    You are welcome. I've had my 150 for a couple years because I got it for free. It takes forever to blow leaves and if they are wet forget about it.

    I could see if there is a husky emblem on it anywhere but otherwise I don't know.

    The RedMax EBZ 8500/RH (Husqvarna 580 BTS/BFS) is $579.95 all day long on my wall. On Pro Day they are 20 percent off and can be had for $499.95 plus tax. I have never seen them for $449.95 as that is WAY below my dealer cost and I buy blowers by the pallet.

    To the O.P. at the ~$300.00 price point in a Husqvarna the 350 BT is your best bet. Personally I would step up to the 570 BFS/BTS for $499.95 (can be had for $399.95 on Pro Day) if for no other reason than the heavy duty air cleaner.

    Joe,
    If you were choosing between the Stihl 800 and the Echo 8010 (both newest models), which has more whallop ?

    The Echo, far and away. Plus it is lighter, easier to work on, and costs less $$$

    I bought a Poulan Pro PR48BT on Amazon in 2017. Very high reviews and warranty is though Husqvarna. 200.00 and included shipping. I used it at my place and my dads place for fall cleanup. So I have around 30 hours on it. I think it's great. The only issue was I had was to readjust the high end screw about 1/8 turn richer.
