Very comparable in power to the other commercial trimmers that i use. However, it is two pounds lighter than its closest competition. Very impressed and will only buy husqvarna from now on.

perfect tool for my yard
This is a perfect size and perfect power for my needs. We have 10 acres with a large lawn and long frontage and we maintain several walking trails in the woods. Brush cutter attachment cuts small trees and brush readily and string trimmer is great for trimming along the road and around foundations. I would like a strap as it can get heavy and may be tough for smaller people to use.

326 LS trimmer
This is a great trimmer. It is easy to start, powerful, and light. It does a great job and I highly recommend it.
Although it is not Husqvarna's issue, I would like to be able to shorten the shaft for added comfort when operating, as I am short (5'5") and cannot let my arms hang to my side when using it.
Great product though, so I can deal with a little discomfort.

New Husqvarna grass trimmer
Just got my 326LS today and I am very happy with it. It started on the second pull first time I used it today. My 15 year old Homelite has been retired for someone else to fight with. After I mow my lawn I want to finish and trim it not fight with some monster that won't start. I gave up after many years and trips to have the Homelite repaired only to have it fail to start after one or two times using it. When it was new it was great but after 15 years no not so much. The 326LS feels like half the weight and just as much power. The round line that came with it woked well but after a change to an aggressive triangle line the cutting ability took a big leap forward. Spend your money on a good piece of equipment like a Husqvarna product and you will be money ahead in the end. My Husqvarna chain saw even though it sits in my garage year after year I know will start and perform well when it is time to go to work.
This trimmer does not come with a harness which it should, the only drawback. I used the harness from the Homelite and life is good.

awsome trimmer when it starts
Just bought a 326ls, a great trimmer when it runs. Had it 3 weeks and has been to 2 different shops for a starting issue.
An intermittent problem that the dealers could not find.
I use it commercially as I do with my 223l (which is awesome)
I found the problem as it was getting intermittent spark--bad coil-- they are replacing it now.
It is advertised it in weighing in a 9lbs-not true my 223l shows the same weight in the manual and the 223l is lighter.???
Plenty of power for the weight ratio.
I will give an update when i get it back.

Best Trimmers on the market
I love my new trimmer. I had a Cub Cadet for about 7 years till it finally gave out on me. After getting this trimmer I never realize how heavy my Cub was. It has loads of power and combined with the .105 Titanium trim line I usually just run about a 1/3 of the power and it still cuts right thru everything. Starting is a breeze 3 pumps, turn choke on, one pull, turn choke off one more pull and it starts and is ready to go. Awesome piece of equipment. I also have the 125B blower and it also is a very nice piece of equipment. Starts on two pulls after being primed. Puts out some air. Light weight and easy to manuver.

My favorite trimmers!
These trimmers are great! No other trimmer has the combination of power, throttle response, and weight that these have. I also have a Husqvarna 325lx that runs perfect after 13 years of service.

Glad I upgraded!
I loved the 128LD string trimmer I was using on my 2 acres. The time came when I decided to go up a step and purchase Husqvarna 326LS. As much as I liked the 128, I love the 326LS! Great power, starts and runs like a champ. I expect this machine to last me many years. My only constructive criticism is that the anti-vibration devices could be improved to improve comfort for longer periods of usage.
