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!

Great product but not easy to open cover to attach vac.
Requires use of screwdriver to release cover. Need to
have a finger pull to eliminate use of another tool.

Off to a poor start
Blower was purchased 2 1/2 weeks ago. A couple days later I tried to operate it using fresh gas mixed with the supplied two stroke oil. It started on the second pull and then ran for about 45-60 seconds after I took the choke off. I restarted it and it ran about 15 seconds before dying after which I could not get it restarted(yes I followed instructions for a flooded engine). Following the owners manual, I took it to an authorized service centre. They went to the back and started it, ran it for a minute and returned it saying it was set a little lean and it was good now. I tried it the next day and it still would not run for more than a minute. I returned it to the authorized service centre and explained that nothing had changed from my first visit. They said I would have to leave it.
They wrote out a work order and took the blower. The rep. Advised that there would be a $40.00 deposit required and it would be 3-4 weeks. I feel so stupid for accepting this but I left it. I am so angry that I bought a new blower to use that doesn't have 5 minutes of total time on it. I don't have a blower for 3-4 weeks and they have my $40.00 deposit. This has left a bitter taste for my relationship with Husqvarna.

The 125BVx really Blows
I have used this for one month now and have finishes the leaves and even used it on 2" of fluffy snow and it has worked great so far.

125BVx is solid overall
I purchased the 125BVx after reading various positive reviews from professionals and amateurs alike. While not to be confused with commercial models, for the consumer with a dozen or so trees in their yards this makes quick work of several leaf types without the hassle of dragging a power cord around.

I have one acre with 6 adult trees. When I use my blower it will run for several hours at a time. It starts easy and runs smooth.
