Hey Noahb195 i have and use daily the husky 426LST and i love it. For years I have only used stihl's but last summer my trimmer was a ***** to start and i was getting mad and one day went to the husky dealer and got the 426 and since that day I have only been happy. Its got lots of power, one thing you have to do is choke it to start. You could use it for a hour then let sit for 15 minutes and you will have to choke it but it starts on first or second pull everytime. Someone metion it was a redmax and he is right husky bought them out and just put the husky cover on it. All in all it is a great machine.
