Overview of the Husqvarna 560BFS

The Husqvarna 560BFS in use

The Husqvarna 560BFS

  • Power: The Husqvarna 560BFS is a gas-powered leaf blower. It sports a max air speed of 232 MPH and a max air volume rating of 631 cubic feet per minute (CFM).
  • Handling: Like most backpack blowers, this model is technically heavier than a handheld. That being said, it can feel lighter and more comfortable because of the way it is carried, even when used over extended periods of time. Its throttle is hip-mounted, which can make it easier on your right hand if you operate it over an extended period of time. At 23.4 lbs, the Husqvarna 560BFS is within the average weight range of gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Engine: This blower's X-Torq® engine has a displacement specification of 65.6 cc. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the 560BFS 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: 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 560BFS 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: Its noise rating of 97 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: It has an average fuel capacity, with a tank able to hold around 74.4 fl. oz of fuel.
  • 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 560BFS's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Husqvarna 560BFS compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 232 MPH, which is rather impressive for a gas-powered backpack blower. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Husqvarna 150BT and its 251 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • It has a maximum air volume output of 631 CFM (cubic feet per minute). With this output rating, the 560BFS is well within average in relation to similar gas-powered backpack blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Shindaiwa EB910RT, with 1110 CFM, could be in your good books.
