Q: Hi Joe -- What is the best measure of a leafblower's power? I am trying to understand why the Husqvarana 350BT is considered more powerful than the 150BT because it appears that the 150BT and the 350BT have the same CFM (494) but the 150BT has a higher air speed than the 350BT. I understand that the 350BT is more durable but I cannot understand why it would be considered more powerful than the 150BT. Thanks.
by Quan from Virginia on November 11, 2013

A: Quan,

You, my friend, win the perceptive shopper award today. You chose such a fine example too. On paper, the Husqvarna 150BT and the 350BT appear remarkable similar. All of the specifics matching up across the board. Except for that pesky air speed. You may hear a lot of people talk about how important that air speed is, and they are partially correct. Air speed is a direct measure of engine size and power. But the true measure of a good leaf blower is shown by what will move your debris...Air Volume or CFMs.

In the case of the Husqvarna 150 vs. 350, you will see that the 350BT has a more commercial design allowing a similar size engine to work less to achieve the same air volume. This leads to longer run times with less engine wear.

Q: Hi Joe,
I love the capability to lock the speed and the overall durability of this model. What's available left-handed that is comparable?

by Gabor from Arkansas on November 11, 2013

A: Gabor,

Unfortunately, there are no left-handed tube models made by any manufacturer.

Q: I am looking for a good quality blower that my wife can easily start. Is the Husky that blower? Her favorite gift of all time was a Stihl saw that is incredibly easy to start. I need the same thing for a blower.
by Randy from Georgia on November 09, 2013

A: Randy,

The easiest backpack leaf blower I can recommend is the Dolmar PB-7601.4. 2-cycles always will present more start-up issues than a 4-cycle engine will. Dolmar is an amazing German company who is credited for inventing and patenting the first chainsaw ever. So to say they know a thing or two about small engines is an understatement.

To make life even easier, Dolmar has one of the most durable, and reliable "spring assisted" recoil starts on the market. It has to be felt to be believed. She will be running this with ease whether anyone is around or not.

Q: IF YOU PLEASE REGARDING THE Husqvarna 50 cc 2 cycle leaf blowers WHICH 350 VS 150BT FROM WHAT I SAW ON A BOX THE 150 SAID +/- 240MPH AND 700+ ON CFM.
by WOODY from South Carolina on November 01, 2013

A: Woody,

I believe the reading of around 700 CFM for the 350BT is a reading taken inside of the blower's housing with all of the tubing removed. That reading is rarely helpful to anyone since you are not using a blower minus all of the air direction.

Our listing of 494 CFM for the 350BT is the air volume out of the nozzle.
by Dale, Product Expert
Q: ON the Husqvarna 350BT model Is the handle controls able to lock in at full throttle of half throttle so that you dont have to hold down the trigger the entire time while using the blower? This would be more comfort and easier if I can get to desire speed and lock in the speed and then just blow leaves?? My old Echo had this and is helpful for leaves and long uses!

Thanks
Mark

by Mark W. from Virginia on October 24, 2013

A: Mark,

You are in luck my friend. You are able to adjust the idle speed and it sets where ever you leave it.

This feature is on the tube mounted unit (350BT) and the frame mounted unit (350BF).

Q: Looking at the Husqvarna 50 cc 2 cycle leaf blower at $ 319.99. Anything better out there for the same price?
by Jim Kostinas from New Jersey on October 20, 2013

A: Jim,

I just looked at everything we have at that price range, and the 350BT shows up at the most powerful, and the most durable. I have personally used this machine and have recommended it to several friends and family members, and have yet to hear even a single complaint about this unit.
by Dale, Product Expert
Q: what is the difference between the 150bt and the 350bt blowers?
by Phil from New York on October 18, 2013

A: Phil,

The 150BT and the 350BT from Husqvarna may appear similar on paper in their descriptions, but please do not let that fool you. The 150BT was designed primarily for residential use, where the 350BT was built more with a commercial application in mind.

The 350BT has more reinforcements around the engine and more durable motor housing. The difference in housing is what also creates more CFMs, and this volume of air will clean up leaves more efficiently.
by Dale, Product Expert
Q: The video does' not show the mixing with the gas and the oil. Could you explain a little bit about it?
by Frank from Georgia on October 06, 2013

A: Frank,

The process is fairly simple. First find a gas can that you will allocate for mixed fuel only. Then put one gallon of the highest quality fuel you can find. You are looking for the lowest ethanol you can buy, E10 being the highest you can use. Do not use anything higher that 10% ethanol, it will damage your engine. For every one gallon of fuel you use, use a very high quality 2-cycle engine oil (JASO rated). Put 2.56 oz. of oil mixed with each gallon you intend to use.

Please do not use gas older than 2 weeks and find the highest quality engine oil you can.

Mix them together in the can and give a light swish mixing the contents together. Add this mixture when you need to fuel your blower.
by Dale, Product Expert
Q: Does this model just blow or does it have the vacuum feature as well?
by Pam Dillon from Kansas on October 05, 2012

A: Pam - none of the backpack blowers have a vacuum option. They would all be strictly blowers. If you are looking for something with a vacuum option, you would need to look at a hand held model instead of a backpack model.
by Dale, Product Expert
Q: Do you know if any gutter kits will fit the Husqvarna 150BT blower?
by Chris Barnes on June 15, 2011

A: Chris - Husqvarna only offers a gutter cleaning kit for their hand held blowers. None of the back pack blowers have a gutter kit option.
by Dale, Product Expert
Q: do you know if they make a left handed Husqvarna 50cc Backpack Blower
by Frank from Massachusetts on May 28, 2011

A: Frank - sorry, but this model is only available in a right handed set up

The Husqvarna 350BT back pack leaf blower is designed with the large landowner in mind but still is a great option for anyone looking to pick up efficiency from a handheld blower.

This lightweight 50cc mid-size leaf blower features a powerful X-TORQ engine for increased power, better fuel economy and reduced emissions. The harness and controls are ergonomically designed for high capacity and ease of use. Throttle controls are mounted on the tube.

This is one of the most powerful... more

Hard To Get Warranty Service
Unit had defective discharge pipe out of the box. Came apart three times immediately upon use. Had to duct-tape it together. Warranty says take to any Husqvarna service dealer for warranty repair. I did and was refused service because it was internet sale.

Dealer said Husqvarna would not pay them to fix anything not purchased locally. I called Husqvarna and they said any service center can refuse service. This is not what is stated in the written warranty document.

Hefty Beast
This is a great blower and a huge step up from my hand held. To date, the things I have found to be a challenge are:

1. It is quite heavy, which gets a bit tiring after prolonged use. 2. It is bulky, making it difficult to use in tighter spaces.
3. You can't start it when mounted on your back. A bit of a hassle when you have to stop the blower to do something, you then have to remove it, start it, then re-mount. And since it is quite heavy, takes some effort, especially if you have a ... more
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Quiet, Fast

Poorly Engineered Discharge, Poor Instructions
Poorly designed discharge pipe: Piping snaps together but no grip points to hold piping while assembling one section fit sloppy and I had to duct tape it together within 15 minutes of starting use. Instructions are extremely poor. Unit is hard to hold while starting: no good handhold to hold unit down when pulling rope. Company did not include a 4 oz bottle of oil for first fuel mix. Blower itself works well once you get past the other items.
Cons: Bad Instructions, Low Quality, poor piping design

Robert,
I am sorry to hear of your disappointment in the construction of the Husqvarna blower tubing. I have forwarded these concerns to my rep at Husqvarna. Most backpack leaf blowers, Husqvarna's especially, do not ship with a bottle of oil for first use. There may be residual oil in the tank due to testing however you may use standard 10W-30 oil. Aside from these concerns, I am glad the blower works well for your application.

I appreciate you taking the time to write a review and hope you have a great day!

Husky Blower
Nice overall machine, blows well and runs well. The shroud guard came with a crack but not an issue regarding safety. The extension tubes are difficult to lock together and the thickness of the material they are made of is rather chantey. I also bought the gutter cleaning kit and they are made of thicker material and appear to fit together well compared to the machine tubes.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Reliable, Easy To Store

Awesome Unit!
After spending over $130 every couple of years on cheap blowers that were hard to start and didn't really do the job well, this one was worth every penny. Save yourself the headache of no starts or pulling the cord 80 times to get it going. One quarter pull and this thing is alive! It's a little tricky to hold it store while starting because the pull rope start is stiff but once you get used to steadying the unit it's stable.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Exceeded Expectations, Price
