I have had this blower for about a month and it has performed very well. My wife even used it and was surprised as to how easy it was to use.
It performs well and can move a large amount of leaves and small twigs with ease. It has literally saved me hours of time raking and bagging leaves.

My Husqvarna 350BT - Love It!!!!!
I am a guy who does not buy a lot of new equipment, I repair other people old equipment and use it as mine. This time I decide I wanted a backpack blower. I didn't think twice about what brand to buy - as I had such a good experience with my Husqvarna 353 Chainsaw. Like the title says, I Love this blower. Very powerful, easy to use - well balanced. Day one of ownership I used it to clear almost 1 1/2 acres of leafs from my yard.
If you are looking for a backpack blower - look no further!

A windstorm of a blower
The 350BT is a fantastic blower, I previously owned a handheld blower but that is just a toy compared to this backpack blower. It started right up after the second pull out of the box. I ordered the optional handle bar and flat nozzle, which I think should be standard features. I did all my leaves on 2 acres of property in one day. Its a windstorm of a blower.

BETTER THAN EXPECTED
I researched this purchase long and hard, and decided that the 350 BT was the blower that I wanted. An very happy with the performance of the unit, it makes moving the leaves "almost" fun. As others have said, the tubes are a little difficult it attach, even with lubricant. The plastic cuff around the swivel tube that holds the handle broke within the first 15 minutes...hope that this is a fluke. Contacted customer service and have a replacement on hand.

Packaging, Placement and Production
Although the 350BT does not have quite as much power as I expected compared to my 30 year old hand held unit it is quite adequate to blow the leaves farther back into the woods including those matted up half rotted clumps from last year.
There are a few things I was disappointed in shown next:
- The box does not have much in the way of material to prevent the blower shifting during shipping. The owner’s manual, sparkplug wrench and large hose clamp are in a plastic bag loose in the box. During shipping the box must have been stacked on its side. The bag must have been between the motor recoil starter and the side of the box. The hose clamp acted like a large cookie cutter, cut almost a complete circle out and through the owner’s manual along with 2 fairly deep gouges in the recoil housing.
- The placement of the carburetor’s fuel lines and primer bubble are poor. To pump the primer bubble you have to stick your finger between the 2 fuel lines next to where they connect to the carburetor. I suspect after a couple of years the fuel line(s) will be cracked and need replaced.
- The blast tube is an assembly of 3 sections. The belled end of the outer two is not sufficient to slide over the tapered end of the prior tube. I had to use a heat gun to soften the belled end enough to slide on and twist to lock. Of course to store the unit after use I would have to reheat the tubing to get it apart. I’ll find a way to store it assembled.
- The only other “con” I have is it would be nice if the pull start was in a position that allows restart without taking the backpack off.
In general I like the tool and it does an adequate job of cleaning the leaves from a large yard in the center of the woods.

Very happy customer
Based on the performance and reliability of my Rancher chain saw, I have also purchased 2 Husqvarna back-pack blowers and a trimmer.
The blower I purchased most recently, only confirms what I
have come to know as Husqvarna dependability and ease of use.
I have recommended Husqvarna tools to my friends and neighbors and will continue to do so.

I have recently had some cardiac issues and needed a light weight but powerful and easy to start machine. This is it, I like the three pull max to start it and it is light enough for me to use.
