I bought this blower to replace a 40v non pug in electic machine from a big box store. I am newer to 2cycle engines.. I havent pulled the rip cord on one in about 10 years. I love this little blower. I bought it at Lowes who price matched a local retailer who isnt opened on weekend and the sales guy explained the exteneded warranty. I understand you need to use the correct fuel now and car gas will wrech the motor. All in all its a great way to cut the cord and not replace expencive batteries... Anything that will blow rocks is pleny strong enough!

I found that the unit is as described by the advertising.
It will be ease to use. The abjustment screws for the carburetor could be made with a conventional screwhead as my unit did require a bit of tweeking of the carburetor. At this point I am quite satisfied and looking forward to summer to use the unit, although I have used it this winter to clear a light snowfall.

Very Nice features
Lightweight- easy start. I like the recommended fuels which doubles the warranty

The blower would not maintain a constant speed. The high speed needle valve needed adjustment, but that required a special tool which was not provided. To fix this simple problem required a road trip to a service technician. (A ridiculous design).

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.
