Make & handling

  • Since the Echo PB-2520 and the Stihl BG 50 are made by different manufacturers, you may find variations in their overall construction and the technology employed.
  • As handheld blowers, both products grant you superior maneuverability wherever you need to work.
  • Both products are gas-powered blowers, providing a reliable power source that can be refilled in seconds, granting you the flexibility to navigate through expansive outdoor areas effortlessly.

CFM & MPH

  • The Echo PB-2520 with a CFM of 453 slightly exceeds the 412 CFM of the Stihl BG 50. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former is able to move more leaves per minute.
  • The Echo PB-2520 with an MPH of 170 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 Echo PB-2520, weighing 8.8 lbs, edges slightly above the 7.9 lbs of the Stihl BG 50, implying that while it's marginally heavier, you may notice a tad more comfort and ease in handling the latter.
  • Both devices maintain a noise level of 70 dB, ensuring they're equally respectful of your neighbors' peace and equally pleasant for you to operate without excessive noise.

Engine specs comparison

  • With a fuel tank volume of 18.6 fl.oz., the Echo PB-2520 outshines the Stihl BG 50, which holds 14.5 fl.oz. This enables you to carry more fuel, offering the possibility of longer operation, provided the engines consume fuel at comparable rates.
  • Comparatively, the engine displacement of the Echo PB-2520 at 25.4cc falls slightly behind the 27.2cc of the Stihl BG 50. Consequently, the latter might utilize a tad more fuel per stroke, yielding a slight increase in power output.
  • Both of these leaf blowers are equipped with 2-cycle engines, meaning they require an oil/fuel mix for operation.
