Overview of the Husqvarna 130BT

The Husqvarna 130BT in use

The Husqvarna 130BT

  • Power: The 130BT gas-powered blower, manufactured by Husqvarna, is rated for a max air volume of 360 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a max air speed of 145 MPH.
  • Handling: By design, this model isn’t the smallest leaf blower on the market. It’s meant to be carried as a backpack so that the bulk of the unit is out of the way and the user’s hands are free to manipulate the nozzle. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. When compared to other gas-powered backpack blowers, the Husqvarna 130BT stands out due to its lower weight: just 14.55 lbs.
  • Engine: Its X-Torq® engine boasts a displacement of 29.5 cc. As you may or may not know, 2-stroke engines require a mixture of gasoline and oil in order to keep all the moving parts lubricated while fuelling the engine’s internal combustion. The fuel/oil ratio recommended by Husqvarna for the 130BT is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: To provide more control over their job to the user, the unit has a variable speed control setting. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the Husqvarna 130BT to match it. On top of that, maintaining the selected speed is effortless, as it also features cruise control.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 91 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: The fuel tank has a capacity of 28.16 fl. oz. Although this is not especially impressive for a backpack blower, it allows the unit to maintain a decent overall weight, making it more portable and comfortable to use.
  • X-Torq®: The X-Torq® is Husqvarna's latest technology for two-stroke engines. It reduces fuel consumption by up to 20% and harmful exhaust emissions by up to 60% while increasing torque over a wider rpm range.
