Overview of the Stihl BR 450

  • Power: The Stihl BR 450 is a gas-powered blower with a maximum air volume rating of 642 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 219 MPH.
  • Handling: Like most backpack blowers, this model is technically heavier than a handheld. That being said, it can feel lighter and more comfortable because of the way it is carried, even when used over extended periods of time. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. However, for a gas-powered backpack blower, the Stihl BR 450 is heavier than most, weighing 23.4 lbs.
  • Engine: This blower's engine has a displacement specification of 63.3 cc. As you may or may not know, 2-stroke engines require a mixture of gasoline and oil in order to keep all the moving parts lubricated while fuelling the engine’s internal combustion. The fuel/oil ratio recommended by Stihl for the BR 450 is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: Sometimes you just need a little more power, while other times you may want a little more precision when moving leaves and debris. That’s why the BR 450 features variable speed settings for added control.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 77 dB, the BR 450 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered backpack category.
  • Fuel Tank: It has an average fuel capacity, with a tank able to hold around 57.5 fl. oz of fuel.
