Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Snowblower I specifically bought this 'blower (in a package that included a battery and charger) to remove powdery snow, which is commonplace here in wintertime western South Dakota. When snowfall deposition is an inch to two inches, and powdery, this machine completely removes snow very well. My (gas-powered) Stihl BR550 is not recommended for use in the low temperatures we see hereabouts in wintertime, so the BGA56 does the job. It clears my deck and sidewalks quickly and still has sufficient battery reserve to clear other major portions of my wide driveway. Both my wife and I use it with no difficulties whatsoever; it is lightweight and easily handled. I doubt if the BGA56 would effectively move deep, heavy, wet snow (like we generally see in springtime), but for that I have a snowblower and tractor with hydraulically-powered blade. The BGA56 battery charges fully in a short time, and as I mentioned, it lasts for a long time once fully charged. I am a longtime Stihl customer (chainsaw, weedwhacker, and backpack 'blower) and this battery-powered handheld 'blower's performance reinforces my conviction that this company continues to manufacture outstanding products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lawn Blower This was purchased because my gas powered one was always way too hard for me to start and then it finally died. At that point I hired someone to do my lawn. However, I wanted a blower to blow out the garage or my back sidewalk. I love this one. I am a woman and loved to work in my yard but to crank the gas ones were too much. When I saw this one at Ace Hardware I was sold. It is light weight and works great. And you only have to charge the battery and go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Good So far I have only used it to blow snow off the ramp, and out of the farm equipment. Works Great so far. Cleans off the vehicles quickly and efficiently. The unit weights under 5 pounds, so it is easy to use in one hand or two for over the head blowing out of equipment. It can be held at any angle required, which is great for older people with arthritis.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice blower First, I'm a retired blue collar guy; I don't have money to waste. But I like buying good equipment, and it's nice when they don't have "made in China" on them. I already own 4 Stihl products, one being cordless, so admittedly I have a bias towards Stihl. I wanted a cordless blower for small jobs like blowing out the garage, porches, etc., and there is no shortage of cordless blowers with similar or more impressive specs than the Stihl, on paper anyway. Nevertheless, I decided to take a chance on the BGA56, partly because the battery would be compatible with my hedge trimmer, and partly because I'm familiar with the quality of Stihl products. I'm glad I did. This blower performed better than I thought it would. It is very quiet, and I think since most folks equate noise with power, some may think this blower is not moving as much air as it actually does. I won't use this for fall clean-up; that's what my BG56 C-E is for. But for small area clean-ups, this will be ideal.
