The Stihl BGA 86 is a very powerful, easy to use and comfortable to operate cordless leaf blower. Perfect for professional use in large, urban areas. For removing leaves and dirt. 50% more blowing power than the BGA 85 and with reduced weight. Round nozzle, soft handle, three-setting length-adjustable blower tube. Flat nozzle for increased air speed available as an accessory. For long periods of use, we recommend the AR backpack battery.

Quiet and simple to use but very powerful, the speed of the BGA 86 can be easily adjusted with one hand, so you can clear leaves, dirt and debris with ease.

The BGA 86 is part of the AP System PRO Cordless range of tools, with interchangeable batteries – it is not compatible with the AK batteries in the COMPACT AK Cordless System.

Variable speed control
The variable speed control allows adapting the blowing force depending on the surfaces to clean.

Multi-function handle
Thanks to the multi-function handle, all the controls can be activated with one hand. The control level allows the user to continuously adjust the engine speed. Simple and reliable operation, no matter whether you are right or left-handed.

Blower tube with adjustable length
The blower tube can be adjusted to three different lengths to best fit the size of the user. This prevents unnecessary loss of power and performance due to the tube being too far away from the ground.

Highly efficient blowing unit
The ultra-compact blower unit is powered by a high-performance EC motor. In combination with the centre of gravity being close to the handle, the tool boasts very flexible and agile operation.

    A fine piece of kit – blows very effectively – no fumes (hurrah!) and I don’t keep keep getting my overalls sucked into the intake when using it left handed. It’s juicy though, so budget for a big battery or two.

  2. Paul (verified owner)

    Easy to setup and use out of the box. Quality product as you would expect from Stihl. Lots of blowing power for clearing leaves quickly. Well balanced. I’m using the AP300s rechargeable batteries which last about 25mins when fully charged which is fine for small to medium gardens. I simply swap the batteries for longer use. You could invest in a Stihl backpack battery if you wanted all day use but I don’t find necessary. Much easier to use than the petrol version – no fuel or fumes involved.

    Great leaf blower. Seems just as powerful as a petrol one. Big advantage of the excellent still cordless range is storing the equipment in the truck cab and not having petrol leaking on the seats!

    Just recently purchased a bja 86 leaf blower and Ap300s battery, wow what a game changer compared to my petrol blower. Really pleased with the purchase and the speedy delivery from Radmore and Tucker once again.

  5. Denis West (verified owner)

  6. John (verified owner)

    Fantastic product. Exactly what you would expect from stihl. Variable power is very useful. Highly recommended product

  7. Steve Smith (verified owner)

    Great leaf blower, good price, next day delivery. Blowing nozzle extends to a length that is comfortable for a 6ft 3in person to use. Powerful enough for all of my needs.

  8. David Hill (verified owner)

    Brilliant blower seems as powerful a stilhl petrol blower. Clears heavy wet leaves like magic. very controlable .

  9. AJ (verified owner)

    Other reviews said it is at least as powerful than the Stihl petrol equivalent and blow me down – they’re not wrong!

  10. Malcolm

    As powerful as my neighbours petrol machine. Nice to have the second battery as takes a full charge in the time that it takes to run the first one down

  11. Clive Pidgeon (verified owner)

    Excellent bit of kit. Light and powerful. Does use the battery quite quickly so get the bigger battery.
