Speedfeed on Husky 326L?

Has anyone put a shindy 450 speedfeed head on a Husky 326L? Do I have to purchase a special arbor to do this? The arbor I have threads on but does not bottom out.

Why would you want to? Husky's head is great. Nice and simple that works perfect and lasts as long as any trimmer head is going to. Inexpensive to boot.

I agree to an extent. My primary trimmer is an echo which has the speedfeed because all of the echo heads like the uturn are a pita to load. My back up is a husky and the stock head is tolerable to load so I keep it on. Also the speedfeed is not the most durable head so I dont want to keep dropping $28 a head on multiple trimmers.

The speedfeed is just so much quicker than any other head I have ever used. I am so used of using the speedfeed when I have to use another head I am lost.

You might need a special arbor, but that's included in the kit. Also, no need to buy an entirely new head when the bump cap starts to wear out - you can just buy that piece.

I couldn't agree more. By far the best trimmer head I have used.

Same here I love my Husqvarna T35
Has a capacity of 28 feet of .095" gauge line.
Easy to reload.
I also would like to get next a T35X it has a ball bearing resting surface.

Personally I have no need to. The Husky head is so friggin' easy to load, reliable, and tough to boot.
