BGA 100

BGA 100
When in boost mode, the BGA 100 is the most powerful dedicated handheld blower in the STIHL range.

Product Description

Note: Must be used with battery belt or AR-style backpack battery and required adapters purchased separately.

The Lithium-Ion battery-powered BGA 100 is built with the professional landscaper in mind. When in boost mode, the BGA 100 is the most powerful dedicated handheld blower in the STIHL range. This Lithium-Ion battery-powered blower boasts higher quality and better ergonomics than many other battery products on the market, and delivers performance superior to many gas powered models. The new BGA 100 design shifts the battery weight from the unit to the back or hip with a high-performance cable connecting system. This results in a lighter blower and reduces user fatigue. The BGA 100 features four performance levels through a variable speed throttle trigger delivering an even balance of blowing power and run time. Its rear-mounted air intake allows the blower to be used right- or left-handed. The quietest and lightest blower in the STIHL lineup, the BGA 100 allows you to clean up with ease around neighborhoods, urban areas, or other noise-sensitive zones.

Run time may vary based on battery type, charge level and capacity, model, operating style and conditions. Batteries and chargers can be purchased separately or as a combined set with tool.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What a "Flop" First there are 3 safety devices you have to engage before you can start blowing anything, How Stupid! Then it has a very weak blow and it does blow for very long. This was a total waste of money. Poor Product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cadillac of cordless blowers I wanted a handheld cordless blower that is quiet, lightweight and powerful enough to handle fall leaf requirements. Even though I am a Stihl aficionado, I gave the popular black and gray blowers sold exclusively at a well-known home improvement store long and serious consideration before I bought this one, mainly because of the expense of this blower and its required battery tethering accessory. I'm a just a blue collar homeowner with a small, heavily treed residential lot, not a pro, but lately I've become more aware of the noise generated by my gas blower, even though gas blowers abound where I live. I've also owned a BGA 56 for a year and a half. It's my first cordless blower and it has become my most often-used yard implement. Long story short, this is the 56 on steroids. Is it worth it? Very subjective question, but in my opinion, yes. Keep in mind, you're buying a powerful, very quiet, extremely well-constructed blower made unusually light-weight because of its unique tethering arrangement, not just a standard "PRC-made" cordless blower. Also, if you intend to buy more tools within the AP system, the initial accessory purchases become easier to stomach. I'm happy with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BGA 100 It is light weight and easy to use; not as powerful as a gasoline powered blower but much more convenient for normal home use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Battery Powered Blower on the Market! The BGA-100 is powerful even without using the Boost function. The axial fan moves a lot of air (up to 495 cfm) at high velocity (140 mph), which translates to high force (about 17 Newtons). Moving the battery out of the tool makes it maneuverable and less tiring to operate. The blower exudes the typical Stihl quality - tough, high grade polymers with easy to operate ergonomic controls - nothing cheap here! Trigger speed control works well.You can't go wrong with the Stihl BGA-100 blower.
