    I've been thinking of trying a Husqvarna trimmer. Before everyone starts screaming stihl, redmax, echo and shindaiwa, I've found the 323 pro-trimmer weighs only 9 lbs. and $279.00 and I believe 1.2 hp. Anyone with any experience with these?

    323s are very good units. I am seriously looking at getting 1 of these in the next couple weeks.

    well i picked up a 324 at TSC about four weeks ago and I returned it last week because it was a royal POS. Had no power and never knew when it was going to run. Manager was cool. No questions asked. Promptly left and went straight to my Stihl dealer and picked up a FS 110 and it actually cost LESS! Go figure.

    I have never heard of a 324, most likely some china crap just for TSC. I have two 326L's and can't say enough about them.

    I've got 3 Husky 323's and one is going on its 7th season. No real problems to date, just put gas in and they start on 2nd pull, even after sitting all winter.

    I now have 2- 323L's. By far they are the BEST trimmers Iv'e ever operated. Lightweight, loads of power, and the head comes apart super easy.

    I just bought my newest one at TSC (because we don't have any other Husqvarna dealer around here). Not as happy with it though... The fuel line is the black rubber kind and is wound up like a cork screw and I can't get it straightened, like it was off the end of the roll. Looks like I'm going to have to replace it, the fuel filter tends to be at the top of the tank with it and sucks air...

    What cracks me up is that so many guys ASSUME that the Husqvarna handheld stuff is the same as the POS equipment that's turned out of Nebraska. It's NOT. The handhelds are made in SWEDEN.

    The 324L models is their 4 stroke trimmers. Yes, they are odd, they don't use a mix, it uses straight gas and has an oil reservoir.

    One thing Iv'e found with ALL small equipment, you MUST give it TIME to break in before you claim that it's lacking power! I find that it takes several tanks of fuel before the power really starts to come on and it runs right.
