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.

350 BT Blower
I was shopping for a different brand of blower, But dealer
didn't have the model I wanted in stock, but would order
one. He showed me the 350 BT for the same price.
I'm glad I bought the Husqvarna instead, starts easy,plenty
of power and easy to handle. dealer had it assembed
filled it gas showed me about it

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.

Easy start every time. High quality equipment that should last.

This is my first Husqvarna product and it is all it claimed to be. It is very easy starting, has adequate power and is reliable so far. Assembly was very easy.
I bought it after a strong recommendation from my son who has the 130 model and is very pleased.

This product is powerful and handy
I've had a 350BT for just under a month and already I wonder why I raked leaves for so many years! Since I live in a heavily forested area, that's a good question. So far, the unit starts easily, has a responsive throttle connection to the trigger on the tube, and shows plenty of power in moving air. My only complaints are that it gets heavy after 3-4 hours of use and could use a bent nozzle tip to better direct air flow. Other than those things, I'm very happy with the unit.

This blower is great. Good power and fits great and not heavy on the back.
