Piece of junk!
Ran OK for about 1 year and a half. Now, I can get it started and it runs for about 5 minutes then bogs out. Gas/oil mixture is fine (I'm meticulous about that). Would be nice if someone could make a product that lasts. I know this isn't a top-end blower, but do you think you could make something that lasts about 5 years, at the very least?

Had this blower for less than a year and the fuel lines are destroyed. Husqvarna can blame it on ethanol all they want, or they can man-up and say we are sorry we put bad fuel lines in our product. The same gas going in my Husqvarna is the same going into my echo products, and they work just fine.

First of all I would like to say that I own and operate many Husqvarna products and have owned them even before people around me had ever heard of them. I have always been happy with their products until I bought a 125B blower five years ago. From day one it would barely run only if the choke was tied to full choke position. It has been tuned, new carb installed along with the exhaust inspected. Yet it would not run. This Spring I installed a carb from an older worn out trimmer off a different brand and it will now run with the choke tied at 1/2 choke position but that is it.
I never jump and write a review on a product until I have owned and used it for some time. Husqvarna has some great products and I highly recommend most of them. But with their hand held blowers they dropped the ball big time and I will never consider buying another 125B after seeing just how much trouble everyone locally has had with them over the years.

Better Business Bureau
I just filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau about this product due to the rampant fuel line disintegration issue. My Echo, Briges and Stratton, Stihl, Honda and KTM small engines have never had a problem with the fuel line. After less than 1 year the fuel line has completely disintegrated. Husqvarna states that this is a "wear" part and that it is only covered by warranty for the first 30 days. It takes about 3-6 months on average by the complaints that I have researched for the fuel line to disintegrate and crack. I am not satisfied. I am angry. This product does not hold up. Customer service is not helpful. I called headquarters and just left a message for the President of the company to call me. My experience with this company will drive me from ever buying another Husqvarna product.

6 month after buying using less than every 2-3 weeks fuel lines broke apart where they fit into gas tank stopper
gas tank stopper and fuel lines appear to be incompatible compounds causing the fuel lines to break down after just a few months and very few hours use, Where do I get replacement fuel lines?

Do not buy
This product is terrible. Worked OK for first year. Then began stalling out after short period of use. Took it back twice to place of ppurchase. Bothe times I was charged $40.00 for repair, but nothing helps. I am lucky if it stays running for more than a minute.
I am purchasing a diff. one today, and will drop this off to the place of purchase.
Husqvarna should be ashamed of selling this product.
DO NOT BUY!!!!

Bad gas lines in 6 months.
I was using once to twice a week. The blower stopped working and I was curious why. new gas checked spark still no go. emptied tank and noticed that the line in the tank was disconnected.... SO I pulled it apart and noticed that the line had corroded and become brittle. A little frustrating for such a new blower.
Other than that the blower works great. I read a lot of reviews prior to purchasing and not one said anything about the lines going bad. Now I am looking back through them and there are quite a few. Caution to those that are looking for this blower and are not mechanically inclined.
I am lucky that I am. Simple FIx. but a hassle nonetheless
