Description

Overview of the Husqvarna 560BFS

  • Power: The 560BFS, built by Husqvarna, is a gas-powered leaf blower capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 631 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Its air speed is rated at 232 MPH.
  • Handling: This blower’s backpack functionality makes make it less exerting on the user, even when used for an extended period of time. However, for a gas-powered backpack blower, the Husqvarna 560BFS is heavier than most, weighing 23.37 lbs.
  • Engine: Its X-Torq® engine boasts a displacement 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 (see your user’s manual for details).
  • Speed Settings: Sometimes you just need a little more power, while other times you may want a little more precision when moving leaves and debris. That’s why the 560BFS features variable speed settings for added control.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 111 dB, the 560BFS is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered backpack category.
  • Fuel Tank: With a capacity of 74.4 fl. oz., this Husqvarna blower is average when compared to other gas-powered backpack leaf blowers.
  • 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.
