This back blower is excellent and the power can not be beaten. I don't even have to rake up pinestraw this blower will clean my yard in minutes compared to the hours it used to take to rake it.

Great product and warranty
I have wanted a back pack leaf blower for years. I had done a lot of research on finding one with the best cost/performance ratio. The Husqvarna 350BT was at the top of the list.
I finally got the blower as a Father's Day present (after years of hinting). I could not have been happier with the unit.
As with anything mechanical, things sometimes break. I had an issue with the throttle not working. It was covered under the warranty and fixed with no hassle what so ever.
I highly recommend this unit.

This Product is everything mention in it's description
I have purchase several back pack blowers over the years as a consumer for my home and I finally got it right this time. The 350BTis easy to start, light, and easy to manage.
It has plenty of velocity to move large piles of leaves. It has reduce my time in the yard considerably.

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.
