We have huge amounts of leaves in the yard and driveway every fall. The BT150 has plenty of power to corral them as well as small branches and pretty much anything else that gathers on the lawn. It's also very quiet and is no problem to use for long periods of time. I'm having some difficulty keeping it situated on my back, some better explanation of how the straps should be adjusted would be appreciated. It's getting better as I use it more and is not a big issue. As several people have noted it is difficult to assemble the plastic tubes, but they also come apart during use after proper assembly, could use a better locking system. Overall an awesome piece of equipment.

Very good blowing power
We have 3 acres of heavily wooded area to clean up and manage a large volume of leaves. This blower has worked very well in season one to help clean off fence lines and windrow leaves for the cyclone rake. Starts very easily. The only draw back is that'll the kill switch is not spring loaded, so you need to remember to set it to run or you could pull the rope a few times before you realize the switch is in the off position. This is a not a light weight machine, but can use it for hours with very little vibration fatigue.

I have used a competitive blower for a few years but was never satisfied with the power. When my son needed one and I saw this one on sale, I bought me one and gave my old one to my son. So far this one has been great. Quieter and more power.

I just purchase a new 150BT and I was very impressed with its performance. The only issue I had was this package didn't come with a flat nozzle. I took a flat nozzle from a Echo blower to see how it will perform and it was like night and day. I am very surprise that Husqvarna didn't have the flat nozzle in the package. If I haven't had a flat nozzle to try on this blower, my rating for performance would have been rated much lower. In fact as I was using the two nozzle that came with this package I was thinking I should have got a Stihl blower instead of this Husqvarna, but since the flat nozzle really made this 150BT perform so well, I decided to buy another 150BT and I order two flat nozzles for both blowers. I highly recommend the 150BT but if you buy one of these blowers, you must plan on buying a flat nozzle to make this blower perform to your satisfaction. David Picarsic Good Day!

Great Blower could not be Happier!!!
This was a replacement to an old blower that bit the dust.
We had moved to a new house that has much more leaves and pine straw than our previous home. So I needed to upgrade to a more powerful blower. Boy does this fit the job ! I am extremely happy with its power and ease of use.
And starting is a breeze prime and pull the starter 1-2 times and you are blowing. Thanks Husqvarna for another great product.

I'm prone to hype?
I was convinced by friends and sales people that the 150BT was just the ticket for my situation. I have a very long driveway, a large back yard and a need for a blower that starts easily and has the power to clear leaves and clippings. This unit was and remains impossible to start, if it starts it refuses to run smoothly and or efficiently. Bad luck has hit me hard this time and I wouldn't want to pass it on to anyone else who might fall for the hype written on these pages.

The Only Tool I Need For Leaves
Bought this Husquvarna 150BT blower after too many hassles with Sears Craftsman hand held blowers, especially with the store not honoring the repair warranty I bought annually. From the moment I cranked it up with ONE tug on the starter pull cord it has amazed me with awesome power, smoothness and performance. I no longer need the hand held blower/leaf rake/tarp to get my leaves to the curb for pickup. This machine blows them so well that I need no other tools to do what has always been a pain in the butt job. My basement garage floor is now dust free, works great blowing the water or snow off my cars to instant dryness, my roof and gutters are super clear. I should have invested in one many years ago, and not the cheaper pieces of junk I have tolerated for way too long. Kudos for the Husky!
