The Husqvarna 125BVx is the best leaf blower and vacuum combo currently in existence
The Husqvarna 125BVx works like a champ and starts every time with zero problems, regardless of outside temperature or length of time since last use. The blower is powerful enough to move both dry and wet leaves and the adjustable air speed ability is nice too when using around flowers or mulch. The vacuum impeller is very capable too, handling both dry and wet leaves and shredding them to a size perfect for composting. I've found that when using the vac, it's best to set the throttle to high as the constant engine speed keeps the impeller and vacuum tube from jamming. I'd also recommend after use on wet leaf matter, to removing the screws holding the impeller guard housing and clean it thoroughly as debris will collect... A simple thing to do. With a variety of handles, it's comfortable to use and easy to hold. I read reviews for blower/vacs and inspected many at stores and found the 125BVx to simply be the best. After considering other brands of leaf blower/vacs, I am convinced that the 125BVx is superior to the rest. It's durable, well engineered, and I believe it will last me for a long time This product, as with any Husqvarna, really likes to work.

Out performs my previous blower by 100%. Starts easy and runs GREAT. I will recommend it to any homeowner. I have to many trees in the yard, great for cleaning up the leaves. I find it great for cleaning up, such as blowing out the garage, don't use the broom anymore. Just blow it out the garage door.

Blows Strong Air
I'm used to a Stihl blower at work. Bought the Husqvarna after much reviewing of other brands. The $100 difference between the Stihl and Hus. made me willing to give it a try.
Not as much air blowing as the Stihl. I knew that going in. Vibrates a little too much for me at high throttle.
It did not want to pick up speed the second time I used it, wanted to cut out. It was warmed up and used for a while then all of a sudden wanted to quit on me when I hit the throttle. Had to give it small trigger action to get it going again. Will take it in if it happens again.
All in all a good blower for the price. We'll see how long it lasts?

Overall Great product
I owned a Craftsman for 4 months. I read the reviews and ignored them. Everything they said was true. I returned it and purchased the Husqvarna 125BVx. I'm totally happy with this product. Starts every time, and has performed GREAT for my needs around our property. I highly recommend this product.

Replaced previous electric blower/vac with the 125BVx gas model. Had decided to replace an electric with the gas for the convinience of not having to fight with the extension cord. The low volume tube puts out more force then the high air speed attachment of my old electric. Suction is excellent when vacuming leaves and mulches better than my electric model. Only complaint is that I wish that they would have included an extra strap so that I could keep 1 on the bag and be able to have extra to attach to unit when using the blower, however, it is light and mobile enough that a strap is not neccessary.

Very strong machine. Good blowing power and real strong in the vacuum department. Pick up bag is very easy to empty. If you follow the written start up proceedure the engine is easy to start.

Husqvarna 125 bvx
This product is very good overall. But when i pulled mine out of the box it fired up but needed immediate tuning because it didn't come to full power when the trigger was pulled, it took about two seconds. My neighbor works at a husky dealership so he fixed it up and recommended the high test gas also recommended by husky after i got the good gas and tuned it again it ran much better. Well worth the money, $249, because i am only 15 trying to start a landscaping business. cleans grass and leaves right off the driveway. I have not had a chance to use the vac kit yet.
