Echo or Stihl

I'm looking to buy an edger real soon. I'm having a hard time making a decision on what brand to go with. I currently am using an echo 225 series edger. It does an okay job, but I'm looking for a better edge. So, should I step up to a better model or go with a different brand to achieve the edge I'm looking for?

Thanks for any help

I'd agree, you need a walk behind for overgrown stuff, then go to the stick for the maintence.

I've ordered the "edgit" already, I hope I'll enjoy the difference.

Thanks all for your help.
