    Looked at these two trimmers today. Which would you go with? Why? I will be using it for trimming purposes only.

    While I love the torque of the Stihl 4 mixer's, I'd take the Husky without hesitation. Less moving parts, lighter, and plenty of power. Solid reputation for dependability too.

    I would go with the Stihl. Going on 15 years of trouble free Stihl products. I love my 4 mixes! I call BS on the haters...

    My guys always go for the 100 for some reason just about can't get them to use anything else.

    I'll second this. My 2 employees love the 100. No dealer in my area for husky so I've never tried their products.

    I have 9 of them. They are run hard 5 days a week 10-12 hour days. Very few problems over the years. Same with the BR 600's and the pole saws. Other people may have had problems with their stuff, but I've found that 89 octane and Opti-2 work great in these machines.

    I have both and I use my Stihl more than the Husky. I love them both and they are both great trimmers but I just seem to like the torque of the stihl 4 mix better. Actually thinking about picking up another stihl trimmer before long
