One of the most powerful blowers in the STIHL range, the STIHL BR 700 X backpack blower delivers 34 newtons of blowing force. Its fixed-length tube is a half-pound lighter than the STIHL BR 700 backpack blower and features a more flexible pleated connecting hose, reducing fatigue and increasing the speed of cleanups by up to 20%. The BR 700 X delivers ultimate power and comfort to tackle tough jobs and large property maintenance.

"Users can swivel the tube quickly, leading to a fast-walking speed, helping cover large surface areas in less time," said Thomas Techow, STIHL Inc. product manager. "The BR 700 X is packed with professional features making it an excellent choice on any jobsite."

Powerful Features Tackle Tough Debris

The new blower can handle heavy debris cleanup and year-round use with its low-emission, fuel-efficient engine and low cost of operation. Its optimal power-to-weight ratio makes it comfortable to use during big jobs that take more time.

This high output professional blower features:

A simplified starting procedure and semi-automatic choke offers smooth, easy starts with a reduced chance of flooding.

A one-touch stop switch allows the user to turn off the engine with the simple press of a button. When the engine is off, the one-touch stop switch automatically returns the blower to the start position, saving users time and reducing the chance of flooding the engine when restarting.

The control handle adjusts without the need of tools to the operator's most comfortable position.

Two blower tube lengths allow the user to quickly adjust the length for a variety of user heights and cleanup applications.

Standard comfort elements include an adjustable support harness, rubberized handle grips, anti-vibration system, extra-wide straps and backpack pad.
