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.

Powerful and fast
The 150BT provides all the power you'll need for jobs around the house. Powerful, yet easy to control. Gets the job done much faster.

Bought this hunk of garbage and used it twice. It would not start for use a third time. Appears the starter coil went bad.
Emailed support. Waited 10+ days for a response only to hear they would not assist me.
This is my first and last Husqvarna product.

Great power. I love it!
This blower has great power and is easy to start. The tubes are a bit difficult to change out. Really it is just one joint that give me a problem. The 150BT has a large 50cc motor that goes and goes! I use it on my lawn to get the old leave up and out. Now the grass is growing back. Last weekend it worked great on the gutters! After I washed by dirtbike I used my new blower to dry off the bike. GREAT STUFF!

My First Backpack Blower
The Husqvarna 150BT operates real smooth and usually doesn't require the choke for starting. I've purchased this machine about one month ago and have used it for the typical Spring yard clean up. The hand control and throttle assembly are great and very easy to use. I like the power it delivers when you goose the throttle and it seems to move almost everything you point the nozzle at. I will definitely put it to use come this Fall. This is when I'll see what it really can do against wet leaves, sticks and the usual Fall clean up. The harness shoulder straps are easy to adjust and slip into but the waist straps are a little difficult to keep straight for snapping together. Overall, I would say this machine is about a 9 out of 10.
