    Husqvarna 150BT BP Pros ConsThe Husqvarna 150BT has its exclusive X-TORQ engine design. This engine helps to reduce exhaust emissions that are considered harmful. The X-TORQ also brings increased fuel efficiency slightly more than comparable gas-powered leaf blowers.

    When searching for a leaf blower, something to look for would be to make sure it has low vibration. Having a low vibration means that you can use the blower for an extended time period without experiencing heavy exhaustion. Husqvarna 150BT leaf blower comes with adjustable handles to help minimize vibration. With the backpack, the handles can be angled to help with low vibration. The low vib with dampeners are conveniently located between the engine and the chassis. Which is another plus from Husqvarna, smartly placing this in a key area of the tool.

Cons:

  • Weight

    With purchasing a gas-powered leaf blower, many are heavier than the corded or battery-powered options. This is in part due to having to hold the gas and fuel mix plus the advanced systems of the Husqvarna’s fan and motor. This 22.5 lbs tool may be troublesome to carry around the yard for an extended time period. For this reason, this leaf blower is made as a backpack, so the weight can be evenly distributed for better handling. Even with this being a backpack, the weight may prove to be too much for large jobs or to those that want to quickly blow leaves with no intensive labor.

  • Hard Start

    There may be slight issues with the pull cord start. While there is the safety feature of the auto start and stop switch, you will still need to use force to start this blower. There are times where more than four or five pulls are needed to start this Husqvarna blower. With having to place so much effort into just starting this tool, it is a negative that should not be overlooked. Once the Husqvarna is started and running, it should be able to handle various tasks around your property. However, it is not as powerful as one would imagine. This 50.2cc Husqvarna 150BT leaf blower is professional grade. However, it is not the most powerful from the brand’s gas-powered tools. This tool will be able to handle most work, just keep in mind that wet leaves or working with stubborn debris amongst grass, may take extra effort.

It is highly suggested to read the manual carefully before using this tool. There are a few set up tips that will make for a smoother operation if you do not skip. A prime observation would be that before connecting the hose to slightly lubricate so it is easier to connect. Not all leaf blowers need lubricant prior to connecting the hose. There are some leaf blowers that are already fully assembled so this is an added step that should not be overlooked.
