Stihl says its BR 450 and BR 450 C-EF backpack blowers are packed with new features to ensure operator comfort and convenience, as well as improvements that make the machines more efficient on the jobsite.
For example, the BR 450 C-EF model is the first professional Stihl blower equipped with an integrated instant electric start, designed to help professional landscapers save time and money on the job.
With the push of a button on the throttle of the BR 450 C-EF, the electric start technology allows users to start and stop the unit while wearing it on their back. No more idling while walking to the next job. Nor is there any need to remove the unit to restart.
The electric start is powered by an on-board battery that charges while the unit is running.
Stihl says the blowers have the following “user-friendly design elements”:
Newly designed telescopic tube adjustment that allows the user to quickly adjust the length for a variety of user heights and cleanup applications.
