    I am looking to buy a new Stihl BG 85 leaf blower and one dealer has a Stihl BG 85C blower and another has a BG 85D. What is the difference between the two?

    This looks like a good blower, lots of power and the balance feels good.

    Any input, good, bad & ugly would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    One might be the leaf vac model, but with the blower configuration on.

    Leaf vac model is the HG85, just bought one... ask the dealers. One may be a year old model?

    Done! Bought it - the BG-85C model. It's sitting next to my Lawnboy 2 cycle as I type ;)
