[quoteThe rest of the world is increasingly turning to China, even Husky are having some parts of their production done in China, so maybe if you buy a Husky, it could be a cheap Chinky, not a Swedish bit of quality after all- shock horror][/quote]

Bu***r me just when I thought I had it sussed. Had a look at Echo - very expensive compared to the Husky. Rang local dealer about the Husky 143R11 brush cutter - he quoted £580 (RRP) and when I said I could buy on line at around £400 he said "snap their hand off, I can't buy them for that". Best he could do was £500. Pity small dealers can't compete anywhere close to the big boys. Seems very unfair.
