fuel lines deteriorate in less than a year
In less than a year of average residential use the engine stopped running. Clearly wasn't getting fuel. I am pretty handy so I took it apart. The fuel lines have deteriorated and disintegrated at the cap. I use regular gasoline (10% ethanol) and top grade oil. It seems ridiculous that they would put in a fuel line that would not withstand ethanol as that is all I can buy unless I go to a marina. I'll fix it with a fuel line of higher quality. This is a 5 cent part at manufacture that has made me not want to buy another Husky.... too bad.

I used to use an Electric blower, but this is so convenient, I would never go back to an electric on againg. Many times I should have used a blower to clean up, but it was a hassle. Not I pick up the Blower, prime it and pull the rope and there I am is half the time as it takes go get the extension cord out before. When I'm done, I just shut it off and set it down. The power is twice as good also.

Mixed the gas & oil as instructed in owners manual, put it in the machine & it started right up and ran beautifully. For a gas blower it worked as expected, can't wait to try it this fall as a vacuum when the leaves start to fall here in Michigan. I would have to say its the best value out there in a gas powered blower/vac.

Poor Warranty and Poor Husqvarna Customer Support
I'm trying to get Husqvarna to honor their 2-yr warranty. Within a year of purchase, the blower leaked fuel. Recently took it to an authorized service agent, who said the fuel line and carburetor needed replacement. When I mentioned the warranty, the agent said Husqvarna "usually don't cover use of 10% ethanol fuel." But that is what most of the U.S. has at the pump. I argued for the agent to ask Husqvarna. That was over a month ago and I'm without a critical yard tool. I called customer support at 800-487-5951, and they were absolutely no help, stating they "have no access to the service orders, warranty requests or the phone numbers. Those are only for authorized service agents." Meanwhile, the service agent states that Husqvarna has not authorized the service work under warranty.

Nice upgrade from my 10 yr old Craftsman
Works well, quiet. Haven't used the vacuum function yet.

Great product for the money.
I am very pleased with the Husqvarna 125 blower. It performs as it should. One down feature is your clothing can and will get sucked into the intake. Not a big deal but occurs after your hand/arm gets tired and you allow the blower to get up aganist your legs. Other than that, its great. I also purchased the gutter blowing attachment. Works very good, I recommend it as well.

Excellent entry level blower
I bought the Husqvarna 125BVx after reading many reviews on many websites. Website after website had this as their top rated blower. So far I've used it for many applications, cleaning gutters, blowing out garage, driveway and grass and it's performed beyond my expectations. It's very lightweight where anyone could use it, yet has plenty of power. It's simple to start and breezes through everything I've thrown at it so far. I would highly recommend this to someone looking for a blower for various applications around their house.
