Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from didn't pick up I purchased this product and returned it the following day. My main reason is that it just didn;t do the job. I couldn't get the leaves out of my flower bed or base of my bushes. In my opinion the suction tube is too wide and can't penetrate .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fourth Stihl blower. I like this one best. I know the big gas powered blowers are awesome, and I have purchased two of those for my business. But for quick home use, this electric one tops all. It feels lightweight to me and does not cause fatigue even after I've run it for a half hour. For anything longer, I'd go with the backpack blower. However, for the price, this was a great deal at half the price of the similar sized gas handheld blower from Stihl (which I also own, but no longer find as much use for.) There is no mixing fuel and oil; I just quickly plug it in and use it. It puts out a lot, and I mean a LOT of air force, so blowing a wet driveway with pine needles in Oregon still works with this blower as it would with the big ones. It's quieter and is great for home use where I try to preserve the pricey gas I have for lawnmowers and pressure washers. Maintenance is non-existent at this point, though after a year, I will likely have it checked out at my local Stihl dealer. The dealer did tell me that these were relatively maintenance free, so another plus there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product worked perfectly. This product was so easy to charge and to start using. I was able to move all the leaves collecting in the low area near the basement entrance. It had plenty of power to blow the leaves away from the concrete floor out into the yard and down to the pasture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Product works great! This Product works great for the Value and it's intended uses, I bought it to blow the pine needles off our Patio and walk way once a week and was looking at something that was easy to get out and use with out gassing it up all the time,was worried about the electric one not having much blowing force but to my surprise it did a great job!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Takes quiet a while to get replacement parts Good vacuum, blower, gutter clean-out combination tool, it is powerful enoughRigged as a vacuum to pick up rocks or chunks of pine bark mulch, that canDamage the fan blade, which shuts down all functions.This item should be stocked regionally for quicker replacement, since it is madeOf plastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stihl product are awesome! I recently bought a stihl blower and love it. It works excellent on yard waste and fluffy snow. I bought a stihl because I bought stihl chainsaw and weed trimmer earlier this year because of availability and service. I will buy stihl in the furture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight, Easy to handle, Two speeds I bought the electric blower because I didn' t want to mess with the gasoline/oil mixture. This blower is light weight, easy to handle, and the two speeds are really nice. I use the low speed to get leaves out of my garden without blowing away the decorative rock and for blowing out the garage. This blower makes my yard clean up less time consuming and it even blows pine needles without blinking an eye. I get about 25 huge bags of leaves every year and this blower helped me get the leaves under control. Now if it could put the leaves in the bags, that would be awesome!. It is also quieter than other blowers I have used. I will definately buy another Stihl product again. It was so fun to use that I wanted to keep blowing and clean out my neighbors yard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super functioning product with great quality. I purchased the Stihl BGE71 blower in June 2013. I've used it quite a few times and it meets all of my high expectations. I went w/ this model due to the two speed switch, the lower speed does come in handy when in tight spaces, in my garage, etc. This item is lightweight and of high quality.I have no problems with the cord. I would have went with the battery powered unit except it was a very high price and fairly low runtime.The electric product is great. No gas/oil/carb to mess with. Plug it in and its ready to go. My 50' cord does fine with most of my jobs. I add a second 50' cord when I need to get out just a bit further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
