I've got a BG 85 but I don't know if it has a c after it .It does real good as a matter of fact.

My bud Tom the tree guy stopped in one night after I got off work with both a new BG 86 and an 85 his workers backed a chipper over and ruined the casing .He was mad as a wet hen , gave me the blower .I landed one from flea bay with a blown rod, swapped  out the parts and it ran better than his brand new one .

Let me add something .I have two Stihl  blowers, that BG 85 and a BR 400 back pack .I will have to say this they are very dependable .They both have primer buttons on the carb .  Even after sitting for 4-5 months  they usually start on 3 or 4 pulls .One if it's already been started .

Al,
We use the little BG blowers exclusively and they are rock solid, especially for the price..

60 bucks would have been cheap enough .If you find another let me know .I have some usable parts from the crushed one as well as a complete engine from the donor .I have no idea about the engine, never fooled with it .

Funny these things and weed wackers ,like saws sit around unused and when the come comes to use they won't start .People trot off to the store and buy another .It's usually either the carb or fuel line ,easy fix.

Bg 85 and 86 are great little blowers. I have ran them for years. My old boss had 3 or 4 of them. Very reliable. I had 2 86's when I first started my tree bus. Than moved up to 75cc redmax backpack blower for cleaning up stump grinding spray and helping to get the small sticks out of taller grass. If you do get one let me know think a have a PDF service manual.
FEAR NO TREE. FEAR GOD.
