    I have been out of the commercial business since 1994, when did Husky start making good commercial equipment?

    That fs130 is 12cc larger, is it better to have that many more cc for power? Or is 25cc plenty?

    Husky has been making great hand helds for quite a while now. The 327 is probably a great trimmer too, but most of us use the 223,323 or 326 because (especially) for the price, you can't get a better trimmer that has as much power, or is as light in weight. Their T-35 bump head is the best on the market for reliability, ease of loading and feeding.

    I can't help you there. I've never run one. I've never seen anyone else mention using one either.

    I run the redmax 23cc with a shindiawa speed feed head and am very happy with it . the speed feed is a must if never have ran one for the fact it pays out string MUCH easier than the pita rmax heads . that said ive been running rmax whips only for over a decade so've nothing to compare them to
