    Great for ladies too!
    After my divorce my nephew lent me his old Stihl blower and bagger from his landscaping business. This was the blower that was not secured and fell off the truck and hit the pavement, but it still worked like a dream. I appreciated it because it had the bagger feature and was easy to start. Long story short. He moved the blower and bagger went with him and I went out the next weekend and purchased the same model with the bagging feature. Thank you for building such a dependable, easy to start ... read more durable piece of yard equipement.

    The best big handheld blower on the market
    I was seeking another stihl blower to replace my retired stihl sh85. I bought this one. The 4 point spring anti vibes make this blower very comfy to use this machine has plenty of power for big and small jobs this blower is very easy to start and use (mine starts in 4 pulls- I use 50:1 canned fuel ethnol free). I highly recommend this blower.

    My search for a gas blower.
    Stihl makes professional-grade gas leaf blowers It sells exclusively through outdoor power equipment dealers Like Top Gunn Equipment in Austin Tx. . Stihl has a very high quality design very easy to start maintain and use. I previously used an electric blower to clean around the the pool deck and after falling in to the pool, hook power cord and blower it was decided I would find a Gas replacement blower and after extensive research I chose the BG 86 CE blower it is very light weight easy to ... read more maneuver, I use the blower around the yard and to blow the water off my Harley Davidson after washing it so I wanted something that would last and be durable and function-able at the same time. I was very happy with the pre-sale knowledge of the staff at Top Gunn Equipment Rentals in Austin, Tx. They also performed a pre-check of the blower before it left there store. the Stihl line of gas handheld and backpack blowers features high power and high amount of air I chose the handheld for its light weight and power. Consider this brand before shopping the other brands at the big box stores. I am very satisfied with my Blower.

    Side start needs more engineering
    The br800 is an amazing product but the side start feature needs some more engineering as my team and I broke it 3 times. The blower only had run max 15 tanks of fuel. My dealer replaced it with an X model and absolutely love it.

    Powerful and Comfortable!
    I searched high and low and carefully researched for a powerful blower to replace my old handheld gas 500cfm blower and based on previous I selected the BR 800 C-E Magnum. The side start handle is a game changer and super easy to use. The idle is a nice low speed for sensitive areas and full throttle is like a jet engine. It cleared debris, leaves and sticks like it was nothing. What used to take me 1hr took me only 15 mins with this new blower. Great job Stihl for developing a product with such ... read more limited vibration. The shoulder harness with lower and upper cross straps really makes it comfortable. It’s still pretty new but so far so good. Can’t wait for more leaves to fall so I can do it again!

    Great product
    I doubt you will find many people that regret spending the extra money for this beast. I’m a 27 year old male in good physical shape and I initially used this blower for about 1.5 hours without adjusting or clipping thrstraps. I started to feel it toward the end of the use. The next time I used it I took advantage of setting the straps up correctly, and it made a huge difference. You carry the weight of the blower on your hips saving your back. I blew leaves for 3 hours straight and no issues. ... read more The side pull is super nice as well.

    Very Powerful
    After working with the full line of gas powered products on our 16 acres we have downsized to 1/2 acres in a quiet gated community. I decided to give the BGA 100 a try based on the convenience of battery power. What an amazingly quiet powerful blower. With two batteries and the 500 series charger, one is never without a fully charged battery in reserve. Highly recommend this blower for homeowner use.

    Good tool
    I am looking forward to using this for a full season, and might update this review. The blower is light weight and has good power. I already had the battery chain saw which I love so I figure I'd continue with Stihl products so I can share batteries and charger. The BGA blower is over priced, and requires the user buy a battery box with power cord that is almost a third of the price of the blower. These are accessories that should come with the blower. The only reason I didn't recommend this ... read more tool is that it isn't worth the total cost.

    Fabulous and Powerful Yard Blower
    I didn't know how this would compare to the powerful gas blowers, but I got tired of the noise and the gas and the pull to start. In my opinion, this blower is more powerful than the gas line blowers! Including the gas backpack. Now the Gas backpack blowers are for pro's who don't have to worry about battery life and usually go for longer period of times than you would with the battery blowers. This BGA100 is designed for the semi pro or home owner. I haven't tested for battery life ... read more because you'd have to run a full power test along with and multi range power test, which I haven't done as I'm more interested in just using the blower. My guess is that on full power, you'd have maybe 10-15 minutes. That's with the big battery, which I bought. But here's the thing, you'd never need full power when you use this guy anyway. during normal usage, I'd guess you'd have about 30mins useage, but that's a guess. Of course with the big capacity battery. One thing though, I might have purchased the BGA85 simply due to the fact that you don't have to wear the battery belt & cord which is not as convenient. But the BGA100 has the power I want and need and I didn't know about the BGA85. And when you need the power, you need it! The Blower itself is light. It's a big thing though! Looks really intimidating when you actually see it in person!!

    Excellent product
    I'm sold on Stihl products. I already owned a gas-powered Stihl blower. I loved it, but it was fairly noisy for an urban neighborhood. It was a no-brainer for me to replace it with a Stihl battery-powered blower. The new blower has plenty of power and long battery life. I also like that its battery is compatible with other Stihl products.

    Excellent tool for medium duty.
    I’m a residential user with one acre of land and many mature hardwood trees. I use three blowers, a Stihl BG50 handheld for clearing around the house and shrubs, a six horsepower rotary blower for moving the heaviest fall leaves and the Stihl BGA56 battery powered blower for lighter duty clearing on my deck, carport, driveway and sidewalk. This is the blower that I most often use year round. It is extremely convenient, lightweight, quiet and easy to use. It is not not the equivalent of a gas ... read more powered blower for moving large quantities of wet leaves in grassy areas but is so convenient for lighter duty use. It’s a great product and my local ACE HARDWARE is great to work with.

    Great product for retired people
    I first got the weed eater with a smaller battery, went to buy a bigger battery and decided I could use a blower too. It’s nice to have interchangeable batteries. I usually have both batteries on chargers in the detached garage, so they are always ready to go. Easy to use for 58 and 81 year old women on 3 acres of land. No problems with the blower which is often used to blow grass clippings off the road. The weed eater was worked on right at Rural King, fixed once, then replaced free of charge, ... read more well nobody can beat that! I’m a Stihl fan!

    Electric Blower review
    My first blower was a 2 cycle Stihl blower and is still working with my Brother in Portland, OR, its over 10 - 12 years old...works great. This electric blower is OK, but not as good as my old small gas blower

    Super functioning product with great quality.
    I purchased the Stihl BGE71 blower in June 2013. I've used it quite a few times and it meets all of my high expectations. I went w/ this model due to the two speed switch, the lower speed does come in handy when in tight spaces, in my garage, etc. This item is lightweight and of high quality. I have no problems with the cord. I would have went with the battery powered unit except it was a very high price and fairly low runtime. The electric product is great. No gas/oil/carb to mess with. Plug ... read more it in and its ready to go. My 50' cord does fine with most of my jobs. I add a second 50' cord when I need to get out just a bit further.

    A strong blower with a two speed switch
    Years ago I purchased a BE55 Stihl leaf blower and now with a second house I wanted to get another one to keep at this house. The BE55 is discontinued so to get the two speed switch I had to purchase the BGE71. The power is the same so far as I can tell, but the top only mounted handle on the BGE71 is a poor substitute for the top and rear handle design on the BE55. There is a front mounted knob on the BGE71 but with the thrust of the blower the BGE71 fatigues your wrist much faster. Also I like ... read more the curved discharge outlet more than the straight one that comes standard on the BGE71. I will be buying that as an attachment for my new blower. These things do work great for blowing out the eves on the roof. I did buy the vacuum attachment for the BE55 and it works well to get leaves out of the bushes, but I wouldn't use it at ground level because a stick or stone could damage the plastic impeller blades. It is probably more trouble than its worth to install verses just using it as a blower.

    Everything I need and more
    Decided on this blower after using one to clean up after a recent storm. Without a doubt, no question, the best blower on the market. Don't waste your time with the other brands, spend the extra money and go with what you can count on. Work smarter not harder, this blower cleared almost an acre of debris in about 35 minutes. Sticks, limbs, pine cones, leaves, gone. I now look for excuses to use this. I have already loaned it out twice. Starts with ease, not too heavy for me and I'm a female, but ... read more this is without question the best money spent to make my yard work easier. Love it.

    This Is The Best Blower I’ve Ever Used.
    I own a Stihl BR350 as well as a BR600 backpack blower so I know what good equipment is. My new Stihl BR 800 X is so much more powerful than my other blowers and surprisingly more comfortable. I’ve yet to run into a job that was too tough for my BR 800 X....a winters worth of wet leaves was absolutely no problem. If you’re in the market for a backpack blower... test the best one....the Stihl BR 800 X you won’t be disappointed.

    This blower is awesome
    The Magnum 800 blower is incredible. It blows leaves, rocks & sticks! I finished blowing my leaves in 1/4 of the time it normally takes. It was very easy to start-just took a little getting used to because you don’t just pull the cord. It is very nice to be able to start from the backpack location. The weight is 26lbs but with the waist belt, I barely knew it was on. The only downside to this blower is the fact that it goes through gas a lot faster; but it’s blowing faster and harder. I now love ... read more blowing my leaves!
