    Anyone ever have much luck with Husky blowers? How do they compare to Stihl?

    I'm interested in hearing this as well they both make outstanding chain saws and they are the only brand in that area I would take over my beloved stihl. As for blowers I only have half the story I own 4 stihl br420s they are awesome but I haven’t seen the Husquavarnas yet in action.

    I've really never heard anything great about Husquavarna trimmers or blowers to be honest....Stihl seems to be better in that market space...the best trimmer on the market is Red Max....bigger engine and made to last

    All of the handheld equipment I use is Husqavarna. Here are some of my observations. I have the 165 blower and I would buy it again. The only downside is no attachments like a gutter cleaning kit. The only piece of husky equipment I don't love is the double sided hedge trimmer works great but i wish it was lighter. I know they are not talked about on here like some of the others but don't let that discourage you. The reason I started using them is because of my local dealer. If I have any problems he will drop whatever he is working on to help me out. Have not regretted it yet and I will keep right on using them.

    I am also interested in reviews on Husky. I feel they are a quality product as they are made in Sweden. The swedes take great individual pride in their work.

    I just wonder how they compare "in the field" against other brands that may put more into R&D and build equip. w/a specific eye on the commercial lawn industry.
