    Yep, this is another thread about a trimmer. Anybody use the 426LST? I was looking at them today online. And they seem to be fairly low priced at $380.00 a piece. I was just wondering if they hold up and have good power.

    Thanks,
    Noah

    I use a 323L and love it, wouldn't use any other trimmer. Plenty of power, runs like a raped ape, light weight and inexpensive ($279). I've ran several over the years and they just won't wear out.

    I went on the web, Husky has the 224 for $329. It is a 4 cycle, I believe it is still the Honda GX25 like the 324. That's good price.

    I bought a Husqvarna 323L a couple days ago and I'm happy with it so far, its much better than the crappy Tanaka TBC-255PF I had before....that Tanaka was a complete piece of junk since the first day I got it.

    I went and look up 426LST. I believe it's Redmax re-badged as Husqvarna. I would get the 323, 223, 326 over the Redmax. It is not that RM is bad, it has a strato engine that quite a few people here has starting problems and long warmup. People said you have to bring it in for adjustment to get it run right. The original Husqvarna has none of these problems. So I would stay with 326, 323 or even 223. For one, they are cheaper than 426. Go do a search on 223, 326 here. You will not find a negative post on these. Absolutely reliable. 223 is only $249 and the others are under $300.
