Thanks for advice on backpack blower couple weeks ago. I ended up buying the Husqvarna 145BT. This purchase though has thrown my plan of having the same brand of trimmer and blower. I really wanted to get the Stihl trimmer, which means a diffrent dealer and other side of town. Since I was at the dealer, he let me demo the Husky 326 and was surprised by the lightweight and torque. I always here everyone talk about Echo and Stihl trimmers, so I never considered anything else. How would this Husky compare to simmilar Stihl and Echo trimmers. Of course the salesman said it would but I need some other opinions.
