Runs great - until it doesn't!
A fine machine but I almost trashed it in the first week. After the first few tanks of fuel it started to miss, knock and loose power. Even fresh fuel didn't help. Found this as a common problem with this machine online.
Fix is to run high octane fuel (92) without ethanol. Now runs like a champ!
Engineers need to fess-up in the owners manual and let buyers know!

The Ultimate Blowing Machine
This blower is the bomb! I do not think there is any other blower out there that is better than this one. Although it is a little heavy and the starter cord is hard to pull, it has INCREDIBLE power. Anyone that has a lawn bussiness, this is the blower that you should have.

this product is for everyone
This mid-size blower packs big power for a mid-size unit. Great for any Do-it-yourself person and plenty of power and durability for everyday use.

I love this product
I have gone through two Toro backpack units in four years. The150BT absolutely blows away the competition. This engineering marvel works superbly and I love. it. It has more than enough power to meet my everyday needs on the farm, everyday of the week. Starts perfectly everytime. I just "smiled" when I placed this on my back and started blowing the leaves surrounding the house and pool area (we basically live in the woods). I will never buy anyother piece of equipment but Husqvarna from now on. A "farm and ranch" chainsaw is in my future soon.

Good workhorse blower
I've used a 155BT for 7 years to maintain 2 properties 100 miles apart. I loved it so much that I finally bought this 150BT to keep a blower at each property. Works great and should be as durable and reliable as my old one. It is significantly quieter than my older blower.

After many times of use, I'm convinced I made the right choice!

I have only used hand held gas powered blowers. This back pack blower has amazing power. It took me half the time to clean up my yard, the leafs where wet, and I used less fuel. I am impressed with the design and quality of this blower.

honey throw away the rakes !!
Except for the blower tubes being a little difficult to put together. this unit has performed perfectly. Clearing an acre and a third of oak and maple leaves is no sweat for this blower. As happy with this as my husky 372 . Great product!
