    Default Stihl vs Ego Battery Blower

    Anyone tried the Stihl and the Ego battery blowers?
    Which one blows the best? Which one is the best balanced?
    Cheers

    I have had the Ego for 2yrs now.
    I love it, particularly the convenience.
    It is the most powerful h/held on the market(petrol included) ... AFAIK.
    For resi work its great, if you're doing commercial sized jobs, get a big petrol backpack.
    Its small, light weight, well balanced, powerful & as I said b4, super convenient.
    Only downside is battery run time, which can be over come with a few batteries & proper battery management.

    Stihl bga 100 is nearly as powerful but, you need to attach a cord & wear a battery.
    Stihl bga 85 is a hair dryer.
    Stihl is way more expensive, more than double.
    I wouldn't mind buying the bga100 as I have spare stihl batteries but, I don't want to wear the battery.

    Cheers Fred.

    Bga100 is brilliant but never use do to having cord
    Bga85 is convenient if you are already in the Stihl system for light duties
    It's been out since 2012 so hopefully they'll release any update soon
