Solid and Plenty of Power

About Me Do-It-Yourself
Comments about HUSQVARNA 560BTS:
I own an acre lot with a home that is almost 100 years old, hence I have a lot of massive old tress around them. This was our first fall season in the house and almost over night all of our trees dropped their leaves. Our old house only had a Silver Maple whose leaves are quite lite. I had a 130 BT blower from the old house and while it was a great blower for those leaves it wasn't enough for the new house. Not only do we have a few large Oak, Pines, and Maples.... We have the a massive Ginko tree and the awful berries that they drop. The 560 BTS was not only able to move an entire pile of damp oak leaves, it was also able to blow the Ginko berries into nice piles. The 130 BT would have never been able to handle it. Yes, the 560 is a bit heavier than the homeowner grade ones but it is also twice the power! The 560 BTS (like all other Husqvarna Professional Products) is one solid built piece of equipment. Actually looking forward to fall every year now!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a great product.
Right out of the box this blower started up. It is more than enough to blow leaves and straw.

Able to do round 1 of my entire yard
I have to maintain about 2/3rd acre grassy area on a 3+acre heavily wooded lot, so we call this the "war of the leaves" each year. I previously had an Echo that could not move an entire leaf pile. Today it was too wet to use my Cyclone Rake (basically a giant leaf vacuum I attach to my tractor) so I tried this blower. Ran an entire tank of gas through it, about 2 hrs run time straight, completely blew all leaves off yard into woods. Only slightly sore in wrist and back. No issues, and extremely powerful. Harness very comfortable.

warranty upgrade for 560bts blower
from Old Town
On Feb. 15, 2015 I went on line and registered the blower. I send in copy of invoice for 3 cans of pre-mixed gas. This gas, Husqvarna said it would upgrade my warranty to 4 years.It is now March 19, 2014 and I have not received any word about my warranty. If they fail to upgrade my warranty I will not purchase another Husqvarna product.I called their customer service and talked to a person. They said they would check about my warranty and call me back. That was over two weeks ago and I have not hear from them.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: The pre-mixed gas had to be purchased at the same time the blower was purchased. Both items must be on the same receipt. If so, your warranty would be extended per the program. Retain you registration number for your confirmation number.

from Lawrenceville, VA
I own a Echo PB603 that is getting up in years and decided to get a new blower since leaf season is here. Went to my local dealer where I bought it and he has changed to carrying Husky's. Looked at specs and 350Bt seemed roughly equivalent so bought it. Carried it home and tried blowing piles I had blown with the Echo. No luck, too many pine needles that it didn't want to move. Went back and my dealer let me upgrade to the 560BT. All the difference in the world. My advice, don't just read the specs, try it out if possible before buying. 350 would have been ok if all I had were hardwood leaves to blow.

Good item, but........
from New York
Terrible manual, the worst. Seems to be a common problem as I purchased other tools and they either don't come with a manual or the print is so tiny you need others to possibly read it for you. However, it gets the job done! Storing is an issue. It should come with some type of hook-up.

Love this blower
from Little Rock
Can't believe it took me so long to invest in this. My cabin would be a sitting duck in the event of a wildfire, so the Forestry Service has encouraged me to keep all leaves blown at least 50 feet away from it. That sounded like a daunting task, especially since it had rained for days when I finally had a chance to go up there. I could not believe how easily this thing handled years' worth of wet, compacted leaves. It made the job quick, easy, and actually pretty enjoyable. Can't say a single bad thing about it. Haven't had it a terribly long time, but it fires right up every time I pull the cord and it just seems to be very solidly built.

Powerful and ergonomic blower. Comfortable shoulder straps
(9 of 9 customers found this review helpful)
This machine will far exceed any advanced homeowner who has challenging landscape tasks for cleanup.I has several properties with different elements for cleaning such as pine needles, red oaks leaves as well as maple. Works well on wet and dry removal.Another thing this blowers works well for is when if in your climate area you may have a light snow dusting cleanup is made simple instead of shoveling.I have other hand held blowers and a walk behind all purpose machine and this will eliminate the competition and even be the reason to also upgrade to a Husqvarna handheld blower because of it overall construction and durability.
Plenty of Power
This blower has plenty of power even to move wet leaves.
