STIHL BR 500 Backpack Blower

The STIHL BR 500 is a professional backpack blower designed for clearing larger areas. It is incredibly quiet thus making it ideal for use in low-noise areas. The BR 500 features an excellent anti-vibration system and ergonomic carrying frame. It is powered by an innovative 4-MIX engine for a more pleasant sound, low fuel consumption and low emissions.


  • STIHL 4-MIX Engine - The STIHL 4-MIX engine is an engine you can always rely on. STIHL keep setting 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.
  • Built-in Sound Damper - The BR 500 features a built-in sound damper for use in built-up areas. The measured noise reduction for the human ear is up to 59% compared to the previous model. Despite relatively low noise emissions, the BR 500 is a strong, reliable helper with high performance. Measured according to EN-ISO22868.
  • Anti-vibration system - Intense vibration at the handles of power tools can lead to long-term effects on blood vessels in both the hands and the arms. STIHL has therefore developed an effective anti-vibration system whereby the oscillations from the machine's engine are damped. This significantly reduces vibrations at the handles.
  • Multi-function Control Handle - Easy, comfortable thumb-operated control means the operator's hand never leaves the handle.
  • Ergonomic Harness - 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.
