I've got a Stihl FS-90R and an Echo SRM-2601 and SRM-3100. Both of the Echos are 15-16 years old, and still start up pretty reliably, but there can be periods of hard starting and what not, as with the Stihl (not even 1 year old yet). I think both brands are great but Echo has a greater range of power options than Stihl.
