Overview of the Stihl BR 800 C-E MAGNUM®

The Stihl BR 800 C-E MAGNUM® in use

The Stihl BR 800 C-E MAGNUM®

  • Power: The Stihl BR 800 C-E MAGNUM® is a gas-powered leaf blower. It sports a max air speed of 239 MPH and a max air volume rating of 912 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Handling: As this unit is a backpack leaf blower, the majority of the unit is distributed so that the user can operate it with ease for most reasonable periods of use. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. Be aware that, at 25.8 lbs, the Stihl BR 800 C-E MAGNUM® is on the heavier side for gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Engine: This blower is fitted with a 79.9 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: With its variable speed settings, the Stihl BR 800 C-E MAGNUM® allows you to precisely control its air output. In addition, the blower is also equipped with cruise control, with which the user can easily maintain the selected settings.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 78 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: With a capacity of 67.6 fl. oz., this Stihl blower is average when compared to other gas backpack blowers.
  • Easy2Start™: The BR 800 C-E MAGNUM® has the letter “E” in its name, which is Stihl’s indication that it benefits from Stihl’s proprietary Easy2Start™ (also called “ErgoStart”) technology. As the name suggests, this technology makes the starter mechanism more reliable thanks to an additional spring between the crankshaft and the starter rope. Upon pulling the starter rope, the engine will attempt to start regardless of how hard the rope was pulled – even a simple two-finger pull is sufficient to start it. Easy2Start™ allows the BR 800 C-E MAGNUM® to be started with remarkably less effort than most other blowers.
