#1 Cleaning your BGA 86
When you finish using the blower, remove the battery and clean using a damp cloth or soft brush.
#2 Storing your BGA 86
Store your BGA 86 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.
#3 Using your BGA 86
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.
#4 Clearing leaves with your BGA 86
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.
#5 Looking after your battery
Don't use a damp or wet battery in your BGA 86 and avoid using them in extreme temperatures (very hot or very cold).
