One bad blower!
I didn't intend on spending $400+ on a blower. I thought my old Husky was great but after 15 years it had had enough. I intended to buy the same thing until the sales lady started telling me the difference between the "Boxstore" huskys and the professional models. After trying it out I could not believe the difference. This thing really blows!!! In a good way! I'm so glad I took the time to listen. Give it a try and you won't walk away!

I love my 570 BTS, it's more than I expected. However, this is my 3rd Husqvarna tool and this one is kind of hard starting. Oil / fuel mixture is right on but I had to use starter fluid on the 3rd day of use.

landscaper using bts570 commercially
I make a living using these blowers. Since they bought out redmax. These blowers are the standard for commercial back pack blowers. In my opinion these are the most powerful and comfortable. And the price is far below competitiors. Best bang for the buck. Can handle any size property.

Gets the job done, and how!!
We have just shy of 1 acre and had been struggling along every fall with a mediocre electric hand held blower and rakes for several years. This year we were finally ready to upgrade. I am not getting any younger and wasn't interested in holding and swinging around a more capable hand held. Plus, I wanted the extra power from a back pack.
After some diligent research, the consistently good reviews of the husqy blowers narrowed it down by brand. Then I had originally decided to go with the 560, but not having used a back pack blower before I wanted to try one on first. So, off to my local, trusted independent dealer I went. I slung it on at the dealer and while it settled confidently in place we just couldn't get it adjusted to where it felt comfortable on me. They had the 570 and I tried that on to compare fit. I was sold. The strap/harness design is different than the 560's and it made the decision to spend the extra money easy. The better filter, vibration isolation and more power were a bonus.
Now to performance: The worst culprit of our leaf chore is 5 large maple trees that blanket our yard when they drop their leaves. This puppy does a fantastic job. Starts easily, sits on the back and shoulders nicely and turned what had previously been most of a fall day's of work into just over 1 hour of much easier work. Quickly makes a pile of leaves our two boys and two dogs have great fun in.
The wife and I both use it and are very happy with our purchase. And while this commercial product may be a bit of overkill for our yard, we have no regrets.

THE BEST BACKPACK BLOWER I HAVE EVER OWNED!
I have owned and worn out 3 Sthil Backpack blowers over the last 15 years. They have been very good, but none of them compare to the performance, power or comfort of my new Husqvarna 570BTS. The harness is fully adjustable and properly padded making it a pleasure to use. The extra large fuel cell allows me to complete all of my jobs without the need to stop and refuel. The power and volume of air produced allows me to finish all of my jobs in half the time that I used to spend. I highly recommend this product to anyone that is looking for the best. It's a little pricey but worth the extra cost.

Exceeded my Expectations
After my blower of 10 years finally quit, I went to my favorite home improvement store (Lowes) to purchase a new one. I looked over their entire selection and decided to go with the Husqvarna 570BTS,my previous blower was a hand held model. This blower is so powerful and easy to use, set up was a breeze and makes my 1 acre lot much easier to maintain. Unfortunately I don't get a chance to use it very often because my wife uses it all the time.
