    Does anyone have experience with the new 325LX Husqvarna trimmers? I saw one at a trade show and it seemed to have exceptional power. Is this true in the field?<p>

    Don't have experience with the 325LX, but 90% of my 2-cycle stuff is Husky. I love em!!

    Funny, I was shopping for an edger today. I too like the Husky. I have had a Husky saw since Hugo rolled through here back in '89. It's a real cutting machine and very dependable.<br>Dave, could you elaborate alittle more on this? What's your opinion on what's availble in the marketplace? Thanks!

    I have a Husky chain saw and the 245 trimmer for brush and would not recomend Husky to anyone.

    I've got two Husqvarnas, a 225L and a 122. I personally like the 122 best because of it's 9.2# weight, and still has .9HP. The 225L is an ok trimmer, but a tad too heavy. I demoed the 325 at Expo 99 and found it to be a very light and powerful unit. I'd buy one in a heartbeat. Thanks, Lynn

    Not sure about the new stuff, but the older (few years anyway) stuff was rebadged junk. My husky 41 saw is nothing but a crapsman, or Poulan, with orange paint. Live and learn. Next saw will not be a husky.<p>Bill

    Mowerup, I just purchased a Husqvarna 322L straight shaft trimmer. Has 22.5cc engine w/ a straight shaft and solid drive shaft,weighs in at only 8.4lbs,a huge plus if you will be using for long periods of time. I think that is plently of power for trimming grass. Paid $279.00. Hope this helps make your decision.

    The new 300 series trimmers are an exceptional piece of equipment. They are lighter, more powerful, quieter and THEY MEET<br>EPA. All product lines have teething problems<br>from time to time, the difference is how the dealer looks after it. These units have been out for 2 years and have had VERY little trouble.

    Mower Up, Mower Up, is that like cowboy up or something? Anyway Husky products was my virgin run back when I started out with new equipment. I've either owned or operated them all at one time or another because my dad was a dealer. The 325 is a good machine minus all the plastic molded I can't wait 2 break crap around the handle. When you need parts forget it, I had previously ordered two 325's myself but they backordered them twice so I went with Red Max<br>instead. Husky prouducts are good if you buy the high-end stuff, but grab your wallet come time 4 repairs. Try a Red Max or a Shindaiwa you'll be happier in the long run.
