No neighbors , it's not a hurricane -
I have run echo for years .When I was shopping for a replacement/upgrade blower Husqvarna has over 200 cfms of airflow at the same weight and price.I am familiar with the quality of Husqvarna chainsaws and clearance saws I've owned in the past ,thought I'd switch back. I have been impressed with the machine since my purchase , ask me again in 5 years.

nice blower for homeowner
Could use more power, but it does what I need and it starts quickly and runs without issue - my biggest requirement in a 2 stroke engine.

Easy to put together and use. Instructions were confusing and had to call customer service but a good product.
Just what I wanted. A big step up from a handheld.

I had used the 455 rancher before and it was awesome! So I figured the blower would perform as such, and it does. It is super strong. Totally satisfied

I use this blower once a week for my own property. Seems to have good power. Not sure it is 251mph as stated. My only gripe is there is no foot step to hold the blower steady when starting it, when you pull the cord the blower pulls backward. Other than those small issues I'm happy with it. I should mention that I have only had it a short period of time so i cannot attest to its durability.

Excellent power and operation
Excellent power and operation, easy to use. Compared to a hand-held blower, is great to use in awkward places, ie: on the roof!!

A great product all around
I was a groundskeeper for over 35 years for a parks system. I used and serviced all types of back pack blowers. I would put the Husqvarna on the top of the list and best of all. It starts easy , runs smooth lots of power and easy on the fuel use. Thanf you for agreat product.

I'm so glad
"Blown away" by this well-engineered product is an understatement. I'm so glad I bought it to put the finishing touches on my yard projects. It starts easily, works well and seems to use little fuel. I'm glad to have seen your recommendation to use 89 minimum gasoline with the oil mix. It's too soon to make a statement regarding durability, but so far, it runs like new. Thanks for a good product. Something to hold onto closer to the plane of cord pull would make starting even easier.
