The Husqvarna BT works well and is fairly fuel efficient. It has plenty of power, and isn't too loud (with ear protection). I sometimes have difficulty getting it started, but that hasn't been a persistent problem. It works far better than the previous electrical leaf blower I had, and I'm glad we purchased this. The backpack part of it makes it very easy to use, and it feels very light on the back. Assembling it was easy except for the nose, which was very tight and difficult. I was glad the assembly was over once it was done. Overall I'd recommend this product for anyone who wants to blow their leaves instead of hiring a service. A good way to get it done relatively quickly.

I don't normally write reviews but decided to after using this blower. I replaced an older Echo and all I can say is Wow! This machine is quiet and runs with no vibration. But the most impressive feature is the power of the air blast. It will blow even small rocks and limbs with ease. This is the first blower that I have used that can effectively "rake" the yard. Great tool.

Home Use - Oak Trees
I have several large oak trees on my one acre lot. I got this blower after my original hand held died after 5 years (not Husqvarna). I used to use my lawn tractor to chop up and shoot leaves away from the house because using the hand held would take about 4-5 hours over two days and was gruesome on my back and shoulders. Now, I don't mind using this blower to take care of the whole yard. I can finish it up in about an hour and a half and with no fatigue. The blower is amazingly easy to start which was a surprise after using other 2 cycle engine yard equipment. I have even used it to clean out my gutters while standing on the roof. It was a bit more expensive than I would like but if it lasts, it will be well worth the money.

The overall package is superlative
I am a rather large, in shape homeowner with a wooded half acre. The clearing of leaves this time using your product produced a quick, eficient, complete result. For the first time I feel as if I've tamed the back yard. The best part is that I didn't feel the usual body pains found with using other backpacks. The balance and feel of this unit makes the job much easier.

Great leaf mover
Just purchased this fall to move a ton of oak leaves. Did an excellent job. Started easily and pushed the leaves really well. No complaints.
