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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutelyl love it It is nice to be able to grab quickly and use it to clean off the back porch and driveway. Best part is you don't smell like gas or exhaust after using it. I have had a BG 55 and It seems pretty similar power. Battery life could be longer but it has always done what I needed it to do. January 15, 2015
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.
