Description

The Husqvarna 130BT is a unique lightweight back pack blower with the large landowner in mind. It combines very low weight and ease of use for those who have to work for longer periods of time. Features include a new X-Torq® engine for increased power, better fuel economy and reduced emissions. Harness and tube-mounted controls improve operational ergonomics.

Overview of the Husqvarna 130BT

The Husqvarna 130BT in use

The Husqvarna 130BT

  • Power: The Husqvarna 130BT is a gas-powered leaf blower. It sports a max air speed of 145 MPH and a max air volume rating of 360 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Handling: Like most backpack blowers, this model is technically heavier than a handheld. That being said, it can feel lighter and more comfortable because of the way it is carried, even when used over extended periods of time. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. Among other gas-powered backpack blowers, the Husqvarna 130BT can be considered light, weighing only 14.55 lbs.
  • Engine: This blower's X-Torq® engine has a displacement specification of 29.5cc. Please note that, because the Husqvarna 130BT's engine is a 2-cycle one, it runs on a mixture of oil and gasoline. According to Husqvarna, the proper fuel mixture ratio for this blower is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: With its variable speed settings, the Husqvarna 130BT allows you to precisely control its air output. In addition, the blower is also equipped with cruise control, with which the user can easily maintain the selected settings.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 91 dB, the 130BT is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered backpack category.
  • 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.

    I have had a 130BT for over ten years. Kept the right fuel and oil mix, followed the right starting sequence and it has never failed to start within 3 pulls. Not one time. Eventually one of the torx screws holding the engine on stripped out and the other screw works it way loose every so often. But as long as I keep that one tight it still works great. Could not have gotten better service out of it even though it has worked HARD that whole time. That said, I finally discovered after all those years of fighting wet and thick leaves on my 3 acre property covered with trees that I have been working WAY too hard with a machine that was just too small for my job. I have upgraded to the 360BT and wow what a difference that has made. So, if you have a small residential application of less than a 1/2 acre and only a few trees then you will be well satisfied with the 130BT (and I still have mine as a backup). But for anything larger spend the money for a 360BT or 560BT.

You can compare as many blowers as you wish. However, for the best results, we recommend you to compare only 2 blowers at a time.
