Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like the reliablty of the equipment,it starts on the first pull everytime. I have several stihl products and everyone of them is still running strong. They are very dependable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelent for General public Although electric seems new for STIHL I took a chance at the best brand name. So far it has been great through the fall season. I would have liked the two speed offered with the BGE71 but did not want/need the bagger nor additional expense.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE THIS THING.... I have gone through so many gas blowers...I hate gas now. I am switching all of my tools to electric. This Stihl Blower is amazing. Light and super powerful. And no more messing with gas. Words can not say enough for this tool. I have the Stihl Trimmer (Electric) now.....I am done with gas. You will be very happy with this unit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This unit is a step back from the HANDY previous models of Stihl electric blowers! Having owned each of the previous models, I find this unit is lacking the features that made them so handy.I particularly miss the rear blower housing handle.For 2 handed use for sweeping motions, the top handle is awkward.Places hands too close together.The cord retainer is awkward and difficult.Although quieter, it's also less powerful.The discharge nozzle is too short and should be curved on the bottom.Bring back the features of the original, including the 2 speed motor
