Nice product but it has carb issues
I like this product, I don't like the carb issues that come along with it. I purchased a 125B form Lowe's and also purchased the extended /free replacement warranty. After a few uses it began to lose power and then died and would not start. I returned it and they gave me a new one. I use fresh gas & Husqvarna oil mixture, so that is not the issue. My new one is running fine, but it is only 2 months old. The unit works well, has power, is lightweight, easy to start normally, and just a nice product. Now if they would only fix the carb issue.

better than expected
My lawn is litterly covered with leaves in the fall; pine, oak, and other hard woods. I have used other brand blowers before, but none has coime close to the HUSQVARNA 125B. Starts easily and cuts my blowing time in half. A great buy.

"Now That's the Power" I've been Looking For
Follow The Instructions and Use the recommended gas and you shouldn't have any problems blowing wet leaves, pine needles, thatch, etc. i have had the blower for about 1 month and it has been great for short and extended periods (2 to 3 hours). Burns gas efficiently. When comparing to the backpack blowers the only inconvenience is that it is a handheld and some users may need to switch hands every 15 minutes or so. I can't comment on durability since i just got it but it has cranked exactly like it did on day 1 every time thus far.

I've had it for years blowing leaves on a 1/3 acre semi-wooded suburban lot. Very dependable: starts on the 2nd or 3rd pull when cold with choke, 1st pull when warm. It will take care of a light 1-2" snow on the driveway, and I use it to blow off the cars with even a moderate snow of 6-8". Cleans out gutter and drain spouts, and makes short work of the garage.

I had a B & D 18V rechargeable blower but was not happy with the performance and the batteries died too quickly. I am completely happy with the Husqvarna blower.

okay so it blows but , had to adjust idle settings after first use,air inlet on right side of blower makes it impossible for use with left hand, poorly balanced so that always trying to adjust blowing angle and slippery handle is uncomfortable to use over long period of time, sent similar feedback to Husqvarna and had little response, this just shows poor customer service, I would have returned it if i could but Husqvarna has a no return policy- would not recommend for the price,

Better than a Stihl
Bought this blower to replace a Stihl that has become steadily more unreliable over the years, despite numerous attempts to tune it back up, including a carb rebuild. The Husqvarna is easier to start and less cantankerous. I actually took the flared tube end off, however, and replaced it with the round Stihl tube as I feel that it works better. I use it to get into the tight places around the house and flower gardens that I can't get at with my Buffalo Turbine.
