Those specs are for the 125B. This is 65.6cc, 631 cfm. Looks like a beast. Anyone have first hand experience?

Want to know too. Was going to splurge on a 570 but the price jump is significant

This blower is more suited for landscapers, much like a professional tool. Not sure if this can be useful by the average home owner.

This blower was a significant help for me.

Bought one for my father a year ago and it's certainly overkill. While it may last forever and certainly does the job, it's meant for actual professional landscapers.

If your budget supports it, great, otherwise, you'll be fine with a lower model.

The 350bt is similar to the 150bt, which I have. The 350bt has a wider blower tube and cruise control, which is good for folks who need to cover large areas for longer periods of time.

I opted for the 150bt, the 'homeowner' version - it has a narrower blower adapter at the end to get in between bushes, and also would fit inside my gutters. However, you control air speed via the throttle, which can make your hands sore holding the throttle trigger down for 30 minutes straight.

If I had my choice again, I'd get the 350bt (this one) because cruise control helps, and you can buy the narrow blower adapter. I bought my refurb 150bt from vminnovations on eBay for 100 less. It was brand new in a brown box.

Btw, husqvarna owns redmax, which is their pro line for commercial landscapers. I always see pros use redmax, stihl, or echo.

I had a version of this several years ago and it was fantastic. (3/4 acre yard, couple of mature oaks and poplar). It was reliable, quick to start, and comfortable. Stupid me mixed up the gas cans and put straight gas into it one fall instead of 50:1 and the engine seized.

I have an ~ 8 yo version of the 350BT, which looks quite similar to this by eye (e.g. doesn't look like it's changed much if at all). 2 acre (mowable) yard surrounded by woods on 3 sides. It's been steady, meaning it fires right up and I don't do anything special for it (I do use stabil etoh in all my small engine gas). The carb did gum up a couple years ago and stupid me in trying to clean it I lost some super tiny piece, so I wound up getting a new carb on Amazon for $17 [amazon.com].

the "cruise control" (throttle "lock") is nice but after so many years (and likely grease/grime/dirt), the mechanism is starting to slip. It's a simple friction setup so anything that gets in there is going to make it slip.

Overkill? No.... I bought the 570BTS model from Lowes 2 years ago for half price from $500 to $250. I finish my leaves in a quarter of the time it takes neighbors with their smaller blowers. Time saved is worth every penny.

I was thinking about one of these over the winter and did a ton of research. The 350BT produces 21 Newton's of force while the 360BT produces 30 Newton's of force. Not sure if Amazon is an authorized reseller but if they are, Husqvarna has a warranty program based on what you purchase at the time on one invoice..

I posted a deal last year for this exact blower for $263 at select Lowe's. Not sure if it will come around again but def a great deal with a Lowe's $20 off $100 coupon. Never regretted getting the stronger 350 vs the 150. Is it worth the $100 in price? Maybe... the more frequent you use it, the price difference won't matter as much because you're getting that "extra" utility out of it. No such thing as too strong when the tool has variable speed.
