BGA 56 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light weight and balanced, it makes work a pleasure Great design, great balance, great power, well put together. In fact, it feels so great that you can spend lots of time using it. Like all battery powered products, the battery runs down, and the work stops. Urge to kill!. solution is to acquire a stand-by battery, and take a break between batteries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice surprise This blower is more powerful than I counted on for a handheld battery tool. Works great. It’s not my BR 700 backpack blower but it isn’t supposed to be. Use it to blow off the deck and driveway. Does a nice job and battery longevity is pretty darn good. Recharges quickly too. This is actually fun to use. I have many STIHL gas powered products and just recently expanded into the battery line. Very nice quality and I am impressed with the form fit and functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and light, convenient and long lasting between charges. This blower is light and so convenient that I end up using it way more often and for more jobs than I do with my gas powered blower. In fact I've had this blower 5 months and haven't started my gas power blower since. The BGA 56 has been great for all the around the house needs including blowing out the garage with no residual fumes to blowing the snow off the vehicles and walkway!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Snowblower I specifically bought this 'blower (in a package that included a battery and charger) to remove powdery snow, which is commonplace here in wintertime western South Dakota. When snowfall deposition is an inch to two inches, and powdery, this machine completely removes snow very well. My (gas-powered) Stihl BR550 is not recommended for use in the low temperatures we see hereabouts in wintertime, so the BGA56 does the job. It clears my deck and sidewalks quickly and still has sufficient battery reserve to clear other major portions of my wide driveway. Both my wife and I use it with no difficulties whatsoever; it is lightweight and easily handled. I doubt if the BGA56 would effectively move deep, heavy, wet snow (like we generally see in springtime), but for that I have a snowblower and tractor with hydraulically-powered blade. The BGA56 battery charges fully in a short time, and as I mentioned, it lasts for a long time once fully charged. I am a longtime Stihl customer (chainsaw, weedwhacker, and backpack 'blower) and this battery-powered handheld 'blower's performance reinforces my conviction that this company continues to manufacture outstanding products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lawn Blower This was purchased because my gas powered one was always way too hard for me to start and then it finally died. At that point I hired someone to do my lawn. However, I wanted a blower to blow out the garage or my back sidewalk. I love this one. I am a woman and loved to work in my yard but to crank the gas ones were too much. When I saw this one at Ace Hardware I was sold. It is light weight and works great. And you only have to charge the battery and go.
