Overview of the Stihl BGA 300

The Stihl BGA 300 in use

The Stihl BGA 300

  • Power: The BGA 300 is a cordless blower made by Stihl. It has a maximum air speed of 192 MPH and its nozzle can expel a max air volume of 571 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Power delivery: This blower has a brushless, battery-operated motor. Thus, the user won’t have to worry about tripping over pesky cords when they’re busy working their lawn.
  • Battery: Its 41.2 Ah 36 V Li-ion battery (AR3000L battery not included) enables the blower to run for up to 140 minutes without needing to recharge.
  • Handling: By design, this model isn’t the smallest leaf blower on the market. It’s meant to be carried as a backpack so that the bulk of the unit is out of the way and the user’s hands are free to manipulate the nozzle. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. However, for an electric backpack blower, the Stihl BGA 300 is heavier than most, weighing 16.5 lbs without any battery.
  • Speed Settings: Not all jobs need full power. The BGA 300 has 4 speed settings so, you can blow more or less air from the blower depending on the job.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 62 dB can be considered the standard for similar electric backpack blowers.
