All STIHL Battery powered products feature a retaining latch that prevents the unit from unintentional starts when the battery is inserted.

With the multi-function handle, all of the blower’s controls can be adjusted with one hand, allowing simple and reliable operation for both right and left-handed users. In addition, the handle’s control lever allows the user to easily adjust the engine speed.

Lightweight and compact, STIHL electric motors require minimal maintenance and feature low noise levels and reduced vibration.

The two-stage axial blower operates like a fan to maximize the volume of high-speed air, delivering excellent blowing performance.

With the control lever, the engine speed can be continuously adjusted to regulate airflow. When the lever is released, the engine stops.

This handle design provides a secure and comfortable grip.
