All redmax here.blowers, trimmers, edgers, hedge trimmers. Everything you by will have a problem here and there. It's mechanical and used in harsh conditions. I like redmax because they are still two strokes. I even have their backpack sprayers!

Spot on. Echo stick edger after 2 years of use is junk. Very true about the starting problems. My old srm 210 has outlasted an edger that was 2 years old. I am switching to husky, there stuff seems to start the easiest. I am no longer loyal to any brand, it is all disposal crap now.
