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 will 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 the CFM of 459 slightly exceeds the 444 CFM of the Stihl BG 86. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former blows leaves slightly more efficiently.
  • The Husqvarna 525BX with the 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.
  • 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 loud Husqvarna 525BX, which produces 106 dB, significantly outmatches the 70 dB of the Stihl BG 86, and thus will be a lot louder than the latter.
  • 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.
