Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and portable but battery runs out too quickly I bought this a little over two months ago and it worked great. I use it at home to blow the front and back yard; the battery has never lasted long enough to complete the entire job but I could plan on getting half of the job done before I needed to charge. Lately, the last two weeks, the battery has been running out faster than usual. I used to count on finishing either the front or back yard and having a little batter life left; lately the battery isn't lasting as long and leaves the job 90% complete. I visited the Stihl dealership I bought the product from and learned their idea of warranty included me being without a blower until they make a decision and come to a resolution. If I had bought this at Home Depot I would have just returned the product...buyer beware. I've bought two products from Stihl, both on the same day, and feel like a fool for doing so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The BGA 56 is powerful enough to do the job The BGA 56 is powerful enough to do the job. Not too heavy and easy to use. Be sure to buy an extra battery. One battery lasts 30 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best blower ever Bought this to clean up the multiple patios around the house and we've found this blower to be perfect for the job. It has a very strong air flow that gets all the dirt and leaves out of the crevices while being light and easy to use. The only downside is if your garden is large, the battery might not last long enough and you might want to upgrade to a larger battery. So far, we are loving the BGA 56

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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, well nobody can beat that! I’m a Stihl fan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy Just bought this and worked better than expected I knew going in that it wasn’t going to be as powerful as a gas powered but it is lightweight and moves grass trimmings and gravel and leaves just fine takes just a little bit more time way more convenient to use

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Smaller jobs This works great around the house. It is lightweight and has enough power to do driveways and decks. I did keep my gas blower for bigger jobs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s a residential model for the average home owner! Will do what it’s intended to do.. My purchased focused on the fact I have a battery chainsaw. Uses the same battery plus I bought a extra battery for the chainsaw at the same I purchased saw. So I have lots of batteries to use both and two chargers. The blower clears all my grass clippings after the mower covers driveway and walk ways. I have trees that hang over my decks that are messy!! So this blower beats sweeping as it gets pieces out that has been trapped into the cracks in the deck boards! I use to clean my garage floor! Better then a broom... so yeah it’s a handy little tool! PS.. I will use to clean the snow off my car in the morning when the time comes!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery powered bummer I bought this blower and the hedge trimmers on a Tuesday. Took them home and charged the batteries before using them. Called and told my dad I made this purchase and he was disappointed in me for buying a battery powered set of Stihl power tools. I have the two in gas operated as well, but I wanted something a little quieter for my restaurant being around customers. I used the blower for 12 minutes on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning for around the same time. I went to pick up the blower for a small project out front on the sidewalk and the battery was dead! Yikes! Stay away from the battery powered option. I made a mistake. I’ll stick with my gas powered options. Taking these two battery powered Stihls back. Terrible decision. The place where I bought them is awesome. They sell everything else I need and the staff goes above and beyond to help their customers. I’m always impressed with the way this store operates. Great bunch of folks. If I ever need anything this is the place I go for all my hardware and lawn-care needs. I’ll definitely continue shopping here and always will. I made the decision to buy these tools and it’s not their fault that I’m not happy with my purchase. I’ve always been satisfied with all my purchases made at this location.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from short battery life works great but the battery only lasts about 5 minutes

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use and light enough to handle This battery operated blower makes it so much easier for me to grab and just do little or big jobs for clean up. It's small enough to handle easily and powerful enough to do the types of things that I need to use it for, for example blowing off the patio or blowing the driveway after I mow. I am a not so young woman and this has made it much easier for me to operate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well Great blower that is extremely easy and convenient to use.It does a great job for the homeowner that does not need a larger blower for bigger jobs. I get 20-25 minutes of run time.It is also great in the garage or workshop without the fumes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use this is the blower my wife can handle Light and easy to use my wife loves this Stihl product much better than the gas blower she had before. Use it all around the house outside does a great job of removing clutter. Good battery life between recharges.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for what i use it for I blow my side walks and porch clean with this blower, that's what I bought it for, if you want to blow a big pile of leaves in your yard, I would choose a different product, like a gas blower. It is light, powerful for a battery ran blower, and works well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bag 56 combo Good for blowing off a deck, bought as part of combo trimmer works well blower however needs more power. Disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliable, runs well with hign CFM to blow a pile of leaves or clean the driveway. My biggest concern is the length of time out of the two batteries. My experience using two batteries, the AK20 and AK30, is that the run time is less than the 20 or 30 minutes as specified the Stihl specifications. The performance and handling are great to move heavy leaves or clean the drive. Thus, I give the BGA 56 a 4 star rating. Have owned the product 4 months but use the blower weekly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best battery leaf blower I have ever seen. My wife gave me the Stihl battery blower last year for my birthday. I had a corded electric blower before, so glad I upgraded. I can blow my driveway, walkway, entry way with plenty of extra power to completely clear debris off my street for neighbors on both sides. It’s nice enough to help neighbors but the dang leaves don’t blow back to my house.That is the best part

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and Easy to Use I am very happy with my new battery powered BGA 56 blower. It has plenty of power to blow off the decks, side walks and to blow out the garage crud quickly. The battery seems to last longer than I expected, though I haven't run it out yet, so I can only say that it runs at least 15 minutes without running out of power. It is so easy to handle and much lighter weight than I expected. I'm a 65 yr. old women with arthritic hands, back and shoulders and I have no pain when using it. It is also very clean, no fumes and no gas to buy, mix with oil and fill the tank. I would highly recommend this blower for routine yard maintenance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall satisfied with product The BGA 56 is lightweight, easy to use, quiet and charges quickly. The blower could use a little more blowing power and charge time on the battery but overall, I am satisfied with the product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Blows very well This product has great blowing ability, but I don't like how short the battery lasts when using it consistently. I could get a similar blower cheaper than this one.
