We are going to tell our stihl dealer to hold one for use whenever they show up.

Correction, went to the dealership and they had 2 in stock so he was wondering when I'd be back in... 😅 I'll post pics later.

A brand spanking new BR800 C-E MAGNUM stihl leaf blower went into the field over the weekend. The leaves and rocks tremble under the power of this darn thing.

How do you like the harness set up?

When I checked out the 800, it looks like they have made some substantial enhancements with the waist support belt. I imagine the weight is much more evenly distributed. Love my 550 which I added a chest clip to a number of years ago. Made a big difference.
Really want to upgrade to the 800.:p

We are backpackers and its harness setup was quite nice and includes a chest strap (you must have see it in pics). The backpack was lighter in weight than I expected. It was so powerful the gyroscopic effect would twist me a bit when I throotled it up and I had to lean forward to counter its jet.
