(VIRGINIA BEACH, Va.) – Designed with professional features and priced to be affordable, the new fuel-efficient STIHL BR 200 backpack blower helps clear leaves, grass clippings or other debris from the yard. Designed for homeowners with larger properties where a handheld blower is inconvenient, the powerful and lightweight BR 200 backpack blower makes yard cleanup a breeze.

The STIHL BR 200 has several user-friendly features including an easy starting procedure: fuel, purge, choke, pull and throttle. A tube-mounted throttle provides ease of use and single-handed operation. The lightweight backpack design means less fatigue for the operator, and an anti-vibration system provides additional comfort.

Its innovative engine design provides fuel efficiency to lower fueling costs, while its large fuel tank gives the BR 200 a longer run-time on a single tank than comparable handheld blowers. Powerful, lightweight, fuel efficient, and easy to use, the STIHL BR 200 is the right choice for the serious DIY homeowner looking for professional results at an affordable price.
