Summary:
Best damned trimmer for the money! There cheap, get two!

Strengths:
Have lawn service business for 25 years. This wacker runs like a raped ape, all day long!

Weaknesses:
Keeps running out of string! Actually, if it didn't run out of string, I'd probably keel over from a heart attack!

Summary:
I wouldn't buy any other string trimmer. I have had 2 of them for more than 2 years without changing a spark plug or any maintenance at all. It runs like a champ.

Strengths:
Light as heel at only 9lbs compared to 13+lbs of other models of same quality.

Weaknesses:
Are there any?

Summary:
Overall this is the worst gas operated tool I own.. My mistake for buying a husqvarna. I would have thought I could get over 30 actually hours of use time out of it.. Very unhappy customer

Strengths:
Mine ran for 15 days of use before I had any issues.

Weaknesses:
Then the button on the self feed jammed, and stopped working all together. So now I have to take it apart each time I want to feed line out. Doesn't start on 3rd pull like other brand, takes 5 to 10 pulls if it starts. After running it for 15 to 30 minutes it dies (doesn't run out of gas), then it won't let you restart it. This is the only Husqvarna tool I own, and I get blisters from the pull rope trying to start it.. not from using it

Strengths:
Well balanced, easy start, powerful. Best line trimmer I've owned yet. Easy tap line feed works well.

Loop handle assembly is a weak point. I had to replace twice. T35 tap head eyelets can dislodge and fly away. replacements hard to get. New head assy not cheap.

Summary:
Best weed eater I've owned, quirky but cheap and lasts forever hopefully!!! Gas lines are holding up perfectly, original air filter, clean in 2 cycle gas often. Change plug regularly your good to go!

Strengths:
Strong weed eater will cut through anything. EASY maintance, very durable. Mow 7 lawns a week for over 5yrs now. Fastest change of line I've ever used. You can flip it over and use it for an edger. I've put this weed eater through extreme use and it is still going strong.

Weaknesses:
First one I got, the pull line broke on the fourth pull to start. Second the same but this time I replaced it myself and has lasted ever since. When it gets hot the only way to start is to place choke on second notch. Will not start if no choke or choke is fully engaged. If I don't flip that choke, at the second lawn, it can take awhile to get started again. But will start every time with choke on second notch. It's part of my routine now. Cover over plug wire.

Summary:
I had high expectations for this trimmer when I purchased it 3 weeks ago. I am disappointed in the performance of this model. I would not recommend this model. I wanted to express my opinion since part of the reason I chose this brand was due to the good reviews I have read. If you are going to spend $300 on a string trimmer, I would recommend going with the 224L model because I have used one and liked it, or spending a little more and trying another brand.

Strengths:
Light weight. Good balance. Easy to load trimmer head.

Weaknesses:
1) I just bought this trimmer and it will not restart after running for a little while. I literally have a blister on my hand from trying to get it to run again while the engine is hot. A commercial-grade trimmer should be able to run all day and start dependably from job to job. This one does not. 2) Not very powerful. This unit has a 24.5cc which I consider rather small but I was not however very concerned about this since it has a 1.2HP rating. I thought that this would be more than adequate but am disappointed with the power. 3) The machine gets very hot compared to other models I have used. If your elbow hits the front of the unit, you will immediately be aware of it. It actually feels like the plastic is nearly hot enough to melt. I would guess that this is due to the fact that the engine is so well covered by the plastic casing unlike some other brands with more open designs. 4) The trimmer head does cut low enough. In order to get a really close cut, you have to hold the trimmer on an awkward angle. 5) Uses a lot of trimmer line. It appears to me that this machine runs through trimmer line quicker than other models I have used.

UPDATE FOR ABOVE REVIEW: I was actually discussing a 326LS, not a 326L. I have found that this machine works much better for my needs after I replaced the T35X trimmer head with a T25 trimmer head. I am also having less trouble starting it after running now. After using it with the new head and removing the muffler screen (although I don't know if this has anything to do with it), I feel that the machine is more powerful than I had originally thought. I have used more powerful trimmers but for the engine size and weight of this model, the power isn't bad.

Summary:
Best I've owned. Years ago I had a tree trimming business and owned Husqvarna chainsaws and they were best on the market at the time and I don't see any difference in trimmers. I will add this to my statement: Some people should read the book on their new purchases. Every tool is different in some way or another. Fortunately I have owned a few of the top quality gas tools, so I am familiar with them but they are always coming out with new designs and features. If you think you don't need to read about it and at least get as familiar with it before the initial use, you are not using good sense. Some people don't read and think something is wrong with the machine before they notice a particular feature and start changing adjustments on carburetors etc. The manuals are written for a reason. (Not just for dummies)

Strengths:
I was making a garbage run one a.m. being that my wife and I live in a remote mountain area and we take our refuse to a fenced in dumpster area. I opened one of the dumpsters to deposit a bag of waste and behold!! I saw a 326L E-TECH-II and it was all there. The only thing wrong with it that I could see was the bar was slightly bent, (like someone ran over it with a car.) I got it home and straightened it a little, turned it to (on) and primed it and it started first pull. Have used it ever since and it's much easier to start and runs like a stolen car and stronger than my Stihl FS36 and much lighter. I don't even use the Stihl anymore. I must be living right. Free stuff is worth saving up for.

Weaknesses:
If there are any, I have not discovered one.
