    Hey, any solid reviews on the husquvarna 323l trimmer? Far as power, quality, durability?

    I've had mine for a year now. IMO, it's the perfect machine for trimming lawns, very light yet powerful. It doesn't have quite enough power for heavy weed whacking, but is great for trimming. I had to replace the recoil starter a couple months ago. That seems to be a weak point on them. But I would definitely buy another one.

    my favorite trimmer for daily use. I use a 326 which is the same thing but with a skidplate

    Weight - awesomely light
    Power - pretty good
    Quality/durability - shorter life expectancy for us than almost any other brand we use but they are so nice

    I'm still using this 322 that's at least 10 years old. Love it.

    overall I like my 326. I'm cutting grass and weeds up to 3' tall with just the normal line. It seems to run on the rich side but I've been afraid to lean it out since it already gets really hot around the muffler. Also sometimes I have to manually let the line out by that could be how I'm winding it or the line I'm using.

    I have the 323 L and love it. Nice and light and good for trimming maintained lawns. I can one-hand it down slopes and under low limbs. I wish the fuel tank was larger though.

    I agree. I love the Husky's I've collected over the last few months. Although I'm trying out the new Stihl 94's that weigh 10.1 lbs next. Huskies have been great, light, enough power for weekly/biweekly lawns, and have been pretty durable. As far as starting? They always start and run, never an issue. I do agree the recoil is a weak point. Are you replacing the whole recoil assembly or just the spring? I had one break just last week. I threw it in the truck and came home and broke it down. Rather then replacing the whole assembly, I inspected it further this time. Problem was the "round" spring that circles around and around. That spring makes circles, well the spring had bent a little bit out of shape, almost un-noticable unless you look at it really close. That spring laps over and over. Well it came unlapped on one of the springs and was causing the rope to not wind, rewind properly and the pull rope would just get stuck when you pull.

    Rather then replacing the whole assembly again at $40.00, I replaced that spring at $6.00 and it solved the problem. So keep that in mind next time if you've been replacing the whole assembly. Other then that I have no other complaints about the Huskies. :drinkup:
