    Looking for a new brand of equipment and the husqvarna's caught my eye I would just like to know what you think of them and how they perform.

    I've got a Husky backpack blower that I have used hard for 4 years now and its bulletproof. Tons of power, blows harder than Monica. I havent even changed the rope yet. I've been running on Amsoil synthetic 100:1 and haven't had 1 problem. Wish I could say that for my Kohler.

    I've got husqvarna 225L and a 122L trimmers and have had virtually no problems with either unit. The 225 is a little heavy, but the new 325 is very light and powerful. Thanks, Lynn

    Trimmer,I bought a Husky 322L Grass Trimmer and the 225H60 Hedge Trimmer. Love both units. Example, last year had Weed-Eater brand hedge trimmer and the first job of the year it broke down. All in all it took 5HRs to do the job. Same job site this year with the Husky took only 3.5 HRS. I'm very pleased with the performance. Knocked 1.5HRs off time it took last year to do the same job. So YES I would buy Husquvarna Equipment. Just my opinion. Mowman
