Q: What's the difference between the BTS and the BFS MODELS
by Rich from Ohio on November 10, 2014

A: Rich - the only difference in these two units is the location of the throttle control lever. The "T" model has the throttle control mounted on the blower tube. The "F" model has the throttle control mounted on the frame. The tube mounted throttle control is the more popular of the two.
by Marissa, Product Expert
Q: Hello....What is the difference between this model and the the 580BFS model.
by Michael from Michigan on May 18, 2013

A: Michael,

The difference is in the mounting of the throttle. BTS means you are controlling the throttle at the tube and the BFS is controlled at the frame.

I found this backpack blower to be more powerful than other comparable sized units I have used. When I use this blower I spend less time on the job. It's a real time saver.

Husqvarna 580bts Rocks....love It!!!!
I have owed this blower for about two years, and couldn't be happier to own!! Starts up on 1 to 2 pulls every time. I can blow three foot of leaves with no effort at all!! It used to be a chore blowing all the leaves in my yard, in which we have a lot, and I don't mind doing it anymore!! If you have the right equipment, it pays to read reviews, and I couldn't be any happier with the purchase, I'm even going to buy another one for my crew to use.

It won't let me check the boxes I want to... more

Very Happy With This Purchase
We live on a 2 acre, heavily wooded lot that also includes a pretty large hill. Since I am in my mid 50's, we use a lawn care service for grass cutting. I don't have the time, space, or inclination to store, use, maintain, or invest in a commercial grade zero turn mower. I have owned a Husqvarna 125B hand-held for small jobs like blowing the porches, deck, and garage floor. It still works great after about 10 years, so I was a little biased toward this brand. I did consider and research... more

Air Cleaner
First of all, Let me say that the performance of the Husqvarna, compared to Stihl, is hands down way better. However, my air cleaner hold-down bolt kept falling off. The brass nurled piece would not stay in the plastic. Dirt got sucked in and it blew up in 2 weeks. Not good... maybe a fluke??? I hope so.

Most Powerful Blower On The Market Today
I'm a home user that was looking for the most power I could get in a blower as I have huge amounts of leaves to clean up in the fall.

After hours of reading as well as some real world use of a couple big backpack blowers I decided on this 580 BTS. I loved the power of the Redmax 8500 that I tested (Redmax 8500 is the same blower as the Husky 580) but I have no dealer support for Redmax in my area so I decided on the Husky version.

This is a serious blower, it's big, it's heavy, but it... more

Blower Power
This blower is fantastic, tremendous power. I have an Echo hand held which is a good blower but no comparison to this machine. Takes a while to get strapped in but it is worth it. Not sorry I bought the big one.

Awesome Blower Moves Lots Of Leaves Easily
Nice blower not to heavy for the size and power, works great makes life a lot easier, kind of a gas hog on full power but what would you expect from an engine this big. Started right up out of the box should last a long time.
