Handheld blower choice?

Looking for some advice from the forum. Currently have a Makita and an Echo backpack blower, but my handheld is a cheap but not so cheerful Ryobi. The vibrations leave my hand with the shakes, so stopped using it. What would be your choice for a good and low vib handheld blower.Thanks,Jeff

    Stihl bg 86 is good.
    • I Agree. Sihl BG 86. Very light and no vibration. Stihl quality and reliability.

    Stihl cordless! Just got one to add to my cordless range, it's great!
    • Which model did you get?

    Just started with the cordless and the ego was powerful much as the bg 85 but expect stihl to be about the same.

    Another vote for the Stihl BG-86. Powerful and the handle's isolated from the motor so very little vibration.

  • Looks like the stihl bg86 is the winner, now to start shopping, cheers guys.
