    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.

    Not worth the price. Good power for a battery unit but needs more amp hours. 10 minutes of run time barely clears a driveway, never mind leaves…

    + PROS: Has the Stihl name and color...that’s about all.
    - CONS: RE: For those who are looking for a portable and convenient leaf blower, this model is a strong candidate. It’s designed for easy handling and use, and its size means it’s easily carried and stored. When compared to other cordless handheld blowers, the Stihl BGA 45 stands out due to its lower weight: just 4.4 lbs. Buy this if your yard is the size of a car. Anything bigger then don’t waste your money. Power was impressive for a battery operated unit. Just needs a lot more Amp hours...
