Past and Present
Had purchased a less expensive backpack however was not pleased and certainly it did not perform long. One of those things it was cheaper to replace than have repaired.
I did research on finding my next backpack blower and was prompted to buy this blower based upon reviews and companies history. Certainly this blower does support all great reviews on 1st start, light and ideal for the everyday needs. I also believe it is more economical on gas. Not a biggie but saves on having to fill often.

This blower was simple to assemble and has enough power to take care of most any thing you put in its way. It has been a great addition to our yard equipment and has simplified cleaning up after our regular yard maintenance.

No customer service Wont honor Warrenty!
I bought this last summer. used for 2 months until season was over here. stored under roof in shed.I HAVE OWNED FOR LESS THAN A YEAR. When I took out for this season last week I could not get to start. since I bought from Lowes I called husqvarna to find out warrenty. (2YEAR WARRENTY). They said to take to a dealer. The dealer said the engine was shot and would not be covored under warrenty due to bad fuel. PLUS charged me a $20 Service fee to look at it. I use same fual in 2 weed eaters and 2 chainsaws. NO PROBLEM WITH ANY OF THEM.

This machine is tough.
I used my first 125BT Husqvarna blower for 4 years with my yard service. It was very dependable. I had the cracked engine housing held together with wire for a year. The seals finally started leaking so I bought a new 130BT. The 130 is very quiet and has nice power. I always use electrical tape to seal all the joints as I assemble the nozzle.

Excellent piece of equipment!!!
This is by far the best back pack blower I have ever used. The easiest to start, great comfort, easy to maneuver during use and lite weight. After three back surgeries all these things make a huge difference between doing it yourself or paying someone to do it for you. After my first purchase and use my plans are to replace every piece of lawn equipment I own with Husqvarna products.
