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.

BGA 85 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 46.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacing gas equipment with battery I just replaced my gas backpack blower with a Stihl electric battery operated blower. I had previously replaced my gas string trimmer and hedge trimmer with Stihl electric units. Next to go will be a chain saw for a Stihl battery saw. I have a quick charger and two batteries that I can use to run any of the Stihl battery equipment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For quick driveway and mow strip clean out this product is perfect. Does the job for quick and easy clean-up. For heavier jobs the battery life is not long enough, so I bought the STHL power blower for fall and spring.
