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 blower is battery-operated, so the operator won’t need to worry about getting tripped up by pesky cords when they’re busy getting work done.
  • Battery: It has a 2 Ah 18 V Li-ion battery (1 battery included) that can work reliably for up to 10 minutes if completely charged.
  • Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. Among other cordless handheld blowers, the Stihl BGA 45 can be considered light, weighing only 4.4 lbs.
  • Speed Settings: The Stihl BGA 45 does not have multiple speed settings. Once the blower is turned on, it always operates at the same speed.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 76 dB can be considered the standard for similar electric handheld blowers.

  • Its max air volume rating (235 cubic feet per minute) means it is really not the biggest air producer of cordless handheld leaf blowers (the biggest expelled air volume belonging to the Poulan Pro PRB675i with 675 CFM).
  • Autonomy-wise, with up to 10 minutes of autonomy on a full charge, the BGA 45 is on the low end when compared with other cordless handheld units (the one with the best autonomy being the EGO POWER+ 580 CFM LB5804 with up to 180 minutes of runtime).

    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.
