    I just got wind of a rumor that Husqvarna is buying Wright MFG. Anybody know for sure? Thoughts?

    Well, if most people are buying products other than yours, buy all the other companies up and then run em into the ground... Then people will have no other choice than to buy yours.

    I wouldn't say that. I love the husqvarna handhelds. they are light and powerfull and last with the best of them.

    I have to agree with that. Friend of mine has a Husq. string trimmer that i have ran quite a bit, and I have to say, it is prolly my favorite string trimmer i have ever ran. Nice and light, which is good when you are doing 15 or more lawns a day. I am pretty sure my next trimmer will be a 323L, and also am seriously considering buying a Husqvarna. chainsaw tomorrow for my tree removal job comming up.

    I am also a Husq. fan by default because they bought out Dixon mowers here recently, and also Bluebird.

    Another thing... didnt someone recently buy Ryan and some other stuff? Was that Husqvarna

    Hope this is just rumor.
    If not, somebody needs to drop in and give Bill a swift kick in the arse.

    The RedMax thing won't go through until sometime next year.

    I haven't heard anything about that one. I don't think Bill and Jim would sell out such a great product line. :hammerhead:

    I have Husq. 48 WB, trimmer, edger, blower, chainsaw. I like 'em all. The edger could use a little more torque, but overall I like everything I have, made by Husq.
