  • 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. At 23.2 lbs, the Husqvarna 360BT is within the average weight range of gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Engine: Its X-Torq® engine boasts a displacement of 65.6 cc.

    Idle is super quiet, sits well on your back. Not overly heavy with fuel. Entry point of a commercial grade blower. the CFM Rating on this site is incorrect. the actual cfm is 890 CFM. By far the best out there in my opinion. Better than Echo, Stihl, and the rest.
