It is used on both our 3ac home site and our 70ac tree farm. Its a worthy member of my growing arsenal of STIHL power tools.
