Rated 5 out of 5 by Fully meets all my expectations Bought it to blow leaves off the roof and clear the gutters. Does all that and more. Even used it this morning to blow the snow off the driveway and Suburban in 10 degree temperature. Using the 160 battery it lasted a full 30 minutes even at that temperature! May have to buy a second 160 battery to increase use life (driveway 150' long) but overall with the sole exception of the high price I love the machine. It is light enough that my wife will use it while she would never use a gas blower of which I have several. January 22, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quality Product Product has more power than I expected and battery lasts longer than I expected. It does require about 30-40 minutes to recharge, however. Quality of the blower is exceptional. Overall, I am very pleased with the product and its convenience for blowing leaves and pinestraw off my driveway, portches and patio. January 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Blower It was important for me to a blower that was light weight, easy to start and with enough power to do the job with lots of wet leaves. This Blower more than fit the bill!! December 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice Blower I bought in to the Stihl system for the trimmer, but I love the blower as well. It has nice power and is easy to handle. Sometimes I wish there was a slightly smaller nozzle to generate more speed (even at less volume) for some jobs, but it has plenty power for most jobs. The fact that I would like to be able to use it for some places where I would use my compressor tells you that it has a lot of power. Every other cordless blower I ever owned was good for little more than leaves. August 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 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 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 FloridaEasy 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. August 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what we needed With this product there are no more cords to get out and I don't have to mix fuel or worry about getting the blower started after infrequent use. My wife loves it! July 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 clearing our long driveway and patio. Couldn't be happier with product. Chainsaw also great but not needed as much. July 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great cordless blower!! A little pricey, but typical Stihl quality. Very impressive, even with the smaller battery. I plan on purchasing the AP 160 for longer run time. You won't be diappointed. No gas, no muss, no fuss. February 6, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Too pricey $289 for the blower and then you have to buy the battery and charger for about another $200. Are you kidding me? I like the idea of a cord free electric blower but the price is just too prohibitive. I can buy just about any of the big gas backpack blowers for that money. Come on Stihl gives us a complete tool for a reasonable price. You make great tools - I own Stihl chainsaws, trimmers, and backpack and handheld gas blowers and love them all. December 17, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Blower We have purchased three blowers for our University and they are outstanding. Quiet, powerful and low maintenance. If you get two of the bigger batteries and the quick charger, a battery will charge and be complete while you use the other battery for almost continuous operation. December 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. November 3, 2012
