The Stihl BGA 57's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Stihl BGA 57 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • The Stihl BGA 57 expels air at speeds up to 123 MPH, making it standard in terms of air speed for battery-operated handheld blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Makita XBU01PT and its 208 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • Its max air volume rating (365 cubic feet per minute) means it is really not the biggest air producer of cordless handheld blowers. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the CAT DG651, which boasts with 800 CFM.
  • Users can expect a maximum autonomy of 25 minutes from its battery, which means the BGA 57 won't run as long as many other cordless handheld units before needing to be plugged in. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Makita CBU01Z which offers up to 300 minutes of runtime.
