Wouldn't start after first use
Purchased the blower from amazon (first mistake, I could not return it. that is a different story!). First use started on first pull. I could not get it started again! I had read the reviews about trouble with the fuel line, but purchased anyway on Husqvarna's name brand. Fuel was not getting into the primer bulb or engine. All fuel lines had to be replaced after one use!! Repair facility knew exactly the problem. Not the quality I expected. I can not review the blower any further, as it was in repair during the autumn leaf blowing seeason. Purchased an Echo and have not had one prpoblem. Anyone want to buy a very slightly used Husqvarna blower??

Bought this product as an addition to my commercial equipment. Makes getting leaves out of tight and delicate spaces a breeze. I only use it as a shredder vac and it starts easily, lots of power and easy to handle. Gets debris out of beds where blowers and rakes can't reach. I have a Husqvarna backpack blower that has worked flawlessly for 3 years and that's why I chose this model. I highly recommend this unit and Husqvarna products in general.

Not worth anything
Had this bought for me as a gift last christmas. Mixed husky oil into 2 month old gas thats was well mixed before putting it in the tank. Blower took a long time starting up, ran for 30 seconds and died and wouldnt restart. Took the blower into my local shop and the tech said there was no compression. I called husak about warranty repair and rhey said it wasnt covered, that the gas was too old even though there was nothing in the manual warning against using " old gas". The only thing it says is dont keep more supply than you can use in a month but doesnt tell you why. This is how Husky stands behind their warranty- they don't. I will never buy a Husqvarna product ever, you cant trust the company to stand behind their products.

blower has plenty of power for homeowners. Starts on the third or fourth pull. Comfortable to use for extended periods.

Good value !
Used for many hours of leaf blowing and it worked like a charm. Very easy to start, easy to restart and simple to use.High quality, durable.

When using mulching bag, the tube tends to clog every five minutes. The bag's zipper broke within 2 hours of use. A tooth broke off. The mulching blade did it's job great for the first 2-3 hours, but has begun to dull and the leaves don't get chopped up as well, now. Sort of pointless to suck them up and dump them out on group as compost, if they are going to blow away again...

Works great so far. Only had it for a couple of weeks but it really works good. Only complaint is the intake of air. When blowing out the garage if there is cloths around it does suck in any fabrics that it's close to. Even your pant leg...I questioned the price but it's worth it...

Bought this at the end of the fall for clearing leaves and pine needles. Was a bit worried about purchasing due to some reviews I read where the company didn't really back warranties, but it seemed to be the best out there and I took my chance. Blower works great in clearing the leaves and needles along with helping get up matted down leaves in the grass. It is a bit loud so definitely wear ear protection. Definitely enjoying using and actually look forward to getting out in the yard and using it. Vacuum works well. I wish the bag was a bit bigger but does a good job on the piles that I can't just blow into the woods.
