Stihl. I am homeowner but am still using Stihl handheld blower, chain saw, and string trimmer that are 26-27 years old and still reliable. I keep up nearly two acres so the are used quite a bit.

I've always gone with redmax, but now that husqvarna owns them i'm not sure. I've never been a big fan of husky hand helds, except chain saws

I have been running Stihl for over 15 years and have been more than happy. Little to no problems and if you do need parts they are very easy to get.

oops I knew I still had something to do - this will be my first for each of them, I run reg gas 87 and use redmax oil. Both start 1st or second pull unless its really cool in the fall, then its 3 or 4 pulls.
