Stihl BG 86 handheld Professional blowers – Suitable for large areas & Garden Services




Stihl BG 86 – Our most powerful handheld petrol blower


For the toughest landscaping challenges, professionals turn to our most powerful gasoline-powered handheld blower, the STIHL BG 86.

It features a fuel-efficient, low-emission gasoline-powered engine, and includes both flat and round nozzle attachments for better job versatility.

The blower is also one of our most comfortable to use, with a four-spring anti-vibration system, a soft-grip handle and our ElastoStart™ shock-absorbing starter.



The HD2 filter has superior filtering properties when compared to our original HD filter. It has significantly finer pores than foam filters and filters even the finest dust. In addition, the new HD2 filter is easily to clean. As a result, the filter allows for a much longer service life.

STIHL 2-MIX engine with stratified charge system

2-stroke engine with stratified charge. A fuel-free layer of air is created between the burned charge in the combustion chamber and the fresh charge in the crankcase, reducing the amount of fuel lost during the charge cycle. This results in more power with a lower weight, up to 20% lower fuel consumption than regular 2-stroke engines and significantly reduced exhaust emissions.

Anti-vibration system

Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to longer-term effects of blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL have therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system where by the oscillations from the machines engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles allowing for more comfortable and safer operation.

Throttle lock with built in stop switch

The running machine switches off immediately after a brief press of a button. Once the machine is at a standstill, the ignition activates again automatically, meaning it is always ready to start.

One handled control with soft grip area

For a secure and comfortable grip. The integrated anti-static system counters electrostatic charging.

STIHL ElastoStart

STIHL ElastoStart reduces the shock caused by the compression of the engine during starting. The compression shock is taken away from the user’s joints and muscles through a spring or rubber element in the starter handle.

Manual fuel pump (Purger)

A small fuel pump delivers fuel to the carburettor at the touch of a button. This reduces the number of starting strokes required following extended breaks in operations.
