Buy This Blower!
I tried purchasing this blowing from every local store, they were all sold out. I finally found one in another state and picked it up immediately. Assembly is simple if you fully read the directions. You may need two people to assemble the nozzle assembly. Once it is fully assembled fill with 50:1 mixed fuel and prime till all air bubles are gone from the clear tube off the carb. Adjust the throttle to almost the lowest setting, chocke-on, and it should start on the second pull. This blower will blower almost anything you put in front of it without heavily consuming fuel. However, this is a large blower is meant for commercial use. Someone who has back problems or not very strong should consider a lower model. My previous was a 150BTS which is perfect for a homeowner who loves power equipment and the price is unbelievable for what you get. You will need ear plugs or headsets. I recommend the Husqvarna AM/FM headset which cutts out the blower noice and allows you to listen to the radio.

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.
