Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, light, well balanced, powerfull This blower is great! Even my wife uses it. It is quiet, light, and powerful. We live in a dense neighborhood, it is so nice to have tools that don't wake up the neighbors. I never have to think twice before using it. Wish the battery would last longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my stihl No longer needed my Stihl backpack blower so I purchased the BGA 85 blower. love everything about it! Have since purchased an FSA 90 R trimmer and recently added an MSA 200 C chain saw. Love the no-gas part and the ease of operation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid with great power This is a great cordless blower. A battery lasts about 25 minutes going full power. Blows leaves, twigs and crud with ease, like a good gas blower. Tool is very well balanced, so easy to handle when in use. Also nice lighter weight and decent noise level, well below that of a gas blower. I was not wild about the cost, but once I started using the tool the price became much less of an issue given the performance of the blower. It is worth the expense. Plus no more having to deal with gas and oil. The fast charger works great too. Will be buying more of the tools in the future.
