Get the Stihl BR 800 when you need real blowing power
From bushfires across Australia to multiple fires in California, which experienced its worst fire season in recorded history last year, to devastating fires in the Free State and Eston, wildfires seem to be in the news almost all the time. The world is getting hotter and we need powerful tools we can rely on. It’s time to get a blower that can make a difference when it counts: the Stihl BR 800, the most powerful Stihl backpack blower. The BR 800 has a completely redesigned system and an 80cc engine. Side-start technology means that users don’t have to remove the blower to restart it, which could be vital in an emergency situation.
While any blower, even the BR 800, isn’t a stand-alone fire management tool, this ergonomic machine delivers 1 700m3/h of air volume and a wind velocity of 230kph, so that clearing matter from hard-to-reach places is faster, easier and more efficient than doing it manually.
An added bonus is that it limits user fatigue as it is more comfortable to operate than hand-held tools such as beaters, with an excellent power-to-weight ratio and anti-vibration system.
A high-powered blower is also useful when managing fires. The forced air cools flammable gasses so they are less likely to ignite; the air dilutes the gases and the high speed of air from the blower forces other gases away from the area.
So when you need a trusted partner with impressive power, call on the Stihl BR 800.
Note that blowers do not replace water on a fire line and anyone using a blower as part of a fire management programme should consult their local fire protection agency for correct procedures as well as to confirm what personal protective equipment should be worn. Training of operators is also vital when using any tools or equipment.
