    So i need a more powerful backpack blower. Check the Husqvarna one out i found:

    http://www.lowes.com/pd_192729-8688...ntURL=?Ns=p_product_price|1&page=1&facetInfo=

    For $300 it has 710CFM @ 251mph, Very impressive for the money. Thoughts?
    The best part is my local lowes stocks this, and if i want to return it, it will be easy. My current blower has 430cfm i think. This will be a huge improvement. Let me know what you guys think

    I have this blower and it's great. I never have had any problems with it for 4 years now. I believe I bought mine on sale or they have gone up, because I remember it being more like $200

    I have one and use it as a backup now, but nothing wrong with it. Great blower for the money.

    I read some good reviews on it, but just wanted to be sure before i spend my hard earned money.

    I have 2 of them. They are great blowers for the money. I am looking the 580bts, I believe.

    Your link pulls up a 150, not a 580.

    Their specs are wrong a 2014 150 is 494 @251mph

    The 570 is770cfm@236 mph
    Which one is $300 bucks and 710 cfm?
    Even in the housing specs are not 710 cfm
    I am confused.

    So what is the true output of the machine? It's more powerful than my ryobi backpack, and maybe i can get a redmaxx 8500 next year as an upgrade. And the 150 says it has 710 cfm. Is that in the housing or at the end of the nozzle where it matters?

    Actually looking at the 560BFS now. Not locally sold so would have to order online. For the price it seems like a good machine, it has 632CFFM instead of 500 and also a bigger engine. For $130 more is it worth it?
