Overview of the Husqvarna 590BTS

  • Power: The 590BTS gas-powered blower, manufactured by Husqvarna, is rated for a maximum air volume of 1245 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a maximum air speed of 216 miles per hour (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 26.2 lbs, the Husqvarna 590BTS is on the heavier side of gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Engine: Its X-Torq® engine boasts a displacement of 79.4cc. Given its 2-cycle design, it's essential to mix gasoline and oil correctly for the unit's engine. The proper fuel ratio set by the manufacturer for the 590BTS 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 590BTS to match it. On top of that, maintaining the selected speed is effortless, as it also features cruise control.
  • Noise: Its noise rating of 81 dB can be considered the standard for similar gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Fuel Tank: With a tank that can hold 91.3 fluid ounces, the 590BTS has a much higher fuel capacity than your typical gas backpack blower. 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.
