Lowes has the Husqvarna 150bt backpack blower on sale for $249.00
  • 50.2-cc 2-Cycle Professional Gas Backpack Blower
  • 251 MPH/710 CFM
  • Commercial backpack blower
  • Convenient trigger throttle with cruise control mounted on the tube
  • Comfortable padded harness with load-reducing hip belt
  • Air purge for very easy starting

Seems to be very similar to the 350bt that is popular (350bt has a better harness?). Seems that the MPH/CFM ratings are inflated (measured at housing instead of inside pipe). If anyone knows the differences between this and the 350bt, that would be helpful. Gets good reviews on the site.

For comparison:
350bt - $299 @ Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/Husqvarna-3...B002FU5SKU

If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Quick search brought up lawnsite.com which is what a lot of the commercial guys use to discuss. There is a small section for homeowner discussion but most of the talk is the the commercial equipment section. Most say look at what you think you need or can afford and go up one level from that. Commercial equipment will pay for itself in the short and long run via ease of starting, less maintenance, and longer life. Really a homeowner should never need a new piece of commercial equipment as it will almost never wear out.

This has good info from 2010.

150bt - smaller tube which gives higher mph and lower cfm for getting things unstuck like wet grass.
350bt - bigger tube which gives lower mph and higher cfm for moving light debris like leaves.

The ratings given by the OP are 100% measured at the housing without the blower tube on. My $550 commercial blower has these same specs on an 80cc motor.

Don't forget to buy either Husqvarna 2 stroke oil or pre mixed fuel at the same time to extend your warranty. 6 bottles of oil extends it 1 year to a total of 3 years, and 3 cans of pre mixed fuels extends it 2 years for a total of 4 years.

Details here. [husqvarna.com]

Don't forget the $30 off $150 found in the SD thread here

I just checked and it worked in my cart.

Also, you can possibly pick up discounted gift cards to cover your purchase & save ~10% (YMMV) & finally there are the rebate sites for another 1 to 2 %.

That would bring this down to ~$200 plus tax.

I paid $300 and would do it again in a heartbeat! I blow all my leafs right back in all my neighbors yards where they came from. I love this thing!

$250? Ruuuuuunnnnnn to the store and get one. You'll thank me later when all these leafs start falling, not to mention its a lot of fun to use.

EDIT...
I have the 350 not the 150.

The 150bt can be had for $199 if you look around and the 350 is $299

You should just return it and re-buy online. They'll honor the $250 but not the $30 off without a physical coupon.

I don't really understand, this did ok but the 350 did better in Consumer Reports. If you can really get this for $199, how is $220 after coupon plus tax a hot deal? And BTW, where is it $199 because I can't find it.
