This is the 1st gas powered blower i've ever purcchased. So far i have no complaints. It starts up real easy, usually on first pull. I was a little concerned about it getting hot on my back, but it doesnt thankfully. Overall its a great machine and i would recommend to anyone.

it blows the others away!!!!!!
I purchased the 150bt to replace a tired troybuilt that I thought was a good unit. Until the first time I used it, wow!!!! the blowing force was so much stronger than the troy junk, I had a squirrel problem eating pecans and dropping the shells all over my driveway. not anymore ! this unit with the optional nozzel, heck I can almost blow the squirrels out of the trees. this is a great product for the home owner or for the pro. well worth the little extra money ,that will save you in the long run by not having to replace it as often. ps just do not let youre buddies know you have it, you may not see it again.

Best backpack blower I have ever owned.
Well built and well balanced. Harness with belt makes it safer to use than my old blower. Starts and restarts easily. Most powerful blower I have ever owned... I'm actually looking forward to leaf season... and that is new for me.

starts and stops
I really liked my blower when I first bought it about a year ago. Great power easy to use. Now I have trouble keeping it running. It starts,reves up and dies. Ive replaced all gas line and even a carb to no avail. I going to try the gas cap next as I'm told if it isn't venting right the gas will not flow. When it runs it's awesome.

Gone with the Wind
Picked up one of these from the local Lowes to help keep the grounds nice and it's done a great job. Very reliable, starts with little effort, delivers a nice punch of wind, and actually pretty comfortable to wear.
Very good value for the money.

I looked at a lot of different blowers and read many reviews before buying this one. My decision to buy this one was based on the good price and excellent reviews it got. It is an awesome machine with lots of power. It felt heavy to me when I first picked it up in the store. However once you strap it on your back and adjust the straps properly you don't notice the weight at all. My handheld one bothers my back more than this one! Excellent buy.Can't wait to try it on the leaves in the fall.

I was very excited to get this best in class blower. I followed every step in set up and it would not start. I took back to Lowes and the manager and lawn and garden guys were very helpful. I told them I really wanted this unit but my arm was worn out trying to start it. The manager got another new one out of the box and we three went to the outdoor garden area and they assembled, just as I did, according to instructions. To my disappointment and their amazement it would not start or even cone close. Two brand née ones, three guys and no start. I ended up at home depot purchasing an Echo that cranked right up and has since. This machine will frustrate you.
