    Great Blower
    Replaced my 30 year old blower for this back pack. And I love it, great power and easy to use. Need a third strap between the two shoulder straps, not a big deal but would be nice. Would recommend this to anyone. We have lots of trees and thus leaves and this is a great tool for our property.

    Absolutely the best blower I've owned.
    This blower is the best blower I have ever owned. I can work for hours with it on my back. It does much better than my bagger on the tractor ever did. I'm glad I spent the extra money and got the bigger one.

    Excellent Blower
    I bought this blower to clear my new yard. I live in the woods and have about 3/4 acre of yard surrounded by oaks and maples and pines. This blower has surpassed my expectations. It has handled the carpet of leaves that lands in the yard and will blow a 10" high pile with no problem. It will run for an hour and a half on a tank of fuel. I highly recommend this blower. It's easy on the back too. I love it so much, I convinced my brother to buy one.

    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!

    It's a stihl !!!!
    I purchased the BG 86 this morning from the local Stihl dealer. He poured fuel into the tank and it started on the second pull. I got it home and it again started on the second pull. I used it for half an hour to move a lot of pine needles and leaves. It was comfortable to use, didn't kick to one side like my old Craftsman that was only 3 years old and stopped running. Hopefully this blower will continue to work as well as my Stihl chainsaw, grass trimmer and hedge trimmer have.

    Has excellent blowing power!
    I have been in the tree maintenance business since 1994. I was using Echo until this latest purchase. Saw the BG 86 as a replacement for the tired Echo. Now it is Stihl I depend on for every job. I have used Stihl chain saws , since the 80s!

    This is one sweet machine!
    Starts fast and easily as long as you start it as instructed in your manual. It has superb power and is comfortable to operate, as long as you keep your posture correct and don't slouch your shoulders. That being said, this blower is the best I've operated in my 30 yrs. experience and I've tried a few different brands over those years. Best of all it's MADE IN AMERICA! (always keep fresh gas or store as recommended in the owners manual, I always use a fuel preservative in all my equipment before ... read more storage with great results)

    Pushing Leaves
    Working almost 3 acres of mixed woodland. Bought this today and 5 tanks of gas later I can say I put a major dent in the leaves and pine needles. Almost bought an echo which are cheaper but Stihl has always delivered on their other products. I have a few. Wish we could burn these leaves like we did as kids.

    Very powerful
    Good ergonomics, very powerful. Starts very good. Can't stand small engines that are hard to start. If it does not start on the second pull its out of gas. I run only non ethanol fuel to reduce build up and for extended fuel life. I have a lot of trees. Oaks and hickory. This thing blows large piles of hickory nuts almost like leaves. Had it for a year now and it gets a real workout at my place. I replaced a smaller husqvarna with this thing when it got hard to start. It runs circles around any ... read more blower I have ever used

    Excellent power, shoulder straps lacking
    I have several other Stihl power products but when my old backpack blower recently broke I replaced it with the BR600. The BR600 has excellent power, easy to start, and has cut my leaf blowing time considerably. My only complaint is the shoulder strap setup is very uncomfortable compared to my old blower. The shoulder straps are to thin and tend to twist and the padded sections are to narrow. I find myself spending too much time readjusting the straps while operating the unit.

    Best blower ever. period.
    This blower pays for itself very quickly. Solid, easy and fast starting machine. Am able to blow leaves that have been rained on as if they were dry. Huge piles of leaves just blown into the woods, then I blow the forest floor clean just for fun and because I can! Big wet Aspen leaves to pine needles this blows 'em up and rolls the pile away with ease.

    The BR430 is the power I need
    I have a BG86 hand blower which has worked well, yet did not have the power to blow piles of leaves. The BR430 is new and has all the power I need. The BG86 starts easily. The BR 430 is trickier in that once the engine is started, you have to reach over and nudge the throttle lever. If not quick enough, the engine quits and has to be restarted with a few pulls. While relatively new in usage, the BR430 was a good choice.

    Another great stihl product
    Purchased a br430 from Bairs in North Canton Ohio was unsure of what unit to buy and was upgrading from a old 55 hand blower the salesman who seemed to also be a stihl maintenance tech was super helpful and knowledgeable. I have had the chance to use the blower about 12 times and it works awesome has great power and really lifts everything up and off your lawn or concrete! Hope it last as long as my stihl saws, weed eater and my old blower.... Thanks Doug A

    Right tool for the Job
    Finally up sized my backpack this year and sooooo glad I did. This handled 2+ acres and 4+ hours of non stop work without a hiccup and re fueled far less than my older smaller backpack. Wet leaves? No problem. Piles of leaves you could hide a Volkswagen behind? It will move those too. Right tool for the job. Very happy with it.

    Great for ladies too!
    After my divorce my nephew lent me his old Stihl blower and bagger from his landscaping business. This was the blower that was not secured and fell off the truck and hit the pavement, but it still worked like a dream. I appreciated it because it had the bagger feature and was easy to start. Long story short. He moved the blower and bagger went with him and I went out the next weekend and purchased the same model with the bagging feature. Thank you for building such a dependable, easy to start ... read more durable piece of yard equipement.

    A great step-up blower
    The BG86C costs a little more than some similar appearing Stihl models, but well worth it for stronger blowing power and easy starting...but definitely follow all the manufacturer's instructions to assure best performance. I suggest Stihl engineers should redesign the method of how the blower tube sections twist together. They're darn difficult to un-twist if you want to shorten the blower discharge for tight spaces. All-in-all, fine machine.

    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).
