How come they are not even showing in the 2010 catalog. Only have the 327 stuffs.Husqvarna bought out Redmax over a year ago. There were a lot of different reasons given for it but the big ones were the Redmax blowers, all of the Husqvarna blowers are now Redmax blowers instead of the Kawasaki blowers they were rebadging in the past. One of the biggest reasons for the Redmax acqusition is for market share in Asia, Redmax is the biggest brand in handheld equipment in Asia.
The Husqvarna 426LST is the same as the Redmax BCZ2650T. Retail on the 426LST is $369.95. Husqvarna is also selling the 430LS which is the same as the BCZ3050T with a retail of $399.95.
BTW, what is the difference between the old 326 engine and the 327 engine? Do they modified for CARB crap? Are they harder to start and need more warmup? I compare the IPL and can't exactly tell.
