I purhaesed this blower last fall particularly because it has a vaccume attachment. I first went to lowes where I found the 125BV without the vaccume. I then went to my local hardware store where they had 1 in stock. I was very pleased with there service, they even filled up the tank and showed me how to start it. The vaccume attachment is very useful when you have a little bit of leaves you dont want to pick up with a rake. My only complaint is when starting it I have to quickly switch from full to half choke, otherwise the engine dies. Switching to the vaccume attachment is fairly simple, you open the grille in front of the air intake, with a screw driver and attach a large tube. The tube where the air comes out is switched to the vaccume bag and off you go!

Great gift for Dad
I purchased this blower as a gift for my father. It is easy for him to use, he loves the power it provides, and it has held up nicely for him so far. A great product!

My husband has found that this blower has high power with state-of-the-art ergonomic design. It minimizes rotational force on the wrist. The 125B blower is perfect for homeowner use. It also comes with a flare nozzle for higher air speed and a Vac-Kit for vacuuming/mulching lawn debris. Recommended

A little heavy but has plenty of power. Easy to start and has a lot of wind speed.

HUSQVARNA 125BVx First Impressions
Got this as a Christmas gift and have put it to good use. Started out by vacuuming up a large pile of leaves, followed by clearing off the debris from a recent wind storm from the driveway, walks, and large gravel covered areas. Did a great job. Will have to see how the reliability and durability turn out over time, but the Lowe's rep who sold this to me is a convert from John Deere and assured me it is a good piece of machinery.

Not Left Handed Friendly
The blower works great when holding it in your right hand but being left handed it is not friendly. The start pull is designed for a right hand pull. When operating the blower and holding it in your left hand it tends to suck up you pant leg to the blower engine as that part of the blower is directly against your leg. Also, the vacuum tube is not friendly in the removal. I attached the vacuum per the instructions but then I had to take it to a service center for removal where it took brute strength to remove. I did seek help from Customer Service which was not beneficial.
