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?

Great leaf blowing power
I find it easy to start. Has great blowing power and doesn't use a lot of fuel.

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.

Makes Quick Work of Leaves
I have had an electric blo-vac for the last 15 years and it was on it's last legs. Can't get new or used parts. I never have owned a gas powered blo-vac in my entire life but always wanted one. I looked at all of them and the only one that I considered on an equal plane with the 125BVX was the Stihl SH56C-E. The controls all work great, moves a lot of air and chops up even small twigs no problem. The price was more than most but the features bring the price right into line with the best of them. I also liked the low amount of fuel smoke that typically is tear producing on 2 cycle engines. Noise level was tolerable although I always wear hearing protection and eye protection.
