Everything I expected...
The 150BT is everything I bought it for. It has great clearing power, it runs great, its easy to maintain, and is very manageable. I would def. recommend this blower!

Good blower for homeowner
I like the blower it's light and pretty powerful. I expected a little more power from a $300 blower though, but still blows the competition away in the same price range! I would buy another one. Compared to others I looked at the comfort and features were much better with this blower. I wish it came with a gutter clean out kit or one extra extension tube it would make a few projects like cleaning my pool cage easier. I might have bought a more powerful model if Lowes had sold one, but this blower does everything I need it to. It works great on all my pine needles.

very good blower
It is everything I hoped it would be. Starts on the first pull just about every time. It even handles wet heavy leaves great jod.

I own a 1 acre property and decided it was time to upgrade my leaf blower. Read reviews and picked this one due to its ratings and price compared to comparable backpack blowers. I have only used it a few times so I can not comment on durability yet. Power is exceptional, saved me hours while cleaning up this winter's leaf droppings. Also takes half the time as my previous gas handheld for normal landscape maintenance.

This thing blows like the dickens!
I toiled in the yard for years with an underpowered Homelite backpack blower until it got really tired and needed to be replaced. I really need a leaf blower because I live across the street from a house with a number of apple trees and the prevailing winds blow the leaves from my neighbors house onto my lawn all year long.
After doing some research on the web, I saw enough evidence that the Husqvarna 150 BT was a great machine for the typical homeowner wanting a bit more professional power from yard equipment. This unit doesn't disappoint. It's easy to start, comfortable to wear and blows like the dickens, but very quietly. I can listen to my Adam Carolla podcasts while working with the 150 BT without having to blast the volume.
Do yourself a favor and get this great machine from Husqvarna.

This blower is exactly what I should have bought years ago. It is fairly quiet and does a great job of blowing leaves, debris and even pine straw! The few times I have used it starts very easily. I look forward to using it this summer and really putting it through its paces.
It was a little hard to put some of the pipes together, but I used a little lubricant (vaseline) and they went right together.

Great piece of equipment
So far this has been a great piece of equipment. Cranks first time, runs great and I have not encountered any problems yet.

Wanna blow some leaves?!
This unit will do it. Compared to another manf. that was $50 less and about 70 MPH less blowing cap. this thing was great.
However it needs a 45 degree attachment for the nozzle. It weighs roughly 24 - 25 lbs. with gas, but not too bad.
I love this compared to any of the 3 handheld unit I have!
