BGE 71
BGE 71 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and yet has the power to perform. Great combination! I have own the bge71 blower for several years. It is the most quiet blower out there. Don't have to worry about disturbing the neighbors in the middle of summer. Powerful enough to handle fall leave clean up. Does not take a lot space to store it when not in use. I use it after each lawn cutting of my yard for quick cleanup. Base on my own long time use of this blower i can easy recommend it. Test it out yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving it so far So far I have used this blower twice. It is much more hassle free than the gas blower it replaced. It has plenty of power for my needs, even on damp days

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Impeller broke on first use The Impeller broke on the first use of vacuum, had to purchase an impeller to make work again. The use was as directed and just sucking up leaves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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 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.
