    I've ran them for 13 years now and love em. Light, powerful, affordable, durable as hell and easy to use and maintain. 326 series. I still run my first one I ever bought on a daily basis. i have four now. I keep putting attachments on and leaving them. I keep two dedicated trimmers, one power broom and one with a blade.

    You can buy a lot of Husky equipment at Lowe's or TSC.

    any local small engine/mower place can work on husqvarna trimmers from what i've seen through the years. nothing really goes bad on them if you take care of them. when i worked for another company that's all we ever used. my dad has the 323L. if i were gonna use a 2stroke trimmer i would get the husqvarna 326L.

    either one is good. it just comes down to personal preference. the husqvarna's are lighter. the 326L is 9 lbs....the stihls are about 10-11lbs. my honda is 13lbs. the weight isn't that much of an issue. a difference of 1-2 lbs is hardly noticeable.
