Overview of the Husqvarna 150BT

The Husqvarna 150BT in use

The Husqvarna 150BT

  • Power: The Husqvarna 150BT is a gas-powered blower with a maximum air volume rating of 452 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 270 MPH.
  • Handling: By design, this model isn’t the smallest leaf blower on the market. It’s meant to be carried as a backpack so that the bulk of the unit is out of the way and the user’s hands are free to manipulate the nozzle. Its throttle is located on the tube, which allows you to keep your left hand free. All told, it weighs 22 lbs — the Husqvarna 150BT is neither the lightest nor the heaviest gas-powered backpack blower on the market.
  • Engine: This blower's X-Torq® engine has a displacement specification of 51 cc. As you may or may not know, 2-stroke engines require a mixture of gasoline and oil in order to keep all the moving parts lubricated while fuelling the engine’s internal combustion. The fuel/oil ratio recommended by Husqvarna for the 150BT is 50:1.
  • Speed Settings: With its variable speed settings, the Husqvarna 150BT allows you to precisely control its air output. In addition, the blower is also equipped with cruise control, with which the user can easily maintain the selected settings.
  • Noise: With a decibel rating of 94 dB, the 150BT is neither louder nor quieter than its rivals in the gas-powered backpack category.
  • Fuel Tank: With a capacity of 42.6 fl. oz., this Husqvarna blower is average compared to other gas backpack blowers.
  • X-Torq®: The X-Torq® is Husqvarna's latest technology for two-stroke engines. It reduces fuel consumption by up to 20% and harmful exhaust emissions by up to 60% while increasing torque over a wider rpm range.

    I bought a Husqvarna BT150 in September 2012 and it did a great job. Died in January 2022. Almost 10 years of home use only.
    I live on one acre of wooded property. Got the new model today. I use ethanol free gas and Walmart 2 stroke oil 50.1 mix

    + PROS: Great for cleaning my yard of leaves in the fall and tree litter year around.
    - CONS: Can't think of any right now.
