Overview of the Husqvarna 580BFS

The Husqvarna 580BFS in use

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: 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 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 blowers.
  • Engine: Its X-Torq® engine boasts a displacement of 75.6 cc. Please be aware that 2-cycle engines like this one require a mixture of gas and oil in order to run. For the Husqvarna 580BFS, this ratio is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: For those who wish to have complete control while operating their leaf blower, the 580BFS 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: With a decibel rating of 100 dB, the 580BFS is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered backpack category.
  • 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 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.
