Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the Makita EB7660TH and the Husqvarna 580BTS do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary. Both products have their throttle located on the tube of the blower, which allows you to keep your left hand free.
  • 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, providing a CFM of 908, outmatches the 706 CFM of the Makita EB7660TH. Your leaf blowing experience will therefore be outstandingly improved with the Husqvarna 580BTS, as it should be able to move considerably more leaves per minute.
  • The Husqvarna 580BTS with an MPH of 209 slightly exceeds the 205 MPH of the Makita EB7660TH. Thus, in comparison, the former expels air at a slightly higher speed, and should do a better job at blowing leaves on grass or lifting wet leaves and debris (acorns, etc.).

Weight & Noise rating

  • The weight of the Husqvarna 580BTS, which is 25.8 lbs, slightly exceeds the 24.1 lbs of the Makita EB7660TH, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • The Husqvarna 580BTS produces 100 dB, which is significantly higher than the 76 dB of the Makita EB7660TH. Thus, the latter will be much easier on your ears.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Husqvarna 580BTS's 87.9 fl.oz. fuel tank outmatches the Makita EB7660TH's 64.2 fl.oz. You may fill it up with way more fuel and presumably run it longer, if both engines had the same fuel consumption.
  • These two products have an identical engine displacement of 75.6 cc. Thus, they consume comparable amounts of fuel per stroke and will provide you with similar output.
  • The Husqvarna 580BTS is powered by a 2-stroke engine and thus, requires an oil/fuel mix to operate, while in contrast, the 4-stroke engine powered Makita EB7660TH doesn’t.

Other features comparison

Vacuum ability

Neither the Husqvarna 580BTS nor the Makita EB7660TH has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
