The Stihl BGA 57 cordless leaf blower is part of the Stihl AK system. That means if you already own a Stihl AK battery then your battery and charger will already fit this machine.
The cordless blower is lightweight and well balanced as well as being so easy to use. It has an extendable blower tube that can be adjusted dependant on your height. The powerful blowing force means that you can easily clear away debris, such as leaves, twigs and dirt, from your garden.
The BGA 57 replaces the BGA 56 as part of the AK System of tools, which includes a grass trimmer, hedge trimmer, chainsaws and lawn mowers and uses interchangeable batteries that can be swapped between tools in the range.
- Run time with AK 20 battery: up to 22 min
- Run time with AK 30 battery: up to 30 min
Other products in the Stihl AK system include the Stihl FSA 57 Cordless Strimmer (AK System) , the Stihl HSA 56 Cordless Hedge Trimmer (AK System) , the Stihl MSA 140 C-B Cordless Chainsaw (AK System) and the Stihl HLA 56 Long Reach Cordless Hedge Trimmer (36v Domestic)
Stihl BGA 57 Features
The STIHL Compact Cordless System tools are so quiet you don’t even need to wear ear protection.
EXTENDABLE BLOWER TUBE
The length of the blower tube can be easily adjusted to suit your height, so you have control over the direction of the blowing force.
SUITABLE FOR RIGHT OR LEFT-HANDED USE
All of the controls and the safety locking lever are within easy reach on the handle, which makes it easy for you to use whether you are right or left-handed.
NEUTRAL LOCKING POSITION
There are two positions for the battery – in the first neutral position, the battery is secured in the machine but is not connected to the contacts. This means you can carry the battery around easily without accidentally starting the blower. In the second position, the battery is fully pushed in and you can easily start the tool.
The handle has a soft finish, so it’s comfortable to hold, even when you’re using it for longer, and provides a secure grip no matter what the weather.
The BGA 57 can be easily hung up in the shed or garage, thanks to the eyelet in the handle

QHOW LONG DOES THE BATTERY LAST?
A: The recommended AK 20 battery will last up to 22 minutes or enough time to clear an area up to 760m², depending on what you are clearing.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CHARGE?
A: To fully charge an AK 20 battery using the AL 101 charger, it takes 180 minutes, but you can charge it up to 80% in 135 minutes.
WHAT SIZE GARDEN WILL IT MAINTAIN?
A: The BGA 57 leaf blower is great for clearing medium to large gardens.
WHAT BATTERY DOES IT USE?
A: The blower is powered by an interchangeable 36V Lithium-Ion battery.
ARE THE BATTERIES INTERCHANGEABLE?
A: Yes, all of the tools in the AK System use the same style of battery. There are three different batteries in the range, which all have different capacities. For the BGA 57, we recommend the AK 20 battery, and it is designed to be perfectly balanced with this battery, but you can also use the higher capacity AK 30 battery in this tool. We don’t recommend using the AK 10 as the BGA 57 won’t run for as long with this smaller battery.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR WHEN USING THIS BLOWER?
A: We recommend that you wear snug-fitting clothes, goggles, gloves and sturdy boots or shoes, and tie back long hair.
