Purchased this blower a year ago. Like many others the fuel lines failed resulting in needed repairs with just over a year of ownership however, I live in Michigan which really means 4-months at (1) use per week. The repair was not that difficult but again, this is a realtively new unit! Remember, one of the advantages of buying new is supposed to be that you "Don't have to work on it"! Although when new it started fairly well, post repair it is a bit more difficult to start?
I don't have time to focus on keeping a "new" leaf blower running and I'm sure you don't either. My recommendation is to avoid Husqvarna and seek out another brand.

Best Blower hands down
I did a ton of research before deciding to buy this blower and it is by far the best blower hands down after having it for a few days. The specs are by far the best out there and the overall design fit and finish is extremely impressive. I compared this and the Echo brand and for the money this has almost 100cfm more "quantity" of are than the echo# I tested the echo brand and you can tell a big difference in the reduction of cfm's compared to this model# Higher Cfm's and higher wind speed"Mph" and Husqvarna quality = win.
I bought it from my local dealer who had one left in stock. I bought the fuel for extended warranty deal too. 4year warranty now.

A Great Performer
Like many, my initial use of this machine was fraught with stoppages. The first time, it only ran for 45 seconds. This was caused by a poorly positioned fuel filter near the fuel filler. Running it with half a tank of gas caused the filter to suck air and cavitate causing the stoppage. Once the fuel filter was repositioned, boy what a machine! My only grumblings is the blower tube, while adequate, it could be better designed. My decision to purchase this model was based on my previous experience using Husqvarna's 128LD String Trimmer. Both have proven to be really easy to start and maintain.

the 125bvx starts easily
I originally owned the 125b. It was 10 months old and would not start. I discovered the hose with attached filter, located in the fuel tank, had become detached and could not suck fuel into the carburator. The Lowes store was kind enough to give me a 125bvx in exchange for the 125b.
So far, the 125bvx works great.

For a residential blower, it has the power of a commercial blower.
I purchased the 125B back in the summer and had some issues with it starting after it was laying on it's side. I thought it was flooded with gas, but after working with it for quite awhile discovered it was something internal. I ended up taking it back and they replaced it with the upgraded model. The 125BVx. I still never knew what happened to it, but since I had the warranty I figured it was no big deal. Since having this blower I have enjoyed the 2-in-1 features. With a simple transition, you can go from a blower to a vacuum!
