Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the Echo PB-2520 and the Stihl BG 86 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 Echo PB-2520 with a CFM of 453 slightly exceeds the 444 CFM of the Stihl BG 86. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former is able to move more leaves per minute.
  • The Stihl BG 86's MPH of 190 beats the 170 MPH of the Echo PB-2520. It therefore expels air faster and should aid you blowing leaves on grass or lifting heavy debris (acorns, etc.) and wet leaves more effectively.

Weight & Noise rating

  • The weight of the Stihl BG 86, which is 9.7 lbs, slightly exceeds the 8.8 lbs of the Echo PB-2520, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • Both devices have a noise rating of 70 dB. They should therefore be equally demanding on the ears.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Echo PB-2520's fuel tank has a volume of 16.9 fl.oz., exceeding the 14.9 fl.oz. of the Stihl BG 86. 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-2520's engine displacement of 25.4 cc is slightly outperformed by the 27.2 cc of the Stihl BG 86. 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 86 nor the Echo PB-2520 has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
