Blower did not perform
After carefully considering my blower options, I chose to purchase the Husqvarna150BT. The reviews that I read were mostly positive and that helped me to choose this one. I purchased a fresh gallon of 93 octane gas and mixed it with the oil that came with. My blower started after about 5 pulls and I was ready. I found it to have lots of power and it was pretty quiet. After the third tank of gas it began to stall after running a short time so I had to take it off my back and restart. It would then run and I'd put it back on and it would begin to run rough and stall again. It then became hard to start so I returned it for a refund. Sadly I was not happy with it's performance. I have not bought a replacement at this time.

Much stronger than the other blower I own!
This blower is awesome! Husqvarna has always been a name associated with quality and performance. I have never used a backpack type blower before so I only have my handheld model to compare it to. The difference is night and day! It took only a few minutes to adjust the straps to fit my large frame, but once adjusted I barely noticed the weight. The control levers are easy to use. With the power switch located on the joystick, it's very easy to forget to turn it on before yanking on the pull cord! I know, I've done it a few times. Fuel economy could be better, IMO. I added a quart of Husqvarna's pre-mixed fuel when I started it for the first time, and it went through that in less than 20 minutes! Maybe it's just because the engine is new, hopefully it will improve over time. I'm still happy that I bought this blower, it's cut my work time in half.

Great power and performance
Great backpack blower use it all day Saturday and Sunday I blew about 3 acres of leaves and still running strong it eats a little bit of gas but blows a bunch of leaves is money well spent and will continue to buy more ask Husquavarna products I hope to be able to use this for many many years to come.

Good blower, but not for pine straw
Used it for the first time today at a customer's house cleaning out pine straw. I immediately realized it wasn't as powerful as I t it'd be, after thinking about it though I realized it really was moving a ton of pine straw, just not as quick as I thought it would. Something bigger wouldn't be bad but this has more than enough power for the average person. It is very quiet and after using it all day it wasn't heavy at all. If this lasts as long as all the other Husqvarna products I own it will be money well spent.

my first backpack blower
The is my first Husqvarna product. Never had a back pack blower, thought they were very clumsy, until I bought this one. WOW WHAT A PRODUCT.. Very quick start ,easy to maintain, easy to use. What power house. I will be looking at other Husqvarna products in the future.

I reviewed a variety of backpack models as to cfm and mph...for the money this Husky beat all by landslide. actual starting and operation is excellent...only complaint I have so far is the manual of instructions is vague and hard to read but once over that it starts and runs well. Rumors of Husky quality failures recent years have stopped me from total rating of 5, but will wait and see for myself. note also very quiet running much less noise than my old hand held blower.

One powerful leaf blower
This leaf blower is an excellent product in design and in operation. It goes together quickly out of the box. Tolerences are close on the blower arm pipes so some lubrication helps things go together. I used WD-40.
Having too little experience and data, I cannot say anything about this machine's reliability, dependability, or ease of repair but I can say that, as a new-to-me product, it fired right up and did an outstanding job in clearing my yard of just about anything that was not nailed down.
The only thing that could possibly keep this machine from being rated absolutely excellent is if it breaks too easily in use or is too difficult to repair or having repair parts that are prohibitively expensive or parts that are hard to obtain.
This machine is not overly noisy but I would recommend using ear protection anyway.

The best blower i have ever had
This is by far the best blower I have ever had, even my wife say so, she has commented on how much it makes her job easier to do. I should have got one of these years ago, I have never been so happy.
