Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the Stihl BG 86 and the Husqvarna 125B do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary.
  • These two products are handheld blowers and therefore will 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 Stihl BG 86 with the CFM of 444 slightly exceeds the 425 CFM of the Husqvarna 125B. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former blows leaves slightly more efficiently.
  • The Stihl BG 86's MPH of 190 beats the 170 MPH of the Husqvarna 125B. It therefore expels air faster and should aid you with landscaping more effectively.
  • Weight & Noise rating

  • The weight of the Stihl BG 86, which is 9.7 lbs, slightly exceeds the 9.4 lbs of the Husqvarna 125B, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • The loud Husqvarna 125B, which produces 107 dB, significantly outmatches the 70 dB of the Stihl BG 86, and thus will be a lot louder than the latter.
  • Engine specs comparison

  • The Husqvarna 125B's fuel tank has a volume of 16.91 fl.oz., exceeding the 14.9 fl.oz. of the Stihl BG 86. Therefore, you may store more fuel in the device and theoretically operate it longer, if their engines are equally demanding.
  • In comparison, the Stihl BG 86's engine displacement of 27.2 cc is slightly outperformed by the 28 cc of the Husqvarna 125B. 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 125B nor the Stihl BG 86 has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
