    I just picked up 2 Husky BT150 backpack blowers and a Husky 435 chainsaw. All equipment is still new in the box. Never even been assembled. List price on the saw is $269 and the blowers are $299 each.

    I paid $300 for all of it.

    Before you all tell me it is stolen. My wife's brother works for a man that owns hundreds of storage units. They found these (and a bunch of other new stuff) cleaning a unit out that hadn't paid in a year.

    Anyone running any of this equipment? Any good? I can't decide if I want to keep it or sell it, but right now I have 5 blowers lol.

    I would think it'd be all great stuff for a homeowner.

    yeah it's homeowner grade stuff. i couldn't pass up the deal tho. the saw is an upgrade from my poulan( or at least a lateral move to a new saw) and i think one of the backpack's might back up my br600 pretty well. then at least i can get rid of my 2 handheld blowers and my old poulan saw.

    put together and fired up one of the bt150's today. it's got a 50 cc x-torq engine and moves about 500cfm. it is no slouch. it's not my stihl 600 but it moves some air. the box on these things actually says they are commercial grade blowers. i have to admit, i went through it and it is well built, but i think they used to sell these at lowe's and i have never seen commercial equipment at lowe's lol.

    edit: sry they still sell these blowers at lowe's. it was the chainsaw i couldn't find there anymore.

    I have one of the blowers and like it alot. Its not a top of the line blower(BR600) but for me it works great. I dont do much fall clean ups.
