Overview of the Husqvarna 580BTS Mark III

The Husqvarna 580BTS Mark III in use

The Husqvarna 580BTS Mark III

  • Power: The 580BTS 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: 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 located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. Be aware that, at 26.8 lbs, the Husqvarna 580BTS Mark III is on the heavier side for gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Engine: Its X-Torq® engine boasts a displacement of 75.6 cc. Please note that, because the Husqvarna 580BTS Mark III's engine is a 2-cycle one, it runs on a mixture of oil and gasoline. According to Husqvarna, the proper fuel mixture ratio for this blower is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: To provide more control over their job to the user, the unit has a variable speed control setting. No matter the size of the job, the user can adjust the airflow of the Husqvarna 580BTS Mark III to match it. On top of that, maintaining the selected speed is effortless, as it also features cruise control.
  • Noise: As far as gas-powered backpack blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 106 dB.
  • Fuel Tank: With a tank that can hold 87.9 fluid ounces, this model has a much higher fuel capacity than your typical gas backpack blower.
  • 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 580BTS Mark III's performance versus other blowers

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

  • Forced air leaving this blower’s nozzle has been clocked at 220 MPH. That makes the 580BTS Mark III average in terms of air speed 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.
  • If air volume is an important feature, the 580BTS Mark III by Husqvarna will not disappoint. Its airflow maxes out at 1000 CFM (cubic feet per minute), which is more powerful than most gas-powered backpack blowers. If air volume is important to you, the Shindaiwa EB910RT, with 1110 CFM, could be in your good books.
