My old faithful 125bt died today. I have a 3 man crew. The 125 was my first backpack blower that I bought for my house 7 years ago!!!!! I replaced the old girl with the 150BT. Very powerful I was going to get a Stihl but for the price I could not beat it. I do own a Stihl 500, and 430. The 500 is heavy and has a little more power Buuuut.........The Husqvarna equipment in my inventory keeps running !!!!

Husqvarna is the best.
This was my first Husqvarna purchase and it lives up to the all the hype I've heard about them. Amazing quality. This blower is so smooth and powerful. I love using it.

Excellent blower with plenty of power.
Great product, much better than the Poulan that I used before. I really like the ability to vary the speed or set it at any given speed and not have to squeeze the throttle. Only drawback, it is a little ackward to start.

love this blower
Small yard with 6000 sf of concrete and 3 large magnolia trees. Clean up with backpack much quicker and more confortable than old hand held. Wish I had purchased several years ago.

This Husqvarna 150BT is outstanding! Easy to assemble… anyone claiming it takes more than 10 minutes should have someone else do it for them. Tubes ARE NOT hard to connect together… just spray a small amount of WD40 on them and they go together easily. Some naysayers in regard to this blower starting... started on the 2nd pull out of the box… probably would have started the 1st time, but my hand slipped off the starter rope handle. I had a Datsun (Nissan for you younger ones) when I was a kid. It had a manual pull choke knob on it to start it. If you didn’t know to pull it out to start it, the car would not start and run. It started 1st time every time when you followed instructions. In many ways this better than the automatic choke they put on carburetors… less to malfunction. On the Husqvarna… turn the handle switch to on, turn the cruise control throttle switch to 1/3 on, put the choke on full, push the primer bulb 10 times; do that and it starts. Lots of power with this unit. Replaces a Poulan Pro hand held I hand which was claimed to blow at 200 mph. It worked for 10 years, but never had the power to move piles of fall leaves. This unit is very powerful… 251 mph. and moves over 700 cf of air per minute. Moves leaves, grass, stones and debris fast! Easy to wear and carry with my bad back… actually helps me stand up straighter. Much less noise than my hand held Poulan… maybe 40% less and no high pitch whining the Poulan made. Can actually use without hearing protection. Runs over an hour on a full tank of fuel. Runs smooth and little vibration. Great build, design and function… engineering was really thought through. Appear very durable. Very impressed with this unit. Did I say outstanding? Highly recommended! Buy this one instead of the new CARB compliant 350. The 150BT has more power and air speed.
