It features an intuitive keypad on the throttle that lets you switch operating modes as well as check the battery status. The buttons on the keypad are large enough that even gloved hands shouldn’t have a problem with changing between continuous boost mode and cruise control.

Husqvarna also had the commercial landscaper in mind with the design. The 550iBTX includes a harness with thick shoulder straps that make all-day work more comfortable. Hip straps also help at redistributing the weight from your shoulders to your midsection. At the operator’s ear, the 550iBTX measures in a73 dB(A), a marked upgrade on a gas blower.
