This unit is great for a homeowner with a lot with lots of landscaping and driveway to keep looking neat. I have only had unit for about 3 weeks, so can not speak to it's durability yet.
It starts on the first or second pull, and does a great job moving leaves and acorns off the drive and parking area.

Best leaf blower for the money
This leaf blower is a great purchase and a great value. I went from an electric leaf blower that took me all day to clean my yard to this back pack blower that only takes me a few hours to clean my yard. I would recommend anyone looking to purchase a leaf blower to pick one of these up.

Should have purchased long ago!
Have over an acre and all wooded. Thought that could get by with a hand held blower, but they never lasted and took forever to complete the yard. My neighbor had a 150BT and I borrowed it - instantly sold. Very comfortable, very powerful, relatively quiet and good time to gas use ratio. Went out and bought one immediately. It has been fantastic, and if as reliable as my Husq snowblower, I expect years of reliability.

This blower handles wet oak leaves with ease. It now takes only one hour what it used to take me 2 1/2-3 hours with a good handheld blower. It start on the first or second pull when cold and with one pull after it is warmed up. It is comfortable on the back and not tiring to wear or use.
The one feature that could be improved is adding something to hold onto when starting it, even a sticker indicating where to place the holding hand.

Great back pack blower
This was simple to assemble and straightforward to use. Put the first 5+ hours on my unit over the past couple of weekends. Easily moved all the leaves I had even those that were wet from recent rain. I highly recommend this unit!

Lightweight, powerful, and dependable. I bought The Husky because I've purchased other products and always been satisfied

This product is outstanding and just the right size for my .65 acre heavily wooded property. I found it a little difficult to assemble and the instructions were less than clear. Also, the manual described a primer button on the unit that was not there, which I found a little confusing. However, in the end, it starts easily and runs like crazy! It gets a little warm on your back, which I understand a more expensive model addresses with a ventilation space. Would be nice on this unit, too.

This blower is great! I got it about a month ago and love it so much I've been doing my neighbors yard to keep going. Even my wife wanted to used it last week... which might had sold three more of these units because I can't help but notice three neighbors went out and bought the same unit since she did that. I just did a little spray of WD-40 on the tube assembly, which they now suggest on the new assembly direction, and the tube slipped together and locked in place with no effort at all. Proof that they listen to their customers. If I could suggest Husqvarna one thing, it would be to add a step peddle so when I start it I can have a firm position of the unit instead of trying to hold it still with my other arm. Pretty simple thing that would make this great piece of equipment even better. If you haven't gone out and got one yet then seriously, stop waiting like I did, and just get it. You won't be sorry you did.
