The Stihl BR 700

  • Power: The Stihl BR 700 is a gas-powered blower with a maximum air volume rating of 912 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 197 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. All told, it weighs 23.4 lbs — the Stihl BR 700 is neither the lightest nor the heaviest gas-powered backpack blower on the market.
  • Engine: This blower is fitted with a 64.8 cc 4-Mix engine. 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: Thanks to its variable speed settings, the Stihl BR 700 allows precise control of the air output.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 75 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: Its tank can hold 47.3 fl. oz., so it falls squarely in the average in terms of fuel capacity.
