The Stihl BGA 57 battery-powered blower puts out 103 MPH of average air velocity (123 MPH maximum air velocity) combined with 365 cfm for effective clearing of leaves and other yard debris. Weighing just 7.8 lbs. with the Stihl AK 20 36V battery, the BGA 57 is compact and portable. A slim design and even weight distribution allow the blower to be held close to the user’s body, keeping fatigue to a minimum while maximizing maneuverability. Additional comfort features include a trigger switch that allows users to easily start the unit with either the left or right hand, a rubberized handle for comfortable grip, and a tube that easily adjusts to three lengths to suit different user heights.
