Q: What's the difference between the BTS and the BFS MODELS
by Rich from Ohio on November 10, 2014

A: Rich - the only difference in these two units is the location of the throttle control lever. The "T" model has the throttle control mounted on the blower tube. The "F" model has the throttle control mounted on the frame. The tube mounted throttle control is the more popular of the two.
by Dale, Product Expert
Q: is the throttle on the tube part of all Husqvarna leaf blowers, I am looking at the 560bts? what does bts mean?
by Debra Vajcovec from Connecticut on November 14, 2013

A: Debra,

The throttle on the Husqvarna Backpack blowers can be found on either the tube or on the left side mounted to the frame.

Q: Hey Joe- I am needing a gas powered leaf blower with mulching capabilities that has great reviews. Possibly one that is a backpack. We have about 8 acres that will be covered in leaves soon, so we need a good solid leaf blower. price range $200-$350.
Thanks for your suggestions. Is shipping included ?

by Puma Stangl from Arizona on October 06, 2013

A: Puma,

Unfortunately we do not carry any back pack blowers that have any vacuum mulching capabilities.

I would recommend a walk behind leaf vacuum, but the price range is more in the $800-$1000 range.

If you have any further questions, always feel free to contact me directly at 800-710-7499 Ext. 133.

I'm always happy to help!

Power Equipment Direct Recommended

The Husqvarna 560BTS 65.6cc Backpack Blower delivers top of the line performance in a lightweight, compact package. Preferred by many lawn care pro's, this back pack blower will amaze you with its power.

With a 65.6cc, 2-cycle engine and a maximum air speed of 232mph, this unit is not only powerful, but it is surprisingly comfortable with specially designed padding and hip belt, the weight of the blower (about 23 pounds) is evenly distributed in such a way that you can use the blower for... more

Not Your Grandfather's Rake
After doing my usual research for a new leaf blower, I decided to go for the gusto and get something of commercial quality. My Echo PB403 of 20 years bit the dust, and with 13 acres of leaves and other associated debris to clear, I was willing to spend a little more if it was worth it.

I watched several You Tube videos on leaf blowers and learned the difference between MPH and volume of air being moved (CFM). I decided on the Husqvarna 560BTS, then researched who had the best price. ... more

It's In The Repair Shop After Two Hours Of Use.
Followed all directions for first use. Started it and used it for two hours. Soon it bogged down at full throttle. Called Power Equipment Direct and was passed on to Husqvarna without any sort of help.

Husqvarna said something about factory carburetor settings being set to meet EPA standards and I would need to bring it to a Husqvarna licensed repair shop. Took it to the shop and was hassled about proof of purchase, was it a "refurbished" unit, did I use correct fuel.

Pros: Looks new. Is it?, Doesn't take up much space, because it's in the shop., Still have the box, but P.E.D. Says I can't ship it back.
Cons: In the shop after 2 hours., Major hassle to deal with., PED, no help.

Good Machine
I have the 50cc and the 65.6 cc that I just bought. They both are great machines, the 560BTS seems to not have the length in the tubes and the air is about the same. If I were to buy again I would get the 50cc but both are well worth it. Better than pushing.
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, Price, Reliable
Cons: None

Don't Mess With Smaller Blowers If You Have A Large Yard.
Upgraded to the 560BTS from a 125B Husqvarna blower. There's just no comparison. My yard is about 1 acre in the woods with about 10 oaks & maples in the front yard. The 560BTS makes short work of the leaves allowing me to move large amounts of leaves off into the woods where the 125B struggled. I also do trail maintenance on local hiking/biking trails. The 560BTS clears leaves, sticks, and just about everything else from the trail without even running at full throttle. Only limitation... more

Great Product
I have used handheld blowers and push blowers. This is the first backpack blower. My wife and I use the push blower and this blower. We have reduced the time to clean the yard to one-third the time with the push blower and the hand held blower.

The air power of the blower is amazing. Easy assembly and operation. We have a lot of leaves to move in the fall, and this blower is up to the task.

18 Year Old Son Says Best Thing I Ever Bought
I was looking to clean up leaves in the yard, but it so good for many other things. Blew debris out of garage and blew down cob webs. Also blew doggy droppings off patio. Best of all, my son loves to use it...Win-Win.

A Great Time-saver
Bought new home with one acre of lawn. Yard ends at the woods. Clearing the fall leaves with this blower has been a great time & energy saver versus using my lawn tractor. Highly suggest this model if you have a sizable yard area to clear. Easy to assemble out of the box & fired-up with no problems.
Pros: High Quality, Fast, Exceeded Expectations, Easy To Use

Excellent Product
Blower arrived on time, and it was very easy to put a couple of parts into place, but it was important to read the directions. I have a large yard with many leaf dropping trees near the house. The blower did a great job, allowing me to collect most of the leaves into a pile about 4 feet high & 35 feet long, and then I was able to take sections & blow the leaves into the woods.

A large job, but a job that was able to get done with this blower. I didn't get a chance to use it yet to... more

Sorry I Did Not Get This 25 Years Ago!
Easy to assemble. Easy to start. Tremendous power. Wished it had a belt across the front to help hold it in place otherwise a perfect machine. Extremely powerful, it can pick up a rock the size of a baseball and throw it so be careful and wear hearing and eye protection.

The Huaqvarna gas in a can is a little expensive, but it runs well on it and the gas keeps. One tip if the canned gas is too expensive or if you are using it a lot buy premium---high octane--gas as it does not have... more
