  • Purge Pump Primer
    The purge pump primer feature enables the user to prime the carburetor with fuel, enabling easier starting. The purge pump primer is designed in a way that the operator cannot flood the machine by priming the carburetor too many times. Flooding the engine is still possible if the choke is not removed after the engine fires.
  • Throttle Trigger Lock with Built-In Momentary Stop Switch
    The built-in stop switch allows the user to turn off the engine with a simple press of the button or lever. When the engine is off, the throttle lock automatically returns to the “start” setting. Your power tool will be ready to be started when you’re ready to get back to work.
  • Soft grip handle
    The soft grip handle provides added comfort.

BR 700 X is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why did i wait? After years of working with two hand held blowers i asked for a back pack blower for my birthday. Yesterday i was given a 700. This morning after blowing, leaves, sticks, branches, small children, a smart car and a mobile home out of my way i kick myself for not getting one sooner. This thing really moves some air. As a former STIHL QA and knowing what all goes into these things, i am glad that i now have added one of these to my collection of STHIL products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real powerhouse Has the volume of two handhelds-cut my time considerably rounding up leaves and easy to start-only complaint would be the weight but if made lighter it would not be as well made

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a beast!!! My boys and I mow 8 acres every week on our property in Central Iowa, I have been hem hawing about what to do for a blower, on the farm in the past we have used the hand held style and that gets tiring. This is outstanding, it moves everything in its way, wet or dry. If you need a way to move, leaves, grass, corn husks, shelled corn, soybean stalks/dust, soybeans, sand, snow and clean equipment. You want this blower!!! The movement in the blower arm vs the 700 is noticeable and the ½ lb. is worth it there alone. I cannot say enough good things and as with all things Stihl you get power, reliability and ease of use!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but worth it Great for leaves and light snow up to 4 or 5 inches. Has a summer/winter switch. No complaints but if I had to make one it does like gas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I should have bought this years ago! I have struggled with fall leaves in my yard for years. I picked up this blower last fall and wow! It makes short work of what used to be a long and tedious chore. This blower moves a wall of leaves effortlessly.
