Q: my company has a 150 bt unit. I need to know what gas and oil to use and the ratio.
thank you!

by Susie from South Carolina on November 22, 2013

A: Susie,

If possible, find any fuel with little to no Ethanol content. No more than 10%.

You will need to use a high quality 50:1 2-cycle engine oil. Look for any brand that is JASO-FD rated. It is about 2.56 oz of oil per 1 gallon of fuel.
by Marissa, Product Expert
Q: Joe,

Husqvarna 150BT is advertised as "Professional" and the 350 BT is advertised as "Heavy Duty." Can you please make a recommendation? The $ 20 price difference is unimportant to me. I want to purchase the better machine. Thanks.

by Mike from Minnesota on October 27, 2013

A: Mike,

It will be $20 well spent. You are getting a more commercially built unit with the 350BT. The commercial type housing leads to increased durability, and extended longevity over the 150BT.

The housing is also what contributes to the increase in CFM (Air Volume) which is what you are looking for when you are moving leaves.
by Marissa, Product Expert
Q: I have been looking at this model and there is a lot of different answers for the actual air velocity. One site says 251mph, this one says 112mph and then another site says 180mph. I am really in need of a blower that can handle over an acre of land that is covered in trees. But this air velocity thing needs to be cleared up!!!!
by Erin Nihoris from Indiana on October 02, 2013

A: Erin,

I think that some of the sites you are going to are using correct specs, but they are giving the air speed of the blower with out any tubing to direct your airflow. Measuring speed without restriction will give you a higher number, but it isn't too helpful.

Here is the airspeed and CFM taken at the end of the tube attachment:

Air Speed (mph) 251
Volume of Air (CFM) 494

Now that I have cleared this up for you, I wish you the best in your fall clearing!
by Marissa, Product Expert
Q: Joe, My question was the same as Question 1. So which is more powerful the 150 BT or the 350BT?
by Joe from Connecticut on September 29, 2013

A: Joe,

The 350BT was built to be used in more of a commercial setting as the 150BT was designed for residential.

You will find there are differences in the housing and durability with the 350BT that push it to be a bit more powerful than the 150BT
by Marissa, Product Expert
Q: Considering Husqvarna 150 bt gas blower
PED says air speed --112mph/434 cfm
Husqvana website states air flow in housing 710 cfm & air speed 251mph
Which is correct?

by Tom from New York on September 17, 2013

A: Tom,

They both are. The difference is how and where the speed and velocity is recorded.

The "in housing" spec that you see in the owners manual is taken when all of the tubing is off of the machine directly at the housing. Why they post this escapes me a bit since all of that velocity and high volume of air mean very little if there is no concentration or direction of that air.

We took the liberty of posting the numbers that matter. We pulled the the speed and velocity with all of the tubing and reducers attached. These are the numbers when the machine is in use.

The Husky Leaf Blower
A real good machine. I use both snorkels, and it has plenty of power for many commercial uses. It starts very easily. I did have trouble initially with assembly. The first piece to go on--the flex tube onto the elbow was quite difficult to mate, then the clamp which secures the two parts collapsed the elbow.

Not that I had over tightened I don't think, but Husqvarna sent a new elbow and things went together much better, and all is secured and working great. I would have to recommend the... more

Excellent Machine!
I bought this for my 1/4 acre flat property. It is powerful, starts right up, and comfortable to carry. There are 2 huge oaks and 2 huge maples on my property, plus whatever blows in from neighbors.

I was able to do rhw whole property in an hour with light to medium coverage and closer to 2 hours when I could not even see the lawn. It uses a tankful of gas at full throttle in about 45 minutes. I have used it over a dozen times so far and have had no issues.

Very satisfied with... more

It's A Beast !
I wish I had purchased this years ago. This was my first fall with it and I am extremely impressed! More air flow than you can imagine. What took me literally DAYS with my old blowers (I tried many kinds, including a few electrics) took a morning with this. So much easier to carry and SO much flow.

Be careful where you point it! I can't imagine ever needing the reducing nozzle which is included and makes the flow faster (but less volume). Super easy to start but as with many of these... more

Certainly "better" If Not Best
Powerful and, with a little practice, easy to operate with good to excellent results, and can blow wet leaves! On the downside (somewhat) for me and my sloping shoulders, it could benefit by a "sternum strap" across the chest.

Also, the air-purge bulb is a little hard to reach. Yet, the unit starts reliably and was a very economical choice. Seeming ideal for a 1/2 acre lot. WOULD recommend to a friend!
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Reliable
Cons: Air Purge Bulb A Bit Akward, Could Use A Sternum Strap

"Via TelCon, got excellent advice comparing Husqvarna 350 with their earlier technology 150. Once ordered, arrived quickly, OEM sealed box, added 50:1 and it started on the first pull."
