    I like my 55 a lot, but I am sure the 86 can only be better

    I have the 65, takes like 6 pulls before it runs. My 85 I sold a while back only like 1-2 pulls and it was running. I like that handheld, very handy for under shrubs and tight spaces.

    Mine is pretty beat up and used, but almost always starts in 2 pulls, what condition is its air filter in, cause when mine is dirty is takes like 10 pulls to start or wont even start

    Filter is only a couple months old, that blower is rarely used, just for tight spots and things like that.

    Then I do not know why is is acting up but if you do not use it much then it does not really matter. If my helper or dad is helping me we often will use the sthil as well as the kawasaki bp

    yep Ive worn out one bg55 and replaced it this spring with another.....quicker to grab it from the cage than to get a backpack out of the rack and put it back when done....strong lil blower for the $$$$
