Overview of the Husqvarna 580BFS

  • Power: The 580BFS gas-powered blower, manufactured by Husqvarna, is rated for a max air volume of 908 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a max air speed of 209 MPH.
  • 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. Be aware that, at 25.8 lbs, the Husqvarna 580BFS is on the heavier side for gas-powered backpack leaf blowers.
  • Engine: Its X-Torq® engine boasts a displacement of 75.6 cc. As you may or may not know, 2-stroke engines require a mixture of gasoline and oil in order to keep all the moving parts lubricated while fuelling the engine’s internal combustion. The fuel/oil ratio recommended by Husqvarna for the 580BFS is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: In order to afford more control to the user, this unit has a variable speed control. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the Husqvarna 580BFS to match.
  • Noise: The noise emitted by the Husqvarna 580BFS can reach up to 112 dB. Its noise rating is on the higher end compared to other gas-powered backpack leaf blowers. In fact, it is the noisiest of them.
  • Fuel Tank: The fuel tank is well above average – its capacity maxes out at 87.9 fl. oz. In fact, it is the biggest tank you'll find in our selection of 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.
