Autumn is a time of transitions, a time when the world starts to prepare for winter and the passing of another year into memory. Squirrels thus gather their nuts, birds migrate and trees divest themselves of their foliage. The latter of these events, however, is not overly convenient for those of us who aren’t preparing to hibernate, as dead leaves gradually begin to cover lawns, paths, driveways and forecourts across the country. Luckily, technology now allows us to tidy up Mother Nature’s generous bounty before it becomes a serious problem, with a leaf blower typically the best weapon of choice. The lightest of Husqvarna’s professional grade backpack blowers, the 350BT offers a great combination of exceptional manoeuvrability and impressive power to make even extensive commercial clearance work eminently manageable.
The 350BT is powered via an impressively compact 50.2cc two-stroke petrol engine, built with Husqvarna’s brilliant X-Torq® technology. The X-Torq® system improves the combustion process significantly, thus increasing fuel efficiency by up to 20% while simultaneously reducing harmful particle emissions by up to 75%! The 350BT is therefore cheaper to run and better for the environment than a blower with a conventional two-stroke engine, but with no sacrifice made on performance. With a maximum in-pipe airflow of 14m³/?min at an impressive 80.47m/s, the 350BT provides more than enough pushing power to quickly clear loose leaves, litter and dirt from pavements, parks, lawns and anywhere else it might accumulate.
Equally important, of course, is the 350BT’s ergonomic design, with both an adjustable, soft-grip handle and an ergonomically designed padded harness offering superb comfort and convenience. By distributing the weight of the engine more evenly, as well as by featuring a load reducing waist belt, the harness also helps to prevent strain over extended periods of use, thereby ensuring complete freedom of movement when working on rough or uneven ground. This makes the 350BT perfect for taking on heavier workloads, especially when combined with the increased run time provided by the high capacity 1.25 litre fuel tank.
The 350BT also incorporates a range of handy features designed to make life a little easier for busy professionals. The easy access primer bulb, for example, helps make starting pleasingly hassle-free, while Husqvarna’s LowVib® vibration dampening technology reduces vibration levels to help prevent user fatigue. A cruise control mechanism is also a very practical addition, allowing you to set the fan to a desired speed without having to keep the throttle trigger constantly engaged. On top of everything else, the 350BT is also admirably tough (as you’d expect from a Husqvarna tool), so can easily offer many years of reliable service.
By combining convenience, performance, toughness and comfort in this manner Husqvarna have created a machine ideal for professional gardeners and commercial contractors. Thus, wherever a profusion of deciduous trees threatens to make the place look untidy come autumn, do consider giving the 350BT a try.

About HusqvarnaBelieve it or not, Husqvarna did not start off by manufacturing any type of garden machinery at all. Instead they were established in 1689 as a weapons foundry supplying the Swedish Armed Forces. During the subsequent years, diverse and varied products have been produced, from sewing machines and cast iron kitchen equipment through to bicycles and motorbikes. It wasn't until 1959 that Husqvarna finally made its first chainsaws and engine-driven lawnmowers. The company's reputation for build quality and durability of product has never been in question. This is probably the reason for their line of professional petrol chainsaws being so popular with forestry workers across the globe.
Husqvarna are not afraid to innovate either, introducing the robotic, solar powered Automower® in 1995 and continually looking to improve their existing products by listening to their customers. Jumping onto the grass recycling bandwagon, they also manufacture some of the best mulching lawnmowers available, incorporating Bioclip® technology into the vast majority of their petrol lawn mowers. Be left in no doubt, if you buy any product from the Husqvarna garden machinery stable, you will be buying into Swedish quality that is built to last.
