Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the Stihl BG 86 and the Husqvarna 525BX do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary.
  • These two products are handheld blowers and therefore provide you with superior mobility.
  • 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 525BX with a CFM of 459 slightly exceeds the 444 CFM of the Stihl BG 86. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former is able to move more leaves per minute.
  • The Husqvarna 525BX with an MPH of 192 slightly exceeds the 190 MPH of the Stihl BG 86. 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 Stihl BG 86, which is 9.7 lbs, slightly exceeds the 9.48 lbs of the Husqvarna 525BX, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • The Husqvarna 525BX produces 91 dB, which is significantly higher than the 70 dB of the Stihl BG 86. Thus, the latter will be much easier on your ears.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Husqvarna 525BX has a slightly larger fuel tank, with the volume of 15.22 fl.oz., compared to the 14.9 fl.oz. of the Stihl BG 86. Thus, it can store more fuel and you may theoretically operate it for slightly longer, if their engines had the same fuel requirements.
  • In comparison, the Husqvarna 525BX's engine displacement of 25.4 cc is slightly outperformed by the 27.2 cc of the Stihl BG 86. This suggests that the latter consumes slightly larger amounts of fuel per stroke and will provide you with slightly more power.
  • Each of these leaf blowers features a 2-cycle engine. Thus, they both require you to have an oil/fuel mix to operate.

Other features comparison

Vacuum ability

Neither the Husqvarna 525BX nor the Stihl BG 86 has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
