    I have a 3 year old 325LX, and a 2 year old 322L. I also have echo and shindaiwa trimmers, but the Huskys are the only things that get used any more. They are light, well balanced, very fast, and plenty of power. I would definitely demo one and see for yourself.

    If you've done a search you already know how I feel. I've had Homelite HBC30, Echo 2501, Echo 2601, Tanaka TBC250, Shindaiwa T231, and a Husqvarna 325L. The Husky is the best balanced, lightest, did I mention lightest, most powerful one of the whole bunch.

    I have a Husky322L and a325L The 322 is three years old and is my personal favorite (its the lightest). If I'm in heavy stuff I Use the 325.

    I have one 326 and it does a good job, it is light and quick. My complaint with it is the fuel capacity, they should have made it bigger IMO.

    Had one for a year...the trimmer bogged down so much it was pathetic. The dealership and a 2 stroke specialist could not find the problem! A buddy of mine in Tallahassee had the same thing happen. I traded it in for a Robin. Been very happy with the Robin but demo'd a Tanaka trimmer. It is even lighter than the Husqvarna. The head for the trimmer is easier to replace and rethread.

    Oh,,,and the fact that Home Depot is now stocked with Husq. does not give me any confort.

    I'm going on my 4th season on a 325.
    The gas tank is small, but that does get you back to the truck for a drink on those big jobs.
    power, price, and performance are all top notch.
    I have a good dealer too.
