    How is the Husqvarna? I got a big account so I needed some more tools. I went to Little river in Oxford and the Red Max 8001 I think goes for about $509 from what the salesman said and the Husqvarna I think 125L or the 300 series I forgot but he said its way better then the Echo SRM 210 which I have and this Husq goes for $269. Is that to much? Its kinda light but don't really care because I don't have a lot of lawns. I will be paying it off within 3 weeks and the program credit card gave me $3,000 to spend but I want the Red Max 8001 beast and the weed wacker and the salesman said I could only put the Redmax on a card if I buy a Husqvarna product. Is there suttin sketchy or what? My new big account I have to do a Spring cleanup by next week so I have to use a Husqvarna card soon.

    If it is the 326L, 326LS, it is not a bad price, I think it is going to be better than the Echo SRM210. Those are only 21.2cc vs Husqvarna 25.4cc. If it is 125, not that good OSH is selling for $199.

    Husqvarna, Redmax, Echo are all 2 cycles and all commercial. Won't go wrong. Make sure is 326 now, 125 is not a commercial one!!!! $269 is the cheapest I have seen so far, you can't go wrong.

    If it's $269 it sounds more like a 223L, or maybe a discounted 323L. The 326LS/and or LX (LS with soft grip handle) does better in heavy grass than the 323 does as it has more torque even though they're rated the same size in CC and HP. The 223 is just a 323 with a cable drive instead of the steel shaft.

    I think it was a 223L or a 224L Husq Weed wacker. He said $269

    Get the 326 or 326L, you'll be happy with it. Lots of torque, quick revving, light, balanced...
    I'm going into my third year w/ my 326, no problems at all.

    Yup...nice trimmers. The current one is the 326LS. They did away with the LX units which were kind of a waste as they were $20 more but only have the extra rubber grip on the handle and that was it. Anyone had any experieince with the 335LS? I'm a husky dealer but haven't sold more than 10 of em yet and have no feedback except the half hr I demoed one when they first came out.
