  • Handling: For those who are looking for a portable and convenient leaf blower, this model is a strong candidate. It’s designed for easy handling and use, and its size means it’s easily carried and stored. 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 is fitted with a 25.4 cc X-Torq® engine. Please note that, because the Husqvarna 525BX’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.

  • Noise: Its noise rating of 106 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered handheld blowers.

    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.
