More leaves to go blowin in the wind

THE BG75 is Stihls latest leaf blower unit. The pedestrian-operated machine weighs 4.3kg (9.5lb).

Powered by a 24.5cc two-stroke petrol engine, the BG75 is said to be capable of delivering a wind speed of 60m/sec (130mph) – the use of an attachment kit enables the unit to be used as a vacuum.

An operating noise level of 89dB(A) and 0.5-litre fuel tank capacity completes the specification of the £235 BG75. (0800-137574).
