Makita EB7660TH 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 Makita EB7660TH.

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 Makita EB7660TH 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 Makita EB7660TH with a CFM of 706 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 205 MPH of the Makita EB7660TH. 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 Makita EB7660TH, which is 24.1 lbs, slightly exceeds the 21.6 lbs of the Stihl BR 600, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • The noise rating of the Makita EB7660TH, 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 Makita EB7660TH's 64.2 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 64.8cc is lesser than the 75.6cc of the Makita EB7660TH. Therefore, the second may consume more fuel per stroke and is in turn be more powerful.
  • The two blowers feature a 4-cycle engine. However, while the Makita EB7660TH does not require an oil/fuel mix to operate, the Stihl BR 600 is powered Stihl 4-Mix engine and therefore, it does.

Other features comparison

Vacuum ability

Neither the Stihl BR 600 nor the Makita EB7660TH has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
