Overview of the Husqvarna 550iBTX

The Husqvarna 550iBTX in use

The Husqvarna 550iBTX

  • Power: This cordless leaf blower has a maximum air volume rating of 551 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed rating of 148 MPH.
  • Power delivery: Husqvarna designed this unit and its brushless, battery-operated motor with top-of-the-food-chain maneuverability in mind. The 550iBTX doesn’t need to be plugged in, so you can take it anywhere easily.
  • Battery: The Husqvarna 550iBTX is powered by an easy-to-recharge 15.6 Ah 36 V Li-ion battery (battery not included).
  • 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. Among other electric backpack blowers, the Husqvarna 550iBTX can be considered light, weighing only 12.9 lbs.
  • Speed Settings: There are times when you only need a little more power, while other times you will want a bit more precision when clearing leaves and debris. For this purpose, the 550iBTX offers variable speed settings, adding you, the user, more control, and a cruise control mode, which will allow you to maintain it comfortably for as long as you wish.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 73 dB, the 550iBTX is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the electric backpack category.
