Better than Competitor
Spent a little extra money to purchase the Husqvarna Backpack after trying two other competitors, and have absolutely no regrets with my decision.

Very happy with this Blower
The blower was easy to put together, and starts on first pull everytime. I think it was a great price

Great Blower for the money
This is a great blower. I love that it is not as loud as other blowers. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a backpack blower..

Good with Some Flaws
Good weight, power and reliable starting. However,the bulb to prime is in a difficult to reach spot and the shoulder straps are difficult to adjust and need more padding

Impressed with Husqvarna products
I've never owned a Husqvarna product before.
I was apart of a relief effort to clear felled trees from the tornadoes that ravaged properties as they went through AL and TN back in April 2011.
I learned that one of the relief workers, John, from my area would volunteer to cut trees each winter to split wood for those who needed help with heating their homes by wood. John choose Husqvarna for all his cutting needs. He didn't own just 1 Husqvarna chainsaw, but 6 of them ranging from small to huge.
John was one of these volunteer relief workers to clear felled trees down in Chattanooga TN back in April 2011. He brought his 6 Husqvarna chainsaws.
I was impressed with how well those Husqvarna chainsaws ran. Tank after tank, they ran ALL day long without a problem.
So when it was time to get a gas powered blower, I choose Husqvarna because of how those Husqvarna chainsaws performed in Chattanooga that April day. Plus, John had a lot of good things to say about Husqvarna.
My neighbor owns a backpack blower. During winter when it snowed, I used my handheld blower to clear snow while my neighbor used his backpack blower. His could move more snow than my handheld. So I was interested in getting a backpack model that performed as well as his. This 150BT does an amazing job at clearing wet leaves and debris my handheld would only dream about. This backpack blower cuts down the time it takes to clear clippings and debris after a mowing. It has the power to move the material up and out of the way.
I am really happy with this backpack blower and hope it performs as well as those chainsaw did for a long time to come.

This unit provides great power at a resonable cost. It starts quickly and is comfortable to wear. My yard is typical with the usual grass clippings and leaf clutter. Looking forward to this fall so I can put to the real test.

Lots of ease for lots of trees
My TB hand held quit in its second season. Now I have a big guy that's easy to operate, and feels good on my back. I'll be loading over 120 large leaf bags this fall, and my neighbors won't feel quite so sorry for me. Most of them have the same or similar unit and they praise them. We might even have leaf parties instead of pity parties.

Was concerned at first about going to a commercial back pack blower for home use. After the purchase the assembly was easy and the initial start up was immediate. After warming it up and using it I wondered why it took me so long to buy one. My blower time in the yard now only takes a third of the time as compared to a hand held unit.
