  • Battery: Its 2.8 Ah 36 V Li-ion battery (1 battery included) enables the blower to run for up to 20 minutes without needing to a recharge.
  • Handling: Being handheld, this blower has a good maneuverability and is meant to be easier to carry around over a small period of time. At 7.3 lbs, the Stihl BGA 56 is within the average weight range of electric handheld leaf blowers.

The Stihl BGA 56's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Stihl BGA 56 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • The air speed of the Stihl BGA 56 maxes out at 100 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).
  • It has a maximum air volume output of 353 CFM (cubic feet per minute). With this output rating, the BGA 56 is well within average in relation to similar 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 20 minutes from its battery, which means the BGA 56 won't run as long as 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).
