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 800 X MAGNUM® and the BR 800 C-E MAGNUM® 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. However, the Stihl BR 800 C-E MAGNUM® features the Easy2Start technology.
  • 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 two blowers have an identical CFM of 912. By providing you with the same volumes of air, both units should allow, on a hard surface, to move the same amount of dry leaves per minute.
  • These two products have an identical MPH of 239. By providing you with the same air speeds, they should both be as efficient when blowing leaves on grass or lifting wet leaves and debris (acorns, etc.).

Weight & Noise rating

  • The heavier Stihl BR 800 C-E MAGNUM®, standing at 25.8 lbs, dwarfs the 23 lbs of the Stihl BR 800 X MAGNUM®, and may cause you more trouble physically when operating.
  • Both devices have a noise rating of 78 dB. They should therefore be equally demanding on the ears.

Engine specs comparison

  • Both devices have an identical fuel tank size of 67.6 fl.oz. They will therefore require you to refill them at roughly same rates.
  • These two products have an identical engine displacement of 79.9 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 800 X MAGNUM® nor the Stihl BR 800 C-E MAGNUM® has the ability to vacuum leaves. Thus, you will require another method of leaf collection.
