Priced at around the $400 mark, the Husqvarna 560BTS doesn’t come cheap. However, it has a lot going for it – more so than any other backpack blower on the market. It’s comfortable, very powerful and well-designed, to name just a few of its strengths.
So while many people will undoubtedly be put off by the high price tag, once you put it through its paces and start to see how effective and efficient it is, you will see that the high price tag is justified.
The Husqvarna 560BTS is powerful, and I mean powerful. It features the same X-Torq engine as the 570BTS, which costs roughly $100 more, and can reach speeds of up to 236mph.
However, the 560BTS does not come with a cross clip on the harness or an additional handle on the hose, although many users have stated that the existing trigger is good enough for this not to pose a problem.
The engine has also been designed in an innovative way, as harmful exhaust emissions are reduced by up to 60% and fuel efficiency is increased by up to 20%.
High Vs Low Speed
The 560BTS works just as well on a high speed setting as it does on a low speed setting, which is something of a rarity for backpack blowers.
For example, it blows leaves several feet away with ease on a higher setting; and on a lower setting, the air flow is neither too powerful or too weak, which ensures that you can efficiently get the job done without any damage occurring when carrying out tasks that require more finesse.
The 560BTS (along with the Husqvarna 356BT) is one of the, if not the most, comfortable backpack blowers on the market, which is just as well when you consider its high price tag. It sits very comfortably on your back, whilst always being easy to maneuver, and yes, this holds true even when using the blower for extended periods of time.
The ergonomically designed handle further enhances comfort levels as, not only does it feature rubber inserts, but the handle can also be adjusted to fit the operator.
This backpack blower comes with a 2-year consumer warranty and a 1-year commercial warranty.
