    I Was in a bind the other day doing leaf cleanups and needed another blower asap...had my helper go to Loews to get another bt145, well he calls me while he was there and he said they dont have them but they have a bt150 for the same price...So I tell him to purchase it.....I'll be honest w/ everyone I was planning on taking it back the next day and getting a br600....But after using it for the day I kept it...... and comparing it to the br600(I had borrowed my buddys br600 and had it this day also) The br600 compared to the bt150....theres not a huge difference don't get me mis-understood...theres a difference in power but not as big of difference as you would think by looking at the the cfm/mph's of each unit...bt150;494cfm@pipe/br600;cfm712@pipe....thats a 218cfm difference but you would think its way less using both side by side.
    Just sharing my experience with both blowers so all the br600 lovers please dont beat up on me to bad*trucewhiteflag* Br600;479.00$ plus tax (cheapest price I could find)/ Bt150;299.00$ plus tax(at any loews in USA)

    i am picking up a 150BT as a backup blower and as a lighter backpack blower for cleanups after mowing. There is no comparison between this blower and the 150BT. The 600 has a lot more power. The 150BT is a nice blower though for the money
