BGE 61 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Lightweight and very versatile for a lot more than just leaves. When we cut our downed limbs up on our driveway, we use our blower to clear off the shavings and really small twigs. Saves sweeping! Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied with Product Blower is light weight, easy to handle and quiet. Blowing force is good for my heavily treed property and clears it quickly. One negative issue; the blower's electric cord 2 prong connection will not plug into my common 3 prong extension cords. An adapter or lighter gauge wire cord must be used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and Light. I bought this for my mother who wanted something to blow out her garden. I bought this model solely because of its weight. I was surprised at how powerful it was for such a small/light machine. She couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm sold! Great blower! I've never had an electric blower before, but just moved to a smaller house and no longer needed so much lawn equipment. I have a small lot and small patio and driveway/walkway. This blower has as much power as I was used to on my previous gas blower, but you plug it in and turn it on--so simple! No gas/oil mixture to fool with, and it's super light weight! I love it! I didn't rate the 'dependability' heading above because I haven't had it that long.
