Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 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. September 12, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Brand New - Died I bought the BGE 71 in April 2016 and have only used it about 45 minutes this summer and and today it just stopped working. Up until then I was very pleased with its performance and quality but what good is that when it quits with so very little use?How sad... July 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's a good electric blower. Don't consider the vacuum attachment if offered. It's worthless. At one point in time Stiehl sold this unit as a combination blower/vacuum. The vacuum feature was worthless. The blower unit is excellent. February 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent quality Purchased this on the recommendation of my son in law, it has proved to be everything he said it would be PLUS more. It gets the job done quickly and its light weight and powerful. Professional quality at a homeowners price June 17, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Powerful,well made, and lite. I bought this blower mainly to clean up pine needles on my driveway and walkways. It does a great job. I have extended it,s use to blowing out the garage, and blowing out spider webs on the outside of the house. Always thinking now on what I can use it for next. Great tool! April 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceeded my expectations This was my first Stihl leaf blower and it's more powerful and quieter that my previous blower. Also like the two speed capability - even on low speed, it's stronger than my previous unit. The gutter attachment is also well designed and easy to work with. November 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Long life LIKE ALL STIHL PRODUCTS THEY SEEM TO LAST FOREVER. THE STIHL ELECTRIC BLOWER I HAVE IS TWELVE YEARS OLD AND I USE IT ALL THE TIME. IT PERFORMS JUST LIKE THE DAY I PURCHASED IT NEW. WHEN AND IF IT EVER GOES BAD I WILL PURCHASE ANOTHER STIHL BLOWER November 8, 2014
