Overview of the Husqvarna 550iBTX

The Husqvarna 550iBTX in use

The Husqvarna 550iBTX

  • Power: The 550iBTX is a cordless blower made by Husqvarna. It has a maximum air speed of 121 MPH and its nozzle can expel a max air volume of 452 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • 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 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. At 13.9 lbs for the blower alone, the Husqvarna 550iBTX is within the average weight range of electric backpack blowers.
  • Speed Settings: For those who wish to have complete control while operating their leaf blower, the 550iBTX offers variable speed settings, and moreover, is also equipped with cruise control, which allows the user to comfortably continue blowing at their preferred setting.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 61 dB can be considered the standard for similar electric backpack blowers.

The Husqvarna 550iBTX's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Husqvarna 550iBTX compare with other cordless backpack leaf blowers.

  • Maxing out at 121 MPH at full power, this blower is on the lower end in terms of air speed for battery-operated backpack blowers. For the fastest air speed in this category, you may want to consider the Echo DPB-5800T, which can expell air at a velocity that can reach 195 MPH.
  • Its max air volume rating (452 cubic feet per minute) means it is really not the biggest air producer of cordless backpack blowers with a comparable voltage. For the highest air volume, you may want to have a look at the EGO LBPX8004-2, which boasts with 800 CFM.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other cordless backpack blowers, the Husqvarna 550iBTX is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget blower.
