    Cannot find the difference. Both have the same engine, look identical, seem to perform the same, and the 150BT is 40 bucks cheaper.

    Can anyone give me some information about the differences?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I just answered this for another poster the other day.
    The 150 has a throttle mounted directly over the tube ala Stihl. The 350 has it mounted to the side of the tube like my 570. (Look at the pics below)

    The 150 has narrower tubes for higher MPH but less CFM than the 350. The 350 is just the opposite. They are both very close in performance, and usually the same price, or very close at a dealer. If you are a home owner, the 150 is more than enough unless you have a ton of trees and need to get done in a hurry. Then, a larger blower will be much better than either of them.

    Right now, Lowe's has an awesome price on new 150"s- $249 + tax.

    I think you'll be pretty happy overall. Just remember, it can't compete with the biggest blowers made, but for the money, it is a great blower.
