The perfect leaf blower for quiet environments
You can use Stihl’s BGA 57 Cordless Leaf Blower without the need for ear protection. Despite this, the handheld blower can still achieve a differing airspeed of 123 mph, suitable for blowing leaves and debris across any garden. An adjustable blower tube allows you the choice of 3 lengths to suit the users’ height, avoiding a loss of blowing power due to excessive distance from the floor.
The device is perfectly balanced during operation to reduce fatigue. The operators’ control handle is easy to use, with the trigger lockout designed symmetrically for right or left-handed use.
The soft grip absorbs some of the vibrations and is extremely easy to grip. The eyelet for wall mounting is a hanging opening in the handle housing where you can hang the device securely on the wall.
Available as a blowing kit with a battery and charger
The BGA57 is sold shell only for those who already have an AK series battery. However, should you need the complete battery charging set, you can select from the options.
The AK 20 battery will provide around 22 minutes of blowing time when fully charged, with the AL 101 providing the total charge in 2 hours.
Just look at the handy LED indicator to show when you need to power your batteries back up.
