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.

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

A Great Machine, Good Price
I bought the 580bts about 6 weeks ago and used it about 6 or 8 times so far. I blew about 3 inches of snow that was light and fluffy and it did a great job. Way better and faster than my old echo pb 602. The directions said it's not necessary to run it at full throttle.

That half throttle or so would be enough. I did not believe this but it is true. I have yet to run this thing at full throttle and with the 580 i move more leaves in less time with less effort than i ever could have with the... more

It's A Bigtime Backpack Blower
Works great, using it more than my snow blower in northern Michigan, Cleaning cars off and decks, paths, cant beat it. And the worst things for these is setting without using, so love it.

But my wife is not strong enough to pull it over when cold, I have less CC chain saws that have compression relays, wonder why this don't?
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality
Cons: needs compression release

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
