I purchased this blower,for a few reasons, 1st I used to own a Husqvarna morotcycle, and loved it. Second I was tired of dragging an electric cord around for my electric blower. Third i like the vacuum feature for clean ups. The blower starts easily and has lots of power. It can get a little heavy to carry, so if you do allot of yard work perhaps a backpack model would serve you better. I am very pleased with my purchase, and would recommend it to anyone.

This is my second unit.
The first 125BVx that I owned was seven years old, it finally died on me after much residential use. I was so pleased with the unit I decided to replace it with the same model, I hope this unit gives me the same satisfaction.

Another quality Husqvarna tool in my arsenal
Purchased the 125BVx Blower/Vac to replace a 10 year old blower vac that finally gave out. This blower has about the same power as my old unit did, but is lighter, easier to handle, quieter and built much better. Hope to get at least the same 10 year life out of this one. I am a homeowner who uses the blower weekly for about 15 minutes at a time to blow off my patio & driveway after mowing.

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.
