    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.
