Echo PB-250LN vs Stihl BG 50 - The differences

Further down the page, you'll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the Stihl BG 50 and the Echo PB-250LN.

But before checking out these explanations, here's a table that summarizes the main pros of each of these 2 leaf blowers:

Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the Echo PB-250LN and the Stihl BG 50 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 Stihl BG 50 with a CFM of 412 slightly exceeds the 391 CFM of the Echo PB-250LN. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former is able to move more leaves per minute.
  • The Echo PB-250LN with an MPH of 165 slightly exceeds the 159 MPH of the Stihl BG 50. 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 heavier Echo PB-250LN, standing at 9.5 lbs, dwarfs the 7.9 lbs of the Stihl BG 50, and may cause you more trouble physically when operating.
  • The louder Stihl BG 50, at the noise rating of 70 dB, comes above the 65 dB of the Echo PB-250LN, and will be more noisy in comparison.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Echo PB-250LN's fuel tank has a volume of 16.9 fl.oz., exceeding the 14.5 fl.oz. of the Stihl BG 50. Therefore, you may store more fuel in the device and theoretically operate it longer, if their engines are equally demanding.
  • In comparison, the Echo PB-250LN's engine displacement of 25.4 cc is slightly outperformed by the 27.2 cc of the Stihl BG 50. 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 Stihl BG 50 nor the Echo PB-250LN has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
