Stihl Leaf Blowers Now Rated In Newtons of Force........Side By Side Comparisons

9/14/2016 - 11:53:02 AM

It's been confusing to compare leaf blowers until now. MPH, CFM, HP etc = confusion. Stihl now rates its leaf blowers in Newtons. See Pro and Home Models Below. So what is a Newton of force anyway?

Newton is the force needed to accelerate 1 kg of mass at the rate of 1 m/sec2.

See the Newton number beside each model shown below for easy comparison of one to another.

In non technical terms a Newton is factoring in both the effect of MPH and Cubic Feet Per Minute or CFM. We did a variation of that here at Gap Power in the days before Newtons by multiplying MPH w/ CFM and using that number to compare machines.

I had no idea that a leaf blower could be that strong. It makes a lot more sense to me to see it represented in newtons instead of the speed of the air blown. My rake is probably not doing me any favors compared to a nice Stihl blower. This will be my next tool purchase. http://www.wagonerpower.com/s/search/inventory/brand/STIHL/type/Blowers/sort/best-match

I have looking so many items after reading your Leaf Blower review post. But I think grade backpack blower is the best for small yard. And for this I'm purchasedgrade backpack blower and can not believe how well it works. This will be my next tool purchase.

Love the smell of leaves in the fall but raking leaves isn't as easy as it once was! Our Stihl is on its last season I'm afraid but we'll be considering a new Stihl. Thanks for this review on leaf blowers' force.
