I've ran them for 13 years now and love em. Light, powerful, affordable, durable as hell and easy to use and maintain. 326 series. I still run my first one I ever bought on a daily basis. i have four now. I keep putting attachments on and leaving them. I keep two dedicated trimmers, one power broom and one with a blade.

You can buy a lot of Husky equipment at Lowe's or TSC.

any local small engine/mower place can work on husqvarna trimmers from what i've seen through the years. nothing really goes bad on them if you take care of them. when i worked for another company that's all we ever used. my dad has the 323L. if i were gonna use a 2stroke trimmer i would get the husqvarna 326L.

either one is good. it just comes down to personal preference. the husqvarna's are lighter. the 326L is 9 lbs....the stihls are about 10-11lbs. my honda is 13lbs. the weight isn't that much of an issue. a difference of 1-2 lbs is hardly noticeable.

While we're talking Husky. How about that 150BT Blower? If your cheap like me you can get a 223l, 150bt for like $550. Than you just pray a lot and hope no big repairs come up... :P

There's nothing wrong with either of those two choices. If you are a solo operation, they'll do 95% of anything that needs doing for general lawn care.

Lisen dude, im 14 just like you so I know where your coming from. Think about something. Have you ever see what your state runs. I have found the if it holds up for the state highway and ROW maintenance crews, it will hold up for you to.If you look at what they run, they are all using premium stuff. Most all states/gov. run Stihl, even in Canada. I personally love my FS90R , and would never buy from lowes or homedepot.

Over the last 20 some years I've used Echo, Stihl, Shindawia and Kawasaki trimmers. After trying a Husqvarna 323L I've never even thought of going back to any of those other brands. I've been strictly a Husky man for the last 6 or 7 years. Never had any problems with them. They always start on the first or second pull and you can't beat the power to weight ratio. I even prefer the current trimmer head on them compared to the Shindy Speed Feed head. I can actually refill the head on my Husky quicker than the Speed Feed head.

We use RedMax but given the choice between Husqvarna and Stihl I would choose Stihl. I don't buy anything that my local dealer can't repair. If husky doesn't have a dealer near by, go with Stihl. I agree with exmarkboy13, I would never buy equipment from HD or Lowes.

It will cost you to repair a stihl what you can buy a new husqvarna for. I have a 326l and a 327e both have never been touched one year old. I also have a 323l and bt150 they're 4 years old and all have been on an open trailer. I haven't even had to replace the primer bulb and I don't even use the bulb anyway. The stihls have crappy carbs and the dealer will always blame the fuel forget about trying to use the warranty. Guess what I use cheap 87 and pensoil marine oil and never had a problem yet. There isn't anything to service on a handheld really. If you mean repair then I guess your stuck with stihl if you can't work on a simple weedeater.
