When ultimate strength meets ultimate simplicity, it's a match made in heaven. The STIHL BG 86 C-E combines the best of both worlds, combining the BG 86's no-compromise power and comfort with Easy2StartTM technology. Starting the engine is now simple and quick for almost anyone, requiring only a long, leisurely pull of the start cord rather than a harsh jolt. This blower has a streamlined beginning mechanism that includes a unique stop switch that automatically returns to the start position, as well as a semi-automatic choke lever that prevents flooding. This blower, like the BG 86, comes with both flat and round nozzles for greater job variety.
The STIHL BG 86 C-E Blower is a powerful and durable blower that is great for clearing your yard or driveway of leaves, trash, and debris. It has a powerful engine, which is easy to start and that makes it easy to blast away even the toughest materials.
Built in the USA
A majority of STIHL gasoline-powered units sold in the United States are built in the United States from domestic and foreign parts and components.
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.
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.
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.
Soft Grip Handle
This handle design provides a secure and comfortable grip.
HD2 Air Filter
The new HD2 air filter on this unit is washable, providing an 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.
