Husqvarna 530BT Backpack Leaf Blower

  • Product Details

    A spacious garden is one of life’s great luxuries, providing refuge from the hurly burly of modern life and a place where you can truly relax. The downside of this, of course, is that the larger your garden the more upkeep it requires, and many horticultural tools aimed at the domestic market are not suited to tackling the heavier workloads involved. Husqvarna, however, are a company with something for every occasion, and you’ll be glad to hear that the 530BT is a backpack blower designed specifically for use in large residential gardens.

    The key to tailoring a leaf blower to such circumstances is combining power, ergonomic design and convenience in one package, resulting in a machine which has the clout to take on large quantities of leaves, loose debris and dirt but which also allows you to work in comfort for longer periods. There are a number of ways in which the 530BT achieves this. Foremost is the sturdy backpack harness, featuring padded straps for added comfort and designed to prevent strain during prolonged periods of operation. Given that the 530BT only weighs 6.7kg to begin with this harness also helps ensure complete freedom of movement, which is spectacularly handy when working on uneven ground.

    Aside from the harness the 530BT also features a number of additional ergonomic features designed to further enhance ease of use. The cruise control mode, for example, allows you to set the desired fan speed at a steady rate without having to keep the throttle trigger manually depressed, while the blower tube’s length can also be adjusted to ensure optimal performance regardless of the situation at hand. All controls are also easily accessible, with a comfortable handle ensuring a secure grip and magnificent precision at all times.

    At the core of this impressive machine is a hi-tech 29.5cc X-Torq® two-stroke petrol engine, built with a design which reduces harmful exhaust emissions by up to 75% while increasing fuel efficiency by up to 20%. This makes the 530BT much more user-friendly than most comparable machines, while also cutting down on running costs by reducing fuel demands. This engine allows the 530BT to achieve a maximum airflow of up to 10.02m³/?min at speeds of 64.82m/s, providing enough pushing power to quickly clear loose leaves and dirt from lawns and hard surfaces. Built to ensure great durability and long lasting performance, the 530BT will thus allow you to patrol even the largest garden to your heart’s content, quickly clearing any loose leaf litter you encounter and ensuring a pleasingly tidy lawn. Most importantly, however, is that the 530BT’s ergonomic design means that you can do all of this in complete comfort, thus turning what could be a strenuous chore into a much more enjoyable experience.

    About Husqvarna
    Believe it or not, Husqvarna did not start off by manufacturing any type of garden machinery at all. Instead they were established in 1689 as a weapons foundry supplying the Swedish Armed Forces. During the subsequent years, diverse and varied products have been produced, from sewing machines and cast iron kitchen equipment through to bicycles and motorbikes. It wasn't until 1959 that Husqvarna finally made its first chainsaws and engine-driven lawnmowers. The company's reputation for build quality and durability of product has never been in question. This is probably the reason for their line of professional petrol chainsaws being so popular with forestry workers across the globe.

    Husqvarna are not afraid to innovate either, introducing the robotic, solar powered Automower® in 1995 and continually looking to improve their existing products by listening to their customers. Jumping onto the grass recycling bandwagon, they also manufacture some of the best mulching lawnmowers available, incorporating Bioclip® technology into the vast majority of their petrol lawn mowers. Be left in no doubt, if you buy any product from the Husqvarna garden machinery stable, you will be buying into Swedish quality that is built to last.
