Husqvarna 580BTS Backpack Leaf Blower

  • Product Details

    During the autumn there are only two real ways of making sure that lawns, pathways, forecourts and parks remain unsullied by a carpet of dead, damp leaf litter. One is to station a guard armed with a bucket under any offending trees, shrubs and bushes so as to catch leaves as soon as they fall. The second is a much more efficient and less resource intensive method, as it simply involves one person equipped with Husqvarna’s incredible 580BTS. This superbly powerful backpack mounted blower is the most potent in Husqvarna’s entire range, and thus ideal for all demanding commercial clearance jobs.

    We need look no further than the 580BTS’s magnificent 75.6cc X-Torq® two-stroke petrol engine to understand why this machine is quite so impressive. The most powerful engine in any of Husqvarna’s commercial grade backpack blowers, Husqvarna’s X-Torq® technology improves the combustion process to boost performance, increase fuel efficiency by up to 20%, and decrease particle emissions by up to 75%. This means that the 580BTS can outperform pretty much any leaf blower powered by a conventional two-stroke engine, while also remaining reassuringly user friendly. Equipped with a high capacity 2.6 litre fuel tank for an increased run time, the 580BTS also features a commercial grade air filter and a unique air-injection cleaning system to further ensure exceptional performance over prolonged periods of operation.

    None of this imposing clout comes at the expense of comfort or convenience, however, with the 580BTS’s ergonomically designed backpack harness working to distribute the weight of the engine evenly and thus prevent any risk of strain. Featuring a load-reducing hip belt and padded shoulder straps for pleasing comfort, the harness is complemented by the inclusion of a vibration dampening LowVib® system and an adjustable soft-grip handle on the Husqvarna leaf blower tube, each of which makes the 580BTS even more intuitive and comfortable to use. Similarly, handy little features such as the cruise control mode, along with the easy access recoil starter and primer bulb, mean that the 580BTS is just as user-friendly as it is stunningly powerful.

    Capable of achieving a magnificent maximum in-pipe airflow of 25.7m³/?min at an impressive 92.2m/s, the 580BTS’s effective fan design delivers more than enough pushing power to ensure the quick and efficient clearance of litter, dirt, loose debris and (most importantly) dead leaves with the bare minimum of effort. Moreover, with the support provided by the backpack harness and the sturdy build characteristic of Husqvarna machinery, this outstanding blower is also perfect for use in dusty, hostile environments and on rough or uneven ground. When it comes to the toughest commercial clearance work, then, or simply if you want a magnificently effective way of keeping large areas of lawn free from leaves and litter, the 580BTS is definitely the machine you need.

    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.
