What do you guys think, pros and cons. I know all about going for the dealer suport but i just want your opinions on mower quality and the quality of cut/ performance.

What are you talking about? Deere or Echo? I didn't know Echo made mowers.
But Deere makes good mowers and Echo makes good hand-helds.

Deere does have some trimmers, blowers, hedge trimmers. Think they are made by Kawi with JD label on them.

I'm not sure, but yeah, I think they are Kawi's., but some years ago for MANY years, they (JD and Echo) were one in the same. All of "JD's" trimmers, blowers, chainsaw, hedgesaws, and all the stuff was all Echo. The push edgers were McClane, and the walk behind mowers were Buntons. Ah,...those were the days....

You sure they are Kawi's? I thought they were all Homelite. I know that my Deere trimmer from the mid 90s is a Homelite, been very happy with it. I was planning on gettig a Kawi anyway, may as well just get a Deere so it matches the other one LOL.

Yeah at one time it was homelite. I think they tend to change every few years.
