Blowers come in many shapes and sizes depending on the job at hand. When you hear the brand Husqvarna what is the first thing that comes to mind? Never heard of Husqvarna? Just ask any landscape pro, they use Husqvarna. Durability, performance and comfort is what sets the 570BTS apart from other blowers.
Manufacturer – Husqvarna
Model -570BTS Commercial Back Pack Blower
The 570BTS dominates its price class. The unit comes almost fully assembled, we had to put the blower arm, nozzle and trigger on. It was a relatively simple task, the nozzle twists and interlocks with each other to prevent separation. We found it a bit easier to lock them together wearing rubber gloves for grip.
The unit is well engineered and almost vibration free. This is largely in part due to the energy absorbing motor mounts that go between the motor and the backpack frame. There is a handle on the top for easy transport. The harness looks more like something from a race car than a blower. It has ergonomic ventilated padding and is designed to reduce user fatigue when operating the 24.5 lb blower. It is powered by a 2 cycle 65.6 cc X-Torq engine that reduces harmful exhaust emissions by up to 60% and increases fuel efficiency by up to 20%. The mixture is 50:1 and has a huge 74.4 fl oz gas tank for extended run time. The unit has a choke and air purge for easy start. It also has cutoff ,throttle and cruise control on the handle. At the top of the blower is a easy to change air filter.
One thing we noticed right away was how easy it is to control the blower. Most blowers want to fight you, but the 570BTS was smooth and easy to direct the air where you need to. The handle is offset to the side which allows for better, comfortable control. We used it to blow leaves and mulch. It had so much power that it could move larger gravel! Yes, we had a rock driveway and used it to blow the rocks from the grass back onto to the driveway. 4hp produces 770CFM in the pipe and 236mph at the tip. Power was smooth and strong. Husqvarna has really impressed me with the 570BTS. So if you’re the guy on the block who wants the best of everything or the landscaping contractor that needs to invest in a powerful, reliable back pack blower, the Husqvarna 570BTS is highly recommended and Husqvarna covers this product with 2 year warranty.
