"MSRP is $499. Do they typically sell for less? "
Not in my experience. You may be able to buy one for less online, but I can't even say for sure on that. Besides, I prefer to buy from the same place that I would go to if I need service for anything.
I've used my 570 for just over a year, and it is an extemelt impressive blower, especially one you get it broken in good, which takes a few tanks of fuel at a minimum to do. I use Amsoil Saber mixed at 80:1 in all my hand held power tools except for my chainsaws (Saber is rated for 100:1 mixing), and I couldn't be happier with it in the Husky.
