Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE my new Stihl blower! My husband uses a large backpack-style Stihl blower for big jobs around the yard, but I wanted something I could use easily and instantly--without having to worry about gas or starting it with a pull cord. The Stihl dealer pointed me to the BGA 56, and it is absolutely PERFECT. On one charge, I can clear a 600 sf deck, three 240 sf porches, walkways, and railings--three times! It's lightweight, not very noisy, and easy to use for someone with small hands. It works great to clear pollen and debris off the lawn furniture, too. I definitely recommend this product. I wish I had one at my vacation home as well to clear the decks, stairs, and docks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No More Mixin Gas! Love my new STIHL BGA 56 blower. Have used it now for a couple of weeks. Easy to use and has good power. Much less noise than my old gas powered blower. Lightweight and easy to use. You need to keep the battery charged at all times. Battery last around 20-30 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product The best feature for this product is not having to deal with a gas motor or an extension cord. The battery that came with this unit allows me three-four uses before charging. After I cut my yard (over 16,000 sqft), I trim around the house, both sides of my 120 ft long driveway and around times the mover cannot get close to. The battery size is pergact for my needs. The wind velocity is not as powerful as my electric blower, but it gets the job done fine - I have zero complaints. Weight is also a non-issue, especially with the smaller size battery. My wife can handle it fine, in fact, better than our electric blower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as you would expect of a Stihl product. Bought to use around new home. Works great and no need for fuel or cord. Has plenty of power and easy to use. My wife will love it for sweeping of the deck & front porch!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Bad I purchased this to replace B&D blower, 20V. That blower gets much better in crevices. I’m no pro on blowers. The Stihl is not as heavy as I anticipated :). Battery lasts to complete blowing grass clippings. Disappointed it doesn’t blow things out of cracks in sidewalk. Very pricey as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable This little blower is a jewel for blowing off my drive down where I run out of power cord with my electric blower. I really am happy with this product and wish I had found it a long time ago. Most battery blowers do not come with a battery and charger but don't worry about this one because it delivers a fast charge with the battery provided.
