With the starter that supposed to be 75% easier to start.
I am familiar with echos I start system. I cant see shelling out the extra cash for it unless you have a disability! It also gives you more problems if your starter rope breaks or your started spring unwinds.

I've heard bad things about the easy start/ easy break models from many manufactures. I only run Husky and have been very pleased. Plus the thing will go through a pine branch as big as your thumb, no problem.

You should be able to find the HC150i at any Echo dealer.

I called 3 local Echo Dealers and not one carries the HC-150 i,
I only found 1 on Internet that had it for $299.00
So I ordered the HC150 for $245.00 free shipping and no tax.
