Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the RedMax EBZ8500 and the Stihl BR 600 do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary. The EBZ8500 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 RedMax EBZ8500, providing a CFM of 908, outmatches the 677 CFM of the Stihl BR 600. Your leaf blowing experience will therefore be outstandingly improved with the RedMax EBZ8500, as it should be able to move considerably more leaves per minute.
  • The Stihl BR 600's MPH of 238 beats the 206 MPH of the RedMax EBZ8500. 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 RedMax EBZ8500, standing at 24.7 lbs, dwarfs the 21.6 lbs of the Stihl BR 600, and may cause you more trouble physically when operating.
  • The RedMax EBZ8500 produces 103 dB, which significantly outmatches the 75 dB of the Stihl BR 600, and thus will be a lot louder than the latter.

Engine specs comparison

  • The RedMax EBZ8500's 77.7 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 75.6 cc of the RedMax EBZ8500. 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 RedMax EBZ8500 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 RedMax EBZ8500 has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
