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 Dale, 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.

The Beast
Not much more to say than has been covered in other reviews. I have had another identical blower for several years and yes I can attest to the fact that it (quite efficiently) will move 3/4 inch crushed stone and it will indeed lift the sod from your lawn if you are not careful.

The only gripe I have is the prosumer-unfriendly carburetor which is in adjustable with normal tools. This is a shameless move by Husqvarna to push customers to their dealer network for routine / pedestrian... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations, Features, Durable
Cons: Expensive, Lacks ubiquitous carb adjustments which should be there.

Had the Husqvarna 350BT and wanted something a little more powerful. This machine is a BEAST. Did hours of research before buying and I am happy that I did!

Very Good Product
I upgraded from a 560 and the power difference is outstanding. My only con - the 560 starts with two pulls and the 580 takes 7/8 pulls.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Durable, Reliable
Cons: Hard to start!

Amazing Blower
This blower is amazing. It has tremendous power. I was pushing 30" high piles of leaves without much of a problem. I am 52 years old and I used it for about 3 hours straight and didn't experience any shoulder or back fatigue. I thought the instructions were a bit lacking, they didn't even mention the choke or primer bulb in the starting instructions. I just got it this fall, so I can't evaluate it's durability but so far I am very impressed. My son likes using also, another plus.
Pros: Easy To Use, Features
Cons: None

Wow Amazing
This backpack blower went beyond my expectations.
It not only blows the leaves, but sticks, walnuts, and everything else.
I had a lot of wet leaves near a rock wall, this blower launched them with one pass.
What used to take 4 hrs to do our back yard and side yards, now takes less than an hr.
A little thirsty on the fuel side but well worth it by far.
Pros: High Quality, Exceeded Expectations, Fast, Reliable
Cons: None

Great Blower
This replaces a 25 year old Stihl BR400. This machine is more powerful, but also a bit more heavy. Overall good choice for large yards and lots of leaves.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Heavy

Super Leaf Blower
I have only had the leaf blower for a couple of weeks, but so far it works great, has tons of power and no issues. In putting it together I made the mistake of assembling some of the tube sections 'dry' before reading the instructions, only to have to take them apart again, which was difficult (because I didn't read the instructions about lubricating the sections first). My mistake, don't make the same one! Using it so far has been pretty effortless, I love the tube mounted throttle control... more

An Alternate Reality
No blower, hand-held or backpack type, compares with the 580. Momentum (CFM) makes the difference. I have been moving industrial strength leaves for 40 years, with great effort, and now, with the 580 I have the upper hand. The work which took all day, is now done in slightly more than 1 hour. The 580 is like stepping into another universe.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: None
