I selected this Husqvarna blower because of my previous good experiences with a Husqvarna chainsaw, which i had also purchased from Sears. Among the features I liked: 1) auto-throttle is engaged when the choke is closed, which makes starting much easier, 2) vibration isolation. Upon receiving this blower, I found it was well-packed so there was no shipping damage. As usual, the fit-and-finish are top-notch Husqvarna quality. The blower is mostly pre-assembled and only requires the outlet tube to be attached using a single winged screw. The vac attachment also only requires simple assembly. But you must remove the blower tube first. (By comparison, I have an old Ryobi electric blower/vac which can switch from blower to vac mode by just flipping a lever.) A bottle of 2-stroke engine oil is also included. After assembly and fueling, the blowers started easily with only 3 pulls. Again, the auto-throttle feature helps tremendously while starting. During usage, there was still a bit more vibration than I expected (considering the engine is rubber-mounted), which was enough to numb my hand after an hour of operation. But the blower worked flawlessly - strong power, easily controlled, and restarted quickly. I think the CFM rating on this blower is pretty conservative. It is certainly as powerful as any other gas blower I've tried, regardless of the numbers. And there is no comparison to my lowly electric blower. This machine cuts my yard and driveway clean-up time in third ! Also, it is lightweight and portable enough so I used it to clean my roof too. I haven't had an opportunity to try the vacuum attachment yet. The design is rather clumsy - requiring that you hold the blower sideways and support the bag with a shoulder strap. Overall, I'm very happy with this Husqvarna blower and would certainly recommend it to others. I didn't give it a full five-star rating only because of the clumsiness of the vac attachment and the moderate vibration felt through the handle. Otherwise, it is perfect.

Been using it for about a month now. Starts really easy and runs great. Lots of power! The vac feature works better than expected and mulches the leads up well. Lots of suction and often too much because it can suck up small rocks.
Purchased this because of the brand. Was a little disappointed when I first used it , because it wouldnt idle, and had a bad hesitation when you pulled the trigger. I returned to the hardware store where I purchased it, they did a little adjusting of the carb, seems to be better, but still doesnt run as well as my husqvarna chain saws
I bought it 3 weeks ago and have been using some. Easy to start and very powerful. Perfect for what I need. Hope it lasts a long time.
Been in shop for repair longer than I've owned it. Worked once out the box then a series of issues began.
I was reluctant to buy a gas powered blower to replace/supplement my battery powered one but am very happy with my purchase of the 125BVX. While it is quite a bit noisier - the additional power - especially during the fall leaf season has been a great help. It is easy to start and the weight is manageable in my medium sized yard.
