The blower starts real easy, usually takes one pull. The throttle is excellent. The blower gets heavy after a while and works on the shoulders some. I've adjusted the straps for a better fit and hope that helps.

Being in construction my whole life,I can assure you that Husqvarna is a durable,and reliable product. Had hand held blowers before I bought this one,and it's easy to use and Clears the leaves in minutes,instead of almost an hour. Starts great,quiet,and powerful.

Husqvarna 350BT Leaf Blower
I'm very impressed and satisfied with my purchase of this Leaf Blower. Assembly was minimal and easy. Equally operation setup and operation was a breeze. I have two acres and very large oak trees and clean up was fun and took 1/10th the time it would normally take me and the leaves were wet. I also use it to blow out the barn, shop, rain gutters and house porches. This is the fourth Husqvarna product I've purchased in the last five years, to include my Garden Tractor, Chainsaw & Push Mower. I'm rating them all as a 5 and just wish they had a wood splitter available last year when I had to purchase one.

Overall a great blower, only wish it had a little more power! Just bought about a month ago, so I cant comment on the dependability but Im impressed thus far!

Durable Product with Good Power
I've used several blowers and this is one of my favorites. The power to weight ratio is good and the price for a blower with these similar specs is right on par. As far as durability these seem to last a long time, many hours of use and not bad on fuel consumption.

A real time saver
Finially I've recovered time in the yard during the fall. Now...If I could only find that place to blow them to so my neighbors not so mad. Lol! Seriously this machine has been a huge time saver for me. Before I had this blower I seldom had the time to keep up with all the leaves. Now a quick blowing before I mow to move leaves away from the house, my usual mow, and then a tidy up blow. I save atleast 50% of my previous blowing times. I wish I would have invested in a backpack blower sooner. Quality tools are an investment I'm willing to make whenever possible. I love this tool! But, I do have a negative comment to mention as well. I need to remove blower tube extensions for my prefered storage. The lightweight ext. tube flexability, the swivel of the blow tube, and the fact that I only have two hands to hold, grip, twist and turn, can be very frustrating more often then not.
Not a deal breaker. But, a friendlier design for removal would have iced the cake for me.
