    I have used Stihl and Echo for years. Both build strong products.

    Husky 326LS: Lightweight, powerful, dependable & under $300.00 new. I believe Kawasaki is the only other unit that competes in the weight category.

    I run Echo and Shindaiwa. No complaints about either of them. Awesome trimmers!

    I use a Husqvarna 325L trimmer which at 9lbs was the lightest trimmer on the market when I bought it 7 or 8 years ago. I love it. the husquvarna head is so easy and the thing is very well balanced. It always starts on second pull and even though every cosmetic part has broken, I've been through 3 trimmer heads, and the shaft is bent it still runs great.

    Who's received more than two years of daily commercial use from a Stihl FS90? I bought two and both crudded out long before I feel they should have. Ended up buying three old school FS80r units since that the dealer still had in stock. Tried and true, just too bad the EPA got involved.
