Reviews

BGA 100 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
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! ...no 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!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Powerful After working with the full line of gas powered products on our 16 acres we have downsized to 1/2 acres in a quiet gated community. I decided to give the BGA 100 a try based on the convenience of battery power. What an amazingly quiet powerful blower. With two batteries and the 500 series charger, one is never without a fully charged battery in reserve. Highly recommend this blower for homeowner use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stihl a cut above the rest The BGA100 has tremendous power for such a lightweight handheld. I look forward to when a leaf falls in my yard so I can get this puppy out and blast it. The battery life is descent with the AP300 and I honestly just enjoy using it. The turbo feature is genius. No gas. No oil. It just works. Well done Stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacing my gas blowers and plug in electric These are great for our maintenance crews that work small to medium properties. Our clients really appreciate the low noise and no exhaust. I feel the fuel and repair savings will pay for the units in under two years. I am switching to as many products in the line as possible. Initial cost of batteries and charger are distributed over each additional tool, the more the merrier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Powerful and Lighweight!! This blower is practically weightless compared to all other handhelds (due to separate required battery adapter pack). The power this thing has is unreal. Battery life isn't great with standard small batteries, but sufficient for small jobs. Great blower!
