Try before you buy
I own an Echo PB603 and decided I needed a new blower before leaf season for my wife to use while I was using the Echo. Bought the 350 and brought it home. Tried moving piles I had blown with the Echo. it did great as long as the piles were primarily hardwood leaves but when there were a large percentage o pine needles it didn't want to move them. Went back to dealer and upgraded to the 560 BT and was happier with the performance, pretty much equal to my Echo. So my advice is for $100 more buy the 560 if you have pines in your yard, get the 350 if all you have are hardwoods.

This blower is the best one i've owned. it has a good mix of power to weight and cost. Would highly recommend.

This is the best blower yet. Starts easy and runs great and idles real well. When I first used this I thought off Tim the tool man Taylor because of the power LOL

Good weight /power ratio
Replaced an Echo BP blower that I had to replace the carb. once and had problems in less than six months after replacing carb. often took 6-10 pulls to start. This Husqvarna 350BT started on the second pull out of the box. Always starts on pull 2-3. Comfortable to wear and operate.
Would recommend !

I've had the Husky 350bt backpack blower for a year now and it is an awesome machine. Starts easy every time. Wet leaves and twigs are not a problem. My home is in the woods, so leaves are abundant in the fall. I purchased this machine to make quicker work of my yard cleanup and this blower really delivers the necessary wind-force.

Used many blowers and this one is excellent. Blower is ergonomically correct which reduces the amount of strain on your arms as you blow. I have an extremely large backyard and have been able to blow it all with no troubles. Power is acceptable. Once leaves or debris gets to large have to pick up or blower will just blow everywhere. Ear protection is a must with this blower but this is no different from any other blower I have used...who wants their ears ringing after they are done with the job. Only improvement I would make on this machine is some type of starter so you do not have to remove the pack in order to pull start the machine when you need to stop.

I own my own lawn care business and I had to upgrade from a handheld to a backpack blower, it was a must and I was going to get a Stihl but their so expensive compared to everything else so I bought this Husqvarna and I love it. I have worked for a lawn service before and I used a Stihl BR 550 and this Husqvarna has just as much power as that one and lighter. Not to mention, a lot more comfortable!

Great value, needs a foot peg for starting
Great unit but needs a foot peg for starting. When cool, holding onto the top works fine. After unit is hot, restarting would be easier if there was a peg or something so your foot could hold it down when restarting. Like other reviewers, I agree it would be more comfortable with a chest buckle. Otherwise, great unit, good power, starts right up.
