BGE 71



A versatile, two-speed electric handheld blower for high or low speed and noise control.

With its two-speed, handle-mounted switch, the STIHL BGE 71 gives you the power you need, when you need it. Even on maximum speed, this versatile electric leaf blower produces low noise and zero emissions, perfect for use outdoors in quiet residential or commercial office settings. It also features a built-in cord retainer to help keep you connected. And with optional kits, you can convert it into a vacuum and gutter cleaner.
