Me and my dad have owned our own lawn/landscaping business and this blower is the best blower I have ever used! I have used many different commerical backpack blowers over the years and this one by far the the best. Tons of power to blow anything you need it to blow! Weight isn't to bad but you get used to it. This blower is ready to get the job done when you need it too! Won't let you down!

I have a 380 and love it. Just took it in for service and we'll I can't be without a blower so I bought the 580. I love this thing! Power, comfort, light weight and just BA. Husky keeps raising the bar! Sorry Stihl :(

Could lift a small landscaper off his feet.
The rest of the manufacturers have some catching up to do. This is by far the most powerful blower on the market right now. Everything about it from the straps to the suspension system to the silicone flex hose are all very high quality. Quieter than expected but not very fuel efficient- I guess that's to be expected as well. You do fatigue easilly with the dirrectional nozzle installed as well, buth there is a handlebar kit that I am going to purchase for it that should take some strain off my right elbow. Would reccomend to anybody that has to push a large amount of leaves without a wheeled blower.

I have a couple of acres to get the leaves off and this is a great blower for a big job

I've got the power
The 580 is very powerful and yet very light weight. You don't have to use full throttle to move leaves. When the leaves start to get thick, just give it the throttle and the leave just blow away. The only neg is it seems to require an extra pull or two and the motor vibrates a little.

Big, Bad, & Beautiful Blower!!
The 580 BTS is so awesome it will blow the leaves back on the trees!!! Unbelievable power and air flow.. it moves pretty much anything in front of the tube.. leaves, sticks, debris, the neighbors dog, etc. I've used other backpack blowers and nothing compares. It saves a ton of time by getting the job done much faster. And, it is surprisingly comfortable and easy to use, even for extended periods of time. I have operated this blower for 6 hours straight on a couple occasions and easily could have went 6 more. It is the Beast of the blower market as well as the best. I have 2.5 acres of yard in the country where leaves used to be a continuous problem. However, thanks to my new 580, this is a thing of the past. If you have a large yard, or need to move a lot of leaves regularly, and are looking for the best blower on the market, I strongly recommend the 580! Leaf blowing will never be easier or quicker. Thanks.
