The Stihl BR 700's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Stihl BR 700 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Maxing out at 197 MPH, this blower ranks on the lower end in terms of air speed for gas-powered backpack blowers. For the fastest air speed in this category, you may want to consider the Husqvarna 150BT, which can expell air at a velocity that can reach 270 MPH.
  • The Stihl BR 700 is a powerhouse, boasting an airflow capacity of 912 CFM (Cubic Foot per Minute), firmly establishing itself among the most potent gas-powered backpack blowers. If air volume is important to you, the RedMax EBZ9000RH, with 1245 CFM, could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other gas backpack blowers, the Stihl BR 700 is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its kind, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.

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 gasoline and oil (1:50). For this to happen, the gasoline-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

  • 4-Mix Engine
  • High CFM (912 CFM)

  • Decent tank (47.3 fl. oz.)
