Features

Features

  • BUILT IN THE USA: When you own a STIHL, you hold in your hands the product of hard work, pride and dedication.
  • REDUCED-EMISSION ENGINE TECHNOLOGY - CARING FOR NATURE: The STIHL Inc. “Caring for Nature” seal identifies its powered products that are more environmentally conscious, producing zero or low exhaust emissions. STIHL Inc. defines “low exhaust emissions” as being cleaner than EPA and/or CARB exhaust emission standards.
  • MULTI-FUNCTION CONTROL HANDLE: Having easy access to all of the controls on one comfortable handle makes it easy to complete tasks so the operator’s hand never has to leave the handle.
  • ANTI-VIBRATION SYSTEM: STIHL has a system for minimizing the vibration levels of handheld outdoor power equipment. The STIHL anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.
  • ADJUSTABLE SUPPORT HARNESS: STIHL backpack blowers and sprayers are equipped with an adjustable support harness that distributes weight evenly across the shoulders and back, reducing user fatigue.
  • LOW-NOISE SOUND DAMPER: A noise suppression-muffler in the blower tube on the BR 500 makes this an ideal feature for homeowners or landscapers working in noise-sensitive areas.
  • Adjustable Nozzle is great for stairs and operators of different heights.
  • Protected Spark Plug is protected yet easy to change.
  • Throttle Trigger Lockstop Switch for ease of operation.
  • Purge Pump Primer lets you prime the carburetor without flooding it.
  • Air Filter Cover is easy to remove without tools for fast and easy filter cleaning or replacement.
  • Protected Spark Arrestor Muffler has large baffles which reduce sound level and contains a screen designed to reduce the emission of sparks.
  • High-Tech Polymer Housings are lightweight, withstand greater impact and are corrosion-resistant.
  • Helper Handle for added air direction control and vacuum use.
  • Upright Translucent Fuel Tank allows operator to easily check fuel level before starting work. Upright for easy filling.
  • Long-Life Cylinders give maximum wear life, better cooling and lubrication, and more power output per cubic centimeter of engine displacement.
  • Superior Balance and Design help reduce fatigue and make handling easy.
  • Smooth, Clean Design has no rough edges to snag on clothing or brush.
  • 2-Ring Pistons improve engine efficiency and hold compression longer than 1-ring pistons. Also they transfer heat from the piston to cylinder better, helping engine stay cooler and last longer.
  • Electronic Ignition provides easier starting, smoother running and no periodic maintenance.

Other Features

  • Conversion Kits convert blowers into vacuums. Available on some models
  • IntelliCarb™ Compensating Carburetor measures air on clean side of air filter and adjusts metering diaphragm in carburetor. Keeps RPM level even when filter begins to clog.
  • Anti-Vibration System helps reduce operator fatigue.
  • Easy2Start™ System (E) reduces the strength and effort needed to start the engine.Available on select models.
  • ElastoStart™ Handle has a built-in shock absorber for smoother starting.
  • STIHL handheld blowers have many common features. However, all models may not have all the features shown here. Consult your Dealer for details.
