3rd time is NOT charm
So, the continuing saga, I took my 2nd 125BVx back that wouldn't start but because Lowes policy is not to give a refund but a cash card instead I went to a different Lowes and got a 3rd unit. Went home, checked the plug gap, poured in entirely new fuel-oil mix and wella! It simply would not start. I think there is a bad batch of these things with no spark/ignition. Boy am I disappointed. I call Customer service number and am left on perpetual hold. Rather than take the unit back, I trashed it and bought an Echo. It starts the very first time on the fifth pull. Husqvarna you really let me down!

Compared to my 10 year old Craftsman blower this is a great unit. Very light weight and good power. It was a little difficult to start for the first time but once I got gas flowing it starts very easy. The throttle holder is a good feature that keeps me from reving it all the time but rather holding it at a steady speed.
It is VERY quiet! I always used ear plugs with my old blower and still do with this one but have forgotten them a time or two because this blower is QUIET.
I am right handed and when I shift to my left arm it will pull my pant leg into the screen if I don't hold it out. A little tricky for a left hander I would think - but you guys have been doing that all your life in this right-handed world.
Since it is only a month old I can't speak to durability. One thing I am doing is using only NON-ethanol gas in all my engines. I hope to avoid some of the gas line and carb problems I've had in the past.

Works great when I get to use it
Works great, plenty of power even on wet leaves. I havn't tried the vac yet. The only problem I have had is my son wants to us it, and I get the rake.

Great product for leaves and general cleanup.
Starts easy and does what it says it will do.

Works Great !
I have only used this blower three times so it's early yet.
So far i really like this blower. It's light weight, good distribution of balance, powerful & starts easily.
Con: When holding this machine in your left hand, it will pull on your pants.

Good so far!
I rec'd this product as a gift a few months ago and it has worked great! I use it few times a week to keep the garage clean and remove grass debris. Very easy to handle and powerful blower. I haven't used the vac part yet, but can imagine it will work great like the rest of it.
