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.

The best blower/vac
I have only run two tanks for fuel through my blower, thus I have only listed the durability as "average." I don't think it fair to rate it better when it is so new, but it seems very well built and I don't anticipate any future issues. It is loud, but I just rock the headphones and forget about it. It can be a little difficult to fit the vacuum tube when new (pretty much need a second set of hands). Starts right away and the 50:1 fuel mix is the same as my chainsaw so I don't have to buy yet another gas can.

I am very happy with my purchase. This blower is the best, it cut my yard work time in half! It has much more power than my old electric blowers.

this product is the best blower/vac I have purchased
I needed to replace a different maunufacturers blower/vac for home use; previous blower/vacs(3 or4) lasted about 2-3 seasons; I read reviews and was looking for a higher quality blower/vac; I read good reviews about this model; initially I used the blower feature of the unit and it worked very well with the grass and leaves; I used the vac this fall and this product is superior to other models I have had; the vac tube was a little hard to attach but once it was attached it worked great; I liked the ease of the two handed operation with the vac; I also liked the way it mulched the leaves - the bag size was adequate and opened fully for easy removal of the mulched leaves; I believe the evidence of a quality product (that I have noticed so far) should mean it will continue to perform better and last longer than previous blower/vacs I had purchased
