Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • Belonging to the line of Stihl blowers, both the BGA 86 and the BGA 60 should have a shared standard of manufacturing and attention to detail.
  • As handheld blowers, both products grant you superior maneuverability wherever you need to work.
  • These models are cordless blowers, harnessing the convenience and affordability of rechargeable batteries as their power source, promoting sustainability and ease of use.

CFM & MPH

  • With matching CFM ratings of 459, these blowers are designed to deliver the same airflow volume, enabling them to clear a comparable amount of dry leaves per minute on hard surfaces.
  • These two products have an identical MPH of 154. By providing you with the same air speeds, they should both be as efficient when blowing leaves on grass or lifting wet leaves and debris (acorns, etc.).

Weight & Noise rating

  • In order to compare the weight of these 2 units, we first need to keep in mind that the Stihl BGA 60 comes with a battery, while the Stihl BGA 86 is a bare tool. Thus, for the comparison to make sense, we must consider the bare tool weight of the BGA 60. Excluding the batteries, the heavier Stihl BGA 86, standing at 6.2 lbs, dwarfs the 5 lbs of the Stihl BGA 60. That said, even when factoring the battery in, the latter remains the lightest unit (5 lbs).
  • The slight disparity in noise rating between the Stihl BGA 86 at 58 dB and the Stihl BGA 60 at 56 dB could have tangible effects. While the operator might experience slightly more noise, nearby neighbors may also perceive a subtle increase in disturbance.

Other features comparison

Vacuum ability

Neither the Stihl BGA 86 nor the Stihl BGA 60 has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.

Autonomy

The Stihl BGA 86's impressive autonomy of 21 mins significantly surpasses the 16 mins of the Stihl BGA 60. This not only means you'll spend less time recharging but also enjoy longer uninterrupted sessions of yard work, enhancing your productivity and efficiency.
