This Husqvarna 150BT is outstanding! Easy to assemble… anyone claiming it takes more than 10 minutes should have someone else do it for them. Tubes ARE NOT hard to connect together… just spray a small amount of WD40 on them and they go together easily. Some naysayers in regard to this blower starting... started on the 2nd pull out of the box… probably would have started the 1st time, but my hand slipped off the starter rope handle. I had a Datsun (Nissan for you younger ones) when I was a kid. It had a manual pull choke knob on it to start it. If you didn’t know to pull it out to start it, the car would not start and run. It started 1st time every time when you followed instructions. In many ways this better than the automatic choke they put on carburetors… less to malfunction. On the Husqvarna… turn the handle switch to on, turn the cruise control throttle switch to 1/3 on, put the choke on full, push the primer bulb 10 times; do that and it starts. Lots of power with this unit. Replaces a Poulan Pro hand held I hand which was claimed to blow at 200 mph. It worked for 10 years, but never had the power to move piles of fall leaves. This unit is very powerful… 251 mph. and moves over 700 cf of air per minute. Moves leaves, grass, stones and debris fast! Easy to wear and carry with my bad back… actually helps me stand up straighter. Much less noise than my hand held Poulan… maybe 40% less and no high pitch whining the Poulan made. Can actually use without hearing protection. Runs over an hour on a full tank of fuel. Runs smooth and little vibration. Great build, design and function… engineering was really thought through. Appear very durable. Very impressed with this unit. Did I say outstanding? Highly recommended! Buy this one instead of the new CARB compliant 350. The 150BT has more power and air speed.

150BT Great - Warranty Customer Service, not so much
Blower has been great, though it takes up a lot of space to store in garage. Only complaint has been with Warranty customer service. Purchased oil with blower to get the extra year of warranty, but have not been able to get Husqvarna to acknowledge receipt of the qualifying submission despite emails and phone calls. They simply say there is no way for them to confirm I have qualified for the extra year until I take for warranty service (which I hope not to have to do). That seems ridiculous.

I have a dadgum Gum tree in my yard, even when it rains and someone walks on them, and they get lodged in the ground it still blowes them away

Great power and air volume.Ideally, could be a little lighter but the extra weight is well worth the power.

Fast assembly and start up. Started on the 2nd pull out of the box. Pushed wet leaves like they were Styrofoam peanuts. More comfortable than I thought it would be as well. Nicely padded shoulder straps and waist belt. I am a big guy and I was worried that it wouldn't fit but it does with room to spare.

Awesome professional performance, at a reasonable cost!!!
I have been looking into getting a leaf blower for 3 months, i had trouble to choose what brand and model i should get. When it came down it was either an Echo or Husqvarna, so i chose the Husqvarna. It is an amazing leaf blower, well worth its money and cheaper than other brands with the same output. I also got a 3 year warranty with it, so i know i'll get my moneys worth. It is powerful, comfortable, and fuel efficient! I am so glad i got this product!
