    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.

BR 800 X MAGNUM® is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful The BR800X Magnum has a lot of blowing power. Have been blowing leafs with success, even in hard to reach areas along with small twigs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I need and more Decided on this blower after using one to clean up after a recent storm. Without a doubt, no question, the best blower on the market. Don't waste your time with the other brands, spend the extra money and go with what you can count on. Work smarter not harder, this blower cleared almost an acre of debris in about 35 minutes. Sticks, limbs, pine cones, leaves, gone. I now look for excuses to use this. I have already loaned it out twice. Starts with ease, not too heavy for me and I'm a female, but this is without question the best money spent to make my yard work easier. Love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great blower; one minor issue. I've been very satisfied with other Stihl equipment I have (chainsaw, hedge trimmer, pole pruner, and string trimmer) so had no hesitation in going with a Stihl blower. I selected the 800 series since I wanted to minimize time spent on cleanup in my yard, and be able to help neighbors and friends with their leaf cleanup this fall.I am very satisfied with the performance of this blower; it starts easily, fits comfortably and has more than enough power to move leaves, sticks, pebbles, and small stones. It makes quick work of cleanup in and around the yard.The only negative thing I can say is that the throttle cable tube rubs against my forearm when rotating the control handle, which becomes annoying after a while. I have the control handle positioned as far out as possible which minimizes tube slack. After the last use, I added a loose zip tie to the band at the outer end of the corrugated hose in hopes of keeping the tube restrained. Being able to reverse or adjust the position of the existing tube guide, located between the elbow and the corrugated hose, would likely provide the needed slack. Adding a second tube guide to the outer end of the corrugated hose might also help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Blower I purchased the BR800X in the spring and have been thoroughly impressed with it for a plethora of reasons. First, it is comfortable to wear and carry for long periods of time as it is ergonomically sound and well balanced. Third, its power provides excellent efficiency in moving large amounts of debris such as when leaves are encountered or small amounts of debris such as when you just need to blowing off clippings after mowing the lawn. Fourth, for such a large unit and engine, it is quite fuel efficient. Finally, the concentrated air flow coming from the tube gives you strong directional control of debris and allows you to place it where you want it go. As of now, I can not say that I have found any negative issues with the blower as it starts easily. In the end, this is the best overall blower on the market as of now. I own the Br800's closest competitor, the Echo PB8010 as well. That unit is certainly more powerful than the BR800 and is the blower of choice when doing fall clean ups for us but in terms of overall performance including blowing large or small amounts of debris, scouring the surface for stuck grass, twigs, and branches, or fluffing up the grass during a spring clean up, the BR800 is my choice. It is an exceptional investment for both the commercial operator or the homeowner who values quality equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Blower Acually rather lightweight compared to what I was expecting. Great blower, can clear my whole driveway of debris in 10 seconds or less. Gutters... no problem, dry your car after a wash with the hose... no waterspots. This thing is the cats pajamas. Hoping it will be as reliable as the rest of my Stihl products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One word: Awesome I was using a hand-held blower for years. Did the job, but in the fall it showed its weakness with leaves. Decided to go for broke and got the BR800X. This thing BLOWS (pun not intended). Cuts the amount of time spent clearing the walkways after mowing. Can't attest to leaves yet since I bought it in spring. But the power is amazing, it is by far superior. And it is surprisingly light - I used a BR600 before and this feels lighter than that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing will blow you away The first time I strapped this on my back, I had it pretty loose, and I quickly learned that wasn't a good idea as it almost blew itself off my back. This blower is so quiet and powerful! Im happy my blower can't be heard from a mile away now. Im sure it will last a while beside my array of STIHL products that I use on a daily basis. For a average height, broad shoulder male, it fits well and isn't heavy. The price was hard to swallow but you get what you pay for.
