    I say you're posting the wrong spec on the cfm's of the stihl. You're posting without the tube. Its in the 700's.

    And as far as mph goes, I pay no attention to that as I have an electric Homelite leaf blower/vac that says it blows 220 mph on high. Its not even close. Its all about the cfm's.
