This is my first Husky equipment which I got after doing lots of research online. I decided on this unit due to its features of air speed, air volume, and easy starting. Assembling the unit was pretty quick and it started easily after the third or fourth pull. Follow the instruction to start engine and use 50:1 mix ratio fuel. I decided to use the premium gas initially just to be sure and didn't have any problem starting the engine. The hip belt is useful but can be a little difficult to put on.

Although I haven't had my blower a month yet, I've already put several hours on it and it works excellent so far. It fires right up every time which saves me a lot of time and effort

Works like a CHAMP
As a homeowner for 40 years, I purchased a great deal of gas powered yard equipment. My Husqvarna back pack blower is rated right at the top. Very easy to start (only one pull), plenty of power and confortable to wear. I will definately buy Husqvarna again.

Powerful blower, easy to use
Unit has great balance and ergonomics. Real nice harness with no pressure points. Very powerful blowing action for the size of unit and motor. So far very satisfied with the performance of the unit overall - 5 star product! Only minor niggles about the unit are that once the engine shutoff is selected you can't change your mind and turn the unit back on while it's on your back. You have to take it off to restart it. Also, the accessory blower end I purchased doesn't really seem to make it any more effective at removing snow - might be good for leaves - we'll see next fall. Price in Canada is quite a bit more than in the US. But I emphasize, these are only niggles - this is one impressive, powerful and precision built unit.

Bought this after Sandy to clean up yard. Shipping was fast and uneventful. Used it right out of the box and worked great. Reading instructions on choke process was a little confusing, they tell you when it warms up to close the choke and every time i did it would shut off. Took it to authorized dealer and they checked it out and said that the sticker showing on/off position was put on upside down.....NOW it is perfect!

Best purchase ever!
The 350BT is without a doubt the best lawn equipment purchase I have ever made. Fall has never been one of my favorite seasons because of having to get up leaves. As soon as I turned this blower on and strapped it on my back I sensed that getting up the leaves was going to be fun and not the usual drudgery. It is easy to start, comfortable to wear, powerful and easy on the gas. Why Had I not purchased this blower years before? I blew leaves that first day for 5 hours, stopping only to refuel. I cleaned up more leaves in those 5 hours than I ever had in 3 or 4 days with my old equipment, and I wasn't even tired from the effort. This is a fabulous tool you must have if you have many leaves to get up. Very highly recommended

Well worth the investment - Blew me away
I really wanted a blower that would clean-up heavy leaves and make less piles for me to pick-up. I also needed a a back-pack blower that I could keep on my back for hours at a time. This baby exceeded my expectations! Not only could I wear it all day, it easily blew leaves into huge piles. It cut my Fall yard cleaning time in half!

Luv my HUSKY
I have only had the 350 a short time and now I wonder how I lived without it ,, Easy-start less tiresome then a hand held unit. Once you have it adjusted properly you really don.t feel it on your back. Power is awesome I can clean up front and back yard in a 1/4 of the time. Starts every time on the second pull. If you have a lot of leaves this thing makes clearing them out a pleasure.
