Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the Stihl BR 700 and the Husqvarna 580BTS Mark III do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary. On both products, the throttle is situated on the blower tube, giving you the advantage of having your left hand available for other uses.
  • Designed as backpack blowers, both products boast substantial engines and sizable fuel tanks, making them easy to carry for extended periods.
  • 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 Husqvarna 580BTS Mark III boasts a slightly higher CFM rating of 1000 compared to the Stihl BR 700 (912 CFM), suggesting it may have a slight advantage in leaf-moving power.
  • With an MPH of 220, the Husqvarna 580BTS Mark III moderately surpasses the 197 MPH of the Stihl BR 700, offering slightly superior airspeed for enhanced performance in blowing leaves on grass or lifting heavy debris and wet leaves.

Weight & Noise rating

  • At 26.8 lbs, the Husqvarna 580BTS Mark III exceeds the 23.4 lbs of the Stihl BR 700, resulting in a heavier load for users and potentially leading to more fatigue over prolonged usage.
  • The Husqvarna 580BTS Mark III emits noise at 106 dB, markedly louder than the 75 dB of the Stihl BR 700. As a result, using the latter will be noticeably gentler on your ears and less likely to disrupt your neighbors.

Engine specs comparison

  • With its ample fuel capacity of 87.9 fl.oz., the Husqvarna 580BTS Mark III surpasses the Stihl BR 700's 47.3 fl.oz. tank. This larger reservoir means more fuel on hand, potentially extending runtime, provided both engines consume fuel at similar rates.
  • The Stihl BR 700's engine, with a displacement of 64.8cc, is smaller than the 75.6cc engine of the Husqvarna 580BTS Mark III. This implies that the latter might require more fuel per stroke, thus delivering higher power.
  • Each of these blowers requires a fuel/oil mix to operate, as the Husqvarna 580BTS Mark III features a 2-cycle engine, and the Stihl BR 700 is powered by the Stihl 4-Mix 4-stroke engine.
