Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the Stihl BR 600 and the Husqvarna 560BTS 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 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

  • The weight of the Husqvarna 560BTS, which is 23.25 lbs, slightly exceeds the 21.6 lbs of the Stihl BR 600, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • The Husqvarna 560BTS produces 97 dB, which is significantly higher than the 75 dB of the Stihl BR 600. Thus, the latter will be much easier on your ears.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Husqvarna 560BTS's 74.4 fl.oz. fuel tank outmatches the Stihl BR 600's 47.3 fl.oz. You may fill it up with way more fuel and presumably run it longer, if both engines had the same fuel consumption.
  • In comparison, the Stihl BR 600's engine displacement of 64.8 cc is slightly outperformed by the 65.5 cc of the Husqvarna 560BTS. This suggests that the latter consumes slightly larger amounts of fuel per stroke and will provide you with slightly more power.
  • 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 has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
