    Is there a big price difference? I want it at a max of $350.

    Not sure. If there is a price differance it shouldnt be by much. I'll try to find out but it'll be a couple days. I'm about to take a mini vacation.

    I used to sell power equipment and have used many different types in my business but for the money the husqvarna 323l that is sold at lowes is a very good trimmer very lightweight and powerful I think it has a 26cc engine runs about 249.00

    I would take a look at Kawasaki. I am going to buy a trimmer from them to replace a Stihl that is on its last life.

    You did say you have a good dealer so maybe consider that. Have you put them to the test with a warranty repair though? Dealers seem really nice when you are buying equipment and get lucky and do not have any major problems.

    Thanks Will P.C., I take a look at kawasaki. As far as the dealer goes, just bought an edger (Husqvarna 125e) from them and a part broke on it and they replaced it for no charge. I think they will honor warrenties and such. However I have heard that is a problem so I will keep an eye out for that. ;) Thanks for the concern :)

    the shindaiwa is a good choice in my opinion, the 242 is well balanced and very durable, the one we've got is going on 6 yrs old and no major work at all and the speed feed head makes it so easy to use, acording to the shindaiwa website the 242's msrp is 299.99
