Further down the page, you'll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the Stihl BR 700 and the RedMax EBZ8500.

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 RedMax EBZ8500 and the Stihl BR 700 do not share the same manufacturer, their overall build and technology in use can vary. The EBZ8500 has a hip throttle, whereas the BR 700'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 Stihl BR 700 with a CFM of 912 slightly exceeds the 908 CFM of the RedMax EBZ8500. Thus, in comparison, you may find that the former is able to move more leaves per minute.
  • The RedMax EBZ8500 with an MPH of 206 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 RedMax EBZ8500, which is 24.7 lbs, slightly exceeds the 23.4 lbs of the Stihl BR 700, and will therefore require you to carry around slightly more weight.
  • The RedMax EBZ8500 produces 103 dB, which is significantly higher than the 75 dB of the Stihl BR 700. Thus, the latter will be much easier on your ears.

Engine specs comparison

  • The RedMax EBZ8500's 77.7 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.
  • When compared, the Stihl BR 700'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 700 is powered by the Stihl 4-Mix 4-stroke engine.

Other features comparison

Vacuum ability

Neither the Stihl BR 700 nor the RedMax EBZ8500 has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
