    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

    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.

    Very high quality
    I have had this blower over 3years. The only thing I have had to do to it is add fuel. It starts easily every time. ( if you flood it you don't know what you are doing.) it still has the original spark plug. I will only buy Stihl.

    Extremely easy assembly; two pieces make the nozzle & it's done!
    I bought this for my mother. She LOVES it!! It is very easy to carry, very quiet, but most importantly, very, very powerful! It truly gets the job done. I tried it also & found it easy to manipulate around the yard. It doesn't get hot around the handle. I have several other Stihl products & am glad I purchased this blower for her.

    Powerful,well made, and lite.
    I bought this blower mainly to clean up pine needles on my driveway and walkways. It does a great job. I have extended it,s use to blowing out the garage, and blowing out spider webs on the outside of the house. Always thinking now on what I can use it for next. Great tool!

    Great Blower
    This blower has great power to blow away almost anything on your lawn. It has the power that you have to pay a lot more at other manufacturers. The blower is comfortable to wear with it's great padding for your back. lastly the blower has great features that no other manufacture has, for example the choke sets to run when you throttle up the blower and the multi-function switch that lets you set a blowing speed and turn off the blower on one switch. I highly recommend the BR 350 backpack leaf blower.

    Won't be fooled again by mediocrity
    The reliability and durability of a used Stihl chainsaw led me to consider one of their blowers after several disappointments with lesser brands. The BR350 has ample power for our 25 acre campus, and the input I received from pros in the field satisfied me that I made the best choice for the school for the long haul. Although somewhat heavier than I expected, once it's strapped on and adjusted properly, it becomes an extension of my body and responds intuitively to changing conditions.

    Stihl very good products
    I love this leaf blower. We have a lot of leaves to take care of, I used to rake them all. Now I just blow them into the woods, and this little machine does the trick very nicely. It starts very easily and keeps on running. I would say on an average I used this machine at least four hours a day for a couple weeks. Its light enough but has real power. I would deffinetly buy other Stihl products. The value for your money is excellent.

    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.

    More power than I expected
    I recently purchased the BGA85 to use at home because I would not have to worry about storing gas. I was totally surprised when I first used it because it was a lot more powerful than I expected. It does a wonderful job for me and I would recommed it to anyone without hesitation.

    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.

    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.

    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.
