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: What are the pros and cons of having the controls on the tube compared to having on the frame?

Is the Husqvarna built in China? I am concern of the quality of their products. My Husqvarna weed trimmer was made in China and I have had lots of problems...

by Paul from Massachusetts on June 01, 2014

A: Paul,

The switch control on professional models is strictly a preference issue. If you have used one or the other you may feel more comfortable with what you are familiar with. Since they don't make a backpack blower for lefties, many left-handers choose frame mounted controls located on the left side of the machine. Personally, I prefer the controls at the tube. It just feels better.

All of the backpack series are built here in the U.S., in Nashville, Arkansas. The engines are made in Japan for Husqvarna.

Better Then Redmax
As a professional landscaper, I've bought dozens and dozens of backpack blowers in the last 40 plus years. I started with Echo Redmax 7000 plus series. The Redmax (I own 8) have a very poor warranty policy. They always find a reason to not to fix the machine when it's under warranty. I switched to Husqvana blowers. They're cheaper, more reliable, and just as powerful as the Redmax.

Powerful & Light
I have a hill in the front of my house and a 9 hp walk behind blower that is very heavy. Last year I hurt my shoulder & foot pushing & pulling the blower up & down the hill.

I recently bought this backpack blower & am amazed at the power & lightness of the machine. It does everything I want it to do. I only wish I bought one a long time ago. I recommend it highly!

Great Product
My second identical blower. One for Maryland and the other for my house in Maine. Powerful, but light. Starts immediately. Had two back surgeries and this one is the most comfortable I have tried. Will buy another when the time comes.

Huski Backpack Blower
I bought this because I had used my nabors as my hand held was in the shop. The power was so much better I ordered a 560bts and some how PED sent me a bfs. witch is left hand control. Took some getting used to but all in all it is a great blower with lots of power. only wish it was right hand control.

Nice Leaf Blower!
I really like the blower for it's weight and easy starting. However, I would have liked to have had more speed.
