The Stihl BGA 60's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Stihl BGA 60 compare with handheld leaf blowers of similar voltage (between 36 and 48V).

  • It can push air from the nozzle at 154 MPH, which puts it ahead of its class in terms of air speed for battery-operated handheld blowers between 36 and 48V. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Makita XBU01PT and its 208 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • Regarding its air volume, the airflow of the Stihl BGA 60 can reach 459 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute), which is on par with other cordless handheld blowers with a comparable voltage. If air volume is important to you, the Husqvarna 350iB, with 800 CFM, could be in your good books.
  • Autonomy-wise, with up to 16 minutes of autonomy on a full charge, the BGA 60 is on the low end when compared with other cordless handheld units of similar voltage. To enjoy the best possible autonomy in this category, you could have a look at the Makita CBU01Z which offers up to 300 minutes of runtime.
