    You should be looking at no more than $450 with tax for the BR600. He's not even giving 10% off.

    Thank you !you see it the way I do .The HUSQVARNA dealer said there is big markup on this stuff.And I did say will take $450 out the door? He said do you want the keys to the store if I did that we would be swoping money so I said I see you later.

    Hey if he sold you the unit for $450 he's still making a real good profit. The BR 600 mag is sells for $499 here. At $475 plus tax you would still be paying over $500 out the door. Like I said your not even getting 10% and the normal discount should be that much, I'd go find another dealer cause he sure doesn't sound like he's interested in your business.

    Go with the stihl the husky is too heavy and bulky I've tried them both, I don't squabble over $10- $20 for handheld stuff just buy it. You've probably already wasted that much in gas shopping around. I decide what I want to buy before I go to the store usually, so as not to waste gas and time, theirs AND mine. I also go on the premise that you should have one brand of handhelds for the most part, same with mowers, this makes spare parts and maint much easier and cost effective.

    I'm like you, no need to worry over a few bucks. I buy all my handhelds from one dealer now and they take good care of me. All I ask them to do is fill the tank and start it before I leave the dealership. I've been out working and have some handheld go down and they will usually fix it on the spot for me. They also make sure that all my repairs are WARRANTY work with no out of pocket cost. I also run all Stihl with few problems, I've only had one issue with not starting and that was on an old FS55 trimmer that the screen was clogged on. Its long gone now and has been replaced with a FS100rx, which is a much better machine for daily use.
