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.

Q: is the throttle on the tube part of all Husqvarna leaf blowers, I am looking at the 560bts? what does bts mean?
by Debra Vajcovec from Connecticut on November 14, 2013

A: Debra,

The throttle on the Husqvarna Backpack blowers can be found on either the tube or on the left side mounted to the frame.

Q: Hey Joe- I am needing a gas powered leaf blower with mulching capabilities that has great reviews. Possibly one that is a backpack. We have about 8 acres that will be covered in leaves soon, so we need a good solid leaf blower. price range $200-$350.
Thanks for your suggestions. Is shipping included ?

by Puma Stangl from Arizona on October 06, 2013

A: Puma,

Unfortunately we do not carry any back pack blowers that have any vacuum mulching capabilities.

I would recommend a walk behind leaf vacuum, but the price range is more in the $800-$1000 range.

If you have any further questions, always feel free to contact me directly at 800-710-7499 Ext. 133.

I'm always happy to help!

Leaf Blowers Direct Recommended

The Husqvarna 560BTS 65.6cc Backpack Blower delivers top of the line performance in a lightweight, compact package. Preferred by many lawn care pro's, this back pack blower will amaze you with its power.

With a 65.6cc, 2-cycle engine and a maximum air speed of 232mph, this unit is not only powerful, but it is surprisingly comfortable with specially designed padding and hip belt, the weight of the blower (about 23 pounds) is evenly distributed in such a way that you can use the blower for... more

Used it for the first time last weekend and did an excellent job. Very powerful, blew around some of the mulch until I got use to it. First backpack blower I have owned.

Nice Leaf Blower!!!
Very nice, quality machine! I've had several other cheap blowers which did not last. This one is clearly built to last. It's easy to setup and start. It's also not too heavy to get on or off of your back.
Pros: High Quality, Exceeded Expectations, Durable, Quiet
Cons: Price

Great Backpack Blower
Purchased for my yard of a bit more than one acre. I've used it several times and have found it effective and powerful. Pine needles, as with all blowers, are more difficult to move. I'm in my mid-60s and was a bit concerned about using a backpack model, but the weight is easy to handle and I put it on my back from the ground effortlessly.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Easy To Use

Excellent Blower
Coming from older Echo and Sthil blowers, this unit is a breath of fresh air. Lots of power, comfortable and surprisingly quiet for the performance level.

So far it starts first pull, runs clean and strong. I run Amsoil Saber @ 50:1 there is zero smoke. The tube throttle is effortless to control and the ability to hold the throttle at any rpm is one of the best features. I love not having to fight the tube to control it, it points where you want it with no fatigue. The unit is not... more

A Great Time-saver
Bought new home with one acre of lawn. Yard ends at the woods. Clearing the fall leaves with this blower has been a great time & energy saver versus using my lawn tractor. Highly suggest this model if you have a sizable yard area to clear. Easy to assemble out of the box & fired-up with no problems.
Pros: High Quality, Fast, Exceeded Expectations, Easy To Use
