Which STIHL leaf blower is right for you?

Petrol leaf blowers & garden vacuums

The BG 56 CE is STIHL’s entry-level handheld petrol leaf blower, but it’s still powerful thanks to its 2-MIX engine. STIHL’s 2-MIX  technology has been developed to maximise the power output and reduce fuel consumption so it’s extra efficient. Starting this  blower is simple too. This machine features STIHL’s tried and tested ErgoStart technology which means this leaf blower can be started easily and with little effort from a smooth pull of the cord.

Battery leaf blowers

If petrol tools aren’t for you, then why not consider a cordless battery-powered leaf blower? The BGA 45 leaf blower is part of STIHL’s range of garden power tools with integrated batteries. Designed for clearing small outdoor areas, this leaf blower is fitted with a built-in 18-volt battery and only weighs 2kg, making it easy to use. It’s also very quiet so you won’t disturb any neighbours either. A fully charged BGA 45 can clear around 200m² of leaves on one charge.

If the area you are clearing is larger, and you need that extra battery capacity and power, the BGA 57 is another option. This leaf blower is part of the AK System of tools and it comes with a removable 36-volt lithium-ion battery that can be used in other tools in the range. It’s one of the great benefits of the BGA 57, because once you have one AK battery you can simply purchase the other tools in the range without having to pay for another – one battery, many uses!

The recommended battery for this leaf blower is the AK 20 which gives you around 22 minutes of working time on a full charge – so you’ll have enough time and power to clear up to 760m² of leaves. But, if you want a little bit of extra run time, you can always opt for the bigger capacity AK 30 battery with the blower – which gives you approximately 27 minutes of blowing time and the ability to clear up to 900m² of leaves!

Like the BGA 45, the BGA 57 is also very quiet, extremely lightweight and easy-to-use. Its streamlined design combined with a three-setting length-adjustable blower tube means it’s a versatile tool for users of all abilities. The economic battery technology also means there are no emissions when you’re using it either and it’s easy to switch on and off – perfect if you’re just doing a quick clear-up.

Safety first

When using any leaf blower, don’t forget to wear the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). You should always make sure your eyes are protected from dirt and debris if you’re blowing it around the garden.

When using a petrol machine, we always recommend that you use ear protection too and we offer an extensive range of ear protectors (including Bluetooth ear protectors, meaning you can listen to music while you work!).

Don’t forget to wear sturdy shoes and snug-fitting clothing, and tie long hair back too, so you don’t get anything caught in the tools.
