Ive used sthil, echo, red max, honda, and maruyama and I by far like stihl the best, easiest to use, most comfortable, and most powerful, only drawback is i dont like the cap system. jmo

i use echo 280S for line trimming and 400u for clearing. and fs55 for backups.
the echos are heavy units but i and the boys are used to it. I know the 280S out preforms the FS95 anyday (my buddy uses them for his bussiness) but im not sure if there even in the same spec catagory. i have noticed also from a 280, fs55 comparistion that the 280 is more forgiven with taller operators seems like the angle is different and you don't have to strain so much to get a even cut. I happen to be 6' 2"
