Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product We use ours for cigarette butt removal mostly and it works perfectly!! September 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Machine I purchased this machine because I live in an older neighborhood with lots off big trees so leaf cleanup is a major project. The SH 86 C-E is easy to start and it fires up every time. The power is great and the vacuum works well. Switching between the blower and the vacuum is a little awkward but it doesn't take very long. You can feel the quality of the machine as you use it. September 12, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Cannot do more than tiny piles of dry leaves I have some oak leaves, about 15 inches high, about a foot and a half wide, this choked on them within an hour. It is totally useless for anything but small stacks of dry leaves. Lost all sucking power in first hour. Choked on my leaves almost immediately. I buy only Stilh products but this one is junk and it goes back to ACE tomorrow for a full refund. August 14, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a well built product This is a overall great product It is easy to start, and its powerful but light weight.This is my first STIHL product but it won't be my last. It is a well built product and I would recommend it to anyone. June 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works wonderful I should have got this vac years ago. works great on leaves and cleaning up the trimmings from the shrubs like nothing. chops everything so fine its a space saver when cleaning up. starts first pull every time. only let down is when it runs out of gas because I'm not paying attention due to ease of use. Seems like I got a system down when cleaning leaves up now. I usually start out blowing most of them in a pile then change over to my shredder bac and let this machine start eating away. May 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light weight Just bought this blower Shredder. Starts very easy the catch bag is good size if any larger would be bulky and it would get a lot heavier. Shreds the leaves fast and quick have many other Stihl products and would only buy Stihl products April 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to start Bought one today at my local stihl dealer. I am very satisfied with the power of the vacuum easy to clean out and dump bag. Saved me hours or work cleaning around house flower beds and around the yard. Cant wait to use it again. Also Rob at cumberland outdoor power is great to deal with A+ customer service when you are dealing with him. March 31, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by above my expectation First. I just purchased this today and used it for a couple of hours. My leaves were dry and smaller in size. This machine was very comfortable to use. I purchased it solely for the vacuum leaf shredder capability. I had read other reviews that stated was difficult to switch from blower to vacuum and even though i only did it once i don't plan on doing that again. I have a good blower so i intentionally bought this knowing i wouldn't have to deal with the change over issue. Even in the store i could tell i wanted the SH 86 model because even holding onto it felt so much better. Remember the Sh 86 model has the rubber grip and i felt no vibration at all when it was on. I was able to pick up leaves from rock by just leaving it at idle. The leaves came up but the rocks didn't. I used it 90 percent of the time at idle. I read some reviews that mentioned the zipper on the bag didn't unzip far enough but when i emptied my bag it all came out very easy and the zipper was a non issue. I did pick up a pile of leaves and used the machine at higher than idle for that. I didn't feel the need for a bigger bag as some have mentioned. I felt it was the right size for the machine. I did purchase the Oil with the machine which gave me a 4 year warranty instead of 2 years. Even at idle the machine chewed up the leaves really well. I understand that the higher the rpm the better it would chew stuff up but my smaller leaves worked perfect at idle. At higher rpms i did notice some dust through the bag but it was not a problem. I think large leaves would require a higher rpm just to get it up and down the tube into the metal teeth where it gets chewed up. Starting was super easy. After it was warm i didn't need the choke but used the trigger a bit when i pulled the cord and that allowed it to start with first pull.I really appreciate that Stihl products are made in America. I did my research on this product and am very happy with my purchase and am going to enjoy the time saving tool. March 19, 2016
