Rated 1 out of 5 by from Birthday Gift Gone Bad I was excited to receive the Stihl blower for my 60th birthday. I am an addict when it comes to leaf blowing. I believe this model is the antidote for my excessive compulsive behavior as it relates to Leaf blowing. I experienced at the most 20 minutes of usage and then to have to wait for the red light warning not to charge is a bummer. This product did not come close to meeting by expectations. Very disappointed and when originally was so excited about the 60th birthday present.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for small jobs This unit does exactly what Stihl and the dealer said. Runs about 30 minutes and perfect for small jobs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for what it was designed for Blower does a great job for what it was designed for yes it's a light-duty blower it does well enough for 800 square feet or so. If you need to do something that takes more than 20 minutes worth of blowing then you should probably get a heavy duty blower. It works great and is very lightweight I actually bought this for my elderly grandfather and my mother and it weighs maybe three and a half or four pounds and it is perfect for what we need it for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It only runs for 10 minutes Hours to charge and it runs for 10 minutes. A waste of time and money. I bought a broom and a rake instead. The chart in the Ace Hardware store tells you how many square feet it can cover....I have no concept of what that means. When I asked the ACE representative a more reasonable measure...As in, how long does it last? He responded about 30 minutes. 10 minutes at best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great when used for its capabilities The blower is intended for small yards and quick convenient jobs. The battery does only last about 30-35 mins but that is more than sufficient for a small yard. Read the recommended run times that Stihl advertises as they are accurate. My yard is 5000 sq ft. and I mow, trim, and than use the blower for 15-20 mins and than plug it in for next week. I like the blower because it is compact and lightweight and there is no messing with mixing gas and engine maintenance. If you have anything larger or needing more run time than what was described than you should probably look for a larger more powerful blower.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money With the BGA 45 fully charged, I climb the roof to blow off minor cedar litter. 8.5 minutes later I descend with a dead blower. I could not finish the job! Outside temperature: 8 degrees Celsius and sunny. Inside I attempt to recharge: three red lights indicates I must wait for the battery to cool! I can't believe we have wasted our money on a Stihl. This is what you get when you purchase a product touted as the best in its class. Garbage! Not to mention the blower strength is inadequate for a simple job.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good power - very short battery life I agree with the other reviewer. I just purchased my BGA 45 today, fully charged it and put it to use cleaning my roof and gutters. At first I was very pleased; it's lightweight and powerful but after a very short time, about 25 minutes max of intermittent use, the battery life was spent. Very disappointing.
