Love the Stihl Stuff, but you no your gonna get sooooooo many different Responces. The 3 you've listed are great. Even Shidaiwa, Kawasaki and Husqvarna are great Too.


Dealer Service is a plus to. Just pick one.

If you have paid any attention to lawnsite threads it easy to see the number of failures with the 4-mix but that doesn't seem to be important to many people. The 2 stroke engines are simply more reliable than the 4-mix and both echo and stihl have straight 2 stroke so I recommend those.
