Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is capable and very quiet. Bought the BGA 56 as a replacement for a disappointing lime green electric blower.I think this new Li-Ion battery Stihl BGA 56 blower is safer, quieter and more rugged.I am very happy so far after 1 month of every other day usage.I live in a heavily wooded area near a river that sometimes overflows its banks.We have a ton of mosquitoes lately and my bug zapper is clogging up almost nightly.I use my blower to clear out all those dead bugs. It does a perfect of it and it only takes a second. My previous green battery powered blower died after 1 year (battery stopped charging). It was cheap to buy, but I guess I got what paid for. Home depot refused to take give me my money back since it was after 90 days from purchase.My Stihl blower was relatively expensive, but I really get the feeling it is going to last a long time. Plus my new Stihl electric blower has a 2 YEAR warranty and if I have any problem, I can bring it back to the dealer I purchased it from (Buck Brother's, Libertyville, IL) and they will take care of it instead of me having to ship it off to a regional service center and hope I hear back from them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This blower has changed my life! I am a petite 5'4", 112# lady and the size, weight & convenience of this blower is perfect for me. I actually enjoy using it and do so almost daily as I live in heavily wooded lot w/ lots of leaves. Very light-weight and no cords or gasoline with which to mess. Powerful enough to blow heavy wet leaves out of a river rock drain. Battery only lasts ~20 minutes but that is plenty of time for me to blow garage, deck and patio areas. Also, battery is easy and quick to charge ~1 hour. You can always buy a second one to have on hand fully charged too. Just LOVE this blower. Now plan to explore more battery options from Stihl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, powerful, easy to use. Surprised by the power of an electric blower. Battery life is good. Lighter than I expected.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery is not as advertised "Clear a sidewalk, seven football fields long, on a single charge with this STIHL AK Series handheld blower." If you are going to clear anything 7 football fields long, you better run, before the battery dies

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful, Quiet and Reliable says it all! I've had a number of blowers/vacuums, gas, electric and battery operated. This beats them all. It is very powerful but yet quiet. It's well balanced and I like the extendable nozzle. I also like how you can control the blower speed with the trigger and how it maintains it's power even as the battery diminishes. I liked it so well, I showed it to my brother and he bought one. Stihl has always meant reliability to me. I have only owned it 2 months, but it has proven to be a 5-star winner to me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Recieved as a gift Not up to the Stihl namesake. As a gift from a loved one, I'll pretend to use it. Attractive.
