33% say redmax/huqvarna 33% say echo/shindaiwa 34% say stihl.

Stihl wins with 1% Get a BG86. All kidding aside I have only owned a stihl and a husqvarna handheld blower and I liked the stihl better.

My Stihl SH 85 is going into it's eleventh year now, and it is still on the original fuel filter, air filter, and spark plug. I could not ask for a more relaible piece of equipment. It has been used, and I mean a LOT!. It starts easily, and runs like a wild banshee, and even more so since I switched over to 80:1 93 octane/Amsoil Saber.
