    Super functioning product with great quality.
    I purchased the Stihl BGE71 blower in June 2013. I've used it quite a few times and it meets all of my high expectations. I went w/ this model due to the two speed switch, the lower speed does come in handy when in tight spaces, in my garage, etc. This item is lightweight and of high quality. I have no problems with the cord. I would have went with the battery powered unit except it was a very high price and fairly low runtime. The electric product is great. No gas/oil/carb to mess with. Plug ... read more it in and its ready to go. My 50' cord does fine with most of my jobs. I add a second 50' cord when I need to get out just a bit further.

    Excellent leaf blower!
    I bought this on a recommendation from the local Stihl dealer- Green Thumb. This blower starts easily, is comfortable to hold, and has more power than I really need. What I needed was a blower to clean off a large concrete area and long walkway that gets a lot of debris on it from trees. This blower "blew" through it in minutes. This is a solid unit made from quality materials and I really like the "Made in America" idea as well. The dealer gassed it up and tested it for me before I left.

    Still quality, as usual
    I've owned Stihl chainsaws for years and have always been extremely pleased. I purchased this blower and am once again extremely pleased. It starts easily, every time. It has plenty of power and is light and comfortable to use.

    Light and amazing
    I have been doing landscaping for over a year for extra income besides my full time job. I have wanted a Stihl product for a while and my first purchase was this blower. My wife wanted me to buy a cheaper blower from Home Depot like a toro brand, after seeing all the issues other guys were having with other brands my decision was easy. The blower is alittle pricey but it started up on the first pull and I can't believe how light and powerful it is compared to other blowers. Also it is super ... read more quiet. Anyone can use this blower due to its lightweight. I always try to get the best. I believe Stihl is the best for landscaping.

    Good power from a battery operated blower.
    Very pleased with this battery operated blower. Lightweight and ergonomically designed. Plenty of power to blow debris off of my drive-way and patio with little noise compared to gas powered blowers.

    Great Product
    Bought this tool as an afterthought but couldn't be happier. My Stihl gas chainsaw died and needed replacement, got tired of mixing gas and oil and decided to go battery. But after buying charger and battery for chainsaw decided better off also getting blower (my plug in electric blower had also recently quit) since already had fixed cost in battery and charger. So guess which tool I use every few days? This blower is terrific, certainly quiet compared to electric and gas, and does great job ... read more clearing our long driveway and patio. Couldn't be happier with product. Chainsaw also great but not needed as much.

    Outstanding quality My favorite yard power tool
    I have a Ryobi battery powered blower which I thought was fine, but I needed more power. I have a gas powered blower, Husqvarna, but it is a major pain to use, especially for small or quick jobs. I purchased a Stihl battery powered chain saw, so I already had an investment in the battery and charger which is not included in the blower.i bought the battery powered blower even though there were no reviews or hands on from sales person at the time. This tool is just awesome. Plenty of power to get ... read more any job done, obviously quiet compared to gas power. Have it just about a year now.use it several times a week, year round in Florida Easy to use and handle. Great battery life, quick charging. Compared to Ryobi product,it is like driving a BMW vs a scooter. If you can get past the price you will not be disappointed.

    Solid performer
    I like the idea that you sell through small business owners who provide great service and provide support at purchase as wellas after the sale. Quality, performance are a key factor to my purchase ex performance beside being made in USA.

    Excelent for General public
    Although electric seems new for STIHL I took a chance at the best brand name. So far it has been great through the fall season. I would have liked the two speed offered with the BGE71 but did not want/need the bagger nor additional expense.

    Built to last
    I purchased the BGE 61 in the month of January and I have not had a chance to use it for it's intended purpose as of yet because any stray leaves that may exist on my property are buried under a foot or so of snow. I have, however, used it for MY intended purpose, to dry my car after washing without creating any swirl marks on my vehicle. It performed quietly and efficiently to my complete satisfaction. I do tend to wash my cars very early on weekend mornings, so the BGE 61's lower volume should ... read more be appreciated when spring finally comes if my neighbor's windows are open for fresh air. I certainly look forward to incorporating the BGE 61 for its primary use where, I'm sure, it will perform over and above my expectations in comparison to anything I've used to blow leaves during my Fall and Spring cleanups in the past. I always believed; Buy less but buy good. Stihl, thank you for not skimping or cutting corners and doing what it takes to build a superior product.

    This product is great.
    Bought this blower 2 weeks ago. The ease of starting could be a little better, but it performs wonderfully. I have used it to blow off sidewalks, driveway, and cleaning off debris from my zero turn mower. Love not having to drag around a 100 ft. extension cord. I also use it to blow leaves away from structures to mow over them and get rid of rows of grass clippings when the mowing is done. Best big boy toy that I have purchased since I bought my zero turn mower.

    This blower is very reliable, has good power and pretty darn tough. I have one at home and four at my lawn care company. The four get used EVERY DAY. Have had no problems with them except one pull cord, after two years of every day use. They do have some problems with vapor locking when the ambient temperature climbs over 100, but I just fill the fuel tank, and pour some water over them if needed, and the fire right up. Best investment you can make in a hand blower.

    BG 55 more power than expected
    The BG55 does an amazing job tackling any job that you put infront of it. I originally got so I could just blow away gras clippings off sidewalks and patios. During the fall I used it to blow leaves all around my (4.5 acre) yard. It did an amazing job for the fact that it is the smallest leaf blower Stihl makes. However it does get a little when you use it for long periods of time. I will be getting a BR 600 in the fall. Stihl is the best by far

    Excellent Well Priced Blower
    Just bought this blower for home use. Was originally worried that it may be too small for our yard, but it's been fantastic! The fuel tank is huge, so you can operate the unit for an extended period of time without having to stop and add more fuel. In addition, it's nice and small and light weight. My wife loves using it and will go outside for hours playing around the house. Overall, cost, power, and Stihl quality make this a GREAT buy! Highly recommend....
