    Look at HD or Lowes. You could get a Stihl BG55 for $150.

    For the price range you are looking for, the Husqvarna will be great. I bought one a couple years ago and it works pretty good. Has just as much blowing power as my Stihl, but certinaly not the build quality. There's no vibration protection on the husky, and the carburator isn't even bolted to the motor, just a rubber bushing (mines almost ready to just fall off). So long as the carb is adjusted right it runs like a raped ape though, and for the price, you can't beat it.
