Our biggest, baddest and most powerful backpack blower.

Product Description

To tackle large properties and heavy debris, there is nothing like the clean-up power of the BR 800 C-E MAGNUM®. Built in America*, the most powerful backpack blower in the STIHL line offers maximum blowing force as well as optimal comfort.

  • 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 5.0 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Power but.... the end of this top of the line blower dose not offer any attachments or ways to use in a different capacity like the smaller blowers do. For example if i coud purchase and extension for my eves that would make sense, because i live in a wooded area I need the power for heave leaves but no options for my eves on my house like the smaller versions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite tool Stihl has earned my respect. I own about 20 piece of Stihl equipment and this is hands down my favorite. I own a BR700 blower and stalked my dealer until they got one of these and I bought the first one the day it came in. Perhaps a little obsessed, but I know the quality of their products, so I assumed this would be the same.This blower is comfortable, with good padded straps. I wasn't a fan of the chest and belly straps, as I thought they were in the way, and for the most part they are. However, if you're using for an extended period of time they really change the game and distribute the weight, so in those cases I do use them.The side start is fantastic. I tormented over getting the blower with side start because I thought its so new there would be problems. For the most part, it fires up on the first 3 pulls every time. It takes some getting use to but now that I am, its fantastic. I have zero negatives on this blower. If I were to offer some constructive criticism, it would be: The hanging hook hole could be slightly larger, or the handle on the back like the BR700. I would also like to see a gutter tube kit for this model similar to the hand blowers. Those are just extras id like to see. IF you get this blower, you'll be thrilled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Could almost lift you off the ground My wife and I are volunteer sawyers on the blue ridge parkway in the Roanoke,Va area. Last November we had a really bad ice and wind storm that knocked the top 20-30 feet off the tops of 600 or so trees. Parkway was closed for months. After bucking up and chipping all the debris I broke out the BR 800 C-E backpack blower to mop up twigs and packed leaves and mud on roadway. Unbelievable how much power this thing has,would easily blow 3 inch thick compressed leaves right off the asphalt. Lot faster than the shovel the other crew was using. If you want the best backpack blower money can buy,here it is!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy start, side pull handle, harness straps, and so much power I purchased this roughly 2 weeks ago and I was originally looking to purchase the br430. But after talking with the dealer about the other models, I decided to bite the bullet and purchase this monster. Very glad I did. The power and the velocity is awesome. The weight really isn't noticable due to the harness system. I love the fact that I can start it while on my back, of course after it has been running for a while. I think that is probably one of the better features this has. The short pull to start is great. I don't typically like doing fall cleanups, but with this, I think it will be an added bonus and a wise investment for my business. Whether it be for a home owner or for commercial use, the value and the time saved is well worth the money. My motto, go big or stay home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best backpack blower This blower is so comfortable with the waist straps and the redesigned mounting points as well as the side start feature and the adjustable blower tube. I could go on and on about how awesome this blower is but you won’t know how nice it is until you try it for yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leaf Boss I have owned several different leaf blowers but they could not hold up to the amount of leaves I have to tend to with my yard. I saw the BR 800 with the high wind speeds and figured I would give it a shot, since I live is a heavily wooded area that it takes a while for leaves to dry. With that being said, wet leaves, dry leave and even small branches and twigs did not stand a chance against the power of this blower. It’s taken a job of several days of taking and blowing leaves to just a few hours of blowing leaves. I cleared out a 20’x20’ area of 6-8 inches of leaves out in a matter of minutes. If moving a loathe amount of leaves is what you need then this is the blower for you.
