BGA 56 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use for an older woman This is exactly what I was looking for. I am 69 years old and have back and arm issues. I am able to use this blower to easily clear my porch of leaves. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really convenient and well-designed This is such a vast improvement over electrical blowers requiring cords. Just insert the battery and you're ready. No more dragging cords, etc. The trade-off is the duration of the charge, which is about 20 minutes of run time. The power is plenty for blowing lots of leaves off of a long uphill driveway and a large wraparound deck in less than the 20 minutes charge. Overall, I'm delighted with this new Stihl product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great rechargeable blower. We had a gas unit before and I got tired of trying to start it. This one has so much power, runs a long time and recharges fast. so lightweight. I use it to blow out debris in the garage, keep yard tip top and blow the patio debris awasy from the pool. It is so easy to use and for the mid choice, great value. very quiet yet lots of power. I recommended it to friends, neighbors and family. It works well even on wet leaves and to blow out the back of our truck after taking yard waste to the dump. great to blow debris off slides on our fifth wheel and a quick clearing of campsites. Just can't say enough. Even used it to dry off items we washed to put in storage or blow off water off patio chairs and tables. super buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great powerful blower I've been talking about buying this blower for awhile now, & FINALLY decided to buy one. LOTS of power! We have big maple trees that have dropped a lot of leafs. In years past, it was hard to blow those big leafs into a pile. With my BGA 56 blower, it was so much easier to do. Love this unit. Loved it so much that I also purchased a FSA 56 trimmer! Love that product also!I would buy Stihl products again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BGA-56 is perfect for deck, walks and driveway. My BGA-56 is a winner! Perfect for blowing leaves from deck and driveway and, in a pinch, it's not bad on the lawn too. It is easy to use. Even my wife loves it and uses it - - the best compliment I can think of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from really pleased with this product This battery powered blower is great. Easy to use and the battery stays charged for all we need it for. It is not too heavy and has great power. Would recommend to anyone for patios, porches and landscaping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should'a got one of these long ago. Beats unreeling/reeling electrical cords and plugging in my other leaf blower. Although my plug-in is rated to have more power, I find the STIHL BGA 65 to be much more effective for my decks and driveway. I can do all of it within one charge. Light weight and balanced.
