Power for your money
This is my second backpack blower purchase. I was extremely impressed with the performance of this machine.
After priming the blower it started on the first pull with ease! The first test was blowing wet leaves from around my hot tub on my deck. ( the only work here was cleaning the debris from the siding that I blew on it! ) The second test was to blow cut grass from the sidewalk. ( I never used power other than idle speed ) I have no idea why you would include the smaller tapered end tube because I did not need it to acomplish both task with ease. Who knows what that will move!

Better than Competitor
Spent a little extra money to purchase the Husqvarna Backpack after trying two other competitors, and have absolutely no regrets with my decision.

Great Blower for the money
This is a great blower. I love that it is not as loud as other blowers. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a backpack blower..

Good with Some Flaws
Good weight, power and reliable starting. However,the bulb to prime is in a difficult to reach spot and the shoulder straps are difficult to adjust and need more padding

Impressed with Husqvarna products
I've never owned a Husqvarna product before.
I was apart of a relief effort to clear felled trees from the tornadoes that ravaged properties as they went through AL and TN back in April 2011.
I learned that one of the relief workers, John, from my area would volunteer to cut trees each winter to split wood for those who needed help with heating their homes by wood. John choose Husqvarna for all his cutting needs. He didn't own just 1 Husqvarna chainsaw, but 6 of them ranging from small to huge.
John was one of these volunteer relief workers to clear felled trees down in Chattanooga TN back in April 2011. He brought his 6 Husqvarna chainsaws.
I was impressed with how well those Husqvarna chainsaws ran. Tank after tank, they ran ALL day long without a problem.
So when it was time to get a gas powered blower, I choose Husqvarna because of how those Husqvarna chainsaws performed in Chattanooga that April day. Plus, John had a lot of good things to say about Husqvarna.
My neighbor owns a backpack blower. During winter when it snowed, I used my handheld blower to clear snow while my neighbor used his backpack blower. His could move more snow than my handheld. So I was interested in getting a backpack model that performed as well as his. This 150BT does an amazing job at clearing wet leaves and debris my handheld would only dream about. This backpack blower cuts down the time it takes to clear clippings and debris after a mowing. It has the power to move the material up and out of the way.
I am really happy with this backpack blower and hope it performs as well as those chainsaw did for a long time to come.

This unit provides great power at a resonable cost. It starts quickly and is comfortable to wear. My yard is typical with the usual grass clippings and leaf clutter. Looking forward to this fall so I can put to the real test.
