You'll have to look long and hard to even come close to finding a better trimmer for any price than the Husky 323L.

I own a 223L and run it as my main trimmer, but I also have a FS90R and FS250R so it's not a brand loyalty thing for me. The 323 is the same weight as the 223 (9lbs) but has 20% more power and a solid drive shaft.

The FS130 is a lot more powerful than the FS90 is. The 90 is all anyone needs for any sane trimming powerwise, but it's heavier than the Husky 323.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.
