I wouldnt say the husquarvna are even close compared to stihl or redmax. I had a 326 top end burn out in a year and half of use. My redmax is from 2007 and is running fine.
One Husky doesn't prove much. As a whole, they are every bit as good as Stihl and RM, and many of us feel they are better. You'll find far
more posts on LS about Stihls (and even RM these days) giving problems than you will any about Husky. That said, I have not had any trouble from any of my 4 mix stuff........yet.
