Rated 1 out of 5 by from No power at ALL For the price of this blower, I expected far more than a little bit of wind. Battery dies quickly and even at full charge it has almost no power. Don't waste your money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fell Short This product had potential. Based on the price, and information on the product I thought I found my type of right unit. The price seemed fair for 20 min of battery use for my small corner lot service.It was not very powerful, but it performed enough. The issue was that battery did not last but anywhere between 5 and 7 minutes. I need something a little longer than 10 min, even if it had lasted 15 on single charge I think I would had kept the unit. This experience kind of left a bad taste in my mouth with Stihl products. So I will have to look elsewhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My wifwe loves it My wife is the primary user. Her top feature is the light weight. I prefer a bigger unit as this one only lasts a short time per charge, but we knew that prior to purchase. We are happy with the unit although

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would recommend you NOT waste your money!! Never been so disappointed in a product. Charge lasts LESS than 10 minutes; very frustrating when you want to finish your work!! Gave up my other battery powered blower after many great years of use and thought this Stihl product would be as great as it's name implies! NOT!!! Would definitely recommend you NOT waste your money and buy a product you can depend on---especially for the price you pay!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my needs This is my second Stihl leaf blower. I have a petrol powered blower for large areas. I bought this blower for daily blowing of deck and courtyard areas during Autumn. It is much lighter than the petrol blower and thankfully much quieter. Another advantage is that my wife is able to use this blower. Battery life is more than adequate for my needs and I recharge it overnight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery life Battery lasts less than 10 minutes. DO NOT BUY this product unless you have a very small area to clear

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't hold a charge Only used this one time and it ran for 7 minutes- all the led bars were lit up red afterward...Why Stihl would put their great name on a product this bad is beyond me-I dont expect this to run for thirty minutes but below ten is very poor -The power is limited and does not constitute a good value at this price point -I wonder how many times this one would re-charge before its unusable?There is not an exchangeable battery for this unit-- I returned the item immediately...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only holds a 10 minute charge If you want to work for 10 minutes and then rest for the next 3-5 hours while battery recharges, then this is the blower for you. So surprised with this useless blower because I love my Stihl 193T chainsaw.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from THIS WAS THE WORST PRODUCT I HAVE EVER PURCHASED This is the first time I have ever commented on a product of any brand! This battery powered hedge trimmer is a constant problem. With high hopes, from previous Stihl products purchases, this item was for residential use, an occasional user, to lightly trim hedges. NOT HARD work. Not heavy duty WORK. Unfortunately, something failed. Was it the technology, engineering and/or product field testing that failed? Even using the Stihl blade cleaning spray at $10 a can before and after each use, only ending in further gumming up the trimmer blades, and repeated trips back to the local Stihl dealer. The trimmer seems to have insufficient torque, but I'm sure their engineers know. Though the battery was fully charged, the trimmer would NOT engage the blades. This happen on numerous occasions, at different outdoor temperatures. Do yourself a favor, DO NOT purchase this!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery Charge Life is Too Short Nicely light weight; however, battery charge is good for about ten minutes, according to a Stihl representative. I thought I had a defective blower because it stopped working so quickly. Found out it was the battery. It takes almost three hours to charge and only a few minutes to lose its charge. Not useful even for a quick job.
Date published: 2017-11-13
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor run time. Power is average, about what I expected. What I didn't expect was for the battery to die after 10 minutes or less. Should have left this on the shelf.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Run Time Very Disappointing I own two other Stihl battery operated tools in addition to gas powered yard tools. I LOVE the battery chain saw which is a very fine workhorse. The hedge trimmer is also great and both have terrific run times. When I was ready to share sweeping chores with a blower I went to my Stihl dealer, expecting another great product. There were three models but this one was the most appealing due to ease of use and weight for this active senior woman. I was stunned when it ran out of juice in about 7-8 minutes of very light use on the front porch and small back deck. I thought I had not charged it properly so I charged it again and had a repeat experience, only a few minutes of use. The "leaf chart" on their information board is misleading, implying it will run longer than it will. I am returning this blower. I suggest that Stihl use a better battery on this blower as the short run time diminishes their fine reputation. I also suggest that they show expected run times ( maybe use the word continuous), with the understanding they may vary in their advertising materials. At the very least it would give consumers a point of comparison. It should also be made clear that this blower is for very LIGHT use and run time is less than 9 minutes.

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

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
