    Comments about Husqvarna Backpack Blower 25cc, 140 Mph, Model#:

    I use to have a handheld leafblower - it worked on the small stuff, but my my home is at the edge of the forest and I am surrounded by trees. The leaves pile up and the hand held was never powerful enough to move much more than a layer or two. I decided to invest in a backpack blower, and it has made all the difference! I can move piles of leaves with little effort. The blower starts with just a couple of pulls. It fits easily on my back and the weight distribution makes it feel as though it is hardly there. I can use it for hours without getting an arm cramp; like when using a handheld. I researched lots of brands and decided to go with the brand the pros do. You should too!

    Comments about Husqvarna Backpack Blower 25cc, 140 Mph, Model#:

    I absolutely love this leaf blower. It is so extremely powerful and is so easy to use. I am not extremely strong, but am easily able to wear this backpack blower and still move around freely. I can easily use the long tube where the air comes out. It has great length so it can easily reach the ground and move whatever you are trying to move. It can easily push leaves across grass, it can remove clippings and I have even seen it move small branches! It is well worth the investment if you mow a ton of lawns for your business like I do. I have also used this during the winter when light, dusty snow falls and it easily pushes all the snow into larger piles. It does not burn up a whole bunch of gas either and runs for a very long time on one tank. I would highly recommend this model if it is within your price range.

    Ease of Use
    This is so easy to use and I have never required help from someone else to put it on even though I am not that strong. Very easy to use once you learn how.

    Durability
    Lasts forever.

    Gets the job done... and more!

    By

    Comments about Husqvarna Backpack Blower 25cc, 140 Mph, Model#:

    After owning a few smaller leaf blowers I finally decided to pay a bit more and get something with extra power (and more comfort). This machine is great... easy to start and maintain. And much more comfortable to use given the shoulder straps. I can easily and quickly clean up our yard and get behind all the bushes/shrubs - love it.

    Weight
    It's heavier than other machines I've owned but with the shoulder straps that doesn't bother me.

    Performance
    Great power, easy to start. Haven't had any issues to date. Given the size of the gas tank i'm able to clean-up our entire yard without refilling which is nice. It's also great for blowing out the garage.

    Handling
    This machine is easy to handle and maneuver around tight places. I'm able to clean up the open yard area but also work in the flowers beds easily.

    Ease of Use
    Super easy to use. Starting is easy, controlling the power is easy. Def the best blower I've owned.

    Durability
    So far so good - I've only had it for one season but maintenance has been easy.

    Another great huskie product!

    Comments about Husqvarna Backpack Blower 25cc, 140 Mph, Model#:

    We bought this blower shortly after moving to a house in the country. We own two acres, and have plenty of maple and oak trees to make a mess each fall. After owning it for 5 years, it still runs great and has not let us down.

    Weight
    I am female, 5'7'' and a little over weight, but i can handle this bad boy. The trick is in adjusting the backpack straps properly so that it suits your center of gravity. I can run this for about 2 hours before getting tired, but i usually run out of gas before then.

    Performance
    As the years have passed, my machine works as great as day one. It is a powerful blower without being crazy loud.

    Handling
    This machine is very easy to operate, and the only thing is that the trigger action can make your hands tired after a while. Luckily, there is a cruise control type of setting so you can jut leave it on at the setting of your choosing. I use this often and really love this feature!

    Ease of Use
    I dislike pull-start engines, but it works great so i cant gripe too much!

    Durability
    We care for all our engines carefully, and this machine is no different. After 5 years of use and storage, we could not be happier!

    We love this blower, we have tried various blowers on large and small areas and this one does the job and does it well. The ability to put it on your back saves your arm from all the pull and you are not fighting a cord to get the lightweight electric blower. I have even tried to convince my husband we could use this instead of sweeping out our house, he's not thinking this would be the best idea.

    Weight
    The weight for this unit is not a lot greater than the gas powered handheld units and being able to center it on the body helps greatly. Once you have it on it does not pull at you too much and working the arm is easy.

    Performance
    This machine just keeps going for us, which says a lot as the previous machines have rarely made it through two seasons.

    Handling
    Works like a charm, toss it up on your back and get to work.

    Ease of Use
    I love the backpack unit! This saves my shoulder and my back which both were pulled by the previous gas powered handheld machines.

    Durability
    It has made it through two years of heavy yard work so far and looks like we are going to head into the third with this still running, this is amazing since we have been previously replacing blowers partway through each second year.

    Great Product

    Comments about Husqvarna Backpack Blower 25cc, 140 Mph, Model#:

    I've had my Husqvarna backpack blower for nearly 10 years. I have ALOT of leaves so it's been put to the test. Never had a problem, still starts first time every time. It does get a little heavy on the back after several hours of continuous use. If it died tomorrow, I'd buy another just like it.

    You get what you paid for with Husqvarna

    Comments about Husqvarna Backpack Blower 25cc, 140 Mph, Model#:

    I have had a number fo leaf blowers over the years, but nothing compares to a really good one. With the Husqvarna, I get really easy starting and a powerful force to move leaves and other debris. The unit is quiet, but really powerful. It is also light enough that it is not a problem to carry around on you rback in the yard. It does not smoke much and the engine seems to be responsive. In addition to all that it just starts on the first or second pull no matter what the temperature is  or how wet it is outside. If I could describe a perfect unit, this would be it. Parts and accessories seem to be widely available and they also seem to have a good service organization-- although I really haven't needed it. The unit is more expensive than some, but the real cost needs to be evaluated over time, not just the initial purchase. This one really makes the grade and that is why i would recommend it highly.

    Best way to clean leaves out of gutters!

    By 

    from Granite Falls, NC

    Comments about Husqvarna Backpack Blower 25cc, 140 Mph, Model#:

    The Husqvarna 125B Handheld Blower is light and easy to handle. We live in a rural settling with lots of leaf producing trees. Just being able to blow the leaves into our flower beds to protect our plants lets us save money by not having to buy mulch. Also, it is so light we use it to blow the leaves out of the gutters---we have to get on the roof to do this so being light is a plus. The orange color would help us find it if we forgot where we put it (haven't done that yet, but you never know!). It has been very dependable and always starts without a lot of problems. My husband has even offered to go to my parents house to blow leaves---I think he feels like it is a grown man's toy---he has a good time with it.

    This great blower has cut my work in half

    By 

    from Boca Raton, FL

    Comments about Husqvarna Backpack Blower 25cc, 140 Mph, Model#:

    The **Husqvarna 125 gas powered hand held leaf blower** combines high power with state-of-the-art ergonomic design.  The blower tube is engineered to be in line with the handle, minimizing rotational force on the wrist. 

    We do all of our own yard work and we are proud of our lawn and garden, but having to rake and sweep up the cut grass and leaves after we were through cutting the grass was adding a lot of extra work.  So, I did my research and went out and bought this as a gift for my hubby (and for me!!!!).

    Features include:

    Inline design:  The fan housing is engineered so that the air stream is in line with the handle.  This reduces stress on the arm and wrist.

    Auto return stop switch:  Stop switch automatically resets to the ON position for easier starting.

    Cruise Control:  Fan speed can be set for easier handling.

    Adjustable tube length:  The blowing tube length is adjustable for best performance.

    Intuitive Controls:  All the controls are well gathered and easy to access.

    The power output is 1.1 hp and the weight of the unit is 9.4 lbs.

    Now, instead of spending another half hour to 45 minutes cleaning up, we are through in a jiffy and it saves our energy.  I am very happy I made this purchase.

    I would definitely recommend this to anyone who does their own yard work and needs help cleaning up the leaves and cut grass.

    Looking out my kitchen window, I see my backyard covered in leaves and straw.  I groan to myself "Great just another chore to add to my neverending list!"  I walk outside and the choice was clear- either a rake or use my new Husqvarna Back Pack Blower..The rake would leave callouses and blisters on my already suffering hands.  The blower only required a pull on the pull string and a hoist onto my back. Well I decided to go with the blower and was very pleased to find it cranked with one pull and when hoisted onto my back, that it was very easy to manuever with no back strain!  So off I went across my backyard and acorss my garden and flower beds blowing the4 unwanted leaves and straw as well as any landscaper.  The hose on the blower was very easy to use- able to hold onto easily and move back and forth with complete comfort.  Now when I look across my yard from my kitchen window, I now see a beautifully kept yard without the dread and anxiety of the work involved for it to look so good!
