Echo PB-265LN vs Stihl BR 200 - The differences

Further down the page, you'll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the Stihl BR 200 and the Echo PB-265LN.

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

  • Higher cc
  • Higher MPH
  • Less noisy

Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the Echo PB-265LN and the Stihl BR 200 do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary.
  • 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 200 with the CFM of 400 slightly exceeds the 375 CFM of the Echo PB-265LN. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former blows leaves slightly more efficiently.
  • The Echo PB-265LN with the MPH of 158 slightly exceeds the 150 MPH of the Stihl BR 200. 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 Echo PB-265LN, which is 13.3 lbs, slightly exceeds the 12.6 lbs of the Stihl BR 200, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • The louder Stihl BR 200, at the noise rating of 70 dB, comes above the 64 dB of the Echo PB-265LN, and will be more noisy in comparison.
  • Engine specs comparison

  • The Stihl BR 200's 35.5 fl.oz. fuel tank outmatches the Echo PB-265LN's 22.3 fl.oz. You may fill it up with way more fuel and presumably run it longer, if both engines had the same fuel consumption.
  • In comparison, the Echo PB-265LN's engine displacement of 25.4 cc is slightly outperformed by the 27.2 cc of the Stihl BR 200. 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 BR 200 nor the Echo PB-265LN has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
