Professional backpack blower for cleaning large areas. Incredibly quiet, making it ideal for use in low-noise areas. Excellent anti-vibration system and ergonomic carrying frame. Innovative 4-mix engine for a more pleasant sound, low fuel consumption and low emissions
Built-in sound damper
The BR 500 with built-in sound damper is built for use in noise-sensitive areas. The measured noise reduction for the human ear is up to 59% compared to the previous model** Despite the relatively low noise emission, the BR 500 is a strong, reliable helper with high performance. **Measured according to EN-ISO22868.
STIHL 4-MIX engine
You can always rely on STIHL to keep setting new benchmarks this time with 4-stroke mixed lubrication technology. The STIHL 4-MIX engine, which runs on a fuel-oil mix just like a 2-stroke, offers the benefits without the compromises of 4-stroke power. STIHL 4-MIX engine technology provides fast acceleration, more power, added torque, lower noise, reduced emissions and increased fuel efficiency to complete jobs quickly, quietly and more easily.
Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in the hands and arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine’s engine are dampened which significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
Multi-function control handle
Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator’s hand never leaves the handle.
Evenly distributes the weight between the user’s shoulders, back, hips and upper thighs. With soft padding for increased comfort during prolonged use and when working on large areas.
The decompression valve allows some of the compression pressure in the cylinder to escape, so less force on the starter rope is needed.
