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 434 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and an air speed of 251 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. At 22.5 lbs, the Husqvarna 150BT is within the average weight range of gas-powered backpack blowers.
  • Engine: Its X-Torq® engine boasts a displacement of 50.2 cc. Being that this is a 2-stroke engine, it must be fuelled using a mix of gas and oil. The proper fuel ratio set by the manufacturer 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: As far as gas-powered backpack blowers go, this one is average in terms of noise with a rating of 94 dB.
  • Fuel Tank: The fuel tank has a capacity of 35.2 fl. oz. Although this is not especially impressive for a backpack blower, it allows the unit to maintain a decent overall weight, making it more portable and comfortable to use.
  • 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.
