Echo PB-580T vs Stihl BR 600 - The differences

Further down the page, you'll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the Stihl BR 600 and the Echo PB-580T.

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

Stihl BR 600Echo PB-580T

  • Higher cc
  • 4-Mix engine
  • Less noisy
  • Bigger fuel tank

Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the Echo PB-580T and the Stihl BR 600 do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary. 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 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 510 CFM of the Echo PB-580T. 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.
  • The Stihl BR 600 with the MPH of 238 slightly exceeds the 215 MPH of the Echo PB-580T. 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-580T, which is 22.6 lbs, slightly exceeds the 21.6 lbs of the Stihl BR 600, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • The louder Stihl BR 600, at the noise rating of 75 dB, comes above the 70 dB of the Echo PB-580T, and will be more noisy in comparison.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Echo PB-580T's 62 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.
  • The Echo PB-580T's engine displacement of 58.2 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 Echo PB-580T 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 Echo PB-580T has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
