Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just right for my needs Still early but I am very pleased with the performance of this blower. I really like the fact that battery charging is very efficient. great product for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall good product I have 2 batteries, each last approximately 30 minutes. When fall comes, I will use for approximately 20 minutes, and recharge. I have a large yard with plenty of trees, and the Stihl blower will work good. Getting to old to blow for long periods of time. One other thing I like, is I can get on my carport roof, and front porch to blow off, and not have to hook up 100 ft electrical cord. Glad I purchased this blower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blower for a lady light weight I love this blower because I have a head injury from being hit by a car on my bicycle and can't be around machinery that has a high vibration or too heavy. This one is not only light but it doesn't bother my head at all, it does not vibrate and the sound is so soft too. I love it. I went out and bought another battery so if I am working for longer I can just switch batteries and put the other battery in to charge so it's ready for me. I was able to cut way back on professional services because now I can blow my own back patio off with ease. I am a designer and sometimes just need to touch up an entrance outside and this one doesn't blow so hard that it throws things around but it blows a perfect amount that it picks up the leaves and makes it easy for me. I am so happy with it. Let the men lug around those heavy machines this one is easier for the things I need it to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works great I replaced a gas powered blower with the BGA56, and I love the lighter weight and dependability of the BGA56. I get instant blower without the hassle of trying to start the gas blower. I highly recommend the BGA56 for other homeowners.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light weight and balanced, it makes work a pleasure Great design, great balance, great power, well put together. In fact, it feels so great that you can spend lots of time using it. Like all battery powered products, the battery runs down, and the work stops. Urge to kill!. solution is to acquire a stand-by battery, and take a break between batteries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice surprise This blower is more powerful than I counted on for a handheld battery tool. Works great. It’s not my BR 700 backpack blower but it isn’t supposed to be. Use it to blow off the deck and driveway. Does a nice job and battery longevity is pretty darn good. Recharges quickly too. This is actually fun to use. I have many STIHL gas powered products and just recently expanded into the battery line. Very nice quality and I am impressed with the form fit and functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and light, convenient and long lasting between charges. This blower is light and so convenient that I end up using it way more often and for more jobs than I do with my gas powered blower. In fact I've had this blower 5 months and haven't started my gas power blower since. The BGA 56 has been great for all the around the house needs including blowing out the garage with no residual fumes to blowing the snow off the vehicles and walkway!
