Best trimmer for the money
I own two of these trimmers along with an older Husky model and use them on a daily basis for my landscaping company. They are used literally 5 days a week for over 30 mowing weeks a season. I have never had a problem in the field and these trimmers see a lot of use. Biggest selling point for me was the power to weight. Lugging around 3 less pounds for 12-14 hours a day is worth every penny especially when there is no loss of performance. My guess is the people having issues with these trimmers have never owned a gas powered trimmer and either used improper fuel mix (or lack thereof), fiddled with the carb adjustments or they are just plain abusive. I own Husqvarna equipment (blowers, saws, trimmers, etc.) pretty much exclusively and will continue to do so for many years.

I purchased 326lS last season because I was sick of replacing line and mixing 2 cycle oil and gas of my old Troybuilt. It is worth the extra cost compared To a 2 cycle and it starts on the first pull. Every time. Line feeds with a tap on the head. I have over 6 hours of run time and have had zero issues. Great product, I highly recommend it.

There are better choices
Our trails association uses one of these for trail clearing. The cutting performance and light weight are great, especially if you have to carry them a long distance. But the starting procedure is somewhat complicated, especially if you hand it off to someone who hasn't used it before. They often flood the carb and then pull on it like crazy. This particular one suffered a backfire that caused over a $100 in repairs. The on/off switch broke once and the drive shaft had to be replaced from the very start. It still vibrates more than most. We've switched to Tanakas and Echos now. They're not as powerful but plenty light and cheaper to buy and maintain.

After owning one for a 3 years, I bought another one
I love everything about my 326ls trimmer. Bought a second one and give my old one to my son. Highly recommend this as strong, easy to start, and dependable. Only had service one time on my original and my dealer fixed it in minutes. Poor quality fuel is most small engine problems. I use Husq oil mix, 91 or high octane, no ethanol and sea foam additive. I appreciate good tools and machines.

I used this trimmer after it had rained all night. The weeds and grass were up to 15 inches tall in some parts. I was a little sceptical of this trimmers capabilities because it is a little smaller than my other trimmers from an orange and white company 90 and 110 models. This trimmer handled that wet grass/weed mixture quite impressively. I was stunned at the ease this thing blew through that mess. I wanted a new trimmer after constant maintenance on my other trimmers. I was tired of constantly having to adjust, tune and clean the carbon. I am very happy with this purchase.

More Power and easy to start
I have owed string trimmers that I bought ant the Big Box Stores but this time I went with a commercial version and am very happy. It is had to believe the power this trimmer has and is very light weight. I have back problems and this trimmer is so much nicer to use. Very happy with this purchase.
