    I've been running Tanaka for the last 20+ years and have not found any others to last as long.

    Husqvarna 326ls I have an 06 with around 3000 hours and runs like a champ. I now have 2 and a 327ls. Great light weight yet very powerful trimmer!

    i have stihl km130 and echo srm265t and like the echo more. although the stihl has more raw power i don't really like how the throttle is kind of "all or nothing" and its hard to keep at a steady rpm for trimming around flowers and whatnot
