Blower could be more powerful
The power on this machine is not what I expected. There is also an issue with the carburetor between choke and run. it does not run well enough. You have to keep a partial choke in order to keep it running.
It seems to to have improved after running for several hours but ti is still not what I expected.

No harness included, it seems a little heavy, inexpensive.

Fuel line problem and then still wont run
My 125b is about a year old and probably used 6 times. While using it last weekend it stopped running and I found the fuel lines to have "rotted" and broke in half. After reading this was not covered under the warranty I just replaced them myself. Started it back up, used it for 15 minutes and it began to bog down when RPM's were high. Re-checked the fuel lines and they were good. I spray cleaned the carb and it would only start in full choke. I checked the spark plug and replaced it anyway... It would then start again only in full choke but as soon as I tried to change the choke lever to "run" it dies. Now it will not start at all. I'm puzzled and just wondering if I should spend the $30 to get another carb to put on it or if I should put that money towards a new one #different brand of course#.
When it ran, it ran good but went downhill quickly.

Great blower for household size jobs.
This blower has the power to get the job done, and in my house/yard uses has performed very well so far. My only revision to the product would be the suggestion it includes an integrated sling that helps hold it in the right position (in Florida, when we are doing yard work in shorts year-round, your shorts obstruct the air intake sometimes when holding it with a slightly tired wrist/arm after a large area).

Fuel Line Issues
I am a MA resident and purchased this 125B blower last September. The main criteria used to make my decision was based on the fact that I already own a Husky tractor and a chain saw. However upon starting up the blower for this season I probably got one good session out of it before it began to cut out and then just would not start. I discovered that the fuel lines were leaking fuel and pumping the air purge did nothing for getting fuel to the engine. I went online to this site to try and research and was suprised to discover other customers have had similar problems. This appears to be a systemic problem and needs to be addressed by Husky immediatley. I read the warranty and it does not say these parts are excluded from the 2 year coverage. Regardless, they need to address the issue before they loose a lot of business. I have had other no-name brand blowers last 10 years with no issues. I am very surprised at this from such a reputable company as husky. It appears other customers have had to fight with husky to get this covered and with little success it seems. They need to step up and fix this issue. I just left mine with the my local authorized husky repair center. Hopefully Husky will step up and cover the repair. They need to stand behind their product and reputation. Their is obviously a design/part flaw that needs to be addressed at their cost...not the consumer. I will follow up and let you know how this was handled. This will ultimately decide if I stick with this company going forward.
