Blower Was Okay, But the Husqvarna warranty was terrible!
This blower worked great for the first three months I had it. I used it about five times to blow my driveway and walkway and vacuumed some leaves. The blower was really powerful. The vacuum sucked up and mulched leaves okay, but got clogged a few times. However, during the sixth time I used it, the engine just shut off. It was leaking fuel and would not start again, so I took it to one of the Husqvarna repair centers, and they told me the fuel line had failed and that fuel lines were not covered under warranty. The service guy said he has repaired several of these with the same problem, so it sounds like a manufacturer's defect. It was repaired and is working good now, but the whole experience left a bad taste in my mouth. Be aware!

It's got the power
The blower starts great every time. I use the blower to clean up everything. It's got good power and control, love piling leaves with it! Great power tool.

I love the easy start and the way it it handles. The power it great for blowing the leaves off my property and it is light enough so it does not strain your shoulder if you use it for a long period. It can also be used as a vacuum.

Disappointed with initial startup
After researching blowers on the internet, I decided to spend a little more and purchase the 125BVX model. The blower looks great. But, I had a hard time starting the blower, after carefully following the instructions. Once started, the blower would reverberate, with the air speed swinging at a constant trigger setting. Called tech service : They gave me two shops to have the carburetor adjusted. I called them both - one would not do the work, the other one was closed due to a fire. I am not very happy.

If only it would idle....
Would give item 5 stars if I could get it to idle. I returned my original purchased blower for the same reason. Runs great while the choke is engaged. It runs great at full throttle. The problem starts when you let it idle. If it idles for more that 5 to 10 seconds, it shuts off. Mixed 3 different cans of gas with the same result. Guess its just one of those things.

This Blower is POWERFUL!!!
Best handheld blower!!! Very easy to start. The power is Super Strong which makes my yard work a breeze. Vibration is a minimum to the arms. Have not yet used the vacuum, but sure look forward to the fall leaves!
