Great Blower but needs one thing
Love this blower, awesome power. The one thing it could use is a chest strap to keep the shoulder straps from slipping off.I had a old fanny pack that I cut the straps off and sewed them on the shoulder straps of the blower. WOW ! What a difference. No more tugging on the straps to keep them on my shoulders.

I have used my new leaf blower now for about a month. I have completely cleared about 1.5 acres of leaves and pine needles which were extra thick from 2 harsh storms here in the N.E. The blower performed flawlessly during several long sessions. It has good power and the value can not be beat at this price point. The only problem I had was that a screw fell out of the bottom of the blower. It will have to be replaced. If that had not happened this review would have been even better.

Love My Husky
I have a large yard with 2 large pin oak trees . The leaves are hard to rake with a lawn rake. They are no problem for my husky!!!

One great leaf blower!
I was a little uneasy about how uncomfortable a 50cc 2 stroke on your back would make leafblowing, and I was not sure it would have the power to move large piles of leaves. My worries have been laid to rest. I still can't believe how quiet and easy to start the blower is, and it definitely has power to spare. I'm extremely happy with my purchase. I would reccommend future models have a more accessible primer bulb, and a way to know you're low on fuel before you run it dry, but I do love my blower!

Gas Finicky but Mighty! Great Machine.
Absolutely great machine. Plenty of muscle to make the leaf blowing task almost enjoyable, if that's possible. Starts easy and comfortable on the back. Waist strap comfortable and helpful. I would definitely recommend using High Octane gas as opposed to 87 octane regular, mixed 50:1 per the operator's manual. Tried using 87 octane gas mixed with Husqvarna 2 cycle oil and experienced some engine knocking/lack of performance after a bit of use. Switched to 93 octane, again mixed with Husqvarna 2 cycle oil, and it ran smooth with no knocking. Again, recommend using High Octane gas and you won't be disappointed.
The optional flat nozzle tip nozzle adds a little zip, increasing velocity. I'd recommend this as well, but not really necessary. Blower is still strong with the round tip nozzle provided.
A strong recommend. A big bang for the buck as compared to competitor offerings in this power range.

Powerful little guy
First Husqvarna purchase and so far no disappointments. only used it a few times, but if you can't get this thing started on the first pull, make sure it's primed, or have your 2 year old daughter stop being the one to try to start it. so far it's been great and took care of 2/3 acre of wet leaves in about an hour. piled and out of my way! looking forward to many reliable years to come.
