Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the Stihl BR 430 and the Husqvarna 360BT 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

  • In comparison, the Husqvarna 360BT, with a CFM of 631, beats the 500 CFM of the Stihl BR 430, making it the superior landscaping tool of the two, when it comes to the amount of leaves that can be blown per minute.
  • The Husqvarna 360BT with an MPH of 232 slightly exceeds the 219 MPH of the Stihl BR 430. 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 360BT, which is 23.2 lbs, slightly exceeds the 22.3 lbs of the Stihl BR 430, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • The Husqvarna 360BT produces 97 dB, which is significantly higher than the 76 dB of the Stihl BR 430. Thus, the latter will be much easier on your ears.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Husqvarna 360BT's 74.4 fl.oz. fuel tank outmatches the Stihl BR 430's 57.5 fl.oz. You may fill it up with way more fuel and presumably run it longer, if both engines had the same fuel consumption.
  • When compared, the Stihl BR 430's engine displacement at 57.5 cc is lesser than the 65.6 cc of the Husqvarna 360BT. Therefore, the second may consume more fuel per stroke and is in turn be more powerful.
  • 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 360BT nor the Stihl BR 430 has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
