Overview of the Husqvarna 525BX

  • Power: The Husqvarna 525BX is a gas-powered leaf blower with a maximum air volume rating of 459 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 192 MPH.
  • 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 leaf 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. 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. You can find the manufacturer’s specific gas/oil ratio in your user manual.
  • Speed Settings: Thanks to its variable speed settings, the Husqvarna 525BX allows precise control of the air output.

  • Fuel Tank: Its tank can hold 15.22 fl. oz., so it falls squarely in the average in terms of fuel capacity.
  • 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.
