    looking for any info on specs or release date of Stihl BR800. Planning on purchasing 2X blowers soon and looks like Echo will be avail. first. My dealer will not have but 45 min drive and I can get Nov apparently guaranteed.

    Only info I got is from dealer that Stihl will outdo the Echo but suspect this info may be result of fact that he won’t be getting the Echo until Spring.

    Why don't you take one for the team and by both and let us know in a video which is better?

    Hoping someone else does that for me before it’s time to put down $$$$

    Seems to be a dearth of information on the Stihl.

    80cc sounds promising. Stihl likely sick of being at bottom of power game for over 15 years now.

    Ok I got a little info on the br800. It will be available at select dealers sometime in September. The cfm will be a few clicks over 900cfm and the miles per hour is suppose to be almost 240mph.

    Unless the cfm is closer to 1k than 900, it sounds like an 8010 w/a tip.
