    Less Time
    Brought the blower home and started using it right away. Frist impression is what a time saver. In a matter of a few minutes I had move more leaves than what would have taken about 15 or 20 minutes with my old blower. I bought the blower for home use and do not have any regrets. I would recommend this product to any home owner wishing to save time in the yard.

    Good Blower, but could use some User Improvements
    Good Blower with good power, however it could be much better if Sthil made improvements to make it easier to put on to hold the straps together so they do not slide off your shoulders. I use a Carabiner Clip to hold straps together, once on. Also, once on, and the blower shuts off, you have to remove to start again. Stihl should modify the blower so it can be started while wearing it. Stihl should consider these updates...why have a good blower, when they could have an outstanding blower!

    Another great Stihl product
    Great blower for large areas. Should have bought years ago. At first I was intimidated by the back pack style blower, but after fighting my large amount of leaves with my Stihl hand blower (I was younger then), I decided to go with the BR600. The BR600 starts easy, and was surprised by how balanced and lightweight it is. The time spent cleaning my 2 acre property was cut in half. If your thinking of buying a back pack blower, buy a Stihl!

    Great two in one product
    Both blower side and vac side work great. Bag could be bigger, maybe a backpack style bag with a larger capacity. I have a large mature oak trees and works great in and around the flower beds. However, it does not like the acorns. I have a lot of Sthil products, two chain saws, a weed trimmer, and now the blower vac. Great long lasting products.one of my chain saws is 42 years old and still works great. I'd like to see Sthil make a good snow blower . I highly recommend this product.

    First line of leaf defense.
    Our yard (2.5 ac.) is surrounded. The leaf gods know where to rest for the winter. My leaf life began in the 70's with a rake/tarp (blisters and days) and dread. My arsenal consists of a Little Wonder walk behind, back pack blower and the newest addition, Stihl 86-C. The walk behind moves the mountains but in a bull dozer manner. The 86-C has replaced the back pack and any rake. No longer do I have to rake between shrubs, gather small piles and have my wife comment on a poor cleanup. Wet or dry, ... read more the leaves no longer intimidate me and now I have the cleanest/neatest yard. This blower-vac is well balanced, easy to start, change from blow to vacuum and very dependable. Thank you.

    This Product is GREAT for leaf pickup!
    We bought the SH 86 C-E only for the shredder vac. I already use a STIHL BR600 Blower for blowing needs. The SH 86 C-E was bought for my wife who uses it only for leaf pick-up. She is very small, 5ft 110 lbs. We looked around to try and find a good quality vac for leaf pick-up and this unit is perfect. If my wife can easliy use this unit for a hour at a time and it work great then I would think almost anyone would be very happy with it as well. As I read the reviews I noticed the couple low ... read more ratings were for sticks getting caught in the impeller. We use this stricly for leaf pick-up which is what I think this unit is suppose to be built for. It does shread leaves GREAT! We are very happy and continue to be a huge STIHL Customer! We also own a Stihl Trimmer.

    Great handheld power.
    When my old blower broke I bought a BG 56CE. It did not have the power I needed, my local Stihl dealer let me trade up to BG 86 CE. It has great power to blow wet cedar tree stuff off my roof and out of my gutters. It is relatively quiet compared to my last blower. The engine runs so smooth, I don't get the pins and needles feelings in my hands after extended use, which is my favorite aspect of the BG 86. I also like the four year warranty (with purchase of Stihl gas:oil mix).

    The best big handheld blower on the market
    I was seeking another stihl blower to replace my retired stihl sh85. I bought this one. The 4 point spring anti vibes make this blower very comfy to use this machine has plenty of power for big and small jobs this blower is very easy to start and use (mine starts in 4 pulls- I use 50:1 canned fuel ethnol free). I highly recommend this blower.

    No other brand measures up to STIHL
    In past years, I always looked for the highest speed blower. That is, until the local STILHL dealer clued me in on what to look for in a good blower. Mainly the amount of air volume moved, not the speed. Bought my first one about 15 years ago and have stuck with the STIHL brand ever since. Am on my 4th blower now. The best starting engine I have ever owned.Thr easy start makes it much easier on my back, being 68 years old. After the success with the blower, I have since purchased your chainsaws ... read more (4 of them), string trimmer (3 of them), hedge trimmers an several hand tools. STIHL is the best, both in price, value, and dependability.

    Extremely easy assembly; two pieces make the nozzle & it's done!
    I bought this for my mother. She LOVES it!! It is very easy to carry, very quiet, but most importantly, very, very powerful! It truly gets the job done. I tried it also & found it easy to manipulate around the yard. It doesn't get hot around the handle. I have several other Stihl products & am glad I purchased this blower for her.

    Electric Blower review
    My first blower was a 2 cycle Stihl blower and is still working with my Brother in Portland, OR, its over 10 - 12 years old...works great. This electric blower is OK, but not as good as my old small gas blower

    Nice Blower
    I bought in to the Stihl system for the trimmer, but I love the blower as well. It has nice power and is easy to handle. Sometimes I wish there was a slightly smaller nozzle to generate more speed (even at less volume) for some jobs, but it has plenty power for most jobs. The fact that I would like to be able to use it for some places where I would use my compressor tells you that it has a lot of power. Every other cordless blower I ever owned was good for little more than leaves.

    Blowers that work without the noise
    This is how all blowers should operate. No starting cord to wreck your rotator cuff. Quiet enough to use without ear protection. The AP300 battery for my mower, hedge trimmer and now my blower does it all, without mixing gas & oil. The variable power trigger allows full blow and then light thrust to finalize your leaf pile. Great for blowing off sidewalks, steps and even use to dry my car to prevent water spots. My neighbor who runs his gas blower every day tried it and grudgingly admits that it ... read more works pretty well. I hope he sees the benefits of battery equipment soon. Quality design and assembly like all Stihl products.

    Outstanding quality My favorite yard power tool
    I have a Ryobi battery powered blower which I thought was fine, but I needed more power. I have a gas powered blower, Husqvarna, but it is a major pain to use, especially for small or quick jobs. I purchased a Stihl battery powered chain saw, so I already had an investment in the battery and charger which is not included in the blower.i bought the battery powered blower even though there were no reviews or hands on from sales person at the time. This tool is just awesome. Plenty of power to get ... read more any job done, obviously quiet compared to gas power. Have it just about a year now.use it several times a week, year round in Florida Easy to use and handle. Great battery life, quick charging. Compared to Ryobi product,it is like driving a BMW vs a scooter. If you can get past the price you will not be disappointed.

    Good backpack blower
    Bought this stihl br200 backpack blower to replace old handheld blower ( not a stihl). The stihl br 200 cranks very easily every time. It is light weight and comfortable to use. It is lacking in power a bit , however , it is plenty powerful to do the work around our property. Overall a very good backpack blower for the money. I have had this blower for a few months now and I have no regrets.

    Its a decent little blower
    I bought this blower in the spring of 2017 and i primarily use it for blowing grass off sidewalks. but of course i live in the northeastern area of the US and come the autumn and this little blower made very easy work of blowing major amounts of leaves from on side of my yard to the street or on to a tarp. My only complante of this blower that i wish that it had a bit bigger of an engine, so that i could easily blow wet leaves the kind that been stuck to the grass or mulch beds for a couple ... read more days. thats its only weakness!

    Great little backpack blower
    My wife purchased this little blower for me as a birthday/Father’s Day gift. I have had my eye on it for some time now at my local Stihl dealer. I love the fact that I have a great backpack blower now instead of a handheld blower. It’s so lightweight and it cranks on the first or second pull every time so far. I know that Stihl has a reputation for being quality equipment and it’s awesome that a homeowner can get that quality without having to sell off body parts to be able to afford it.
