Thanks. I have never ran husqvarna, and not very many people around here use them either. I think its because of dealer support because our Husky dealer sux. I might have to find another dealer and try them out.

Im not going to try and say consumer equipment is better than commercial grade stuff, but me and my family have had consumer equipment last forever(however I am buying full commercial equipment for my business). We had a Homelite handheld blower and line trimmer last 15 years of mostly homeowner use and some commercial use aswell. Snapper rear engine riders last 15-20 years. 21" walks last 20 years. BTW I personally think old stuff was made better i.e. appliances, cars, equipment etc... Companies had pride back then, now its all about money. Hopefully all of my current equipment will last a while.

the husquvarna line clasifies then residential , large property owners and commercials the 223 is large area owners and the 323L is the entry level commercial .....the absolute only difference is the shafts nothing more . and they have a lifetime replacement on the shafts and coils so it is covering most the issues and again we have never had them fail in regular maintenance situations

People keep complaining about Echo being cheap, Stihl being finiky about oil, gas and all. Complaining about Redmax of super cold nature. Why are they keep going back for more? Maybe it's time to look at other brands like Husqvarnas, Kawasaki, Robin/Makita/Dolmar, Maruyama etc. Very few complains about these!!!

i will speak for Maruyama .I dont know the line that well or the unit size it was an estimated 25cc sized engine it was $319.00 after tax I do not know the model but its your basic entry level commercial unit . It is a heavyer unit comparing to the HV line one of the reasons we stay with HV. In my dealers eyes its a copy of kawasaki trimmer........It does look alot like them but i cant say for certian .we got it in 99 when we cleaned out a old storage shed so it was free to me it run on my families farm for 9 years before it died then i asked my dealer about a new one for them and thats when i learned the price and things ,which i know has changed BUT it was a fine piece of enginering no doubt as well.

Maru has close tie to Kawasaki. All Kawasaki bp blowers made by Maru using Kawasaki engines. If you look at the parts diagram of the Maruyama 2321 and compare to Kawi 600D, they look very similar, best design.

Echo's are crap. Im not buying anything but Stihl from now on. I love the 4 Mix engines they start a run perfect every time. you can get the FS 100 RX for about $350 it has the best power to weight ratio.

I have been all stilh for 20 years. My FS85 recently had some problems staying running ( repair shop said buy a new one). Anyhow, I have followed this tread and was moving towards a Tanaka because I am 6"3" and have to do a lot of fence lines and my FS 85 was killing me. My local dealer said they never carried the long shaft model and it was almost $500. I went to Lowes and purchased the Husquvarna 223L. Started up on first couple of pulls and is just a dream. So light, my back doesn't bother me at all... in fact, it is the first time I have kept the line cutter / guard on a trimmer and it is still light and easy to use. Only have used for 10 hours, so will report back if I have any issues going forward, but so far, a very good trimmer.

I was searching on the web about Hitachi because they buy out Tanaka. One of the trimmer claimed the shaft length is 60 1/2 inches ??? That is extra long. They supposed to sell in Lowes, check it out if you have a chance.
