I've had both Echo and Stihl along with a few others. Have had the best luck with Stihl, thus that would get my recomendation.

I have run Echo, Stihl & Maruyama, Echo is OK Stihl is better, my next trimmer will be a RedMax.

Stihl all the way. Call me biased but after four years the fs 85s are still going strong.

Although I don't have much experience, I'll take my stihl over the shindaiwas and echos I've used any day.

I have had excellent - excellent use with Echo. They last for years and years, and they are so easy to work with...like changing line and such.
