Echo PB-580T vs Stihl 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 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:

Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the Echo PB-580T and the Stihl BR 700 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 700, providing a CFM of 912, outmatches the 510 CFM of the Echo PB-580T. Your leaf blowing experience will therefore be outstandingly improved with the Stihl BR 700, as it should be able to move considerably more leaves per minute.
  • The Echo PB-580T with an MPH of 215 slightly exceeds the 197 MPH of the Stihl BR 700. 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 22.6 lbs of the Echo PB-580T, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • The Stihl BR 700's noise rating of 75 dB exceeds the 70 dB of the Echo PB-580T. Therefore, the Echo PB-580T will be easier on your (and your neighbor's) ears.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Echo PB-580T's 62 fl.oz. fuel tank outmatches the Stihl BR 700'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 700. 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 700 is powered by the Stihl 4-Mix 4-stroke engine.

Other features comparison

Vacuum ability

Neither the Stihl BR 700 nor the Echo PB-580T has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
