Clearing leaves and debris is a thankless task, but you can make the job much easier with a BGA 85 cordless leaf blower.
Quiet and simple to use but powerful enough to get the job done, the speed of the BGA 85 can be easily adjusted with one hand. The rubberised handle also makes it very comfortable to use for longer periods.
The BGA 85 is part of our PRO Cordless range of tools and uses AP-series interchangeable batteries - it is not compatible with the AK-series batteries in the COMPACT Cordless System.
- Run time on recommended AP 300 battery: Up to 24 minutes
The BGA 85 is so easy to use with the multi-function handle that can be used to adjust the speed in a flash.
Safety locking button
The safety locking button on the handle means you can't accidentally start the blower even when the battery is inserted.
Suitable for right or left-handed use
The controls have been set up so the blower can be operated either right or left-handed so it can be used in the perfect position to suit you.
The handle has a soft rubberised finish, so it's comfortable to hold for longer periods and gives you a secure grip in any weather.
Hanging loop for easy storage
The BGA 85 can be easily hung up in the shed or garage, thanks to the hanging loop in the handle.

Tips#1Cleaning your BGA 85
When you have finished using the blower, remove the battery and clean using a damp cloth or soft brush.
#2Storing your BGA 85
Store your BGA 85 in a clean and dry area and keep out of the reach of children at all times. You can hang it on a hook using the hanging loop built into the tool.
#3Using your BGA 85
It takes more power to blow away damp leaves than dry leaves, so it will take you longer to clear a smaller area of wet leaves. If you can, wait until a dry day to clear your garden to make the most of your battery.
#4Clearing leaves with your BGA 85
Instead of just blowing the leaves around the garden, blow them into a corner to keep them contained and make it easier to collect them up.
#5Looking after your battery
Don't use a damp or wet battery in your BGA 85 and avoid using them in extreme temperatures (very hot or very cold). Find out more about looking after your battery on our blog.
