Overview of the Husqvarna 525BX
- Power: The 525BX gas-powered blower, manufactured by Husqvarna, is rated for a max air volume of 459 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a max air speed of 192 MPH.
- Handling: It’s handheld, so naturally it’s easier to handle and carry than larger leaf blowers, such as backpack models or walk-behinds. When compared to other gas-powered handheld blowers, the Husqvarna 525BX stands out due to its lower weight: just 9.48 lbs.
- Engine: Its X-Torq® engine boasts a displacement of 25.4 cc. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the 525BX cannot run on gasoline alone. The fuel must be mixed with an appropriate ratio of gasoline and oil in order for it to function properly (for this Husqvarna model, this ratio is 50:1).
- Speed Settings: In order to afford more control to the user, this unit has a variable speed control. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the Husqvarna 525BX to match.
- Noise: Note that this blower is somewhat on the noisy end of gas-powered handheld blowers, as its engine can reach an operating noise level of around 106 dB.
- Fuel Tank: It has an average fuel capacity, with a tank able to hold around 15.22 fl. oz of fuel.
- 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.
