Ergonomic Design

While using the Husqvarna 125BVx, we were impressed with how balanced it is. The tube is the perfect length and is in line with the motor, so you don’t need to twist your body or your wrists while you’re using it. Even after a full tank of gas, we didn’t feel tired or sore.

Mulching Capability

The mulching capability of the Husqvarna 125BVx is one of its biggest selling points as not many other blowers on the market even offer the vacuuming feature. It comes with a vacuum bag for collecting debris in vacuum mode, and this bag has built-in steel knives that mulch leaves and other debris as it enters the bag. This mulching action allows you to store much more material in the bag before you need to dump it. Letting you get more work done so you can finish faster.

Cruise Control

Another handy feature that the Husqvarna 125BVx provides is cruise control. The cruise control allows you to set the throttle and lock in place so you can let go of the trigger. It greatly reduces hand fatigue and allows for better control and maneuverability, especially in vacuum mode.

Difficult bag changing

The included vacuum bag is the biggest downside to this tool. It’s challenging to put on, and we installed it the wrong way several times before finally getting it right. Subsequent tries went a little easier, but it’s always a struggle. Emptying the bag is just as difficult, and you need to hold the blower with one hand while you work the zipper on the full bag with the other.
