I still have not decided on what I'm going to get more than likely I'll stay with the stihls. Side note I live in VA which I think I'm gonna say is stihl country because there aren't any redmax,shindy,kawi, dealers anywhere around. One echo and husky which are the same dealer the rest is stihl. Maybe it's that way everywhere I dunno.
The Echo dealer doesn't carry Shindaiwa? All the ones around here do since Echo owns Shindaiwa now.
