STIHL Adds a Handheld Blower with Remarkable Air Power to its Lithium-Ion Product Category

STIHL Adds a Handheld Blower with Remarkable Air Power to its Lithium-Ion Product Category

The quiet powerhouse for every application. The NEW BGA 100 is an ideal tool for professional landscapers. This lithium-ion battery-powered blower boasts higher quality and better ergonomics than many other battery products on the market, and delivers performance superior to many gas powered models. The new BGA 100 design shifts the battery weight from the unit to the back or hip with a high-performance cable connecting system. This results in a lighter blower and reduces user fatigue. The BGA 100 features four performance levels through a variable speed throttle trigger delivering an even balance of blowing power and run time. Its rear-mounted air intake allows the blower to be used right or left handed. The quietest and lightest blower in the STIHL line-up, the BGA 100 allows you to clean-up with ease around neighbourhoods, urban areas, or other noise-sensitive zones.

Optimal Control and Performance, Quiet Operation
Designed with the professional landscaper and municipalities in mind, this high-performing, durable blower makes routine lawn maintenance and leaf and debris clean-up quick and easy.

  • Three speeds and a boost function allow you to adjust the output to the task at hand for maximum energy efficiency
  •  Lower sound emission levels mean that you can better hear ambient noises, increasing occupational safety
  • Connected to the battery by an innovative connection cable
  • Lightweight at 2.5 kg (5.5 lb) and comfortable to hold - perfect for relaxed use all day long
  • Thanks to the three adjustable lengths, the blower tube can be set to suit the user's body size - making work easier with no loss in performance

Note: Must be used with battery belt or AR-style backpack battery and required adapters purchased separately. Batteries and chargers must be purchased separately.
