According to Stihl's Internet Sales Policy, it is not possible to buy a NEW Stihl product online in the USA. If you're looking at getting a high quality backpack blower that can be purchased new, online, and delivered to your door, we suggest you have a look at the reliable Husqvarna backpack blowers. You may otherwise be able to find refurbished or good second hand Stihl products on eBay with the links above.

Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the BR 200 and the BR 600 are both Stihl blowers, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail. 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 leaf 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

  • The Stihl BR 600, providing a CFM of 677 outmatches the 400 CFM of the Stihl BR 200. Your leaf blowing experience will therefore be outstandingly improved with the Stihl BR 600, as it should do a way better job at blowing leaves.
  • You will find that the Stihl BR 600 at the MPH of 238 outperforms the 150 MPH of the Stihl BR 200 and can blow leaves effortlessly in comparison to the latter.
  • Weight & Noise rating

  • The Stihl BR 600, weighing 21.6 lbs, greatly outweighs the 12.6 lbs of the Stihl BR 200, and therefore could be significantly more demanding for you to operate.
  • The louder Stihl BR 600, at the noise rating of 75 dB, comes above the 70 dB of the Stihl BR 200, and will be more noisy in comparison.
  • Engine specs comparison

  • The Stihl BR 600's 47.3 fl.oz. fuel tank outmatches the Stihl BR 200's 35.5 fl.oz. You may fill it up with way more fuel and presumably run it longer, if both engines had the same fuel consumption.
  • The Stihl BR 200's engine displacement of 27.2 cc is dwarfed by the 64.8 cc of the Stihl BR 600. While the latter uses way more fuel per stroke, it is in turn far more powerful.
  • Each of these blowers requires a fuel/oil mix to operate, as the Stihl BR 200 features a 2-cycle engine, and the Stihl BR 600 is powered by the Stihl 4-Mix 4-stroke engine.
  • Other features comparison

    Vacuum ability

    Neither the Stihl BR 200 nor the Stihl BR 600 has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
