Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the Stihl BG 50 and the Hitachi RB24EAP do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary.
  • These two products are handheld blowers and therefore provide you with superior mobility.
  • Both products are gas-powered blowers - gas is a reliable power source which you can refill in a matter of seconds.

CFM & MPH

  • The Hitachi RB24EAP with a CFM of 441 slightly exceeds the 412 CFM of the Stihl BG 50. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former is able to move more leaves per minute.
  • The Hitachi RB24EAP with an MPH of 170 slightly exceeds the 159 MPH of the Stihl BG 50. Thus, in comparison, the former expels air at a slightly higher speed, and should do a better job at blowing leaves on grass or lifting wet leaves and debris (acorns, etc.).

Weight & Noise rating

  • The weight of the Hitachi RB24EAP, which is 8.6 lbs, slightly exceeds the 7.9 lbs of the Stihl BG 50, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • The Hitachi RB24EAP produces 87 dB, which significantly outmatches the 70 dB of the Stihl BG 50, and thus will be a lot louder than the latter.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Hitachi RB24EAP's fuel tank has a volume of 17.6 fl.oz., exceeding the 14.5 fl.oz. of the Stihl BG 50. Therefore, you may store more fuel in the device and theoretically operate it longer, if their engines are equally demanding.
  • When compared, the Hitachi RB24EAP's engine displacement at 23.9 cc is lesser than the 27.2 cc of the Stihl BG 50. Therefore, the second may consume more fuel per stroke and is in turn be more powerful.
  • Each of these leaf blowers features a 2-cycle engine. Thus, they both require you to have an oil/fuel mix to operate.

Other features comparison

Vacuum ability

Neither the Hitachi RB24EAP nor the Stihl BG 50 has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
