Husqvarna 145BT Power Blower

Just purchased this 145BT power blower, real nice set up.. My first back pack blower. A new shop in town so I wanted to help out so I purchased this unit, happy so far. Has anyone had any experience with the Husqvarna equipment ?? Thanks..

I have a 145 BT. Replaced the gas cap twice already (the unit is less than a year old). Cruise control broke about a month agao. Other than that, its been great. Get yourself something with a little more power for leaf season though.

I surely hope It holds up for awhile as I can't be spending and spending on Blowers. Was any of the problems under warranty ?

Come on Grass Master thats not appropriate.

I used to have a 145BT before I got my Redmax 7001. Had good power, but liked the Redmax a little better.

After I got my 7001, I sold my business about 4 months later.

I have a 145BT and it works very well. Have had it over a year without any major problems.

One thing to watch out for is the way the straps are attached to the blower. They use very small washers that will cut through the straps in no time. I replaced them with a couple of fender washers lined with the same size rubber washers and have not had a problem since.

The power is fine, the only problems are with very wet leaves.

It is great on fuel and starts first pull every time.

I have the 155. A little more power than the 145 but I prefer my old Tanaka BP a little better. It was hard to justify the extra $200 though when it came to replacing.

I have a couple of Husqvarna products and am happy with them. The 225H60 hedge saw is an excellent little unit. The swivel rear handle is great.

Yes, I'm pleased with the starting, first pull every time so far.. I haven't dealt with the wet leaves yet, but very pleased so far with the unit.. Thanks everybody for the replies...
