Smooth running 570 blower
I help my husband blow leaves from our yard in the Fall as we have many trees on our 1 acre lot. We blow them from once a week to every 2 to 3 days. I got the 570 because it was a little lighter than the 580 he got. It seems to work just as well as the 580, but it is much smoother running. I only weigh 140lbs and I am 5'7' tall and I find it very comfortable and easy to work with. To blow our yard together, it takes about 40 minutes and it doesn't tire me at all. It sure beats raking.

570BTS Back Pack Blower
Lots of power once you get it started. My particular model struggles to start no maatter how hard you pull the cord or how much you prime. I have followed the directions to the letter but this product is extremely hard to get started. Once started it is great ir performes well and has ample power.
One certainly needs a lot of arm power to get it started.

Great blower with plenty of power
I was looking for a quality, large 2 stroke BP blower, and this unit easily fit that description. Lots of power for any type of clean-up work. It moves leaves and most other yard debris of any kind with ease. On top of my customers, I have 20 trees on my own acre lot that are mainly oak and maple, plus I get a lot of the leaves off of several neighboring oaks, so I have lots of leaves to deal with in the fall. I handled them all this fall with this new blower, and enjoyed every minute of it. My only real complaint is the tube mounted throttle should have been mounted directly over the center of the tube instead of off to the side. Other than that, it is an awesome machine. The ease of checking the air filter is a plus. The ergonomic shoulder harness system with the chest strap is the best I have found so far, and I've used several name brand blowers over the years.
