I have a Stihl BG86 (the replacement for the 85) and it has proven to be a reliable blower. It does not have the power of my 550, however, but I do like it for the quick cleanup jobs. There may be more powerful handhelds out there but it seems that the transition to when a backpack makes sense cannot be far above the output of the BG86.
