Further down the page, you'll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the Stihl BR 600 and the Shindaiwa EB802.

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 Shindaiwa EB802 and the Stihl BR 600 do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary. The EB802 has a hip throttle, whereas the BR 600's throttle is located on the tube of the blower and allows you to free your left hand. Whether the hip-mount or the tube-mount is better is a matter of personal preference.
  • These two products are constructed as backpack 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 Shindaiwa EB802 with a CFM of 695 slightly exceeds the 677 CFM of the Stihl BR 600. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former is able to move more leaves per minute.
  • The Stihl BR 600's MPH of 238 beats the 210 MPH of the Shindaiwa EB802. 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 heavier Shindaiwa EB802, standing at 25.1 lbs, dwarfs the 21.6 lbs of the Stihl BR 600, and may cause you more trouble physically when operating.
  • The noise rating of the Shindaiwa EB802, which is 76 dB, slightly exceeds the 75 dB of the Stihl BR 600. Even if this difference could seem unsignificant, the former is still slightly more noisy.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Shindaiwa EB802's 68.3 fl.oz. fuel tank outmatches the Stihl BR 600's 47.3 fl.oz. You may fill it up with way more fuel and presumably run it longer, if both engines had the same fuel consumption.
  • When compared, the Stihl BR 600's engine displacement at 64.8 cc is lesser than the 79.2 cc of the Shindaiwa EB802. Therefore, the second may consume more fuel per stroke and is in turn be more powerful.
  • Each of these blowers requires a fuel/oil mix to operate, as the Shindaiwa EB802 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 600 nor the Shindaiwa EB802 has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
