Description

The Husqvarna 525BX is a powerful and well-balanced handheld blower for professional use. The patented X-Torq® engine technology, in combination with the special fan and housing design, means a high blowing capacity that’s easy to control. The LowVib® anti-vibration system makes work less strenuous – even during long shifts. Plus, cruise control and other smart features ensure efficient and convenient operation at all times.

Overview of the Husqvarna 525BX

The Husqvarna 525BX in use

The Husqvarna 525BX

  • Power: The Husqvarna 525BX is a gas-powered leaf blower. It sports a max air speed of 192 MPH and a max air volume rating of 459 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Handling: Being handheld, this blower has a good maneuverability and is meant to be easier to carry around over a small period of time. When compared to other gas-powered handheld blowers, the Husqvarna 525BX stands out due to its lower weight: just 9.48 lbs.
  • Engine: This blower's X-Torq® engine has a displacement specification 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: With its variable speed settings, the Husqvarna 525BX 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 525BX is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered handheld category.
  • Fuel Tank: With a capacity of 15.22 fl. oz., this Husqvarna blower is average compared to other gas handheld blowers.
  • 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.

The Husqvarna 525BX's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Husqvarna 525BX compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Forced air exiting this blower has been clocked at a max speed of 192 MPH. This puts the 525BX ahead of the pack as far as air speed is concerned in gas-powered handheld blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Craftsman BV2500 and its 250 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • It has a maximum air volume output of 459 CFM (cubic feet per minute). With this output rating, the 525BX is well within average in relation to similar gas-powered handheld blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Craftsman B225, with 650 CFM, could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other gas handheld blowers, the Husqvarna 525BX is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its kind, purchasing it could most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.

    I loved old design stihl tools,(BG86), but heard enough bad about new ones that I saw fit to look elsewhere. I also had great luck with redmax trimmers in the past. I found this Husqvarna blower, (exact same look, specs as redmax model), and figured I couldn’t miss on the price. Bought in late 2018, used on light snows and by late spring, idle is out of adjustment. I hope that’s all it is. I now see also that I need a special tool to fit adjustment screws. Not impressed if this is what Husky/ redmax has become since Husky takeover. Never had such an issue with older stihl, echo or redmax tools.

    + PROS: great price, free shipping
    - CONS: carb/ idle out of adjustment after a few months use.

    This is a pro grade blower. I have had a 125B for yrs and this is way better. Lots of power and easy to start. The only issue is this thing gets HOT. While running you can manage the heat to your hand, but when turned off there is no air flow to cool it and this thing actually gets hotter for a while on top til it finally cools down.

    + PROS: Very good blower. Significantly outperforms the Husqvarna 125b
    - CONS: Has heat issues. This thing can burn you after it has been turned off due to no more air flow to cool it.
