BGA 56 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool for medium duty. I’m a residential user with one acre of land and many mature hardwood trees. I use three blowers, a Stihl BG50 handheld for clearing around the house and shrubs, a six horsepower rotary blower for moving the heaviest fall leaves and the Stihl BGA56 battery powered blower for lighter duty clearing on my deck, carport, driveway and sidewalk. This is the blower that I most often use year round. It is extremely convenient, lightweight, quiet and easy to use. It is not not the equivalent of a gas powered blower for moving large quantities of wet leaves in grassy areas but is so convenient for lighter duty use. It’s a great product and my local ACE HARDWARE is great to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My most used cordless tool. Lightweight, powerful, and long lasting battery. I'm able to blow out my 2 car garage, a driveway that can easily accommodate 6 vehicles, a 500 square foot back deck, my boat dock, and the front porch on a single charge with about 25% left. It sure beats using a broom, fun to use, and much faster. I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly effective tool I bought the BGA 56 for a few reasons , I was tired of mixing gas for my other blower and wasn’t crazy about the two stroke fuel smell, the BGA 56 can be turned upside down and held over your head without pouring gas on your head when you blow dry your car,, it is powerful enough for all the tasks I have for it and the run time is plenty for what I use it for, buy one it’s a great value, very functional blower!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from handy Great portable blower. I use this to clean off slides on our camper before retracting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bought the wrong one Stores should have a model that you can test. I have bought a lot of yard equipment this was by far my worst purchase. This unit is much heavier than other brands I have had. This unit has no power to clean under hedges, very disappointing. Hopefully I can recoup some of my purchase cost selling at a garage sale. I will of course let the purchaser try before buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for around the yard and house! I absolutely love this blower! It is just what I was a looking for in a light weight but yet still powerful blower. It simple to use and simple to charge. I've have yet to be disappointed in Stihl products!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and handle I like the quick connect of battery and the lights showing the remaining power. I can get four usages off of one charge. Product is light weight and I can start and operate it with one hand if I desire. This is so much more convenient than the electric model I used to have.
