excellent piece of equipment
Just bought the bt130 about 1 month ago. I absolutely love it. I am 53, female, with a bad back. I have an acre yard with over 100 oak trees. The leaves are a real pain. This little machine makes the work so much easier. I didn't do anything with my leaves this year until I got my new backpack BT130, I could hardly believe the ease of this little machine. I even let my next door neighbors son who is only 9 use it. He wanted one for his birthday. The only complaint I have is, they could include a narrower nozzle for the end of the blowing tube.
I could not believe the blowing power. It moves large amount of leaves, wet or dry. It even blows all of my little bitty acorns along with the leaves.
I have already recommended this to several other people.

Little Engine That Could
Perfect consumer grade backpack leaf blower! I believe I have received great value for my dollar and it has met my expectations. Blower has performed well for what I need it for (i.e. blowing leaves and debris in my yard), I find myself wishing for more power, but not sure if the extra dollars for the 150 would be justified. Very comfortable on my back and most importantly, it is light enough for my wife to use as well. I have used the blower 3X so far and am have not been disappointed.

This thing really blows! (And that's a compliment!)
This is my first gas powered blower and I love it! Very powerful and I rarely even have to use full throttle to blow leaves around. I also purchased the Husqvarna fuel, (can tell by the smell, it's basically race gas like I used to run in my road race motorcycles) and the thing starts easily every time, no trouble at all. I rode Husqvarna dirt bikes for years back in the 80's and the fit & finish, quality of materials, and performance is what I expect from Husqvarna, excellent! Only thing I wish for is that it would come with the flat nozzle attachment.

Seized up. Can it be fixed?
I forgot to put the correct gas/ oil mixture in and it just stopped now I can't pull the cord even after it has cooled off. I love this 130bt it's the best one I have ever owned . I'm so mad at myself. Does any one know if it can be fixed?

Seems to be very good although not as powerful as my
150BT. Needed because I now have a weight restriction due to kneck injury. The one thing Husqvarna needs to
look at is the middle tube will not fit together tight enough and you will have to tape with tape or pop rivet together.

Great Homeowner Blower
I needed a lite weight machine because my wife an I have bad backs so at under 15lbs this was great. The machine starts on the second or third pull every time and is quiet. The air volume is very good for the size of the unit and moves piles of leaves with no problem. The cruise control is nice but I would like to see a separate kill switch on future models because I keep turning off the motor when I throttle down off cruise control.

So far this has been a much better model than another brand it replaced. It is lightweight, starts easily, has great blowing power and is less noisy than my last one. I'm very pleased with the product and would recommend it to others. It was a very good value for the price.

Big Power/Small Package
This blower is awesome! The assembly was easier than I expected and the directions were simple to follow and make sure to use a lubricant ( WD-40 etc...) when assembling the blow tubes. The blower started on the the second pull! I made sure to mix the 2cycle oil with premium gasoline. The blower is lightweight which is good for me (bad back) and it really gets the job done!!!
