    I bought a line trimmer from our local tractor supply also bought the extended warranty figuered what the hell ill try one.The manager said that if anything happens within 3yrs bring it back and they will replace it can't beat that.Trimmer works awsome 28 cc plenty of power and fairly light. Love their saws also .

    Well I was hoping for more opinions on the mowers, too bad. They are rare to see, I think I've encountered more Ferrari's than husqvarna mowers.

    So far I've owned a chainsaw (great) a hedge trimmer (works good) and recently got a 21" (cuts like crap), oh well got it from a homeowner for $150, I'll just abuse it for brush-hogging as it can be set at 4".

    I have a 52" 25hp husky and it has a little over 2000 hours on it and is just now begining to start hard. I have had it since new. I also have a 323 weed eater and it has been great as far as power to weight and has lasted 4 years for me befor breaking the flywheel. Im satified with the equipment and will purchace again.

    Not sure if that's supposed to work like that for commercial use equipment, but I did the same thing when I bought my air compressor lol
    Which, of course, 2-3 years later hasn't failed.

    Husqvarna saws are tempermental and tough to start until they get a few hours on them. Also the carb is finicky and requires fine adjustment by a good tech.
