My First Backpack Blower
The Husqvarna 150BT operates real smooth and usually doesn't require the choke for starting. I've purchased this machine about one month ago and have used it for the typical Spring yard clean up. The hand control and throttle assembly are great and very easy to use. I like the power it delivers when you goose the throttle and it seems to move almost everything you point the nozzle at. I will definitely put it to use come this Fall. This is when I'll see what it really can do against wet leaves, sticks and the usual Fall clean up. The harness shoulder straps are easy to adjust and slip into but the waist straps are a little difficult to keep straight for snapping together. Overall, I would say this machine is about a 9 out of 10.

Instructions not complete. Read other reviews and used some of there tips. Good blower has all the power for blowing leaves you will need. Little heavy but better than holding a blower in your hand for a couple of hours. Have a large yard surrounded by woods and there are a lot of leaves come fall this will defiantely do the job.

Affordable AND Durable Blowhard!
This blower is definitely a BLOWHARD! It has superb power, unbelievably quiet and is lightweight. The one thing that impresses me the most is how she starts...one pull and I NEVER have to snap pull or jerk the starter cord HARD. Just pull on the starter cord till she catches and then gently continue to pull and wala! Amazingly quiet compared to other top brands. My brother in law came out with me to learn "how to" my equipment and "learn the trade" including a Spring Clean Out...afterwards he grabbed my Husqvarna 150BT and fired it up. His very first comment was "Wow! This thing is so light AND quiet!" He also could not believe the POWER she had. He then asked "how much did you pay for this?" Husky's affordability simply AMAZES me! I'm so glad I chose to go with Husqvarna as my Landscaping Equipment Provider. I'm a brand new business this year (2012) and Cozy Hollow Landscaping and Firewood is DEFINITELY going "HUSKY ORANGE" across the board!

This blower was easy to assemble. It starts on the first or second pull and is very powerful. The padding is comfortable and the straps keep it secure on my back. I used a borrowed Husqvarna for some time and was so happy with it's performance that I went out and bought my own. I would highly recommend this product.

Mega Power That Can Move Wet Leaves
I love this blower! I've had several gas powered handhelds for over 30 years and now my arm does not get tired. This pushes leaves and stuff that was in my flower beds for years. I just wish I would have bought it sooner.
I'm not sure on durability, since I've only owned my blower for two months.
My only complaint is the pull cord is very short, so you have to start this unit by pulling in a short snapping motion, which takes a little getting used to.

Wow, what a powerful blower! Puts my old handheld (finally died after 10 yrs) to shame. Thought I would need a nozzle to concentrate air, but no need. Starts easy, runs quietly, easy to use.
