BGA 100

BGA 100
When in boost mode, the BGA 100 is the most powerful dedicated handheld blower in the STIHL range. Batteries & chargers can be purchased separately or as a combined set with tool.

Product Description

Note: Must be used with battery belt or AR style backpack battery sold 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.

Batteries & chargers can be purchased separately or as a combined set with tool.

BGA 100 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great We have used this blower for our garages, patio (which is quite large), and drives. Blows rocks, debris, etc and I can do all of them on a single charge. I was tired of the others I had where I needed several batteries to complete the job and they did not have near the blower velocity that this one does. I actually bought it for my wife since she just can't seem to fire up the gas blower :) But, I still seem to be the one that uses it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from You can do better for less money This Stihl blower is very frustrating to use because it has a dead-man switch that you have to constantly engage. There's absolutely no reason to have that on a battery powered blower. All it does is interrupt your work. I have a competitor's product that is so much easier to use, and cost less. Had this Stihl blower not been a gift, I would have immediately returned it once I discovered what a nuisance the kill switch is. I would highly recommend their design engineers go back to the drawing board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can't miss with this My neighbors have one of these blowers, and when I saw what it would do, I immediately went to Ace Hardware in Hixson, TN and purchased one. It is a great little blower and did our leaves without any trouble. I hope to purchase a second battery, though the recharge on this one is super fast. Thanks, Skill, for a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works just as I expected it to It worked just as I expected it to. It performed well and the battery lasted like it should. My last other brand did not work well and did not last at all

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best commercial quality emission-free blower available If emission-free performance is a necessity, the BGA 100 is the best commercial quality blower available. Its performance does not match professional-grade gas powered blowers when blowing heavy, wet leaves, but it is more than adequate clearing paved surfaces of clippings, fertilizer and mulch. The unit is not heavy, but in periods of extended use, expect to switch hands frequently to reduce fatigue. The unit is relatively quiet (my clients have complimented this feature) and is vibration-free. Although the price of this blower is costly when coupled with the AR 3000 battery back pack, and its power is average at best, I gladly accept these trade-offs for the ability to breathe fresh air as I perform my work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good tool I am looking forward to using this for a full season, and might update this review. The blower is light weight and has good power. I already had the battery chain saw which I love so I figure I'd continue with Stihl products so I can share batteries and charger. The BGA blower is over priced, and requires the user buy a battery box with power cord that is almost a third of the price of the blower. These are accessories that should come with the blower. The only reason I didn't recommend this tool is that it isn't worth the total cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful & convenient. Pricey. This blower is plenty powerful for homeowner needs. The convenience of the battery power system makes it very easy to use. Setup and commence work quickly! cords to manage.I have an extended driveway (300+ feet) that needs grass, tree limbs, and dropped acorns pushed away on a routine basis. The mobility of the battery pack is ideal for this.The cost of the battery, the battery bag and the blower is pricey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous and Powerful Yard Blower I didn't know how this would compare to the powerful gas blowers, but I got tired of the noise and the gas and the pull to start.In my opinion, this blower is more powerful than the gas line blowers! Including the gas backpack. Now the Gas backpack blowers are for pro's who don't have to worry about battery life and usually go for longer period of times than you would with the battery blowers. This BGA100 is designed for the semi pro or home owner. I haven't tested for battery life because you'd have to run a full power test along with and multi range power test, which I haven't done as I'm more interested in just using the blower. My guess is that on full power, you'd have maybe 10-15 minutes. That's with the big battery, which I bought. But here's the thing, you'd never need full power when you use this guy anyway. during normal usage, I'd guess you'd have about 30mins useage, but that's a guess. Of course with the big capacity battery. One thing though, I might have purchased the BGA85 simply due to the fact that you don't have to wear the battery belt & cord which is not as convenient. But the BGA100 has the power I want and need and I didn't know about the BGA85. And when you need the power, you need it! The Blower itself is light. It's a big thing though! Looks really intimidating when you actually see it in person!!
