Great quality and ease of operation
This is certainly a well made unit, good power and easy to start, when you follow the instructions. A bit fussy when it comes to fuel but that is easily overcome with fresh fuel. The only critisism is the vacuum door is a bit tough to open. You need two hands to manouver it unless it gets easier with use. This unit is easily as good as (or better than) the other big names and I've used a few.

Great leaf blower
So far this leaf blower has met my expectations. Appears to have plenty of power and starts quite easily.

Pleased So Far
I purchased this because I have a Husvarna chainsaw that I am very happy with. This blower/vac is easy to use and starts right up. The instructions leave a little to be desired, but they are good enough so you can figure it out. The vacuum works well but emptying the bag is rather tricky as it requires you to balance the blower/vac on the intake tube while you try to empty the bag. Other than that I am very pleased with the product so far. While I expect superior durability, I skipped that rating since I have only had the item for a few weeks. Gas consumption is surprisingly good!

Excellent blowing/vacuum power. Somewhat cumbersome when using as a vacuum but the sucking power makes up for it.

The Husky Blower
Great product so far. The only gripe is the way the bag is attached, which is awkward.

lives up to Husquvarna's reputation
Only ran a few tanks of gas thru it, but starts and runs very well. Works great on blowing leaves and 6" long pine needles and cones, It is not heavy enough to use as a vacuum on the needles and cones, but the salesmen said it would not suck them up, it does but I am afraid it would not live too long. I also have a 15 year old weed eater that has been trouble free and a 25 year old saw that has been nearly trouble free

Great performance and ease of use
the blower started easily the first time and every time since; it has very good power as I used it last weekend to clear leaves on over a half acre; great "gas mileage" as I can run for approximately an hour on a full tank of fuel; the vacuum set up and the tube change are very easy and the bag has very good capacity - must be almost double my old unit so I can run quite a bit longer before having to empty and the mulcher does a great job "compacting" all of the leaves

Great blower, very easy to use.
Very easy to pick up and use this blower any time you need it. I'm impressed by its power, both as a blower and as a vacuum. Starts very easily. Relatively quiet operation. One thing to remember is that you have to mix oil with the gasoline.
Only cons are that it is difficult and cumbersome to convert the blower to a vacuum. You have to insert a screwdriver to open up the fan cover, then it is difficult to hold the blower and attach the larger vacuum tube. But it does function well as a vacuum, and even has a little metal blade inside to help chop stuff up.
