Features

Common Features

  • ADJUSTABLE NOZZLE: Great for stairs and operators of different heights.
  • PROTECTED SPARK PLUG: Protected yet easy to change.
  • THROTTLE TRIGGER LOCKSTOP SWITCH: For ease of operation.
  • PURGE PUMP PRIMER: Lets you prime the carburetor without flooding it.
  • AIR FILTER COVER: Easy to remove without tools for fast and easy filter cleaning or replacement.
  • PROTECTED SPARK ARRESTOR MUFFLER: Large baffles which reduce sound level and contains a screen designed to reduce the emission of sparks.
  • HIGH-TECH POLYMER HOUSINGS: Lightweight, withstand greater impact and are corrosion-resistant.
  • HELPER HANDLE: For added air direction control and vacuum use.
  • UPRIGHT TRANSLUCENT FUEL TANK: Allows operator to easily check fuel level before starting work. Upright for easy filling.
  • LONG-LIFE CYLINDERS: Give maximum wear life, better cooling and lubrication, and more power output per cubic centimeter of engine displacement.
  • SUPERIOR BALANCE AND DESIGN: Help reduce fatigue and make handling easy.
  • SMOOTH, CLEAN DESIGN: Has no rough edges to snag on clothing or brush.
  • 2-RING PISTONS: Improve engine efficiency and hold compression longer than 1-ring pistons. Also they transfer heat from the piston to cylinder better, helping engine stay cooler and last longer.
  • ELECTRONIC IGNITION: Provides easier starting, smoother running and no periodic maintenance.
  • *STIHL handheld blowers have many common features. However, all models may not have all the features shown here. Consult your Dealer for details.

Model Features

  • BUILT IN THE USA: A majority of STIHL gasoline-powered units sold in the United States are built in the United States from domestic and foreign parts and components.
  • ANTI-VIBRATION SYSTEM: STIHL has a system for minimizing the vibration levels of handheld outdoor power equipment. The STIHL anti-vibration system helps reduce operator fatigue and provides a more comfortable working experience.
  • THROTTLE TRIGGER LOCK WITH BUILT-IN MOMENTARY STOP SWITCH: The built-in stop switch allows the user to turn off the engine with a simple press of the button or lever. When the engine is off, the throttle lock automatically returns to the “start” setting. Your power tool will be ready to be started when you’re ready to get back to work.
  • PURGE PUMP PRIMER: The purge pump primer feature enables the user to prime the carburetor with fuel, enabling easier starting. The purge pump primer is designed in a way that the operator cannot flood the machine by priming the carburetor too many times. Flooding the engine is still possible if the choke is not removed after the engine fires.
  • SOFT GRIP HANDLE: This handle design provides a secure and comfortable grip.
  • HD2 AIR FILTER: The HD2 air filter on this unit is washable, providing extremely long filter life and lowering maintenance costs. The large surface area allows for longer run times between cleanings and high performance even while operating in dusty and dry conditions. Overall, the HD2 air filter provides better protection of the engine compared to standard air filters.
