    I love their larger saws but then I do a lot of tree work. Do a search and hopefully you will find some info from others on the blowers & trimmers.

    i am Texas and i have seen a lot more stores carrying there ZTR's and from what i have seen and heard is very positive. They appear to give a dang good cut. there is a company cutting a golf course with them and it looks good. and the price is damm good also....

    Husqvarna z riders are actually made by FD Kees.....if yuo want one buy the Kees and save a lot of money.

    By the way..they are middle of the road in quality so the price should reflect the same...not near as heavy duty as Scag, ExMark, Great Dane etc.

    Husky makes great saws..the rest of their stuff is average at best!!

    Ihave no personal experience but one of the largest(and very successful) commercial maintenance companies here uses their handheld equipment exclusively...I guess that in itself is a pretty good indication it isn't junk

    I am looking to buy another trimmer in the next few days, and hedge trimmers. I think I may try the Husqvarna trimmers. Maybe?

    I have one of thier stick edgers and I'm not crazy about it.
    Under powered. Shield clogs easily.
    And I don't like the curved shaft.

    I can't speak on any of thier other stuff.
