Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • Given that the Stihl BG 50 and the Hitachi RB24EAP come from distinct manufacturers, their construction and technological features may differ.
  • As handheld blowers, both products grant you superior maneuverability wherever you need to work.
  • gas-powered blowers, both products offer a dependable power source that can be refilled quickly, allowing you the mobility to cover extensive outdoor spaces without interruption.

CFM & MPH

  • The Hitachi RB24EAP boasts a slightly higher CFM rating of 441 compared to the Stihl BG 50 (412 CFM), suggesting it may have a slight advantage in leaf-moving power.
  • 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

  • Weighing 8.6 lbs, the Hitachi RB24EAP tips the scales slightly above the 7.9 lbs of the Stihl BG 50, implying that while it's marginally heavier, users may still experience a touch more convenience in operation.
  • The Hitachi RB24EAP emits a noise level of 87 dB, significantly louder than the 70 dB of the Stihl BG 50. This difference means that the latter will provide a much quieter experience for you and be less likely to disturb your neighbors.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Hitachi RB24EAP boasts a larger fuel tank capacity, with 17.6 fl.oz., surpassing the 14.5 fl.oz. of the Stihl BG 50. Consequently, you can store more fuel, potentially extending operational time, assuming similar engine fuel consumption rates.
  • In comparison, the engine displacement of the Hitachi RB24EAP, at 23.9cc, falls short of the 27.2cc of the Stihl BG 50. This indicates that the latter might consume more fuel per stroke, thereby potentially delivering greater power.
  • With 2-cycle engines, both leaf blowers mandate an oil/fuel mix as part of their operation.

Other features comparison

Vacuum ability

With no leaf vacuuming functionality in either the Hitachi RB24EAP or the Stihl BG 50, you'll have to find another way to gather leaves.
