Overview of the Stihl BGA 45

  • Power: The Stihl BGA 45 can force 235 cubic feet of air per minute (CFM) from its nozzle at a maximum speed of 85 MPH.
  • Power delivery: The BGA 45 is a battery-operated unit, so it doesn’t need to be plugged in during use. Users will enjoy the added mobility of its cordless design.
  • Battery: Its 2 Ah 18 V Li-ion battery (1 battery included) means that a user can operate the BGA 45 for an estimated 10 minutes on a full charge.
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. When compared to other electric handheld leaf blowers, the Stihl BGA 45 stands out due to its lower weight: just 4.4 lbs.
  • Speed Settings: The BGA 45 by Stihl has just one speed setting.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 76 dB, the BGA 45 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric handheld category.

The Stihl BGA 45's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Stihl BGA 45 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • The air speed of the Stihl BGA 45 maxes out at 85 MPH. While more than adequate for many jobs, its air speed is below average among other electric handheld leaf blowers (the one expelling air at the fastest speed being the Worx WG518 with 250 MPH).
  • Regarding its power, the airflow of the Stihl BGA 45 can reach 235 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute), which is on the low end for electric handheld leaf blowers (the biggest expelled air volume belonging to the Toro PowerJet™ F700 51624 with 725 CFM).
  • Users can expect an autonomy of 10 minutes from its battery, which means the BGA 45 won't run as long as many other cordless handheld leaf blowers before needing to be plugged in (the one with the best autonomy being the EGO POWER+ 580 CFM LB5804 with up to 180 minutes of runtime).

The bottom line

  • Lightweight (4.4 lbs)
  • Acceptable Noise (76 dB)
  • No Speed Variation
  • Low CFM (235 CFM)
  • Low MPH (85 MPH)
  • Low Autonomy (10 mins)

    The BGA 45 blower is a poor purchase choice in my view. Does not hold a charge very long and once you have re charged it 50 times more or less, it becomes a paper weight. Unable to accept a charge and battery is not removeable. Poor buying decision on my part as I thought Stihl was a better product, something similar to the chain saw, but I am wrong.

    + PROS: it does a nice job for a short while
    - CONS: battery can not be accessed and will not take a charge after 50 re charges . not worth the money. do not buy if you plan for a long term item.
