    Anyone have one of these? I am looking for another blower and was surprised at the CFU numbers that were displayed by this unit. It is much higher than Redmax. Am I missing something? Everyone I know swears by Redmax but these numbers got my attention. So far the only thing that I noticed is that it is rated as a homeowner unit.

    I have one. It's fine for day to day use, blowing grass clippings off driveways. But you wouldn't be able to use for leaf clean-ups.

    Oh. The only thing I really know about Husky is you can buy them at Lowes, Home Depot or someplace like that. I do have an older Husky 36 chain saw that I picked up used one time.

    Handheld? I have it and it's a backpack.

    This was one of the first backpack blowers we had. Ran great, but just no match once the leaves come.

    It is OK for the driveway. Had been very reliable and easy to start.

    It is a handheld! Brand new, most have not seen or used one.

    This is supposed to be Huskys design and the only blower in there lineup that is their own except for the 356 baackpac blower, all others will be rebadged Redmax units (all backpack blowers) except for maybe the 125BT I think (backpack) that is "theirs"

    Here is the 125BT backpac http://www.usa.husqvarna.com/products_homeowner_product_details.aspx?pid=1179

    Dont know why anyone buys a 25cc backpac blower but Oh well.

    hahaha

    I am a dealer and have not seen one yet. Have not carried the Husky blowers because they have not been as good as others. Dont think I will carry this one either, have to see how it is when the classes start.
