I have Echo, I think they are the best. Johnny has Stihl, he thinks they are the best.

Glad to help.

I agree with Patriot i have owned both and now use just echo. I think that echo starts much easier.

I have nothing but Stihl, and I know a friend that has a few Echo products, both of us like what we have. Depends on how close your dealers are and service etc. I personally think Stihl is a better product, see more of them out there, and have never had any trouble with my Stihl equipment.

I have both and like them both. Sometimes one will act up and the other won't sometimes neither will.

I am a Stihl fan myself. I own a few Echo products and like them also but overall I like the Stihl better. I also have to drive 20miles out to get to the nearest Echo dealer where I have a Stihl dealer about 2mins from my house.
