    So all of my 223 and 323 Husqvarna trimmer are starting to bite the dust after 6 plus years. And they don't sell them any more I have a 324l and I like it but I like the old ones better little heavy. How are the new 322l husq trimmer?? I have a 525ls and its ok also but not as good either. Whats everyone using? I think they messed up when the quit making them.

    Stihl 94r probably the way to go for a light commercial trimmer. I’m using an echo 3020 but the 2620 would probably be good for lightweight.

    RM 260S. Very light and extremely well balanced. I love mine. I had one that was a lemon from the jump. It happens, but this one has been flawless. Did I mention that I love it?

    Battery units replacing my 323’s. They much more comfortable and hassle free. Just get one without bulky battery and it’ll be under 10lbs. I like the T3000 w/2ah

    These the trimmers that are about $130?

    Seems awfully cheap for commercial/electric.

    No. Will be totally different. The T3000 on clearout. Very good deal right now if you want take chase on parts availability down the road. They cheap enough to toss though

    Going to try the Ego Pro w/carbon fiber shaft next. But not w/backpack battery. Just the pop in batt.

    T3000 w/2ah going to be hard to beat for weight/comfort. Feels like a good under 23cc gas without the vibration, noise or forearm burn and recoil start annoyances
