    Great product
    Just purchased this battery Stihl blower from JEFF of San Carlos Stihl dealership . Product is outstanding. After charging battery up to full capacity blew leaves out of garage and cleaned pool area in no time. Blower is very light and no effort to start like many of gas models are. Cleaned up my house outside area in no time and no gas to mix or pull starters. This blower has really made a believer of me. Great product Stihl, u really hit a home run on this one!

    Excellent blower
    Got tired of gas blower not starting at the beginning of season due to gummed up gas lines. I have a fairly large lot with a pool, long driveway and sidewalk. I can blow off everything without needing a recharge.

    Unbelievable Power!
    I use this blower a least a couple of hours per week and have done so for the last year. It starts on the first pull and is actually very light and easy to use. The gas tank lasts for easily over an hour-and-a-half at a time before I have to refill. The power is unbelievable; I'm a big guy and I have to lean into it when I put it to full power--it works fantastically. It used to take me several hours to clear my property of leaves and now that work has been shortened to 20 minutes. It will blow ... read more heavy wet leaves and even wet sand and gravel. If you need power, this is the blower I recommend!

    No need to look for another leaf blower!
    No need to look any further! This backpack blower has all you need. I am super impressed with it. It will move sticks, wet leaves and anything in its way. If you are looking for a blower there is no need to compare, just buy it. You will not be let down.

    It is easy to get in to tight spots and on roofs
    I do you like it better than the 600 it is speeding me up at least 10 to 20 minutes per yard It is easier to get up on a ladder because the hose comes in so short The extra weight doesn't seem to be a factor It is lasting 1 to 11/2 hrs. Between we fueling also good to get in to tight spots around the house and air-conditioning units

    This product is perfect for us
    We needed a new blower after our 16 year-old, two-cycle gas blower bit the dust. I was intrigued by converting to electric so we wouldn't have to deal with mixing gas and oil as well as the noise and exhaust from a gas engine. On paper, the BGE 71 seemed to fit the bill. After seeing and using one at a local dealer, I was sold. I couldn't believe its power! Plus, it's lighter, quieter, and easier to handle than the gas-powered type. (Our lot is 90 by 130 feet, with about three or four large ... read more trees in the backyard.) The cord isn't an issue for us plus we benefit from not having to deal with another set of batteries and a charger! I see the BGE 71 meeting our needs exactly for some time to come.

    Extremely easy assembly; two pieces make the nozzle & it's done!
    I bought this for my mother. She LOVES it!! It is very easy to carry, very quiet, but most importantly, very, very powerful! It truly gets the job done. I tried it also & found it easy to manipulate around the yard. It doesn't get hot around the handle. I have several other Stihl products & am glad I purchased this blower for her.

    Light & easy to start
    This leaf blower is easy to start, easy to use & light weight. It is powerful enough to blow sweet gum balls. I highly recommend Stihl products to others.

    Great homeowner blower
    I came into this skeptical after having past Stihl blowers give me issues starting. This blower has had zero issues, especially with starting. I love the Easy2Start feature, the power is great, it's fuel efficient, and quiet. I love Stihl products and will keep buying them.

    Nice blower for smaller properties
    Lightweight and easy to use, this blower is fine for smaller jobs. It's a little weak for getting the pine straw out of the grass. I'd go to the next level for more power if I could do it again.

    Another great stihl product
    Purchased a br430 from Bairs in North Canton Ohio was unsure of what unit to buy and was upgrading from a old 55 hand blower the salesman who seemed to also be a stihl maintenance tech was super helpful and knowledgeable. I have had the chance to use the blower about 12 times and it works awesome has great power and really lifts everything up and off your lawn or concrete! Hope it last as long as my stihl saws, weed eater and my old blower.... Thanks Doug A

    As said by others this is a great blower made for work but it really needs a chest strap. the shoulder straps keep falling off. right now I have a bungee across the two straps.

    Everything it should be
    I've never had a really good leaf blower before, because I haven't really needed a big one. The power and efficiency of a backpack blower compared to a handheld is amazing. I've only had this one a few weeks, but I really like it. It is a little clumsy, when you're in a tight space, but that is a small price to pay for capability.

    Fall Clean Up Has Never Been Easier!
    I purchased my BG50 from my local dealer about a month ago. I use to dread doing fall clean up, and now thanks to my BG50 it is no longer something I dread doing. The blower is great for everything, leaf clean up, blowing your gutters clean, blowing the driveway and side walks. I can't wait to even blow some light snow with it. Thanks Stihl!!!

    Nice blower! Plenty of power. Starts right up and is very light. I like the variable speed trigger too. Not sure why all the poor reviews for starting. I guess there are a lot of folks who don't know how to use the choke. Follow the instructions and you won't have any issues. It starts up just like my old WeedEater blower I had for 10 years.

    Very big bang for the buck!
    If you need an excellent gasoline blower for general household use,then this is it. The BG50 has plenty of power for blowing leaves, blowing down the driveway, and even clearing the gutters. It usually cranks on 3 to 5 pulls and never quits. It idles flawlessly and operates quietly. I have a good electric blower, but the whole extension cord thing is such a hassle. Don't waste your time and money with the cheap stuff from the home centers. We also have 2 Stihl chainsaws, and a string trimmer. ... read more All of these are the same quality. Stihl products are simply the best!
