I have been migrating to Redmax from Stihl. The trimmers (2350 and 2460) are a lot lighter than FS90s, and they have been holding up well. I have 2 Redmax 8500 blowers that are much more powerful than Stihl BR600s. But the Stihl blowers are lighter and more comfortable. So we use the BR600s for mowing, and the 8500s for leaf cleanup. I have a couple of other stihl products like chainsaws, a combi-tool, and hedge clippers, but they don't need to be replaced any time soon.

I have been using RedMax for years. I run there 2460 weed eaters and they hold up well. I run there 7500 series of blowers. There a little lighter than the 8500 and for the price difference to power and weight i dont think the 8500 are worth the extra expense. I have a couple of 7001 that are 10 years or older that we use for back up when one is down and they still run great.

Redmax products are very simply and well made, easy to service and perform extremely well. Parts prices are much more reasonable than Stihl in my experience. The edger I haven't used, but would say get the straight shaft. The trimmers are great machines, very good power to weight. I know commercial guys who put five or more hours a day on their machines and they are approaching ten years old.

I used to be a huge RedMax fan. But when Husqvarna took them over, it just took a turn for the "cheap" and I haven't gone back. I do think I'll buy another blower since they're still the strongest on the block.

I'm odd since I like different brands for different things.

My edger is a Stihl FC90. Edgers are the only thing I like in a 4 stroke.

My trimmers are Maruyama. Best trimmers out there in my opinion.

Like I said, probably switching blowers back over to RedMax. I would go Husqvarna but the dealer in my area is not worthy of my business.
