Description

With its powerful, fuel-efficient engine, the BR 600 sets the standard for professional-grade blowers. It produces the highest air volume and velocity of all our backpack blowers, yet features a low-emission engine, making it a great choice in both urban and rural areas. No matter where the job takes you, the BR 600 blower is the ideal choice for heavy-duty cleanup (source: Stihl)

Overview of the Stihl BR 600

  • Power: The Stihl BR 600 is a gas-powered leaf blower. It sports a max air speed of 238 MPH and a max air volume rating of 677 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Handling: By design, this model isn’t the smallest leaf blower on the market. It’s meant to be carried as a backpack so that the bulk of the unit is out of the way and the user’s hands are free to manipulate the nozzle. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. All told, it weighs 21.6 lbs — the Stihl BR 600 is neither the lightest nor the heaviest gas-powered backpack blower on the market.
  • Engine: Its 4-Mix engine boasts a displacement of 64.8 cc. Stihl's 4-Mix engine is a 4-stroke engine that runs with a mixture of oil and gas (50:1 ratio). You can find more details about this technology below.
  • Speed Settings: Thanks to its variable speed settings, the Stihl BR 600 allows precise control of the air output.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 75 dB, the BR 600 is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered backpack category.
  • Fuel Tank: With a capacity of 47.3 fl. oz., this Stihl blower is average when compared to other gas-powered backpack leaf blowers.

The Stihl BR 600's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Stihl BR 600 compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Air exiting the nozzle of this blower can reach 238 MPH, which is quite a bit faster than most gas-powered backpack blowers (the one expelling air at the fastest speed being the Husqvarna 150BT with 251 MPH).
  • It has a maximum air volume output of 677 CFM (cubic feet per minute). With this output rating, the BR 600 is well within average in relation to similar gas-powered backpack leaf blowers (the biggest expelled air volume belonging to the Echo PB-8010H with 1071 CFM).

4-Mix Engine Technology

Stihl's 4-Mix engine combines the advantages of 2-cycle and 4-cycle engines. This award-winning 4-stroke engine runs on a mix of petrol and oil (1:50). For this to happen, the petrol-oil mix enters the cylinder head through a bypass channel in order to offer full lubrication, which avoids the need for parts like an oil pump, sump or tank (which are compulsory for traditional 4-stroke engines). Therefore, there is no oil servicing to do (easy maintenance), the leaf blower is lighter (due to fewer parts) and its overall noise is lower. Additionally, all 4-MIX engines are fitted with a system that considerably reduces the effort needed to pull the starter rope.

      The engine is easy starting, runs smoothly and it has the power to move leaves, acorns, sticks. I can clear a forest path in the fall at a normal walking speed. That’s 2-3 inches of material blown clear while walking along the trail.

      + PROS: great power to weight ratio, easy start, easy to handle.
      - CONS: No hip belt for the pack.
