WOW!Upgradeded to this blower from the 130BT 2 years ago. The 130BT was a great blower, it was just not big enough for my land and abundance of trees.Unbelievable power! Starts like a champ every single time! I was leery about spending so much for a leaf blower but ever since the first use I have NEVER regretted it. This blower will blow anything in its path.Wet leaves? No Problem.Wet Grass? What Grass?Sticks, twigs, acorns? Where'd they go?At full throttle I have to brace myself because it unleashed a tornado of air!All joking aside though this is probably the best purchase that I have made for my yard work. I use it every week from April to October. I even used it twice this winter to blow the snow off of my 300' long driveway!At idle speed there is just the right amount of air to blow the grass clippings out of the flower beds without doing any damage and at full throttle I can launch leaves 20' into the woods when I need to.

Unbelivable power and is the most powerful blower I own. Great for fall cleanups.Bought new and used for 2 months. Bolts for the engine fell out and cracked block. In the shop for 7 weeks waiting on warranty authorizations and back ordered parts. I use this for my business and this defect has cost hundreds of lost revenue. My whole fleet is husqvarna and im thinking of going to stihl.

I've had this blower for four years. I live in the middle of a big woods and leaf cleanup here would be a big problem without this blower. The 580BTS replaced the other orange competitors model which would do the job, but it struggled with this many leaves. This Husqvarna blower absolutely overpowers massive piles of leaves, and it doesn't much matter if they're wet or dry. It blows sticks, branches, acorns, Black Walnuts, Hickory nuts, and anything else that's in the way, and it's made my life a lot easier. If you've got a problem with leaves, this is your solution. I use this blower almost weekly all summer long and it's especially useful after a windstorm to move thousands of sticks and small branches that come down, but it really earns its keep during the Fall.
About Me Professional
I researched blowers for a long time. I wanted a beast of a backpack blower. This machine is that. I purchased it from the local dealer and took it home. I was surprised how many pulls it took to start. I called the dealer after a week using it and having to pull as many as 16 times to get it to start. They checked it out and said the coil was weak. They replaced it and I was on my way. However the starting issue was the same. I took it back to the dealer cold and asked them to start it. They were unable to start it. I showed them how I started it and was able to get it running. I'm a big strong guy and the dealer wasn't able to yank it over as fast as I could. They then replaced my blower with another unit. The new unit starts as bad as the other one. I called another dealer that basically sells all brands and they said they would change the plug. They said it's not like an Echo or Steel ( they won't slow the proper spelling) that they could adjust the carburetor. They said it acts like it's lean but they can't change it. I took it to yet another dealer and was told sorry they couldn't get it any better. I put it on Craigslist 30 days after purchasing it and sold it. Lots of power.....but if it takes 16 pulls to start when new what will that be when it's 2 years old? Too bad, once it was running it worked great.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This thing blows away.... and is very versatile to use.
from Rochester, Mi
I purchased this blower since I have a 5000 square meter yard to take care about and have to blow snow in winter for about halv a mile. Before buying this unit I did a comparison between serveral Husqbvarna units. My main argument is the air volume this blower has with about 26 m3/min compared to a smaller 130 BT. Since the yard is large and the driveway is long I needed something for fast working.This blower is with 26 Pounds not a light weight one, but very comfortable to carry with the well padded harnest. The waist strap makes it even more comfortable. I run the unit with akylat gas (Ethanol free) to keep the carburator and fuel lines clean.Starting of the unit is very easy: Cold engine, trigger the choke and prime. Pull once, the engine wants to start. Put the carburatror on halv and pull again. The engine will start now and put the choke back to zero position. The force rerquired to pull is quite easy for the big engine. After starting I let the engin run warm about a minute.I like the sideways mounted handle which the user can tilt until a convenient position is reached. My right arm just moves the hose which is very easy. Then the throtte trigger is fixed and I can focus on blowing. No hassle here.The blower unit and the harnest are not directly connected, antivibration. So just very Little vibration is transmitted to the Body. This makes it very comfortable to carry the unit over hours.This blower is good for blowing- leaves- dry grass- snow Apart from all features I like, the gas consumption is not small. This is a 75 ccm engine in duty! I am not complaining, I was very much aware about this. Power counts!

A Sound Decision!!
from Kettering Ohio
About Me Novice
After a ton of research and hours of painful video reviews, all arrows pointed straight to the 580BTS and now as a mere home owner, this is my choice. I don't even have a big yard but I have 3 trees and some surrounding trees from neighbors that the piles of leaves are no joke and I spend a lot of time getting these leaves from the backyard out to the curb and I decided it was time for a backpack blower. I have been using the BG86C hand held for 3 years and while it is a great little blower, it is just that..a little blower, so the hunt began for more power and I was told about some walk behinds but I found that idea just too hard to maneuver in my small yard. I also considered another hand held to operate 2 at the same time, but that idea was quickly squashed. As a Still owner, of course I went straight to asking what their top of the line model was and found the BR700 and the 700x. Also learned that both of these models are relatively new to the market, so that was a little but of a red flag to me. I spoke with several mechanics that actually work on both and 98% of which steered me towards the Husky. After using the 580 BTS I am more than happy with the decision and would recommend it to a friend or family member. Thanks Huskvarna for a great product! Oh yeah..this thing is a tornado!

It will blow you away.
from Layton, Utah
Make sure you get the flat nozzle attachment with it. It turns this machine into the monster it should be.
GREAT BUY FOR LARGE AMOUNT OF LEAVES
from Detroit, MI
I use this blower for some serious leaf cleanup in my yard. I have 22 oak trees on my property and it is surrounded by timber. I get leaf piles several feet tall and 100' long. This blower moves them no problem even when they are wet. Blower is worth every penny and you will clean up your yard in 1/4 the usual time. The only issue I have had is the starting but once you figure out the choke to temp ratio its pretty easy.
