Reviews

BGA 45 is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery runtime too little for 1000 square feet of light work. A nice toy but mine will not run 5 minutes doing very light work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad for small needs Good product I I agree with the person who said that dealers need to match customers to their specific products it's definitely not for large yards

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not enough power Love the way it feels and how long it last. But just not enough power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for small jobs This does exactly what I wanted, something to blow leaves out of the gsrage and patio. My 5 rating is based on my use. It is light weight and I am over 80 and a woman and am very happy. I also bought the hedge trimmer of equal value. No cords to drag along.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little blower, operates as manufacturer intended. When this unit was introduced it was intended for small yards, condos and apartments. All Stihl dealers were told this. In the Stihl full line product literature run time is listed as "up to 10 minutes", charge time as "210 to 300 minutes."I feel that the one and two star reviews this unit has gotten are a result of some dealers not properly educating their customers and matching them to the correct equipment for their needs resulting in unrealistic expectations on the part of the customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blower Great for deck, patio, firepit or steps on a maintenance basis. That is just what I purchased it for and it works well. I use my backpack Stihl for Spring and Fall cleanup. I get 15-18 min. out of a charge and that is more than enough. BTW, I live in the middle of the Nicolet National Forest.
