    my Husky 385XP w/36in is a great saw, it will make fast work of almost anything wood. 6.2 hp, which is 0.4hp less than the stihl066 but it is lighter and has less vibration than the stihl, and all for about $300 less.

    I have a husqvarna trimmer, I loved the thing until it started blowing oil out of the exhaust. That stuff gets all over my shirts and arm. It is only two years old. I had 3 Stihl trimmers but I had bad luck with them, one got totaled in an accident, one I lost off the trailer (my fault), and the other one got stolen out of my shop with rest of my 2-cycle equipment. I liked the trimmer though but it was hard to start.

    the stihl trimmers are a little hard to start....however, that hard to start trend seems to be taking over in more and more stihl products latley. :rolleyes:
