Stihl BR 700 X vs BR 700 - The differences

Further down the page, you'll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the Stihl BR 700 and the Stihl BR 700 X.

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

Stihl BR 700Stihl BR 700 X

  • Higher CFM
  • Higher MPH
  • Lighter
According to Stihl's Internet Sales Policy, it is not possible to buy a NEW Stihl product online in the USA. If you're looking at getting a high quality backpack blower that can be purchased new, online, and delivered to your door, we suggest you have a look at the reliable Husqvarna backpack blowers. You may otherwise be able to find refurbished or good second hand Stihl products on eBay with the links above.

Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the BR 700 and the BR 700 X are both Stihl blowers, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail. 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 700 with a CFM of 912 slightly exceeds the 901 CFM of the Stihl BR 700 X. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former is able to move more leaves per minute.
  • The Stihl BR 700 with an MPH of 197 slightly exceeds the 193 MPH of the Stihl BR 700 X. Thus, in comparison, the former expels air at a slightly higher speed, and should do a better job at blowing leaves on grass or lifting wet leaves and debris (acorns, etc.).

Weight & Noise rating

  • The weight of the Stihl BR 700, which is 23.4 lbs, slightly exceeds the 23 lbs of the Stihl BR 700 X, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • Both devices have a noise rating of 75 dB. They should therefore be equally demanding on the ears.

Engine specs comparison

  • Both devices have an identical fuel tank size of 47.3 fl.oz. They will therefore require you to refill them at roughly same rates.
  • These two products have an identical engine displacement of 64.8 cc. Thus, they consume comparable amounts of fuel per stroke and will provide you with similar output.
  • The leaf blowers have a 4-cycle engine. Both feature a Stihl 4-Mix engine design though, and therefore require an oil/fuel mix.

Other features comparison

Vacuum ability

Neither the Stihl BR 700 nor the Stihl BR 700 X has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
