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.

I bought this backpack blower as I was tired of using the handheld blowers. My neighbor always liked Husqvarna products.
I decided to buy a Husqvarna and i'm glad I did. Its very powerful. Takes less time to do the leaves. I even used it to the blow the leaves when it was a light rain and it worked just as good as it did when it was dry out. VERY IMPRESSED!!
I think my neighbors are jealous that I am done in half the time they are.

Great blower for a large property
The 350 BT is exactly what I was looking for...powerful enough to do the job of removing leaves, pine needles and debris on a rather large property but light enough for a 70 year old to carry around. Easy to start and handle and I only wish I had discovered it much sooner. I also have a Husqvarna made mower from Sears and it too is a great performer. I will say I'm now a big Husqvarna fan and while I haven't told my wife, I'm looking at a chainsaw down the road. Believe me, you won't be disappointed !

bought this about 1 month ago and have used it 3 times. Starts easily, good power.
Harness is a little difficult especially if you have a bad shoulder. Tubes are difficult to remove once installed.
Bought the flat end tube but haven't tried it yet
