View Full Version : The Same Brand?

How many of you use only one brand for everything, like all Echo for 2 stroke and how many of you (who have more than one truck) have the same brand and color, same goes for the trailer. Or how many of you mix match equipment? just like to know?

I think alot of it has to do with what dealer someone uses.

I use echo trimmers and blowers, Stihl saws and Scag Mowers, and some old 4 stroke wb edgers....I have a good relationship with my dealer who sells these products.

Plus its easier to maintain spare parts...

All Toro mowers and one Bob-Cat. All Stihl 2-stroke. Trucks are Dodge and Chevy.

I'm with Rodfather.... run all the same stuff and if you have more than one piece of equipment go down at a time, hopefully you can rob a part from the other to get at least one going......
