bought this about 1 month ago and have used it 3 times. Starts easily, good power.
Harness is a little difficult especially if you have a bad shoulder. Tubes are difficult to remove once installed.
Bought the flat end tube but haven't tried it yet

This blower has plenty of power and is a great value.

Good power for a large yard
I had a 4 cycle that lasted 3 years. I did not like the Idea of mixing oil and gas but was told by several that they tend to be longer lasting. This one is more powerful and quieter than the the 4 cycle. I got it near the end of last year (leaf blowing season) and I am pleased so far. Another positive is it seems to be slightly lighter.

Good replacement for my stolen Echo blower
Comfortable, easy to use, like the all in one trigger control. powerful and much quieter than my previous blower. Wish it had a curved end like my previous blower.

I have only used the blower once, but it performed well. It is a little hard to mount because of its weight and the awkward reach necessary to put the second arm behind the strap. One strap has a tendency to slide off the shoulder, but that may be because the strap isn't tight enough. Some characteristics will have to be judged after gaining more experience using the machine.

Outstanding product, but still has room to improve
This blower is very powerful and easy to use, which save a lot of time for me. Although this below has great performance, the blowing tube and belt hook are not properly design. The connected tubes easily take apart during the use. The belt hook has a gap that may cause the hook detach from the blower when lifting the blower. This may result in the blower dropping from the user's back. In addition, the Husqvarna should work with the dealers or retailers to recycle the fuel bottles. It is not a good idea to throw empty fuel bottles directly into a trash can.

Have owned 3 of the middle of the road blowers. This one cuts the work in half and when you get finished you are not worn out. Pay a little more and step up to this one.

I am pleased with this blower, Easy to crank and has enough power to blow leaves, as long as you keep your pile to a normal size.
