Husqvarna 150BT Backpack Blower Review
The Husqvarna 150BT Gas Backpack Blower is ideal for residential or light commercial use.
Its blowing capacity easily lifts even matted, wet leaves and debris for hard to reach surfaces. The blower delivers an impressive airflow of up to 250 mph that is comparable to a Category 5 plus hurricane.
The blower’s variable speed throttle lets you control the bursts of air during operation so you can determine how much force you require depending on the circumstances.
The X-Torq engine fires up quickly, and the innovative, sleek fan produces highly efficient airflow.
Many users love the cruise control setting that allows them to set the required airspeed so it holds true and there is no need to depress the trigger while operating. This reduces hand and wrist pain significantly.
Once the cruise control is set, you only walk along and blow the various areas. There is absolutely no reason to depress the trigger. This truly frees up your hands and simplifies the blower’s overall ease of operation.
Weight & Ergonomics
Some homeowners hesitate to purchase a backpack style blower because of the added weight, but the ergonomic back harness makes carrying the blower a breeze.
The padded shoulder harness prevents any pain, and the hip belt secures the machine in place, so you are free to twist, turn, and freely move when operating the blower.
The LowVib dampeners reduce any vibrations from the unit so you can carry the blower with ease and not experience excessive back or shoulder pain.
With the price of gas constantly in a state of fluctuation, the added bonus of a fuel-efficient engine is a really nice feature. You can run the blower for hours on a single tank of fuel which, ultimately, saves you money.
- The blower is CARB compliant and meets all emission requirements so is generally considered to be eco-friendly.
- It features a cruise control setting that lets the blower’s windspeed be maintained continuously, so you don’t have to worry about depressing the trigger.
- The specialized air purge system lets you start this blower with ease. The function pushes the air out of the carburetor and fuel system as the blower fires up, so the start is very rapid.
- Features a two-year warranty that Husqvarna proudly stands behind.
Some users have complained that the trigger mechanism sticks or malfunctions. However, the trigger is covered by the 2-year warranty offered by the manufacturer, so if there is a problem with the trigger during that time frame, then you are encouraged to take the blower to a Husqvarna dealer for repair or replacement.
Users have also stated that the engine makes noise or smokes when running. In such situations, the ratio of oil and gas must be checked to make sure it is correct. Often, even a slight alteration in the mixture is enough to cause problems such as smoking. If the problem persists, then the user should seek out the help of the manufacturer.
