VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – The Stihl BR 450 and Stihl BR 450 C-EF (63.3 cc) backpack blowers come packed with new features for operator comfort and convenience. In addition, the BR 450 C-EF model is the first professional Stihl blower equipped with an integrated instant electric start, designed to help pros save time and money on the job.

With the push of a button on the throttle of the BR 450 C-EF, the electric start technology allows professionals to start and stop the unit while wearing it on their back. No more idling while walking to the next job and no need to remove the unit to restart, saving time and money. The electric start is powered by an on-board battery that charges while the unit is running. 

Both blowers feature:

Newly designed telescopic tube adjustment that allows the user to quickly adjust the length for a variety of user heights and cleanup applications.

Stihl Easy2Start for a simplified starting procedure and semi-automatic choke offer smooth, easy starts with a reduced chance of flooding.

A toolless control handle allows each user to easily adjust to their most comfortable control handle position without the use of an additional tool.

Comfortable design with large straps, a backpack pad and a soft rubber grip on the throttle come standard for optimal control and support comfortable operation.

“Both units combine performance and comfort to help pros and homeowners complete large property maintenance with less fatigue,” said Stephen Meriam, director of sales at Stihl. “The BR 450 and BR 450 C-EF have powerful blowing forces rivaling our top-rated backpack blowers.”
