Reviews

BGA 56 is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful, Quiet and Reliable says it all! I've had a number of blowers/vacuums, gas, electric and battery operated. This beats them all. It is very powerful but yet quiet. It's well balanced and I like the extendable nozzle. I also like how you can control the blower speed with the trigger and how it maintains it's power even as the battery diminishes. I liked it so well, I showed it to my brother and he bought one. Stihl has always meant reliability to me. I have only owned it 2 months, but it has proven to be a 5-star winner to me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Recieved as a gift Not up to the Stihl namesake. As a gift from a loved one, I'll pretend to use it. Attractive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is very user friendly I purchased this blower at Swinehart's in Baldwin Ga. It is powerful and light weight and very handy. I use it in my carport and basement. I find it to be powerful and fun to use I didn't think it would be so efficient in these areas . I also think it will pay for itself by not buying fuel and not having to crank a gas blower every time I go in the basement. Wonderful product very satisfied!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed! I don't mind pay more for quality. But the power this blower has is very poor. I've adjusted the fuel mixture as far as is goes, it's better than it was but still poor power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent blower Got tired of gas blower not starting at the beginning of season due to gummed up gas lines. I have a fairly large lot with a pool, long driveway and sidewalk. I can blow off everything without needing a recharge.
