  • STIHL Easy2Start™
    The STIHL Easy2Start™ system makes starting STIHL® outdoor power tools almost effortless, eliminating the need for a strong pull of the starting cord. This advanced starting system is designed to make starting STIHL® products fast and easy. The specific system may vary by model, but in each case, a quick pull overcomes the engine’s compression to minimize the strength and effort required to start. Available on selected products.
  • Anti-Vibration System
    The STIHL anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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.

BR 800 C-E MAGNUM® is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No replacement for displacement! I got this for home use. I own an acre of land, half with huge trees, a long driveway (about 75 yards) and this is the blower I needed!I own a Husqvarna 150, and it’s nice, but this thing is a monster!!!! Just the nozzle is like 3x larger than my husky, and the power is ridiculous! When I started using it, it would twist me around due to the “rotational” force, or the combination of both the engine power and velocity of the air... not sure- but I like it! It’s so powerful that the first few times i would feel my knees sore from trying to counter rotate... the leaves(and stones, sticks, bricks or whatever) don’t stand a chance. It’s the perfect tool for my situation- bunch of leaves to push quite a distance, for about 5-6 weeks in the fall. I love it, wish would’ve purchased the 800 a long time ago- it’s my first Stihl, and I’m very impressed, used it about twice a week for about a month now and it didn’t once cross my mind to get the old one out... No way!The side start is nice too, easy to start, never had to pull more than 3-5 times when cold, first pull every time when hot. Should turn it off more often when picking toys and trash while blowing leaves- just not used to the option yet, but I would certainly recommend getting it( side start).Built very nice, very smooth, I would say it used about the same amount of gas, maybe just a hair more( if more - I didn’t notice, maybe because it takes a tank of gas on either one to clean my yard). Got my warranty doubled by purchasing some Stihl oil, now I got 4 years, but don’t think I will need it- it feels really well built. It’s cool that it has the “auto -choke”, just crank it, and whenever you press the throttle- the choke resets, never ran rough or sputtering or anything else.Was able to get 10% off too, I’m super happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it really moves leaves just picked up my br800c and it is all they say about it, lots of power and it really moves leaves, even wet ones that have been their for a while. It is a heavy bulky unit but all of the large back pack blowers are. I am 72 and I can handle it . May be in a few years I will need stihl to make me some training wheels, but I am ok for now. My old handheld blower was a bg86c but this new blower cuts the time in half our maybe even less for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Typical Excellent Stihl Quality Everything you expect. If you are going to buy a blower - additional power equals less time spent on the job so additional power is worth it. Starts easy and works well and as expected. They should include a chest strap. I made one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It needs more work This blower is awesome when it works but sometimes you have a problem with the idle, sometimes dies it self and the tube last only for couple weeks and starts to have holes in the curves area, I bought 3 of them and yes something happen to all 3

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 25% of the time I live on 1/3 of an acre lot with 20 trees. I love fall but not the 4 hours to remove the leaves. I spoke with Eric at AMC and he knew the exact solution. For the past 3 years I have been using the Stihl 86 blower - it works great; still a champ... not quite enough power I need each fall. Eric recommenced the new 800 CE backpack blower after telling him about my property and showing the mounds of leaves being collected weekly. After using on just the first day - it took me an hour for the whole property vs the 4 I’ve been used to. Awesome machine, light, comfortable to wear and easy to start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BR 800 C-E THE BEST! This thing is great. I wanted the telescoping wand so I went with the 800 CE instead of the 800 X and come to find this also has the side pull start. It uses very little tension to pull then it kinda recoils on itself to start the engine. Once its warmed up the side start works flawless. I have a very long driveway with leaves and acorns and sticks. The 800 CE moves it all. I haven't even opened it up fully on a leaf covered lawn yet cause I am still breaking it in. Along with the telescoping wand and side pull start it also has shoulder straps and hip buckle and chest buckle to keep it in place on your back. As a home owner I wanted to buy only one blower, with reputation, that can do it all and save me time.
