Product Description

"With this product there are no more cords to get out and I don't have to mix fuel or worry about getting the blower started after infrequent use. My wife loves it!"
-YARDNUT
Hamilton, Ohio

No gas. No cord. No emissions and almost no weight. The STIHL BGA 85 handheld blower features a powerful 36-volt, lithium-ion battery for excellent blowing power that is quiet, clean, and best of all, cordless. This lightweight blower is extremely compact, weighing a mere 7 lbs. without battery, yet it delivers over 100 mph of air to move stubborn yard debris. And don’t expect any gradual power drops – this blower will run at full speed until it’s time to recharge. An ideal blower for use around the home. And the BGA 85 blower is part of the STIHL battery-powered line. The battery can be used interchangeably among a family of other STIHL lithium-ion products – including chainsaws, grass trimmers, hedge trimmers, pole pruners, lawn mower, and cut-off machine.

Batteries & chargers can be purchased separately or as a combined set with tool.
Run time on a single battery charge can vary and depends on the battery type, charge level, tool model, operating conditions, and the user's operating style.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Almost! A great looking machine, not too loud, almost powerful enough to do the big jobs but even on a full charge the battery only lasted about 15 minutes tops. Sorry but I had to return it. I only had it for one day. Well me though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from leaf blower This light weight leaf blower is the best I've ever used. I live on a wooded this blower moves a lot of leaves. The battery lasts about 40 mins. and recharges quickly. So you have time for a little break.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good cordless power I own two of them,and the batteries usually outlast the task.
Date published: 2017-10-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product excellent on hard surfaces I purchased the BGA85 to blow debris/leaves off of my patio, walks & porch. It does a great job with plenty of power left in the battery. It will also blow a small amount of leaves in the yard. For my use it has plenty of power left in the battery. The unit is on the heavy side with the battery is installed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use and no waiting. Velocity excellent for hand held blower. Battery heavy and run time could be longer. No choking, starting or waiting. Just grab and go.
