Cold Running Problems
I have the same problem as others. When the temperature is 40 degrees f or less, it will not run up to speed. I have to leave it on 1/2-3/4 choke to keep it running. The fuel is fresh and fuel was never permitted to remain in the tool between uses. What good is a blower that won't blow in the late fall when the leaves have finally finished falling?

So far so good
I have owned this product for about two months, and it has performed well. I don't really have any major complaints to speak off. The only issue I noticed is sometimes on acceleration the motor seems to bog down on swift throttle changes and I have to slowly raise the RPM's. It doesn't want to stall, but it just doesn't want to quickly build up speed. It doesn't do it all the time. I believe I need to own it longer to learn the motor's characteristics. Overall, though I am happy with the purchase.

Bad product, bad support policy
Out of the box the blower does not perform well. No problem starting, but it constantly chokes reving the thing up. Half choke is the best setting but cannot bring the power of the fully open carb, therefore the trick is to rev it up on mid choke then switch the choke off while maintaining the trigger fully squeezed. I sometimes feel the machine is about to stall so I quickly switch back to half choke. By the way, I'm talking about a hot engine here, that has been runnin for plenty of time, even more than ten minutes. I got patient thinking the engine had to wear in a bit but I'm on my 3 gas fill now and still have the problem. The other thing that kept me from getting it to a service center is that, even though I fully registered the product as a canadian resident that had bought it in the states, for some obscure reasonss the canadian service centers will not perform any warranty service to it as it was not bought in canada!!! Ridiculous policy. I paid a premium price for a premium machine and service and this was I got! Very disapointed, all in all I don't think I will ever buy from Husqvarna ever again.

I bought both a Husqvarna leaf blower and a chain saw.
Neither starts unless kept at at least 20C. I've had both served twice, but they won't start at anything below those temperatures. Totally useless in the fall and spring, when they're needed most. No support whatsoever from the seller or the manufacturer. All they do is take my money for servicing, and deliver them in the same condition.
When it works, the blower works fine. That is, from June 1 to August 31. The rest of the year, total waste of money.
The chain saw - apart from only working in warm weather - is actually dangerous - it came apart in pieces during use, sending the chain spinning in the air. This was right after it had been serviced because it would not start in cool weather. I was told that "there is nothing wrong with it". Apparently having the bar fall off is normal.
I would never buy an other Husqvarna product. I don't ask for perfection, but to be told that the product only works above 20C is ridiculous.

I had purchased a Husqvarna lawnmower and a trimmer back in the spring, so I was pretty excited to add on to my collection when I bought this blower. Leaves always seem to make their way into my garage or my front entry way, and sweeping gets pretty old after a while. Also, there seems to be a lot of dust and debris that accumulates in various corners and along the pavement around my house. This blower is pretty good about keeping the area clean and clear. It's not too heavy, and it's pretty powerful. It's easy to start, and easy to use, and I like that I can convert it into a vacuum for any job that might require it. I'm fairly satisfied with this blower, and expect to be using it for a good while to come.

Purchased this blower a year ago. Like many others the fuel lines failed resulting in needed repairs with just over a year of ownership however, I live in Michigan which really means 4-months at (1) use per week. The repair was not that difficult but again, this is a realtively new unit! Remember, one of the advantages of buying new is supposed to be that you "Don't have to work on it"! Although when new it started fairly well, post repair it is a bit more difficult to start?
I don't have time to focus on keeping a "new" leaf blower running and I'm sure you don't either. My recommendation is to avoid Husqvarna and seek out another brand.
