Make & handling

  • 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 Husqvarna 580BTS Mark II, providing a CFM of 941, outmatches the 677 CFM of the Stihl BR 600. Your leaf blowing experience will therefore be outstandingly improved with the Husqvarna 580BTS Mark II, as it should be able to move considerably more leaves per minute.
