BGA 45 is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from very short run-time I have a 1500 sq. ft. driveway and with a full charge, this blower will not clean it when there is only a small amount of debris. Less than 20 mins. run-time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super tool I bought this blower from a local distributor a couple of weeks ago, for my wife since she has trouble getting our heavy duty Stihl gas blower started being petite. It is great not only for her but i use it all the time for small jobs.After giving it a full charge, i found it worked for 15 min straight doing a gravel road at about 80 F today. interesting, it runs at full power all the way until it just stops. I didn't get a warning by it running sort of slow before it just stops! I am okay with that as long as i know it is going to stop after 15 minutes of continuous operation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY HAPPY I am happily surprised how great this blower is. It is light weight (with Rheumatoid Arthritis lightweight was a must) but still very powerful. It does all we need it to do with ease and quickly. The charger is easy to use and charges quickly and keeps the charge for a long time. We are very happy with this blower!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little tool I don't think the review score matches up with how great this tool is. I think the expectations are probably too high it does a great job of clearing a sidewalk of about 100 ft and I think that's what it's intended for it clears a deck easily enough and walkways and pathways or driveway after you dust it up with sawdust

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product. Be embarrassed Terrible product. Surprised Stihl would manufacture such a inferior product. Tech supports at Stihl headquarters said he has competitive brand at his house because all Stihl blowers are inferior to competitors

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, love, love this blower! I wanted a lightweight blower to use on walkways, decks, and an asphalt driveway, and this model is PERFECT! Hubby has a gas blower for the lawn, but it’s to bulky for me. This Stihl unit is so simple to use and so lightweight, I love it. While it does need to be charged every other time I use it, I’m able to easily clear two 600 sf decks with stairs, a concrete patio, walkway, landings, and stairs down to the dock each time. It’s so simple to charge, it’s not a big deal. I absolutely love this tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect if used as intended Just purchased today. Bright it home, plugged it in to charge, and used it immediately. Was able to test it at the store before I bought it. The power is great unless you think you are going to go out and blow a yard full of foot deep leaves. Cleared two porches, under one porch, the garage and my backyard patio on the first charge. It was not dead at the end but was down to one bar. Cut it off between spots, don't blow aimlessly and be efficient with your time. It does only last probably ten minutes but if you minimize waste, it will do the job just fine. Do not buy this blower thinking you are going to blow your yard full of leaves. It's strong enough to blow some leaves but will need multiple charges.
