Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad for small needs Good product I I agree with the person who said that dealers need to match customers to their specific products it's definitely not for large yards

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for small jobs This does exactly what I wanted, something to blow leaves out of the gsrage and patio. My 5 rating is based on my use. It is light weight and I am over 80 and a woman and am very happy. I also bought the hedge trimmer of equal value. No cords to drag along.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice little blower, operates as manufacturer intended. When this unit was introduced it was intended for small yards, condos and apartments. All Stihl dealers were told this. In the Stihl full line product literature run time is listed as "up to 10 minutes", charge time as "210 to 300 minutes."I feel that the one and two star reviews this unit has gotten are a result of some dealers not properly educating their customers and matching them to the correct equipment for their needs resulting in unrealistic expectations on the part of the customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blower Great for deck, patio, firepit or steps on a maintenance basis. That is just what I purchased it for and it works well. I use my backpack Stihl for Spring and Fall cleanup. I get 15-18 min. out of a charge and that is more than enough. BTW, I live in the middle of the Nicolet National Forest.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for. I wanted something lite weight for use in garage porches & decks. But, did not want a gas powered engine. Useful for about 1/2 hour or so of work. Really like the rechargeable battery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Little Blower in Georgia My wife said "I would rather use the broom" when I was at Ace to purchase this little blower. I purchased the BGA45 to blow out the garage, blow off the pool deck, the front porch and just a quick touch up here and there. It really beats having to get the backpack out every time I need just a quick little clean up. The broom now has cobwebs on it because my wife is always using the Stihl BGA45.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Blower not up to par for Stihl Products Am disappointed in run time. Power is decent for a battery operated machine. However, given the quality of today's batteries, you need to use a better one. Stihl also needs to make the battery replaceable so a second or third battery can be kept charged and installed when necessary.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lacks power. Insufficient run time. Works about 10 minutes and needs 2 hours to recharge. Doesn't even blow water from a puddle
Date published: 2017-07-23
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor battery Disappointed only runs 10 minutes I can not blow the grass off my driveway have to do the complete job in 2 charges will not recommend anyone to buy one I think Stiihl need to offer a recall give us a chance to upgrade or to buy a gas model
Date published: 2017-07-21
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Back to the drawing board! STIHL products are the best out there and very durable but this one should go back to the drawing board. I didnt want to use my gas version to blow off the deck because it's too loud and leaves you smelling like gas so this was perfect...I thought. Barely gets ten minutes and dead with no warning. Can't even blow off my deck in that time. Back it goes. Shame because I have owned three STIHL gas products for twenty years and spent pennies on maintenance and amazing products. Too bad.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Birthday Gift Gone Bad I was excited to receive the Stihl blower for my 60th birthday. I am an addict when it comes to leaf blowing. I believe this model is the antidote for my excessive compulsive behavior as it relates to Leaf blowing. I experienced at the most 20 minutes of usage and then to have to wait for the red light warning not to charge is a bummer. This product did not come close to meeting by expectations. Very disappointed and when originally was so excited about the 60th birthday present.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for small jobs This unit does exactly what Stihl and the dealer said. Runs about 30 minutes and perfect for small jobs
Date published: 2017-05-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for what it was designed for Blower does a great job for what it was designed for yes it's a light-duty blower it does well enough for 800 square feet or so. If you need to do something that takes more than 20 minutes worth of blowing then you should probably get a heavy duty blower. It works great and is very lightweight I actually bought this for my elderly grandfather and my mother and it weighs maybe three and a half or four pounds and it is perfect for what we need it for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It only runs for 10 minutes Hours to charge and it runs for 10 minutes. A waste of time and money. I bought a broom and a rake instead. The chart in the Ace Hardware store tells you how many square feet it can cover....I have no concept of what that means. When I asked the ACE representative a more reasonable measure...As in, how long does it last? He responded about 30 minutes. 10 minutes at best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great when used for its capabilities The blower is intended for small yards and quick convenient jobs. The battery does only last about 30-35 mins but that is more than sufficient for a small yard. Read the recommended run times that Stihl advertises as they are accurate. My yard is 5000 sq ft. and I mow, trim, and than use the blower for 15-20 mins and than plug it in for next week. I like the blower because it is compact and lightweight and there is no messing with mixing gas and engine maintenance. If you have anything larger or needing more run time than what was described than you should probably look for a larger more powerful blower.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money With the BGA 45 fully charged, I climb the roof to blow off minor cedar litter. 8.5 minutes later I descend with a dead blower. I could not finish the job! Outside temperature: 8 degrees Celsius and sunny. Inside I attempt to recharge: three red lights indicates I must wait for the battery to cool! I can't believe we have wasted our money on a Stihl. This is what you get when you purchase a product touted as the best in its class. Garbage! Not to mention the blower strength is inadequate for a simple job.
Date published: 2017-05-07
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good power - very short battery life I agree with the other reviewer. I just purchased my BGA 45 today, fully charged it and put it to use cleaning my roof and gutters. At first I was very pleased; it's lightweight and powerful but after a very short time, about 25 minutes max of intermittent use, the battery life was spent. Very disappointing.
Date published: 2017-05-06
Rated 1 out of 5 by from BGA45 blower This blower takes over two hours to charge and lasts a total of 30 minutes run time! The dealer exchanged the first one because it was also getting hot BUT the second one was not any better it lasted 30 minutes and had to be recharged! I would not recommend this BGA 45
