But the 323 is just so light and well balanced that I can one hand it without a problem when I need to...great for reaching under low branches and down slopes.
The only problems I've had with my Husky stuff is the recoil on the 124L trimmer that I bought for my son, but that's a homeowner unit and they have since redesigned that recoil assembly. I use it as a backup unit now but it's outlasted my expectations.
My MTD is 13lb. I did no't think was all that heavy I am very strong man one of my nicknames is grille hands because my big hands and strong.
