BR 450 C-EF

The world's only professional backpack blower with electric start.

BR 450 C-EF
BR 450 C-EF is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 45.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful I am a homeowner that previously owned a BR500 which was stolen. I purchased the the BR450 C-EF as a replacement and have been happy with its performance and the electric start function. It has taken me a little time to get used to the starting sequence since this thing actually the easy start system on it but most times I have just used the electric start to fire it up. About 3 cycles of the starter and its running. It's getting close to time for all the leave to start falling so I will be using it for that. Up until this point I have only used it to blow off the driveway after mowing and it of course does that with no issues. Sips gas too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Padding problems As others viewers have stated that the power and electric start are remarkable. I've only had this machine for a WEEK and the performance is fantastic *EXCEPT* the harness padding. No matter how well the machine performs, if I can't comfortably shoulder it then it's no good to me for long jobs.Sad to say, but I might be taking this back all because of a strap issue. Too bad Stihl might lose customers purchasing this because of bad padding.If it only had the BR 700 harness, I'd keep it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use with true Stihl Power! I love this leaf blower! Very easy to use and the electric restart is well worth the additional $100. Just think, when you want to restart it, you don't have to take it off your back and pull the cord again! Do yourself a favor and buy one of these if you want to tackle a leaf-filled yard, roof, or rain gutter like a pro. Stihl Power!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this, so glad I bought it! So glad I bought this, I can do my whole property in under an hour, where my old electric blower would take me all day! I'm a 62 year old widow and I love that electric start on it! I have just under an acre of land with lots of trees! This is going to make fall and spring clean up a breeze! Wish I had bought it sooner,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent power, easy to start I mostly use to blow sidewalks off and it does a great job. Electric start is very convenient. My wife loves not having to take off to restart. Feels just as powerful as br600!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First BR 450 C-EF the boss is trying it out As far as power goes, it tops a BR 600. It does have bit of an annoying knocking in the motor or vibration. The push button start feature has not given any trouble once it is warm. You might want to first crank in the morning, but once it's warm starts right up. Frequently you have to stop to talk to people and it's nice to push the button to start it up. Like I said earlier it appears to have more blowing force than a BR 600. Noticed this in blowing off parking lots, used the BR 600 and BR 450, the 450 did the job faster.
