Description

Increase your crews productivity with the powerful frame-mount Husqvarna 580BFS backpack blower. Designed with a larger fuel tank, a reliable 2-stroke engine and efficient fan design, tackle large jobs with fewer interruptions throughout the day.

Overview of the Husqvarna 580BFS Mark III

  • Power: The 580BFS Mark III, built by Husqvarna, is a gas-powered leaf blower capable of expelling a maximum air volume of 1000 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Its air speed is rated at 220 MPH.
  • Handling: As this unit is a backpack leaf blower, the majority of the unit is distributed so that the user can operate it with ease for most reasonable periods of use. Its throttle is hip-mounted, which can make it easier on your right hand if you operate it over an extended period of time. Be aware that, at 27.1 lbs, the Husqvarna 580BFS Mark III is on the heavier side of gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Engine: This blower is fitted with a 75.6cc X-Torq® engine. Since this is a 2-stroke engine, it’s important to remember that the 580BFS Mark III 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 580BFS Mark III 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 106 dB, the 580BFS Mark III is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered backpack category.
  • Fuel Tank: The fuel tank is well above average for a backpack blower – its capacity maxes out at 87.9 fl. oz. In fact, it is the biggest tank you'll find in our selection of gas backpack 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.

The Husqvarna 580BFS Mark III's performance versus other blowers

The following charts are provided to give you an idea how the key specs of the Husqvarna 580BFS Mark III compare with similar leaf blowers.

  • Upon exiting the nozzle, the air can reach speeds of up to 220 MPH, which is pretty much what is to be expected for gas-powered backpack blowers. If you wish to benefit from air expelled at the fastest possible speed, the Husqvarna 150BT and its 270 MPH could be an option to consider.
  • Regarding its air volume, the Husqvarna 580BFS Mark III boasts an impressive airflow that can reach 1000 CFM (Cubic Foot per Minute). This places it amongst the most powerful gas-powered backpack blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Echo PB-9010T, with 1110 CFM, could be in your good books.
