Rated 1 out of 5 by from Back to the drawing board! STIHL products are the best out there and very durable but this one should go back to the drawing board. I didnt want to use my gas version to blow off the deck because it's too loud and leaves you smelling like gas so this was perfect...I thought. Barely gets ten minutes and dead with no warning. Can't even blow off my deck in that time. Back it goes. Shame because I have owned three STIHL gas products for twenty years and spent pennies on maintenance and amazing products. Too bad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Birthday Gift Gone Bad I was excited to receive the Stihl blower for my 60th birthday. I am an addict when it comes to leaf blowing. I believe this model is the antidote for my excessive compulsive behavior as it relates to Leaf blowing. I experienced at the most 20 minutes of usage and then to have to wait for the red light warning not to charge is a bummer. This product did not come close to meeting by expectations. Very disappointed and when originally was so excited about the 60th birthday present.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for small jobs This unit does exactly what Stihl and the dealer said. Runs about 30 minutes and perfect for small jobs

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for what it was designed for Blower does a great job for what it was designed for yes it's a light-duty blower it does well enough for 800 square feet or so. If you need to do something that takes more than 20 minutes worth of blowing then you should probably get a heavy duty blower. It works great and is very lightweight I actually bought this for my elderly grandfather and my mother and it weighs maybe three and a half or four pounds and it is perfect for what we need it for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It only runs for 10 minutes Hours to charge and it runs for 10 minutes. A waste of time and money. I bought a broom and a rake instead. The chart in the Ace Hardware store tells you how many square feet it can cover....I have no concept of what that means. When I asked the ACE representative a more reasonable measure...As in, how long does it last? He responded about 30 minutes. 10 minutes at best.
