Rated 5 out of 5 by Great electric blower We had bought this as blower to use where I work and I can not be more happy. The quality is there for a long days work and there is no fuel smell or mixing oil and gas or the loud engine, and that is key for a happy customer. The price is a little steep for it though, I almost matched the price of the blower with the battery and charger. And if used with care (not full or nothing) I was able to around 45min out of the AP 180 and still get the job done well. Last but not least, the blower can not be flicked around in your hand as well as the gas ones can, maybe due to the twin axial fans. August 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by If at first you don't succeed~ Finally broke down and picked up a cordless blower. Brought it home, charged the batt. Used it for two minutes and the thing ceased up. Called the dealer-he said bring it in the tech will be there Tuesday. Had my new new blower on Weds. Wanted something I could use in the garage to make a mess when the vaccum was too small of an option. What I didn't expect was the variable speed trigger- allows very low speed blowing- nice feature when cutting in around landscaping and planters on patios. Can't do that with the backpack BR600 on idle. That said- the specs are true- the Battery charges in less than half an hour- and I get plenty of runtime out of it to clean up around the house after mowing- or just a wind storm. About half the snot of the big blower- but so much easier to get out and run for a few minutes. No gas to fill, no cord to pull. just press the trigger and you're in business. Still a little pricey, but we'll see how long it lasts, then review the lifetime costs- no mix to buy, no fuel, and b/c no ethanol involved- no carb replacements!! Save $85 right there! Easier to climb up on the roof with and works great for blowing off the mower and log splitter after a session. Great product overall~ August 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Has been a great asset to my new home. Great for cleaning indoors too, by removing any dirt or dust behind appliances and etc. This machine does not put off any fumes making it safe for indoors. July 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Grab & Go Type of Tool It is such a pleasure to use this blower - no pull start gas engine to irritate my arthriticshoulders. Alittle heavy with the AP 180 battery but no problem. Unit has plenty of power.My only wish is that STIHL comes out with a fan shaped nozzel for this blower. May 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by powerful, yet easy to literally give just a "puff" of air with the trigger. Very quiet Maybe could use a strap for longer work(for older home owner).Glad I've got it !!! May 6, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Expensive Novelty Yes, it's made well, but performance is lacking. Specifically, battery life for the AP180 is only 60% of that touted in specifications. Under what conditions can I expect the battery to last "up to 23 minutes"? Do I need to operate the machine at low power to achieve this performance? The best I got was 13:45 with a fully charged, new AP180 at maximum speed. Stihl's reputation is great which makes the BGA85 all the more a disappointing piece of kit purchased at a premium price. Stihl's reputation takes a hit on this one. January 21, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Short Battery life I love using the blower. It works well and is easy to use. Plenty powerful for what I need. My only complaint is I only get 15 minutes of run time and then have to recharge it. An extra battery is very expensive so for now I'm living with it. Hopefully they'll have an improved battery some day with a longer run time. January 15, 2015
