Powered by a hi-tech 65.6cc X-Torq two-stroke petrol engine, and fitted with a comfortable padded harness and LowVib vibration dampening technology, the 570BTS is designed to ensure consistently superb performance even during prolonged periods of use.
The phrase “Autumn is coming…” simply doesn’t resonate with the same ancient menace as “Winter is coming…”, so you can see why George R. R. Martin chose the latter as a frequently uttered motto in Game of Thrones, but the advent of autumn will nevertheless prove foreboding for many. This is because, come autumn, trees, shrubs and bushes start to shed their foliage, leaving a carpet of damp, dead leaves wherever you look. Thankfully there is a solution to this, as Husqvarna’s 570BTS backpack leaf blower is a superbly powerful machine that will effortlessly clear leaves, dirt and litter from lawns, forecourts, pavements and anywhere else debris might gather. It’s also far more user-friendly than a dragon, even if it does have a similarly fearsome roar.
At the heart of this beast lies a precision engineered 65.6cc X-Torq® two-stroke petrol engine, enabling the 570BTS to produce a maximum in-pipe airflow of 21.8m³/?min at an incredible 105.6m/s. This exceptional pushing power is a result of the improved combustion afforded by Husqvarna’s X-Torq® technology, which also increases fuel efficiency by up to 20% and decreases particle emissions by up to 75%. As such, the 570BTS is optimised for extended periods of operation when dealing with tough commercial clearance work, with a high capacity 2.2 litre fuel tank further ensuring plenty of run time between fuel stops.
Just as important, however, especially when dealing with such power, is the 570BTS’s ergonomically designed backpack harness. Fitted with a padded hip belt and shoulder straps to ensure a secure and comfortable fit, this well ventilated and load-reducing harness distributes the 570BTS’s weight evenly to prevent strain during prolonged use, while an adjustable, soft-grip handle further ensures excellent comfort and complete control at all times. LowVib® vibration dampening technology, moreover, reduces the effect of engine vibration to prevent the onset of operator fatigue, so the 570BTS remains easy to use even when taking on the most challenging jobs.
Additional convenient features include a cruise control mode, which can be activated to ensure a steady fan speed, and an easy access primer bulb and recoil pull to help ensure hassle-free starting. A truly professional quality machine, the 570BTS also features a commercial grade air filter to ensure consistently excellent performance even when working for prolonged periods in a dusty environment, while the build quality is as exceptional as you’d expect of a Husqvarna machine. As such there are few better ways of keeping parks, country estates and pavements looking tidy all year round (not even in Westeros).
