The new BR800 is Stihl's most powerful backpack blower to date. Designed with both power and comfort in mind, this machine is a fantastic choice for local authorities, landscapers and contractors - with enough strength to take on the toughest jobs with ease.
Blowing force of the machine is 41N (the BR700 is 35N) making it an excellent tool for clearing heavy, wet leaves in the Autumn and Winter months.
Excellent power-to-weight ratio makes the BR800 easy to operate. Thanks to the ergonomic carrying system (S-shaped shoulder strap, chest strap and hip belt) it is comfortable to use throughout the day. The strain reducing blower tube makes it easy to handle too. A handy eyelet is located in the back plate which allows you to hand the blower up for storage.
Starting the machine is simple and east to do thanks to the side-start pull cord. The blower can be easily restarted when taking a break from work with a firm pull of the cord. And of course it can be stopped using the switch on the handle so there's no need to remove the machine if you're taking a break or wanting to move from area to area. The 4-mix engine of the machine means lower fuel consumption and an increase in run time - meaning more time can be spent working.
The length of the blower tube and position of the handle can be adjusted quickly without the need for tools. The blower tube is east to swivel and has a wide blowing range, lowering the strain felt when working. It also features the Stihl Anti-vibration System to reduce the vibration felt on your back.
STIHL 4-MIX® engine - You can always rely on STIHL to keep setting new benchmarks this time with 4-stroke mixed lubrication technology. The STIHL 4-MIX® engine, which runs on a fuel-oil mix just like a 2-stroke, offers the benefits without the compromises of 4-stroke power. STIHL 4-MIX® engine technology provides fast acceleration, more power, added torque, lower noise, reduced emissions and increased fuel efficiency to complete jobs quickly, quietly and more easily.
Anti-vibration system - Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
Multi Function Control Handle - STIHL backpack blowers and sprayers are equipped with an adjustable support harness that distributes weight evenly across the shoulders and back, reducing user fatigue.
Adjustable Support Harness - The handle position can be quickly adjusted without tools to suit the operator.
Adjustable blowing tube - The blowing tube can be easily adjusted, without tools, to suit individual body sizes or individual cleaning task. This allows for optimum blowing force and control at all times.
Side-mounted pull-cord - Removes the need to take the backpack blower off to restart, simply pull the starter on the left hadn side and you're ready to work.
