Perfect for me


I have used this machine for about 4 years. It was my first move into battery garden tools. I now Stihl mower, hedger and trimmer as well as the blower. The blower has as much power as my old petrol blower, but no fuel fumes or 2 stroke problems, and a lot less noise. It is always ready to go. It uses battery fairly quickly (air is heavy stuff), but absolutely adequate for domestic use. I have two batteries and a fast charger and never run out of battery when I am working in the yard.

False Advertising


Work for a cleaning company that bought nearly all the Stihl 36 volt battery blowers in the stihl melbourne warehouse. The battery runs out in 10 minutes and takes 2 hours to charge. Stihl said run time was to be 25 minutes and charger was "fast" ( we didn't ask how fast though. Looks like stihl pulled a swifty on us). The power is nothing like the 4 stroke makita blower we were using before, even though stihl claim to be equivalent. RUBBISH

Purchased in January 2019.

STIHL BGA 85 Cordless Blower


Power is great, the ease of use is as well, but the battery usage time leaves a lot to be desired. The advertised running time is 23min. 10 to 12 min is the best you can expect. After just a few charges & usages I asked my dealer about the operating time difference. The battery was tested and was in perfect working order. The Stihl workshop said the 10 to 11 min time was the more accurate running time.
Ease of use
Battery running time is very short for the price.

This thing is brilliant. Works just like a petrol blower but without all the hassle and noise. As the other reviewers said it is expensive but I think stihl have the whole cordless range on sale at the moment. I just bought the cordless mower and to be completely honest it cuts better then the petrol mower. The Stihl cordless gear is the future of yard care!
Same power as a petrol blower. Without the hassle

Stihl 36volt cordless blower


I've had 240volt blowers before, but stopped using them for lack of power. This cordless machine blows leaves and detritus like a tornado! Rivals the performance of many petrol powered equivalents. Easy to use. The turbo charger can recharge the battery in about 20 minutes, thanks to it's cooling fan. Haven't managed to run the battery flat, yet, as it just keeps going.
Cordless, very powerful, quick to recharge.
Expensive, but it is the phenomenal 'Stihl' brand. May be heavy for some users

Great cordless tool - closes the gap between Petrol/Mains powered tools and cordless tools.
