    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.

    I love my FS130 but anyone working for me picks the FS100rx everytime.
