Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy for my wife to use. I have all gas Stihl equipment, my wife cannot start the blower so I bought her the battery powered one. Very light & easy to operate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a lot of stamina I have been a long time user of Stihl products, blowers, trimmers, hedge trimmers and such. Please be aware of what your purpose is for buying this unit. It's NOT designed and built for heavy use such as a large gas blower is. It has sufficient power to blow off sidewalks, patios, and decks. I bought this to take with me camping so I could keep the leaves and gravel off my rug in front of my camper door. Works Great!!!! It is very light and easy to use. My only complaint is that the battery is a bit weak in that it will only get about 10 minutes or less of constant use. It charges quickly so your not down a lot of time before it can be up and going.It's a great little blower but a bit pricey but what isn't anymore?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use for an older woman This is exactly what I was looking for. I am 69 years old and have back and arm issues. I am able to use this blower to easily clear my porch of leaves. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really convenient and well-designed This is such a vast improvement over electrical blowers requiring cords. Just insert the battery and you're ready. No more dragging cords, etc. The trade-off is the duration of the charge, which is about 20 minutes of run time. The power is plenty for blowing lots of leaves off of a long uphill driveway and a large wraparound deck in less than the 20 minutes charge. Overall, I'm delighted with this new Stihl product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great rechargeable blower. We had a gas unit before and I got tired of trying to start it. This one has so much power, runs a long time and recharges fast. so lightweight. I use it to blow out debris in the garage, keep yard tip top and blow the patio debris awasy from the pool. It is so easy to use and for the mid choice, great value. very quiet yet lots of power. I recommended it to friends, neighbors and family. It works well even on wet leaves and to blow out the back of our truck after taking yard waste to the dump. great to blow debris off slides on our fifth wheel and a quick clearing of campsites. Just can't say enough. Even used it to dry off items we washed to put in storage or blow off water off patio chairs and tables. super buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great powerful blower I've been talking about buying this blower for awhile now, & FINALLY decided to buy one. LOTS of power! We have big maple trees that have dropped a lot of leafs. In years past, it was hard to blow those big leafs into a pile. With my BGA 56 blower, it was so much easier to do. Love this unit. Loved it so much that I also purchased a FSA 56 trimmer! Love that product also!I would buy Stihl products again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BGA-56 is perfect for deck, walks and driveway. My BGA-56 is a winner! Perfect for blowing leaves from deck and driveway and, in a pinch, it's not bad on the lawn too. It is easy to use. Even my wife loves it and uses it - - the best compliment I can think of.
