Further down the page, you'll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the Husqvarna 130BT and the Stihl BR 200.

But before checking out these explanations, here's a table that summarizes the main pros of each of these 2 leaf blowers:

Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the Stihl BR 200 and the Husqvarna 130BT do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary.
  • These two products are constructed as backpack leaf 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 200 with the CFM of 400 slightly exceeds the 374.34 CFM of the Husqvarna 130BT. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former blows leaves slightly more efficiently.
  • The Stihl BR 200 with the MPH of 150 slightly exceeds the 145 MPH of the Husqvarna 130BT. Thus, in comparison, the former expels air at a slightly higher speed and should do a better job at blowing leaves.
  • Weight & Noise rating

  • The heavier Husqvarna 130BT, standing at 14.55 lbs, dwarfs the 12.6 lbs of the Stihl BR 200, and may cause you more trouble physically when operating.
  • The loud Husqvarna 130BT, which produces 102 dB, significantly outmatches the 70 dB of the Stihl BR 200, and thus will be a lot louder than the latter.
  • Engine specs comparison

  • The Stihl BR 200's fuel tank has a volume of 35.5 fl.oz., exceeding the 28.16 fl.oz. of the Husqvarna 130BT. Therefore, you may store more fuel in the device and theoretically operate it longer, if their engines are equally demanding.
  • In comparison, the Stihl BR 200's engine displacement of 27.2 cc is slightly outperformed by the 29.5 cc of the Husqvarna 130BT. This suggests that the latter consumes slightly larger amounts of fuel per stroke and will provide you with slightly more power.
  • 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 130BT nor the Stihl BR 200 has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
