Better than echo pb500
With over 20 years commercial professional experience as owner and operator of lawn business..you would have to spend over 500.00 to beat this blower. If you are old school and like 2cycle equipment this is a no brainer..ditch the exhaust screen, use 91 octane with synthetic oil and yer set. BTW do not use ANY ethanol..unless you like buying new equipment often.

Very powerful airstream. Starts easily on the second or third pull every time. Assembly instructions could be a little more detailed, larger print, and a diagram would have been helpful. Weight initially feels fairly heavy on the back, but harness and belt distribute the weight well and this blower can be worn for many hours comfortably. Less noise and vibration than I expected from a powerful baclpack blower. Looking forward to many years of service from this quality machine.

Great blower for the money
I use this blower at work, and I caught it on sale so I purchased it for home use. We just bought a house with a lot of leaves on the ground so it's been used a few times already this season. The weight of the blower is nice, it's fairly quiet, and it does a good job. The durability will have to wait a little bit to determine if it will last.

home owner [.58 acres] lot
this blower was easy to assemble with the instruction sheet provided, the power is more then I expected. The price was the best value for the money I could find.It does get thirsty at full throttle and needs premium fuel, but still a great unit overall. I would buy it again,though I have not had it long enough to comment how well it stand the test of time, but it is very well built. ALF

150bt backpack blower
ive only used it a couple of times but there are a couple of things i feel could use improvement . first a electric start by the hand controls so you dont have to take it off to start it . im not sure about its 150 mph wind speed . it blowes hard but im not sure . 2nd improvement would be the way the tubes attach to each other . mine are hard to turn and get locked in and if they dont turn far enough they end up coming of . other wise a good machine easy on fuel and i like the way it sit on my back . light weight and in general a good machine .

Easy to use product
Great product,starts really easy.No vibration, low noise. Reasonably priced. I will be buying more Husqvarna products in the future.

I've done about 4 days of blowing with this now, and it works fine. It starts every time, just use the choke when the engine is cold. You really need the 500mph to move the leaves.

150BT shoulder harness
The machine is excellent, but I don't undertand the placement of the waist straps...It would be much better if they were connected to the shoulder straps and passed across the chest...The shoulder harness has a tendency to slide down off the shoulders...I bought the flat nozzle, but it causes excessive arm fatigue for me because it requires an uncomfortable angle of the throttle/kill switch handle...
