What customers say about "Key Specs"
Husqvarna 150BT 50.2cc 2-Cycle Gas Backpack Blower
  • Engine starts at the second or third pull every time. High air volume and speed.
  • On idle speed this product is more powerful than several electric blowers I've had.
  • This leaf blower did a great job for leaves in the yard and sweeping a lot of dirt and sawdust out of my driveway.
  • This blower is also remarkably quiet compared to others we've had/used over the years. This thing can do some serious leaf blowing.
  • Disappointed in the power. Fairly Easy but awkward to start. I am worried that the plastic is starting to wrap from the heat of the engine.
  • It does not have the blowing mph and this brand does not seem to have the power. I have owned others and been amazed but not this brand!
Husqvarna 350BT 2.1 HP CARB Compliant X-Torq Engine Leaf Blower
  • The CFM is absolutely amazing, it took me 1/3 the time to do my 1/2 acre lawn, compared to what I had before, a handheld.
  • The option of setting the speed where ever you want and it stays there (much easier on the trigger finger) or you can use the trigger like other blowers it you want.
  • Powerful and cleans really well. The variable speed comes in really handy. I set it to low and it will blow off a light cover of leaves without disturbing the mulch underneath.
  • The Husqvarna has excellent blowing force, and it allows you to set the control in place and then let go so it still blows at the speed you pre-set!
  • Wish for a little more power (wind speed).
  • It runs fine on start up but after 10 minutes it will make knocking noise and die unless I reduce the throttle to 1/2 speed. I searched the internet for solutions... It seems their are countless 150BT and 350BT blowers with this "knocking and reduced power" issue.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Husqvarna 150BT 50.2cc 2-Cycle Gas Backpack Blower
  • I am 120 pounds and its weight is not to heavy on me. It can be used comfortably for over an hour at a time with no problems.
  • Light weight easy to use and I will blow anything not tied down.
  • Easy to handle. Easy to start. Light weight.
  • Hard to hold backpack when starting.
Husqvarna 350BT 2.1 HP CARB Compliant X-Torq Engine Leaf Blower
  • The backpack is comfortable to use, no fatigue even when wearing it sporadically all day.
  • This blower is much easier to use than the old handheld model it replaced. It's 26 lb weight is no problem.
  • If this is going to be used by a small person for a long time check the that the weight will not be an issue.
  • Fit the straps to your body first and the weight isn't to bad to carry around.

What customers say about "Features"
Husqvarna 150BT 50.2cc 2-Cycle Gas Backpack Blower
  • Comfortable, has waist strap, wish it had a chest clip to keep shoulder pads together.
  • This is a nice leaf blower! It starts easily, and the backpack can be adjusted to fit my husband well, but also adjusted to comfortably fit me.
  • It has a good supportive belt along with shoulder straps, all fully adjustable.
  • The unit is reasonably comfortable -- feels like carrying my work laptop backpack -- and the trigger handle has a "cruise control" lever that maintains air flow.
  • Blower hose not long enough for my 6'4" frame, end of tube is about 2' off the ground
  • Noise is loud enough you'll definitely want to wear hearing protection.
Husqvarna 350BT 2.1 HP CARB Compliant X-Torq Engine Leaf Blower
  • Its actually pretty quiet, compared to the Troy-Built monster I had before.
  • The cruise control is an awesome feature. Super intuitive and easy to adjust.
  • The control handle itself is also really easy to adjust to your liking. You can move it toward or away from yourself, left/right, and change the wrist angle.
  • A few great features are the large gas tank, padded straps with plenty of adjustment, and wand mounted throttle. The thing I really like is the thumb operated secondary throttle that lets you set the throttle so that you don't have to keep your hand in the same position through the entire job.
  • Two sections of the tube fit too tight to easily go together and turn in place, the other is loose. Need better quality control on that.
  • The gas tank fill tube could be better situated to top off the tank.

What customers say about "Power"
Husqvarna 150BT 50.2cc 2-Cycle Gas Backpack Blower
  • Big gas tank, good for 3+ hours on full.
  • It is a gas sipper. I can blow for about an hour with one full tank at full throttle. Just outstanding. By that time, if you are not done, you need a break anyway.
  • Very easy to start, very powerful and does not use much gasoline. I was able to use it for a little less than an hour and it only used up half a tank which is about half a gallon.
  • This is a great blower lots of power. It is light and easy to use. it was pretty easy to put together. i had it out of the box and was blowing leaves in less than 30 minutes.
  • A very powerful, very effective leaf blower. It moved large quantities of leaves, even when damp or covered in frost.
Husqvarna 350BT 2.1 HP CARB Compliant X-Torq Engine Leaf Blower
  • The tank is fairly large, so most jobs can be done with one tank.
  • It used 1/3 the petrol it used to take me to do my lawn, very happy about that.
  • It has a bigger gas tank and uses less gas, I never have to refill the tank in the middle of a job.
  • The gas tank is good for about 45 minutes at wide open throttle.
  • Uses a a lot of gas for the power you get.
