It is Junk !
The machine was hard starting from the first day. After just over a year of use here in FL it stopped running. The fuel lines cracked and fell apart in the gas tank. Fixed that no easy task either as I had to take a lot apart. It will only run for seconds with the choke full on. Then it will restart a half hour later and run a few more seconds. Seems it is flooding out as the spark plug is wet when removed after it stops. I Will Not Ever Buy Any product from this company ever again, $165- wasted.

I just purchased this unit . It started but was a little hard to start . Got it running but when it warms up and I cut the choke off it stalls , It will only run at 1/2 choke position . This is crazy for a brand new unit . Stick with Echo ! I must going to have to take it to a dealer ?

Excellent leaf blower
Small, lightweight, easy to carry and use, with enough power to clean my driveway of fir and pine needles, pine cones, grass, and all sorts of debris.
The task of sweeping with a broom has been reduced to mere minutes.
This little blower packs a wallop of wind. Does the job for me.

Powerful Leaf Blower
I am very pleased with my purchase of the 125B leaf blower. It was easy to start and much more powerful than the previous 2 leaf blowers I had owned. Light weight and easy to use. I would highly recommend it.

Have owned 2 of the 125 purchased at Lowes. Same issues with both blowers. Never no problems with engine running. Sometimes do have issues with hard cranking. My main problem with both is in the blower side. It acts like a bearing tries to freeze up. With both units within a year they started vibrating very bad and making excessive rattling noises. The second one vibrated enough that the metal muffler broke completely off. I took one off the old one. The first blower completely locked up. They have always been sheltered. Homeowner use on 150 ft driveway on regular basis. Second one still running but oil looking fluid is leaking out. Would not buy again or recommend .

Small but powerful
I've only used this about 4 times and it has cut my blowing time in half. Partly because I don't have to drag electric cords around, this enables me to get to areas where electric power is not available.

My second one is better (so far).....
A hand me down BG55 Sthil finally committed suicide or should I admit that I just gave up... the carb according to them needed replacing at 2/3 the cost of a new unit which kinda gets my crow anyway. Went to Lowes and decided on the 125B with a bigger motor for the same bucks. First one was hard to start and would only stay running if the throttle was set wide open... did the yard once with it and then tried to see if it would idle...nope it wouldn't ... but I was impressed with its ability to move leaves better than the BG55 with the pedal to the metal. So far my second one from Lowes is great! (I refused to pay attention to the yellow piece of paper in the box that says don't take back to the store if you have issues.# Forgive me #at Husky) but if the thing won't run properly out of the box then you deserve to get it back. May this one continue to run the same as the last two times I cleared the lawn and driveway. I will be forever grateful!

this is an easy to start, quality long-lasting blower.
The Husqvarna 125b is a great blower , easy to start, and long-lasting. Three pulls to start mine when cold and once after warmed up. This is my second 125b. The first one still runs good and has countless hours on it after six seasons. I am a repeat customer because I have been happy with the service this model blower has given me.
