Broke down after 3 months
Bought this blower because of the excellent reviews. It worked great for 3 months and then quit. I took good care of it like all my yard equipment: 2 mowers, 1 lawn tractors, 2 chainsaws, weed eater... Call Huskie number. Busy line. So since I also bought a 3 year extended warranty, I took it back to Lowe's. Lowe's said they would fix it. Great!
3 months passed by. No call. So I went back to Lowe's. They just forgot to fix it. The blower was covered by the dust of "passing time". So Lowe's gave me a brand new Huskie blower same model. It has been fine for months.

this product is junk!
I was sold a bill of goods w/ this tool! I have had nothing but problems for over 2 years. unit is once again in the shop and waiting word on its overall condition. I will not put a dime into a repair because I have lost faith in the product performance . really disappointed in what I thought was going to be a "GREAT" buy. no more HUSQVARNA for this guy. SCRANTON,PA.

Used it for two summers and died
Bought this unit in 2011, fall. Used it for a month, then used it for the next two summers. I had to change the spark plug twice. Now, it will not run start at all. Changed the spark plug again, created a new fuel mixture, checked the air filter, checked to make sure I have a spark, but it all feels like there is no compression. This was a $200 blower and I have to say that the only reason I spent the money was because of the Husqvarna name. I am taking this blower tomorrow to my repair shop to see what he can do. I'm not happy at all and I'm not sure if I'll even buy Husqvarna again. Beware, and do your homework before you spent this much money for a blower.

Too much vibration through handle
My unit is a 2011 model. I use it seasonally as a homeowner. I wish there was not so much vibration through the handle. I just took it back to the dealer to see if they could reduce the vibration by making it run smoother. The mechanic made a few carb adjustments, then told me that was as good as it gets, it's the nature of the beast. I'm glad I don't have to use it all day. I should have tried it out before purchase. It did have the higher wind speed and better price over some competitors at the time of purchase.

Bought this blower for the pesky pine needles and leaves that build up at a business I take care of. I have also used this blower to remove light snow, it works so much better then a broom. So far great blower for the price.

Great for the price
I have owned echo blowers up until I bought this one. Glad I did. Seems to be lighter and the throttle response is better. Love the balance of the blower for 1 hand operation. Have only used it 7 or 8 times but I am very happy so far.

Don't buy this garbage
This thing is junk. Worked great for about 10 months, then the problems that many other people have experienced (from what I'm reading) came about. I replaced the fuel line system because it completely deteriorated. Now it will not maintain a constant speed. A lot of times it is very difficult to start. I use to have as Stihl blower and never had any problems with it. Don't know why I didn't buy another Stihl. My next blower will definitely be one. I'm still tweaking and replacing parts on this blower to try and get some of my 159$ out of it that I spent. You know there's a problem with this blower when you see about 1/2 of the reviews having the same issues. Very poor product! Don't buy this!

This product is great for the price.
For the relatively inexpensive price I paid, this is a very durable little blower.
