No More Raking!!
This is an excellent machine. I've used smaller handheld blowers and they can tire out your arms and leave you with numb hands from the vibrrations. This blower is well sized and can go for hours. We live in the woods on a multi-acre lot and it's not uncommon to run the blower for three or four hours at a time. Each tank runs for an hour or more with the blower on full throttle the entire time. One recommendation that I think could really improve this would be a chest-strap connecting the two shoulder straps. That would help take the strain off the shoulders and cause less operator fatigue. A chest strap would help distribute that load accross the upper body better. The description currently says that these are ergonomic straps, but I think they're missing this key link to better distibute the wieght of the unit.

First backpack blower
Really increases productivity. Have used it on several occaisions for hours at a time. Not tiring. Excellent for getting clumps of leaves out of the lawn. Will try the 50cc chain saw when my current one needs replacing. They could have done a few things differently, but that is minor. Overall, very satisfied.

Thus is a great powerful blower and is very comfortable to wear. Only small, small issue is getting the backpack on with floppy straps - otherwise excellent!!

A great Product for the weekend home owner yard warrior
The 350BT Blower has been a grrat addition to the yard tools for my property. The acre lot, lined with trees in a neighborhood of similar characteristics can easily fill with leaves and the back pack blower simplifies the process and shortens the time. The ease of starting and using makes it a great product in place of the hand held blower I have used for years. Cut grass on edges, dust and sand from the neighborhood and light powdery snow in the winter are no challenge for the 350BT.

Awesome but missing a part
We live on a heavily wooded 5 acres with extended driveway that requires blowing leaves weekly. Until now i used an electric blower. No more. Earlier this month i purchased a 350BT blower. It is awesome - more powerful and maneuverable. However, it will be better when I recieve the flat nozzle and attachment that was not in the box. I called the service desk but it was after 8 pm EST. I am registered and have an extended warrenty. Can someone look up my registered address from the additional information provided below and send me the missing part? Thank you.

Looking Forward to Leave Season Now
Bought 350BT about 1 month ago and so far am very happy. After unboxing my first impression was everything was well constructed and this was not a cheap throw away big box item. After filling with gas it started on two pulls and after using it I was very impressed. This machine may be more geared two high end home owner use but certainly has exceeded all my expectations, it handles wet leafs with relative ease, only small negative I have is sometimes trying to adjust throttle I will shut the machine off and have to take it off to restart. I almost feel bad watching my neighbor use his Ryobi. I feel I will have many happy years of use with this product. Husqvarna once again made me a happy customer.

Ready for Fall
Couldn't be happier with the performance thus far after only a few uses.
Assembly was a breeze.
Wet leaves are no match.
