Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • Given that the Stihl BR 430 and the Husqvarna 150BT come from distinct manufacturers, their construction and technological features may differ. You'll find the throttle positioned on the tube of both products, ensuring that your left hand remains unoccupied for other activities.
  • Engineered as backpack blowers, these two products feature sizeable engines and large fuel tanks, ensuring comfortable carrying during operation.
  • Both products, gas blowers, offer a swift refill system, saving you time on refueling and allowing you to efficiently manage large outdoor spaces.

CFM & MPH

  • The Stihl BR 430 with a CFM of 500 slightly exceeds the 452 CFM of the Husqvarna 150BT. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former is able to move more leaves per minute.
  • The MPH of the Husqvarna 150BT, at 270, modestly exceeds the 219 MPH of the Stihl BR 430, allowing it to blow leaves on grass or lift heavy debris (acorns, etc.) and wet leaves more effectively.

Weight & Noise rating

  • The Stihl BR 430, weighing 22.3 lbs, edges slightly above the 22 lbs of the Husqvarna 150BT, implying that while it's marginally heavier, you may notice a tad more comfort and ease in handling the latter.
  • The Husqvarna 150BT emits noise at 94 dB, markedly louder than the 76 dB of the Stihl BR 430. As a result, using the latter will be noticeably gentler on your ears and less likely to disrupt your neighbors.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Stihl BR 430 boasts a significantly larger fuel tank, holding 57.5 fl.oz. compared to the Husqvarna 150BT's 42.6 fl.oz. This allows for substantially more fuel storage and potentially longer operation, assuming similar fuel consumption rates for both engines.
  • The Husqvarna 150BT's engine, with a displacement of 51cc, is smaller than the 57.5cc engine of the Stihl BR 430. This implies that the latter might require more fuel per stroke, thus delivering higher power.
  • Both of these leaf blowers are equipped with 2-cycle engines, meaning they require an oil/fuel mix for operation.

Other features comparison

Vacuum ability

With no leaf vacuuming functionality in either the Husqvarna 150BT or the Stihl BR 430, you'll have to find another way to gather leaves.
