The new BR 450 C-EF Blower

Tough times ahead for leaves, cuttings and litter, as the new professional blower from STIHL will have them all blown into a heap in next to no time. And it is extremely convenient to use. The STIHL BR 450 C-EF is currently the only professional blower with electric start on the market. The leaf blower can be restarted easily after short breaks in operation without having to remove it from the user's back. It also has a number of other innovative new features to assist landscape gardeners and municipal cleaning contractors in their work.

Just switch off? That's really possible now, with the new STIHL BR 450 C-EF 2 stroke blower. The innovative electric start, an industry-first on professional blowers, enables users to restart the engine after short breaks in operation while wearing it on their back with the aid of a comfortable harness system. So now it's worthwhile switching off, even for a very short time. Fuel consumption is reduced due to STIHL's 2 MIX engine technology. A well thought-out feature: the lithium-ion battery for the electric start recharges automatically during operation. And when outdoor temperatures fall below 0 °C, the machine can be started manually via a starter rope. This procedure is effortless thanks to STIHL Easy2Start, which simplifies the starting routine and halves the effort needed. The BR 450 C-EF is impressive in use; it has a force of 28 newtons, sufficient to keep 2.8 kg of leaves up in the air. It obtains that force from its STIHL 2-MIX engine, which is extremely powerful with high torque over a wide engine speed range.

The most ergonomic way of working
To ensure that work progress is done swiftly and without stress, the new professional blower can be adapted very quickly and accurately to the user's height. The blower tube length is infinitely variable and can easily be adjusted so that the air jet develops its maximum effect at the appropriate distance from the ground. The handle position can also be adjusted for the individual user without using tools. That means an operator can take over a colleague's machine without having to spend time making adjustments to it. Another useful innovation is the infinitely variable fixed throttle that can be set in any desired position by means of a throttle trigger lock. This effectively relieves the strain on the ‘throttle hand' during extended periods of operation. In addition, proven equipment details provide maximum user comfort and ensure minimal stress. The STIHL anti-vibration system reduces the vibrations transmitted to the operator's back, while the broad shoulder straps and large back pad distribute the weight optimally and provide additional cushioning.
