Overview of the Stihl BR 700 X

  • Power: The BR 700 X, built by Stihl, is a gas-powered leaf blower capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 901 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Its air speed is rated at 193 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 700 X is heavier than most, weighing 23 lbs.
  • Engine: Its 4-Mix engine boasts a displacement of 64.8 cc. Stihl's 4-Mix engine is a 4-stroke engine that runs with a mixture of oil and gas (50:1 ratio). You can find more details about this technology below.
  • 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 700 X features variable speed settings for added control.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 75 dB, the BR 700 X is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered backpack category.
  • Fuel Tank: Its tank can hold 47.3 fl. oz., so it falls squarely in the average in terms of fuel capacity.

4-Mix Engine Technology

Stihl's 4-Mix engine combines the advantages of 2-cycle and 4-cycle engines. This award-winning 4-stroke engine runs on a mix of petrol and oil (1:50). For this to happen, the petrol-oil mix enters the cylinder head through a bypass channel in order to offer full lubrication, which avoids the need for parts like an oil pump, sump or tank (which are compulsory for traditional 4-stroke engines). Therefore, there is no oil servicing to do (easy maintenance), the leaf blower is lighter (due to fewer parts) and its overall noise is lower. Additionally, all 4-MIX engines are fitted with a system that considerably reduces the effort needed to pull the starter rope.

The bottom line

STRENGTHS:
  • 4-Mix Engine
  • High CFM (901 CFM)
AVERAGE SPECS:
  • Decent tank (47.3 fl. oz.)
  • Acceptable noise (75 dB)
WEAKNESSES:
  • Quite heavy (23 lbs)
  • Low MPH (193 MPH)
