I have the Stihl BG85 handheld and the Stihl BR600 magnum. I've had the handheld for several years and it's a very reliable blower. My wife likes to use it to clean up the patio area because it's easy for her to handle and always starts. I have no idea if the BG85 is the "best" handheld out there but it works well for us. There is absolutely no comparison between the BG85 & the BR600. Hope that helps.
