Off to a poor start
Blower was purchased 2 1/2 weeks ago. A couple days later I tried to operate it using fresh gas mixed with the supplied two stroke oil. It started on the second pull and then ran for about 45-60 seconds after I took the choke off. I restarted it and it ran about 15 seconds before dying after which I could not get it restarted(yes I followed instructions for a flooded engine). Following the owners manual, I took it to an authorized service centre. They went to the back and started it, ran it for a minute and returned it saying it was set a little lean and it was good now. I tried it the next day and it still would not run for more than a minute. I returned it to the authorized service centre and explained that nothing had changed from my first visit. They said I would have to leave it.
They wrote out a work order and took the blower. The rep. Advised that there would be a $40.00 deposit required and it would be 3-4 weeks. I feel so stupid for accepting this but I left it. I am so angry that I bought a new blower to use that doesn't have 5 minutes of total time on it. I don't have a blower for 3-4 weeks and they have my $40.00 deposit. This has left a bitter taste for my relationship with Husqvarna.

The 125BVx really Blows
I have used this for one month now and have finishes the leaves and even used it on 2" of fluffy snow and it has worked great so far.

125BVx is solid overall
I purchased the 125BVx after reading various positive reviews from professionals and amateurs alike. While not to be confused with commercial models, for the consumer with a dozen or so trees in their yards this makes quick work of several leaf types without the hassle of dragging a power cord around.

I have one acre with 6 adult trees. When I use my blower it will run for several hours at a time. It starts easy and runs smooth.

Poor warranty coverage!
Bought a 125bv blower vac in February of 2012, used a couple of times until November than it would not start! Took to an authorized dealer who found fuel lines deteriorated and in need of replacement and not covered by warranty. NO warranty for fuel related issues, even though i use non ethanol fuel. After having to pay for a repair that should have been covered under warranty would not consider buying a husqvarna product again! Buyer beware!!

Wouldn't start after first use
Purchased the blower from amazon (first mistake, I could not return it. that is a different story!). First use started on first pull. I could not get it started again! I had read the reviews about trouble with the fuel line, but purchased anyway on Husqvarna's name brand. Fuel was not getting into the primer bulb or engine. All fuel lines had to be replaced after one use!! Repair facility knew exactly the problem. Not the quality I expected. I can not review the blower any further, as it was in repair during the autumn leaf blowing seeason. Purchased an Echo and have not had one prpoblem. Anyone want to buy a very slightly used Husqvarna blower??

Bought this product as an addition to my commercial equipment. Makes getting leaves out of tight and delicate spaces a breeze. I only use it as a shredder vac and it starts easily, lots of power and easy to handle. Gets debris out of beds where blowers and rakes can't reach. I have a Husqvarna backpack blower that has worked flawlessly for 3 years and that's why I chose this model. I highly recommend this unit and Husqvarna products in general.

Not worth anything
Had this bought for me as a gift last christmas. Mixed husky oil into 2 month old gas thats was well mixed before putting it in the tank. Blower took a long time starting up, ran for 30 seconds and died and wouldnt restart. Took the blower into my local shop and the tech said there was no compression. I called husak about warranty repair and rhey said it wasnt covered, that the gas was too old even though there was nothing in the manual warning against using " old gas". The only thing it says is dont keep more supply than you can use in a month but doesnt tell you why. This is how Husky stands behind their warranty- they don't. I will never buy a Husqvarna product ever, you cant trust the company to stand behind their products.
