I'm sold on Husqvarna equipment. I went out to my shop a few days ago, grabbed my chainsaw (which hasn't been run in over 6 months), primed it up and gave a pull. It started right up.

I don't know what size sapplings you are planning on trimming down, but I have to weedeat some pretty thick stuff around my pond. This is the string that I use, and it will power through some pretty thick stuff.

All my power equipment is Shindiawa which i'm pretty sure got bought out by echo now. All my equipment is over 7 years old now and got the crap worked of them up until last year when i got out of lawn care and still run on the first or second pull. I bought a stihl multi tool power head from the pawn shop a few months ago. It must of been stolen because it didnt have any attachments and i have not bought any yet for it. It doesn't even have a scratch on the plastics.

I still have a curved shaft Echo gt 200 that my wife had when we got married. It's a small homeowner yard trimmer. It hasnt been run in 4 years or so until Sat. Fresh gas, splash or injector cleaner and oil and it started pretty easy.

I can limp by with this one until I decide. Good news is I may be lazy and wait for the frost then cut the pond and entry one more time for the year lol. I've got a loaner offer on the Stihl R55 so I may run it a couple of hours and see how I like it.

Also google says the small engine guy I use services Husky so it's in the running too. He can work on about anything and 2 local places service Stihl.

Farr and Leadoff, good point on the better line and higher rpm. I haven't used a pole saw all year so odds are good I don't "need" one.

Plus a good pole saw will run $500+
