Suitable for both commercial and heavy-duty domestic use, the Stihl BG 86 C-E creates a jet of air powerful enough to shift even sticky, downtrodden leaves with ease. Key to its high performance levels is its 27.2cc two-stroke engine, which employs stratified-charge technology for improved fuel-economy and reduced emissions (fuel-consumption is reduced by around 20% when compared to conventional two-stroke units). Engine-features include ErgoStart, which reduces the required pulling-force on the starter-rope by a third; and push-button fuel-primer, which ensures you’ll have no trouble achieving ignition from cold. Despite its powerful engine and robust build-quality, the Stihl BG 86 C-E Handheld Petrol Leaf-Blower weighs-in at just 4.5kg. Its lightweight construction works with Stihl’s comprehensive four-point vibration-damping system to ensure operator-fatigue is kept at bay for longer during time-consuming applications. A throttle-lock further enhances user-comfort.nnThe Stihl BG 86 C-E comes as standard with a both a round nozzle and curved flat nozzle (the latter focuses the airflow and is ideal when clearing stuck-down debris). A gutter-cleaning kit and a vacuum conversion-kit are available separately.
