    What size do you have now? is it a 4"? 90+% of all Commercial trimmers come with a 4" head although Red Max has a 6" I think it may use a bit too much power. Have you thought about the Shindaiwa speed feed head? you don't have to take the whole head apart to replace the trimmer line. How many cc's is your trimmer? Let me know how many cc's and I may be able to help you.

    Well, They have an adapter that fits Echo machines and the heads that Husky uses look like the same ones that echo uses. I'm pretty sure that the speed feed would work just like on my Echo 2601. All the extra little part does is decrease the diameter of the arbor inside the speed feed head. If you have a Shin dealer close you could go and talk with them or call around.

    On a side note I run Echo's .105 Cross Fire in my speed feed head and it does just fine.

    The 125L is a homeowner model trimmer not a commercial model

    Any Echo/Veri head should work for you. Although I don't use your particular Husky model, I do use Echo/Veri heads on all my Huskies though.

    The older Huskies used to come with the Echo heads, don't know why they switched.
