Reviews

BG-KM Blower is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty Design of Blower Shaft I purchased a Kombi 130R motor, blower, string trimmer, and tiller attachment this Spring (2017). After two-three minutes of operation the blower stopped working. I returned it to the dealer and got a replacement. The second blower, worked for about two-three minutes and stopped working again. Returned to dealer and got a third blower unit. You guessed it, the same thing occurred. In each case, the blower shaft broke. There is definitely a problem with the shaft in these units when used with a 130R unit, perhaps too much power for the blower shaft. Stihl says they are working on new hardened steel shaft for blower, but until then I would not recommend. The string trimmer works fine, but I haven't used the tiller yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great. Excellent Tool I've had this blower for over a year and it really works very well. I was skeptical at first since I had never seen anyone use one, but it really works. I use it with the Stihl KM-131R. It has plenty of force and I have never been disappointed. I'm not a lawn service but I mow 2-5 yard a week and the blower works great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good power...when it works My BG-KM works great if it isn't tilted upward before it's started. Otherwise, it seems to get disconnected and the blower doesn't work without vigorous shaking when pointed downwards. Have tolerated this condition, even after having the dealer "repair" it. I've been using this with a Stihl KM130 for about five years.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken Shaft Drive shaft sheared off inside the blower after a couple hours of use. Reading reviews, this appears to be a common problem with this unit. I don't know if it is defective material or bad design. Replacement drive shafts aren't stocked locally (who would expect the shaft to shear off?). Unit is out of service for 1 to 2 weeks.Local dealer is great and offered me a loaner while waiting for parts. I'm hoping Stihl just got a batch of defective drive shafts and that it isn't a design defect. That would mean there's a chance that this repair will be the end of this problem for me. If it is a design issue then it probably won't be the last time I have the problem.I was using this with a 130 motor. The unit had adequate blowing power. It is nice and light and balances well on the system.At this point I could not recommend the purchase of this blower. I expect to get a lot more than a couple hours use from any piece of Stihl equipment. This did not meet my expectations.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shaft Keeps breaking For the most part I have always loved stihl equipment . But when I bought the BG-KM Blower after about two weeks the shaft broke returned it to the hardware store where I bought it they replaced the shaft. About a week and a half later it broke again still refused to replace it and I had to wait almost 3 weeks to get it fixed because of back log of parts. After replacing bearings and the shaft again it broke in one week this time I dropped it off at the hardware store and decided to buy a much larger backpack blower. Don't know if that was the Lemon or it's just bad design. Very unhappy with steel not moving up to the plate to replace it.David

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even Works With Snow This week we got a little over a inch of snow so I thought what the heck were have a little mad science experiment. I have a KM130 that I had recently filled with the MOTO MIX since its winter and I don't want carb issues.Get this the KM130 started first pull when it was 15 degrees out (cold as heck) with the choke on.The blower blew the snow off of the walkway a lot quicker than I could have shoveled it.I find that this blower is a great utility blower and works well for a variety of uses. has power rating of 15 Newtons which is about the most your going to get out of a hand held blower before going up to a back pack blower.I typically use it to blow the grass off of a walkway and it works excellent for that and it is easy to change the head after I have used the trimmer attachment. It works well with dry leaves but a backpack blower would work better and would handle it if the leaves are damp, plus you cant go wrong with a BR600!All in all it is built well and lasts. Easy to change the attachment from other attachments, blows leafs better than any handheld attachment on the markIet before going to back pack blowers. Price is right too if you already have the power unit. I am happy with this unit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shaft Broke After First 5 Hours Blower has pretty good power. Using it with the 130 powerhead. Unfortunately this is a one star product because the shaft broke with only 5 hours of use. Heading to dealership now to see if I can get a replacement or credit towards a better blower. Will update review based on results. Just purchased 2 weeks ago.
