Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the Stihl BR 430 and the Husqvarna 350BT do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary. Both products have their throttle located on the tube of the blower, which allows you to keep your left hand free.
  • These two products are constructed as backpack blowers, allowing you to comfortably carry their powerful engines and massive fuel tanks.
  • Both products are gas-powered blowers - gas is a reliable power source which you can refill in a matter of seconds.

CFM & MPH

  • The Stihl BR 430 with a CFM of 500 slightly exceeds the 494.41 CFM of the Husqvarna 350BT. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former is able to move more leaves per minute.
  • The Stihl BR 430's MPH of 219 beats the 180 MPH of the Husqvarna 350BT. It therefore expels air faster and should aid you blowing leaves on grass or lifting heavy debris (acorns, etc.) and wet leaves more effectively.

Weight & Noise rating

  • The weight of the Husqvarna 350BT, which is 22.5 lbs, slightly exceeds the 22.3 lbs of the Stihl BR 430, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • The Husqvarna 350BT produces 94 dB, which is significantly higher than the 76 dB of the Stihl BR 430. Thus, the latter will be much easier on your ears.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Stihl BR 430's 57.5 fl.oz. fuel tank outmatches the Husqvarna 350BT's 42.27 fl.oz. You may fill it up with way more fuel and presumably run it longer, if both engines had the same fuel consumption.
  • When compared, the Husqvarna 350BT's engine displacement at 50.2 cc is lesser than the 57.5 cc of the Stihl BR 430. 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 Husqvarna 350BT nor the Stihl BR 430 has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
