Common specs comparison

Make & handling

  • As the 150BT and the 125B are both Husqvarna blowers, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail.
  • The Husqvarna 125B is handheld and provides you with further mobility over the Husqvarna 150BT, as its backpack design is by far bulkier. However, the latter can utilize a more powerful engine.
  • Both products, gas blowers, offer a swift refill system, saving you time on refueling and allowing you to efficiently manage large outdoor spaces.

CFM & MPH

  • While the difference is slight, the Husqvarna 150BT's CFM rating of 452 marginally outpaces the 425 CFM of the Husqvarna 125B, potentially resulting in a subtle improvement in leaf-clearing performance.
  • With an impressive MPH of 270, the Husqvarna 150BT surpasses the 170 MPH of the Husqvarna 125B, making it more adept at blowing leaves on grass or lifting heavy debris like wet leaves and acorns.

Weight & Noise rating

  • At 22 lbs, the Husqvarna 150BT noticeably outweighs the 9.4 lbs of the Husqvarna 125B, possibly leading to increased user fatigue and necessitating more effort to operate effectively. This significant difference in weight is by design, and due to the fact that the Husqvarna 150BT is a backpack blower, whereas the Husqvarna 125B is handheld.
  • At 94 dB, both devices are equally neighbor-friendly, ensuring that neither would cause undue disturbance, and equally gentle on your ears during operation.

Engine specs comparison

  • The Husqvarna 150BT boasts a significantly larger fuel tank, holding 42.6 fl.oz. compared to the Husqvarna 125B's 16.91 fl.oz. This allows for substantially more fuel storage and potentially longer operation, assuming similar fuel consumption rates for both engines. The lower fuel tank capacity of the Husqvarna 125B can be accounted for by its handheld handling. In contrast, the Husqvarna 150BT's backpack design allows you to comfortably carry a larger fuel tank’s weight and dimensions.
  • The engine displacement of the Husqvarna 125B, at 28cc, pales in comparison to the 51cc of the Husqvarna 150BT. As a result, the latter may consume notably more fuel per stroke, resulting in significantly enhanced power. As in the case of the fuel tank capacity, the lower engine displacement of the Husqvarna 125B can be attributed to the handheld handling, compared to the backpack handling of the Husqvarna 150BT. This design difference allows for the accommodation of the larger engine's weight and dimensions.
  • These leaf blowers are both powered by 2-cycle engines, requiring an oil/fuel mix to function.

Vacuum ability
