Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • Because the Stihl BR 600 and the Husqvarna 560BTS are produced by separate manufacturers, there might be differences in their overall design and technological implementation. On both products, the throttle is situated on the blower tube, giving you the advantage of having your left hand available for other uses.
  • These two products are constructed as backpack blowers, allowing you to comfortably carry their big 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, offering you the freedom of movement to tackle larger outdoor spaces with ease.

CFM & MPH

  • The Stihl BR 600 with a CFM of 677 slightly exceeds the 631 CFM of the Husqvarna 560BTS. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former is able to move more leaves per minute.
  • The Stihl BR 600 with an MPH of 238 slightly exceeds the 232 MPH of the Husqvarna 560BTS. 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

  • At 23.25 lbs, the Husqvarna 560BTS just slightly outweighs the 21.6 lbs of the Stihl BR 600, potentially offering a touch more comfort in handling.
  • The Husqvarna 560BTS emits noise at 97 dB, markedly louder than the 75 dB of the Stihl BR 600. As a result, using the latter will be noticeably gentler on your ears and less likely to disrupt your neighbors.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Husqvarna 560BTS boasts a significantly larger fuel tank, holding 74.4 fl.oz. compared to the Stihl BR 600's 47.3 fl.oz. This allows for substantially more fuel storage and potentially longer operation, assuming similar fuel consumption rates for both engines.
  • These two products boast engine displacements that are nearly identical. Consequently, their fuel consumption per stroke should be comparable, resulting in similar output levels.
  • Each of these blowers requires a fuel/oil mix to operate, as the Husqvarna 560BTS features a 2-cycle engine, and the Stihl BR 600 is powered by the Stihl 4-Mix 4-stroke engine.

Other features comparison

Vacuum ability

Neither the Husqvarna 560BTS nor the Stihl BR 600 can vacuum leaves, so you'll need an alternative approach to collect them.
