Stiga BL 980 R Backpack Blower

Clear leaves, litter and other debris over large areas the fast, low-effort way with Stiga’s most powerful petrol backpack blower!

Delivering range-topping performance is a large-displacement 75.6cc Stiga two-stroke air-cooled engine that develops an impressive 4.2hp, and which combines an automatic- hoke with a fuel primer to make the ignition process hassle-free.

The Stiga BL 980 R Petrol Backpack Blower ticks all the boxes in terms of operational comfort, with its ergonomic backpack frame, effective vibration-damping measures (VCS) and throttle lock feature all working to limit user fatigue.

Joystick control facilitates precision manoeuvring of the blower tube; a capacious 2.1-litre fuel tank cuts downtime by reducing the number and frequency of refuelling stops.

The BL 980 R Backpack Blower’s high-tech turbine system develops a ferocious 360km/h (100m/s) air velocity.

It should be noted that this Stiga petrol backpack blower is covered by an extended five-year manufacturer’s warranty*.

* Ts & Cs apply – to maintain a valid warranty, the machine must be serviced annually from year two onwards by an authorised dealer

Shipping Info

Shipping Info

If you’re buying a boxed product, we aim to get your order delivered next working day – UK mainland where possible.

If you’re buying a tractor or ride-on mower – a special order item – it could be slightly longer, as we need to PDI the machine.

We do try and van-deliver these machines if we can, as this gives us a chance to demonstrate the product, and to ensure you’re happy and confident with your purchase.

If we can’t van-deliver your machine, as you’re out of our local delivery area, the tractor will be sent on a pallet via a courage company. They will then contact you directly to book a specific day and time that suits you.
