BackPack Blower questions ? New to Site

My Craftsman handheld died. Read lots of reviews and purchased a Husqvarna 150bt. This blower is three times more powerful than my old blower and was very comfortable in use. Problem was when I would build up large drifts or work around shrubs to push leaves into the woods I felt it was pushing the limits of the blower. Found a local dealer that has Husquvarna's on sale 560BT for $349.00 and 570BT for $429.00 both units have same motors, specs on both are close with the 570 a bit higher. Main differences seem to be air filters, 570 has a waist belt that i really liked on my
150 and padding is a little different. Has anyone used these blowers and do these prices seem good. Can you purchase a waist belt for the 560, Husky site does show belt can be purchased. Would appreciate any advice. Did not
have to deal with leaves in Florida just Gators in my back yard.

Thanks Ken
