Rated 3 out of 5 by Battery life is very short If you have even a medium size lawn do not try to blow the leaves using this product. The battery life is less than half an hour. So far I have gone out twice and only gotten about a 10'x20' area cleared. At this rate it will be spring before I get done.Also, it would be nice to have a piece that can be added to the front to direct the wind instead of just the wide mouth that is now the only option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Power from a Battery Powered Blower The Stihl Battery Powered Blower works just as advertised. It has good air volume and velocity. I haven't tested the battery for advertised duration of use, and based on my limited experience, I am not sure that it will last as long as advertised. July 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorite lawn/garden tool We live on 5 acres with lots of trees. I had purchased a corded vac/blower several years ago and it just wasn't suiting my needs to keep up with all the leaf blowing and clean up each fall and spring. I told my husband I wanted this for Christmas and I have not been disappointed in the blower's performance. It has lots of power to move big piles of leaves as well as small twigs and other debris. I usually get tired and ready to take a break before the battery gives out. This past weekend I trimmed up evergreen bushes and used the Stihl blower to clear the trimmings out from behind the bushes and this was so much easier than using a rake. I love my Stihl products. I also have the chain saw and I get carried away sometimes cutting off tree branches, vines and woody growth around our home. It's just fun and satisfying to use because of it's ease and great performance. June 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My BFF I am not an avid gardener and always looking for the easy way out. I LOVE this and use it for lots of things besides leaf blowers. I use it to dry the porch after I hosed it off, blow it the dogs when they want to bother me, leaves, just a ton of things besides just the leaves and snow. I hate it when my husband uses it, I is mine! June 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Real power from a cordless I was very skeptical when I bought my first cordless piece of lawn equipment. It was the Stihl cordless chainsaw, and from the first limb I cut I was impressed. This tool is no different. The convenience of no cord, no fuel, no pull start cannot be stressed enough. I still have the gas version of both and use them when I know I will be at it for an extended period of time, but for a quick cleanup or quick trim this Stihl equipment cannot be beat if for no other reason than time saved, but there is no loss of quality on a job well done.

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
