Yeah, elaborate on that some. I've got a 8 year old one that's trouble free and two new ones also trouble free.

Same here. Old and reliable. Sounds like garbage to me.

Someone needs to tell them that's it's 2012 Now! Great to know the F2330KHEDGE CLIPPER wasn't available in 2009 though, lol.

This unit looks pretty nice but it might be diesel and not gas and might be out of your price range.

Clearly in order to make such a statement you would have had to owned or operated everything they manufacture. What types of problems did you have with it and why did you keep buying it if you didn't like it?

I'm not the biggest fan of Echo equipment, but I only find myself qualified to comment on those units that I have owned and operated. To just categorically bash all equipment from a manufacturer without providing any specific information reduces your credibility to about zero, in my opinion.
