For some time, I fought with brand-x handheld blowers. I'm not sure what tired my arms out more; holding it out at an uncomfortable angle or the 25 dead-pull attempts to start them up. My new 130BT is light years ahead of all of them. It starts great, runs great, and very comfortable to use... Im totally delighted with it! I live in Michigan, and it is powerful enough to clear the many light snow falls without hauling out the 2-stage all the time. Great product.

I was amazed at how quiet and powerful this lightweight blower is.
This my third backpack blower and it is the best!

Get it Done
Great blower for the money. Easy to put together and started on the 2nd pull right out the box and ever since.
My 13 yr old daughter says it's fun to use. Thats a plus right there to get help from your kid in the yard. It blows just about anything you will need it to even wet leaves on you patio that have kinda piled up next to your house.

feels kinda cheap
handle is somewhat in a bad position. needs to be more like stihl backpack blowers...stihl feels more solid and will stick with stihl products going forward. i tried husqvarna and now i know better

I do landscape work and wanted something with some power yet light enough my daughter could use it while helping me. It does well for its size and is fairly easy for her to start on her own. I think having a choke and a primer bulb are a little redundant, but what ever it takes to get it going I guess. We seem to have to choke it to start it each time even with only having it shut down for less than an hour. Otherwise it seems to be working out well for us/her.

this product starts everytime and is working like a charm
easily used even for the novice; light weight but heavy performance; would recommend - great buy for the price
