I recently purchased this and havent used it much so its tough for me to rate durability. Its very comfortable, starts easily and does everything I would expect it to. I was a little disappointed in how much force is puts out. I bought this over the 130 due to Husq stating it had an additional 90 or so mph output. It may very well have that, but I was expecting more force from it. Either way, Im happy with it and glad I spent the extra money over the 130. I recommend ear muffs.

The Husqvarna 150 BT is an excellent blower.
This is my second Husqvarna and a step up in power. I needed a blower with lots of wind velocity because I live on six acres of land with very ancient oaks. In the fall it is a major endeavor to blow the leaves away from around the house and gardens. I needed something that had the power to do the job, without being too heavy on my back. The 150BT gets the job done and I am very pleased with the performance. I would most certainly recommend this product to anyone needing a high capacity blower.

Good product, fair price. Easiest starting power tool I own. Much quieter than last blower.

starts on the second pull every time! Does a nice job getting rid of the leaves and debris. struggles a bit with the wet and heavy stuff, but overall the best blower I have ever owned. The price was OK, wish it was a little cheaper, but I think this will last a good long time..so the extra money may have been worth it.

My Favorite Leaf Blower Ever
I have only used the blower for routine yard cleaning, and haven't gotten to use it for my massive fall leaf blowing, but I actually look forward to trying it out on that job! It has worked great for everything so far, and it is one of my favorite yard equipment purchases ever.
Easy to start. Comfortable to wear, and quiet operation.
Suggested area of improvement: It was not easy to assemble all of the plastic hose pieces. Some fit together very well, others required a bit of wrangling and struggling to get them to interlock as they should.

Powerful yet easy to handle
I researched backpack blowers at great length prior to purchasing this unit. This blower met all my expectations including being reasonably priced. It is powerful enough to successfully move leaves and twigs yet light enough not to be a burden. It is very easy to start and remarkably quiet when running.

Should have bought sooner
This blower cuts my yard work time in half. I have a lot of pine straw, and for years I struggled with hand-held blowers lacking in power. The 150BT gets the leaves and pine straw off the grass so quickly. My only regret is not buying it sooner!

i like the backpack much more the the hand one, your wrist don't get sore and after a short period of time you don't even know it is on your back,it is not to loud not to much power but work's fine for home fast clean up
