BG 86 C-E

BG 86 C-E
Our most powerful handheld blower, made even better with Easy2Start™ technology.

Product Description

Ultimate power meets ultimate simplicity. The STIHL BG 86 C-E is the best of both worlds, offering the same no-compromise power and comfort found in the BG 86, but with our Easy2Start™ technology. Now, starting the engine is fast and easy for just about anyone – just a long slow pull of the start cord instead of a hard jerk. To make it even easier, this blower has the simplified starting system that incorporates a specialized stop switch that automatically returns to the start position, as well as a semi-automatic choke lever that helps prevent accidental flooding. And just like the BG 86, this blower comes with both flat and round nozzles for better versatility on the job.

    More information

  • STIHL Easy2Start™
    The STIHL Easy2Start™ system makes starting STIHL® outdoor power tools almost effortless, eliminating the need for a strong pull of the starting cord. This advanced starting system is designed to make starting STIHL® products fast and easy. The specific system may vary by model, but in each case, a quick pull overcomes the engine’s compression to minimize the strength and effort required to start. Available on selected products.
  • Soft Grip Handle
    This handle design provides a secure and comfortable grip.
  • Anti-Vibration System
    STIHL has a system for minimizing the vibration levels of handheld outdoor power equipment. The STIHL anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.
  • Throttle Trigger Lock with Built-In Momentary Stop Switch
    The built-in stop switch allows the user to turn off the engine with a simple press of the button or lever. When the engine is off, the throttle lock automatically returns to the “start” setting. Your power tool will be ready to be started when you’re ready to get back to work.
  • Purge Pump Primer
    The purge pump primer feature enables the user to prime the carburetor with fuel, enabling easier starting. The purge pump primer is designed in a way that the operator cannot flood the machine by priming the carburetor too many times. Flooding the engine is still possible if the choke is not removed after the engine fires.
  • HD2 Air Filter
    The new HD2 air filter on this unit is washable, providing extremely long filter life and lowering maintenance costs. The large surface area allows for longer run times between cleanings and high performance even while operating in dusty and dry conditions. Overall, the HD2 air filter provides better protection of the engine compared to standard air filters.

Reviews

BG 86 C-E is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 194.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed with the blower. Very powerful. I have resisted purchasing a blower for many years because they seemed noisy and unnecessary most of the time. I am so impressed with this blower. It is so powerful and quiet. I cant believe what it can do and how fast it works. I am mostly blowing off porches and sidewalks. It is so powerful it will blow the rocks off my gravel driveway when directed in certain way. But, if I hold it at the correct angle the rocks stay in place. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to start and runs flawlessly, We have used another brand and found that they make versions differently for BIG BOX STORES than they do for ACE HARDWARE.. as a result, we were disappointed and decided to go with the STIHL B G 86-C with its easy start feature it makes blowing our leaves a literal breeze. Thanks to the guys at ACE for showing us the features and suggesting The Stihl blower. It’s great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Carburator had to be changed after one year of domestic usage Carburetor had to be changed after one year of domestic weekly usage (not a pro intensive usage).These gas power machine are always far less reliable than the electric ones which can last 10 years without problem.It's not only Stihl. I have a fire pump and a high pressure washer that does not work anymore for carburetor issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality Blower works very well and starts easy. Great for those jobs that always pop up in the yard after a windy day, I really appreciate the craftsmanship of Stihl tools for the outdoors. Good stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product has great features I purchased the BG 86 C-E from Western- Equipment in Altus Oklahoma. I have used and owned about 6 different blowers in the past. And the Stihl product has them all beat with the easy start feature, it is light weight and puts out large volume of air!! Have been extremely pleased with this product and for home use you could not ask for a better blower!!
