Overview of the Stihl BR 450

  • Power: The BR 450 gas-powered blower, manufactured by Stihl, is rated for a max air volume of 642 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a max air speed of 219 MPH.
  • Handling: By design, this model isn’t the smallest leaf blower on the market. It’s meant to be carried as a backpack so that the bulk of the unit is out of the way and the user’s hands are free to manipulate the nozzle. 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: The blower is fitted with a 63.3 cc engine. Please note that, because the Stihl BR 450’s engine is a 2-cycle one, it runs on a mixture of oil and gasoline. According to Stihl, the proper fuel mixture ratio for this blower is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: Thanks to its variable speed settings, the Stihl BR 450 allows precise control of the air output.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 77 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: It has an average fuel capacity, with a tank able to hold around 57.5 fl. oz of fuel.
