    Great for residential use...
    I bought this to replace an old homelite I was tired of tuning up every year. It is easy to configure to be a blower or leaf vacuum. Has decent blowing force that will move leaves and debris effectively without creating a mess. Would buy it again. Also using it to make leaf mulch to amend raised garden beds and berry patches. It does this very well.

    What you'd expect
    Decent handheld, choked down by emissions regulations a lot, but not STIHL's fault. People come in with a big misunderstanding that a 27cc handheld blower is going to blast away any pile of wet leaves across the lawn... this is false. Handhelds like this are designed to sweep away light debris like some dry leaves, grass clippings, dry your car, etc, not be the equivalent of a backpack. Good blower for WHAT IT'S DESIGNED for, not what some peoples expectations are. If you have a lot surrounded ... read more by trees and need to do serious leaf cleanup, get a backpack, if you want an easy to use tool to sweep off the deck/driveway/pathway, or clean up after you mowed the lawn, then get this.

    STIHL , If You want the Best
    Great little hand Blower , I had the one under this and wasn't happy with it , Sold it to a friend and He's tickled to dead with it, The one I bought BG56C-E is little bigger and just seems to do the Job better.... I've never had to put the starter rope more then 2 --3 times and it was running & Ready to go.... I've had few other blowers like this over the years, But I have learned, You use something a lot, It pays you to buy the best there is out there and for me , That's STIHL!

    It's great being cordless!
    I love not having to deal with an electrical cord. I am a small, older female, and needed a vac/blower that wasn't too heavy & started easily. This product accomplishes these requirements for me. I do have a little difficulty in pushing the tabs with a tool to change the tools! But can live with it. I think if you were stronger & had bigger hands this might not be an issue, just an annoyance. My husband likes using this product, except push tabs, too. Haven't had/used enough to know about the ... read more maintenance aspect.

    After six months
    Good concept, but has its limitations. I bought this as light duty blower and shredder for my landscaping business. It is six months old. First the cons. DO NOT buy the model with EZ recoil. After the guys stretched the internal spring 4 or 5 times, I coverted to the traditional recoil. Now it is durable! The other negative is the shredder has limitations. Not intended for big jobs or wet material, otherwise it works great. For the pros, light weight, agile, decent blower performance for a small ... read more package, great in small places, and reliable motor.

    This thing is great
    I bought this blower vac this spring to clean up last leafs leaves. This machine will clog if you try to suck up too many wet leaves. So I had to scatter them with the blower configuration then after they had some time in the sun to dry this machine in the vacuum configuration easily sucked them all up. I have been very please with this machine. Sense the leave clean up it gets used once a week to clean off my patio and sidewalks. It so far has been very easy to start. I will update this review ... read more once the machine gets some age on it

    Great Blower
    This blower is readily available to clean off my porch, blow the sawdust out of my shop, clean up my garage, and many other small chores around the home. No cords to drag around and no fuel to mess with. Just plug it into the charger after using. Love this blower

    Good value for the price.
    Great power and good battery life but should always have a back up battery.

    ease of starting but difficulty of attachments
    I truly like the blower but I would think Stihl could come up with a better way of attaching their attachments to the blower. The twist & lock is hard to do especially when trying to disconnect from blower. It is nearly impossible to do during cold weather. How about some kind of just pushing the attachment on with a clip & lock type connecting system. It is very frustrating. Thank you.

    Perfect for my yard
    My son has a backpack blower that is to big for my yard. I have 5000 sq. ft. to use a blower on. My son has 1 1/2 acres. His blower is a BR 500. Brought the blower home and gave it a try. Much to my surprise this is more than enough power. Possibly more than I need. Every thing Stihl says it is and more. I am going back today and get the gutter attachment because I do not like getting up to the roof. Easy start, loads of power, and easy to use. I have always believed spend the money for ... read more quality, you get what you pay for. Great value for the money

    Awesome Leaf Blower!
    I've had a BG86 blower for 2 years now and love it. I've owned the cheap box hardware store blowers in the past and they've all broken too quickly. This STIHL BG86 is really reliable and very easy to start no more than 2 pulls every time! If you have a lot of leaves to deal with then this is THE blower for you. The features are handy including the throttle lock so the throttle trigger doesn't have to be constantly pulled. Do your self a favor and buy one!

    Reliable replacement for my cordless
    This blower is clean, light, and allows my 8 year old to help in the yard clearing the driveway all summer. I am looking forward to leaf season for a change.

    I'm sold! Great blower!
    I've never had an electric blower before, but just moved to a smaller house and no longer needed so much lawn equipment. I have a small lot and small patio and driveway/walkway. This blower has as much power as I was used to on my previous gas blower, but you plug it in and turn it on--so simple! No gas/oil mixture to fool with, and it's super light weight! I love it! I didn't rate the 'dependability' heading above because I haven't had it that long.

    EXCELLENT
    I had a craftsman leaf blower.. just threw it in the trash... was goin to take it to my cabin, but after using the stihl 61, I'm just going to go buy another one for up north. Well worth the money!

    Why Did I Wait So Long To Buy It?
    First of, the dealer who I purchased it from, Freeman Creek Equipment was excellent. Friendly, knowledgeable, and gave me a demonstration of its features. The blower itself surpassed my expectations. I have a 1 acre property with mature oaks and maples. Needless to say, in the fall there are plenty of leaves. So much so that I am blowing them for several weeks. This blower has significantly cut down the time to do it. I like the ability to lock in various speeds.

    Impressive product
    Upgraded to the 500 and was amazed with the power, ease of use, quick start, and weight. What used to take me an hour now only takes 20 minutes.

    Great design for the urban leaf blower.
    Excactly what was needed in a noise conscience environment. Stihl enough power to lift wet leaves of the sidewalks. If I was to use it everyday I would probably go for the BR600 but since it is only used sparingly this does the job I bought it for.
